Summer Flamingo Wreath
Summer is a time for fun and tackling those DIY projects. This cute Felicia Flamingo wreath is the perfect DIY to jazz up your front door.
I used an 18" Vine branch wreath from Hobby Lobby. You can find these at any craft store.
This adorable wooden sign was designed by "Shut the Front Door Virtual Hangers & Paint". They design door hangers and have virtual paint parties. Check them out on Facebook here...https://www.facebook.com/stfdoorhangers/
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.
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.
Secure the bows the same way you did Felicia. Cut off or tuck away excess pipe cleaners.
I picked up some greenery and matching florals from Hobby Lobby and Michael's. Clip them off the bunch with wire cutters.
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.
Stick matching florals as desired like so. You may also hot glue or just place and cut off excess.
Since the ribbon is wired, go ahead and reshape your bows like so.
After you reshape the bows, you may cut off any excess stems in the back. Your Felicia Flamingo Wreath is now ready to bring smiles on your front door.
