This mini DIY project has been something on my plate for weeks and it took me all of maybe 7 minutes… I bought everything at Michael’s about two months ago and it all sat in my walk-in until this past Saturday. So here is my super-easy DIY Wreath:
What you will need:
– Burlap Bow with Pipe-cleaner (to attach the bow to the wreath)
Note: You can buy a pre-made bow for about $10 or a roll of burlap for $10 and make it yourself..your choice
– Twig Wreath
– 4 flowers of your choice
– Hot glue gun with glue sticks
– Wood Letter or House Number (I used my first letter of my first name since I live by myself)
Step 1: Plug in glue gun on a counter top or open space so it can warm-up
(you can also use a piece of cardboard so the glue doesn’t ruin your counter)
Step 2: Remove flowers from stems
Note: the reason this project stayed in my closet for two months is because I didn’t have a wire cutter to cut the stems off (idiot)… as I was trying to mangle them this weekend the flower popped right off (I know ..I’m an idiot)
Step 3: Once the flowers are removed from the stems.. position them on the wreath to where you want them..mark those spots with chalk or a marker (for your reference)
Step 4: Remove the flowers
Step 5: Add hot glue to the first flowers location..(put a decent amount – about the size of a quarter) then place the first flower on the hot glue, press and hold it for about 10 seconds. Repeat with the remaining flowers.
Step 6: Once all four flowers are glued on, position your bow to where you want it and attach it with the pipe-cleaner.
Step 7: Position your letter or house number to where you want it below the bow. Mark it with chalk or a marker. Add hot glue to the location and to the back of the letter/house number(s). Press and hold for about 10 seconds.
Step 8: Hang your wreath! (I used a suction hangar and looped it through one of the twigs)
