Spring Wreath Tutorial

4 Materials
Starting with a grapevine wreath base, and using several design elements, you can create a beautiful spring floral wreath that will last through the season and beyond.
The first thing to do is get your wreath base, whatever you like to use. My favorite base is grapevines because they hold up almost forever, and can be taken apart and reused. This one has seen a few incarnations, so to freshen it up I spray painted it white.

Gather some silk flowers. Tulips really look like spring, so I used them in pink and white.  I also used a cluster with purple and yellow flowers, along with a cluster of jonquils in yellow and white.

Glue your flowers onto the wreath. Using the Fibonacci sequence will tell you how many of each element will look nice. For those not familiar with this, it is everywhere in nature, and makes a pleasing arrangement whether you are arranging flowers, or putting borders on quilts.  The sequence is made by starting with 0 and 1, adding together the last two numbers to get the next one.  So, 0-1-1-2-3-5-8-13 and so on.

Begin by putting your largest items on first and work down to smaller.  So, I cut five pink tulips and three white ones off their main stems and placed them on the wreath.  Secure using hot glue.

Place the flowers around the edge for 3/4 of the wreath space. Add a wide ribbon bow offset to one side, allowing the tails to extend downward. More detailed instructions are on my blog. Thanks for reading!
