With spring right around the corner, it is time to shake off those winter blues and welcome the warmer weather. Redecorating the interior of the home should boost the spirits and creating an attractive spring wreath is the perfect way to get started. This wreath has a minimalist look, perfect for a home featuring cottage-style décor.
You will need:
Step 1: Purchase a foam wreath form that fits nicely into the display space. Keep in mind that the larger the form, the more work will be required to cover it. A 14-inch form is a good size and getting someone to help cover it will make this project much easier.
Step 2: Choose a starting point on the form and hot glue a yarn end to this spot. Wrap the yarn tightly around the form, working your way around the circle. As mentioned in Step 1, having a helper allows you to complete this step faster.
Step 3: Once the form is completely covered with yarn, cut the end of the yarn and hot glue this to the form.
Step 4: Select embellishments inspired by nature such as twigs, silk flowers, and even flower-inspired buttons.
Step 5: Wrap the twigs with moss green or brown-colored yarn, hot gluing ends as needed. Hot glue the twigs onto the front of the yarn-covered wreath form.
Step 6: Hot glue the silk flowers onto the wreath in the desired spot. For a clean look, glue the twig, flowers, and other embellishments in the same area. To make a white flower stand out, wind some twine into a spiral and glue this to the flower center.
Step 7: Glue on flower-inspired buttons in complementary colors.
Step 8: Glue the ribbon to the back of the wreath, looping it so the wreath can be hung from a nail on a door or wall.
