How To Create Your Own Designer Wreath

Hopefully you noticed my friend’s gorgeous spring wreath in yesterday’s post: easterwreath

I’m sure you’ve seen these ready-made for sale in boutiques, craft stores and home stores for top dollar.  But it’s easy to create your own for a fraction of the cost. My friend was kind enough to break down her process so I could show y’all how she did it.

She started with a grapevine wreath and a mossy twig/wire basket:  easterwreath3 easterwreath4

Attach the two together using floral wire or whatever type of wire you have available: easterwreath5

Now your wreath/container should look like this:  easterwreath6

For the next steps you’ll need some floral foam and some moss:


She used the kind of moss that comes in sheets.  This makes it easy to line the inside of your basket so the foam doesn’t show through. easterwreath8

Line the inside of the basket with moss and stick the foam in: easterwreath9

Now for the fun part! Gather your floral stems, picks, sticks and/or filler.  This is where you can spend as much or as little money as you want.  Hobby Lobby and Michael’s almost always have their florals on sale half off.  I think it’s good to have a variety of textures and heights.  You can spend a little more on one or two large elements and get the inexpensive stuff for filler.


Begin arranging your elements in the basket, sticking them in the foam and using your best judgment.  Looks like she started with the taller stems in the back and filled in up front with flowers.  You can always go back and add or subtract as needed.

Doesn’t it look fabulous?!  With just a little time and creativity, you can create your own boutique-style designer wreath!
