Easter Wreath Tutorial

Here is an easy Wreath Tutorial for $10.
Wicker Wreath-$5
4 Bundles of Flowers-$4
1 Ribbon Spool- $1

This is what you need; wreath, flowers, ribbon, pliers, and glue gun (not pictured, whoops.)

Take the pliers and cut all of the flowers off the stems at the bottom of the bundle. You need the stem long so that you can glue them deep in the wreath.

Now, start with one matching bundle. Here I did the white berries and placed them kinda symmetrical to each other. Place a generous amount of hot glue on the bottom of the stem, then weave it deep in the wreath.

Here is another bundle. These were cute Easter Eggs with little flowers.

Do the next bundle. These were the pink tulips.

Now yellow Tulips...
Then the last bundle.
You can add more or less flowers. There really is no limit on how many you can squeeze in.

Now for the ribbon.
I found the center of my ribbon by folding it in half. Then I made a simple loop knot for hanging it on the wall.

Take the loop knot and place it where you want the top of the wreath to be.

Now take the ends of the ribbon and tie a secure square knot.

Now, to make a bow...take the ribbon and fold each end back and forth, which actually made 3 loops on each side. Hold it there.
Next, take the ends of the ribbon and go Under the bow, each in a different direction. Then meet back at the top and tie it again in a square knot.
You will need to fluff the bow up and shape it the way you like. It was easy with this bow cause it had wire in it. Now you are done.

Now you can take a deep breath and enjoy Spring!
