Spring Floral and Twine Wreath

You guys, I am SOOOOOOOO ready for Spring!! 
We literally still have snow on the ground that happened on Christmas Eve and it has just been snowed upon a couple times. 

So since I am longer for Spring, I went ahead made myself a new wreath to hang up once the weather finally decides it would like to stay above the freezing mark and to say I love it is an understatement. 

 This is a rather easy project as well and can be done in one afternoon.

Here's how to make one for yourself.

Supplies:
-Styrofoam Wreath Form
-Faux flowers (I found these super real looking and feeling flowers at Michael's)
-Rope 
-Twine
-Hot Glue Gun
-Ribbon
-Wire cutters


Begin by snipping all the flowers down using wire cutters. Leave a short stem so you can push it through the Styrofoam form but make sure it is shorter than the depth of the form.

Next, hot glue the end of the rope to the back side of the wreath. 

 Wrap the rope around the wreath form gluing the ends down.

I only bought 2 things of the rope to wrap half the wreath but you could buy enough for the whole wreath.

I took small twine to wrap the rest of the wreath to make it easy to place the flowers right where I wanted them and it just helped cover up the rest of the wreath form from different angles.

Then all you have to do is take the flowers and push them where you would like them.

Begin with the large flowers and then fill in with smaller flowers and leaves. 

I just tied some ribbon to the top to use for hanging.

 And it is done! 

I seriously love how real these flowers look! They are amazing!! 

Now, if only Spring would show up and stay awhile!! 


How is your weather and are you ready for Spring like I am?!
