What You'll Need
Using floral wire to create the form allows you to control the size of your wreath.
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Grocery store bouquets and greenery
A handful of flowers and greenery is all it takes to create this beautiful wreath. During spring, choose bold flowers like peonies and hydrangeas.
Measure the size you want for the wreath, and wrap floral wire three times to create a circular form. Secure wire with additional floral wire. Cover wreath form with greenery, and secure with floral tape.
Try using different types of greenery, such as eucalyptus, boxwood, dusty miller, and ferns.
Begin to add the smaller accent flowers using floral tape. Work your way around the circle, hiding the tape with each next flower you add. We used spray roses and kept them in bunches for a clustered look.
Choose small flowers like daisies, roses, and mini carnations for this step.
Add your showcase blooms to the wreath. Keep it to 2 or 3 large, standout flowers. We used peonies here. Overlap the flowers to hide the floral tape.
Our favorite bold blooms include peonies, hydrangeas, and large roses.
Once you've mastered the technique, this wreath can be made and remade for each season or celebration. Try a mix of eucalyptus and white flowers for winter or dahlias in the summer. For a permanent wreath, try using fabric, silk, or paper flowers.
Make it a flower crown! Simply scale down the size, and you've got the instructions for a stunning special-occasion headpiece.
