For this project you'll need:

  • Clothespins
  • Rit Dye - I used Lemon Yellow
  • Wreath Form
  • Brown acrylic paint & paint brush
  • Flowers
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Twine
  • Bowl or Bucket for dying

Put your clothes pins in a large bowl or bucket.

*For my wreath it is a 14" frame from Dollar Tree and it took 156 clothespins.

Cover the clothespins in water. Add 2 Tablespoons or more of Rit Dye to reach your desired color. Remember to shake the bottle up before pouring.

Let them soak for approximately 4 hours.

Let the clothes pins dry completely. Mine took a little over 24 hours stacked like this.

On your wreath form, clip your clothes pins on the last wire all the way around.

For your second layer, clip your clothes pins on the first and second wires all the way around.

It'll look like this after you get all the clothespins on.

Paint brown acrylic paint on the the first layer a little over half way. I also made the edges uneven to create that sunflower's center look.

*Optional, if you aren't up for painting, you could use brown Rit Dye and dye the first circle of clothes pins instead. So you'd have an outer layer of yellow, and a center layer of brown clothespins.

Add a burlap ribbon bow, and pull some sunflower heads off a bouquet and hot glue them onto your wreath.

Tie a piece of twine at the top for hanging.

Your sunflower wreath is done for you to enjoy.

    My clothespins on the last wire do not lie down the second row is perfect. What am I doing wrong on the first row?

    What did you use for the white center ? Nothing was mentioned but it looks like something is there because it just looks empty in the center.

      I haven’t made this yet, but what I am planning on doing (since I don’t like the empty middle), find a paper plate large enough to overlap the center from behind. Put some batting on top of it, cover with some brown material. Hot glue it to the back of the material and then glue to center of frame.
