Spring Rosebud Wreath

10,443 Views
Create a pretty spring rosebud wreath with fake flowers!
Time: 30 Minutes Difficulty: Easy
Learn how to create a spring wreath using fake rosebuds, calla lilies and tulips.
You'll need your choice of fake flowers and a twig wreath form.
For this project, I used "real touch" fake flowers, which are different from silk flowers because they're not made of silk but usually latex or PVC. They look and feel much more realistic than silk flowers! Choose 1-2 main flowers and a 1-2 filler flowers. I used light pink rosebuds for the main flower and small white calla lilies and pink tulips as fillers.
Trim your flowers so that the wire stem is about 5-6". Leave any leaves that are 1-2" away from the flower, but trim the rest away.
Attached the flowers to the wreath form by intertwining the flower's stem with the twigs of the form. Because the stems are wired, you can wrap the stem around the form and not have to use any glue to hold the flowers in place. Because you've left 6" of the stem intact and you're not using any glue, you can easily remove these flowers to reuse in another project later!
Fill the wreath form with your main flower.
Fill in any empty space with your filler flowers by using the same intertwining and wrapping method.
Attach your wreath to a ribbon or wreath hanger and enjoy your handiwork! For more projects like this, please visit www.ashandcrafts.com!

    So very pretty! I love the simplicity of it with all the smaller pieces. Seems every time I try to create a wreath with larger flowers and décor, I always feel like it needs balance and then it looks so "staged" if you know what I mean. This has a natural look to it even with silks. Love it!

      @Gay Renner It is hard to say, as it depends on the flowers you can find. These flowers were leftover from my wedding, and at that time I bought it in bulk, so I was able to get the roses for $0.80 and the tulips and lilies for about $0.45 each. I bought the wreath form at Michael's and it was around $6-8.
