DIY Tutorial: Seasonal Wreath

Here is a DIY craft that is super cute, super easy and super fast to put together.

I'm calling it "Seasonal" for a couple of reasons. The first one, is that the flowers are from the Clearance rack and contain Summer, Spring and Fall (I always LOVE a deal)!! The second one, is that I think it would look cute year round!

So let's get started!!!

  • Twig Wreath 8" (or desired size)
  • Floral Stems (of your choice)
  • Wire Cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun

To start, I laid out my floral stems and trimmed them using my wire cutters. For the larger flowers, I left about a 1-2" stem, but for the smaller ones, I trimmed them closer to the base of the flower. However, how you trim your flowers should be what works best for you.

Now that all your flowers are trimmed to satisfaction, it's time to start arranging! Play with the wreath and the flowers to create something that is eye catching to YOU!

After you come up with an arrangement that you like, you may begin attaching the flowers to the wreath using a hot glue gun.

Once you have attached all your flowers, stand back and enjoy your masterpiece!

As you can see, I only used about 1/3 of the wreath, but feel free to cover as much (or as little!) of the wreath as you want! I even thought of adding a butterfly embellishment, but we will see..... I am kind of enjoying it just as it is :)


  1. This is so great!! I came across this on and it served as all the inspiration I needed to venture into the world of wreaths. I had always been a little intimidated by this kind of craft but I printed out your post the other day, took it to Michael's and, by the end of the day, I had my own version, using dark purple flowers in lieu of the green ones for the upcoming fall season. Thanks so much for showing me how easy (and not so intimidating) wreath making really can be! :-)

  2. Thank you very much for your wonderful comment! Intimidation towards a new project/craft is something that I am WELL aware of. I am glad that I was able to help you make your own little creation :)
