How to DIY Wood Bead Wreath With Florals
Want to know how to DIY a wood bead floral wreath? It’s easy, let me show you how quick and easy it is by using just a few supplies.
Recent trendy boho farmhouse decorating wouldn’t be complete without a string of wooden beads draped over a bowl, a lampshade, a book, hanging on a knob, or anywhere you like. Another wooden bead decor that caught my eye was the gorgeous wood bead floral wreaths.
This is such a quick and easy project, it’s instant gratification. I love projects like that, don’t you?
Some of them are made with round beads using round wire wreath form. But, I wanted the wreath to sit flat on my front door so I used split wood beads.
Let me show you how to make a beautiful wood bead floral wreath.
1.5″ or 2″ pinewood split beads
Hot glue gun
Faux flowers of your choice
16″ Round wood form
Gather your supplies for the DIY wood bead floral wreath.
Let’s get started, shall we?
After you’ve gathered all your supplies, cut off the floral stems from the bunch.
Add glue to the split wood bead and place it on the wreath form. Glue the beads around 3/4 of the way, leaving the rest of the way for the flowers. I used 19 beads to cover the area of the wreath form.
Before securing the flowers on the wreath base think about how you want it to appear. Place the florals in it’s place and move them around to see which placement looks the best. I used three larger flowers on the bottom and worked the smaller ones on top.
Attach the flowers by tightly wrapping them in their place with wire. I also glued the flowers and leaves for reinforcement and to manipulate their placement.
This wood bead wreath with flowers can easily be customized for any season or holiday by swapping out the greenery and florals. Just wrap the florals securely with wire instead of attaching them with glue.
If there are any gaps, tuck more greenery or small florals to fill in the spaces.
This DIY wood bead wreath was so quick and easy to do, I can’t wait to tackle the next one!
