Mini Wreath Gift Decoration DIY

Mini Wreath Gift Decoration DIY

I know it’s still Winter, but it was so dreary outside I felt like I needed a bit of colorful Spring in my life. I have these flowers that I photographed back during warmer weather and I decided to pull them out to brighten up this week’s DIY project. They are a free printable you can use to make this project for yourself. This Mini Wreath Gift Decoration DIY is perfect for any present. Valentine’s is just around the corner, or decorate some wine you’re bringing for a hostess gift.

Supplies:

  • One pipe cleaner


Directions:

Step 1: Print out the flower and leaves printable onto your paper at 40-50% of its original size (you’ll need the flowers to be smaller for this mini project). Cut out however many flowers and leaves you will need for your mini wreath. There are enough flowers and leaves for about 5 wreaths.

Step 2: Tie your pipe cleaner into a circle by wrapping the wire ends together.

Step 3: Hot glue the flowers around the pipe cleaner circle. You can cover the whole circle, or just the base. Completely up to you.

Mini Wreath Gift Decoration DIY

Your mini wreath is done! Hang this cute thing on a wine bottle (use a bit of washi tape to secure the wreath to the bottle), or attach to a present, and you have the perfect gift.

If you love these little printable flowers, you can check out these other projects I’ve used them in: Floral Coffee Mugs, Cupcake Toppers, and Floral Drawer Pulls.
