I have a double door entry and every season I make two matching wreaths to hang. Most of the time I reuse the frames and material I already have but this time I decided to start from scratch when I saw these gold crescent moon wreath frames at Michael's! They were $10 each with a coupon.
How I Made Easter Wreaths for $15 Each
I also got a bunch of greens, a carrot wreath and a bouquet of tulips. This all cost another $10. (I ended up using the eggs for something different)
The way I like to keep the cost for my wreathes down is by getting one bouquet of flowers and then cutting them up into a bunch of little pieces using wire cutters.
Once it was all cut, I split them into two piles for each frame
Then I started weaving it through the frame. I started with the long vine like green, sticking the wire end at the top of the crescent and then let the vines "grow" up the frame.
Then I weaved the majority of the greens in.
Next, I did the tulips putting each stem about 1/2 inch lower then the last.
I also bent the wire over at the end to keep it secure.
Then I started using the carrot pieces, again putting each one a little lower then the last.
I finished it off with some more greens. Then you need to cover all the wires that are left exposed at the bottom.
I used a big flower to cover the bottom and pull the whole wreath together!
