I am not inventing the wheel here or showing you some amazing project you haven’t seen a thousand times on Pinterest. However I hope I will inspire you to make some of these cute little wreaths on your own because they are SO SIMPLE!!!
When I set out to buy the supplies I really wanted a gold ring as my base. Hobby Lobby never lets me down…………until that day. I ended up coming home with an embroidery hoop, my second choice.
I had big plans to throw these things together that night and yeah that didn’t happen. Probably a good thing because I ended up at Michael’s a couple days later and found these!
Not gold, but nothing a little spray paint can’t fix! And for $1.99, they will work just fine. I found them it the floral department and had to wash them with some Dawn dish soap because they had some sort of oily coating. In order for the spray paint to stick, this had too be cleaned off.
I picked up gold spray paint at Michael’s too and used the 40% off coupon they always have on line, score. I picked up some simple greens at Hobby Lobby. I like using greens that include stems that are each wired. This makes it easier when arranging the pieces you will cut for the wreath.
I started by cutting the wired stems into individual pieces and attaching them one by one to the ring. I used gold floral wire that I had on hand. You cold hot glue them or even use fishing line to attach them. Since the cut pieces are wired all the way to the tip, you can also wrap them around the ring to help hold in place.
Keep adding greens until you like the look. I used 3 stems for each wreath because I wanted to keep it airy and simple. I also added a little sprig of green berries from a different greener stem to add some visual interest.
Attach a ribbon or twine and hang them! So simple and so cute!
Get busy and make some for yourself!! I promise they are “that” simple
