We are so excited to be trying out a fun craft today with one of our newest craft supplies at Sunshine Shoppe Supply– as soon as we saw these adorable pink silk flower petals, our heads started to fill up visions of all of the beautiful crafts that this versatile craft supply would be perfect for! We cannot think of a better way to welcome visitors into our home or to brighten a window than with this bright and lively DIY Floral wreath!It is always such a pleasure to hang a beautiful seasonal wreath on our front door, but we are especially excited to hang this handmade wreath that we have covered in beautiful lace and flower petals! If pink petals aren’t your thing, this technique will work just as well with any silk flower that can be disassembled, such as a silk peony or a ruffled ranunculus. Both come in a variety of colors that could perfectly compliment any summer decor as you are making your floral wreath!
Supplies Needed for DIY Floral Wreath:
- wreath form
- stretch lace
- flower petals
- burlap (optional) or grosgrain ribbon
- additional flowers or flat back embellishments (optional)
- hot glue (low temp)
Begin to wrap your wreath form in stretch lace, securing with an occasional dot of glue. We cut a few trips of lace to layer and tie loosely to make a shabby chic look.
Decide how you would like to arrange the flower petals on your wreath. Do you want to cover the whole wreath, or would you prefer an asymmetrical smattering? Begin to arrange your petals, securing with hot glue once you are happy with the placement. The petals are thin, so they do not need a lot of glue- we found that a few small dots away from the center (so the glue wouldn’t ooze through the hole in the center) were plenty to solidly keep them in place.
Continue to place and glue petals around your wreath form. If you plan on using a second type of fabric to wrap your wreath, decide how much of your wreath you want to wrap at this point, securing with hot glue in a few places. We chose burlap for this, but a wide grosgrain ribbon would be pretty for this as well- especially if that is how you will be hanging your wreath once you are finished.
Continue to add flower petals to your wreath until you are pleased with the coverage. At this point if you would like to add additional flowers to add variety, we think that satin rosettes or burlap flowers could add a really pretty variety!
As you can tell, the technique for this DIY floral wreath is really just the beginning! What better way to usher in the warm summer days ahead than by beautifying your front door when you make your own fabric flower wreath? Now we can hardly wait for those warm sunny days ahead!
