Put that vase back in the cupboard and give Teri Muncey’s seriously Insta-worthy spring wreath a go instead. Combining craft and flower arranging, this spring wreath will give you a beautiful addition to your home and won’t break the bank. Teri’s used just a few blooms in each, showing off the season’s finest to their full potential while keeping them purse-friendly.
We love spring wreaths so much that we’ve included a few extra spring wreath ideas at the bottom of this article so you can cover your home in the blooms of the season! For even more floral goodness why not make our paper daffodils and our spring cross stitch patterns?
- Selection of flowers and foliage (we used thlaspi, ranunculus, chrysanthemums and gypsophila)
- Florist’s wire, 24-gauge
- Coloured string
- Metal hoop
How to make a spring wreath
You Will Need
- Florist wire
- Metal hoop
To make the macramé hanger, fold two lengths of string in half. Tuck the looped ends under the hoop and pull the ends through the loops, tying the string to the hoop.
Position the four lengths so they’re hanging down from the hoop. Take the far left strand and lay it across the middle two strands and under the far right strand.
Repeat Steps 9-10 until you reach your desired length, then knot the ends, leaving a loop in between the macramé and the ends of the string for hanging.
Add some foliage to the bottom right of the hoop, using small lengths of wire. Next, add the gypsophila, building out from the centre of your foliage. Now your spring wreath will start to take shape.
Cut the stems from the flower heads, leaving just a small section holding the flower head together. Fold a length of wire in half, then push the ends through the centre of a flower, pulling them through at the back until the wire is no longer visible from the front.
Use the ends of the wire to attach the flower to the hoop in the middle of the foliage. Add more flowers to your spring wreath in the same way (we used four in total), then hang to display.
And that’s how you make a spring wreath! We hope you’ve enjoyed Teri’s tutorial and make sure you share your spring wreaths with us on Instagram using #molliemakers and #gatheredmakers.
