How to Make a Spring Wreath


Add a breath of fresh air to your home with a spring wreath. Hang it on your front door, over your fireplace or use it as a centerpiece. Create a wreath with your favorite spring flowers, and display it year after year. Add baby's breath and a ribbon bow, and your wreath will be a one-of-a-kind creation. However you choose to display your wreath, when your family and friends walk through your door, they will know that spring has arrived.

Step 1

Wrap the metal ring with florist tape. Smooth the ends of the florist tape into place.

Step 2

Secure the end of the florist wire to the wrapped metal ring. Set aside.

Step 3

Trim your silk flowers and baby's breath to 6 inches in length.

Step 4

Place two baby's breath stems on the metal ring. Spread the flowers out. Lay a spring flower on top of the baby's breath. Wrap the florist wire firmly around the stems and the metal ring.

Step 5

Place a baby's breath stem and a spring flower on top of the wrapped stems. Arrange the baby's breath and flowers so they are not directly on top of the already-wrapped flowers.

Step 6

Wire spring flowers and baby's breath around the rest of the metal ring. Hold your spring wreath up and check for evenness and symmetry.

Step 7

Gently pull back the first group of baby's breath and flowers. Tuck in and wire the last group of flowers and baby's breath into place.

Step 8

Cut the florist wire. Wrap the end of the florist wire firmly around the wire ring. Smooth the wire end into place.

Step 9

Hold your wreath up and check for evenness.

Step 10

Bend a 6-inch piece of wire into a loop. Attach the loop to the back of your wreath.

Step 11

Wire a ribbon bow to your spring wreath.
