Doreane Corrin with David’s Floral and Design is here with a few basic ways to add a splash of Spring to your home decor.
Creating a Spring Wreath
-Scissors or wire cutters
-Hot glue or pan glue
-Twist tie for hanging wreath on the door,
-Wreath Base (grape vine or straw wreaths are the most common)
Start by choosing either the main color you want (like blue, pink, white, etc…) or a particular flower (like roses, tulips, etc…), and then add some other flowers that will compliment them well. Selecting varied shapes and sizes works well, too. The amount of flowers you need to buy will depend on the size of your wreath base, and whether you want to cover it completely or just give it some color (which is also the cheaper way to go).
1. Lay the wreath base on a table as you would like it to hang on your door, then add the twist tie to the back of the top so you can hang it on the door when you’re finished.
2. Next, prepare your flowers. Remove store tags, cut flowers to a shorter length (about 4 – 6 inches), with wire cutters or an old pair of scissors.
3. After you’ve got your flowers prepared, Start by placing flowers in the wreath one at a time, in whatever pattern you want until you have achieved the look you want.
4. If you’d like to add a ribbon bow or some kind of decoration, you can place it in the wreath as you did with the flowers using a little hot glue.
5. Hang on door and enjoy!
