I made a pretty Spring wreath using flowers from Michael’s Spring shop.
I’ve had bright pink on my mind this Spring and I was thrilled to find so many pretty stems in one spot! (I have to admit I went one step further, it was pouring out so I had it same day delivered…my new favorite thing!!)
I’ve had my Forsythia wreath up for awhile and it’s time for a switch.

Don’t worry…I’m not going to try and shove ALL those flowers into this wreath!!! I will be using them for a few different projects for Spring.
For this wreath I’m using a 24″ grapevine wreath...I wanted a big, bold statement.
How I make a wreath
I also use an odd number of stems for the showstoppers; 3 of the big bright and light pink peonies.
I used floral wire cutters to cut each stem from the bunch then I find the spot I want the flower and tuck the wire into the grapvine to secure it in place. I don’t use hot glue in case I want to take the wreath apart and use the stems someplace else next year.
After I had the peonies in place I started to fill in around them with some of the other flowers.
I’m using yellow and white flowers to play off the pinks. I tucked in yellow anemone flowers along with a few white poppies.
Oh, these little pink rose picks remind me of beach roses! They have some eucalyptus attached to them too. One went at each end of the wreath.
To finish filling in the wreath I wanted to add a couple different textures. The white thistle balls and coral berries, pink cosmos, and a few sprigs of colored lavender added some more interest to the Spring wreath.
Lastly, I added some ribbon. I picked a burlap with black dots; an unexpected choice but it gives a little pop.
For this simple bow I gathered the ribbon and made 3 equal sized loops then secured the bottom with a pipe cleaner. Then used the pipe cleaner to attach the ribbon to the grapevine wreath.
