I used an 18" Vine branch wreath from Hobby Lobby. You can find these at any craft store.

To secure Felicia Flamingo to the wreath, I hot glued scrap ribbon where I wanted to place 2 pipe cleaners. It will create a buffer so the stapler wont go thru the wood. I then stapled the pipe cleaners over and put some hot glue over for added security.

To secure Felicia to the wreath, pull the pipe cleaners thru the vine and twist and tuck the excess in the back or use your wire cuts to clip off the extra pipe cleaners.
Make 2 bows
Make 2 bows
There are plenty of bow-making tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest. See which bow you'd like to try and make 2 bows for the wreath. I used 1.5" & 2" wired ribbons to make 2 triple bows and twisted in place with a pipe cleaner.
Bow Placement

Secure the bows the same way you did Felicia. Cut off or tuck away excess pipe cleaners.
Greenery and florals

I picked up some greenery and matching florals from Hobby Lobby and Michael's. Clip them off the bunch with wire cutters.
Greenery first
Greenery first
I started with the various greenery first. You may hot glue the stems and place into the vine and cut off excess stems in the back, or simply just push thru with no hot glue. If you hot glue the stems, they will remain in place very well.
Matching florals
Matching florals
Stick matching florals as desired like so. You may also hot glue or just place and cut off excess.
Bow shaping

Since the ribbon is wired, go ahead and reshape your bows like so.
