I normally don’t mind winter. We find lots of great activities to keep us busy and moving all season long. There is just something about THIS winter that makes it feel like it’s dragging on and on AND ON. Maybe it’s the constant state of freeze and thaw with double digit temps, but I feel like spring should have been here weeks ago.
I wasn’t planning on making a spring wreath attachment until we wrapped up St Patrick’s Day, but I need some spring in my life. So here we go!
You will need:
Some fake flowers (mine are hydrangeas from Dollar Tree)
Scissors or wire snips
Start by snipping off all of the flower stems from the wire base. I want to make my flowers curve around the shape of my Burlap Wreath so I will arrange and fasten the stems together in a long arrangement.
Slide the greenery on the stems up underneath the blooms. This ensures you have some green mixed in with your arrangement and keeps your leaves from getting tangled up in the floral wire when you attach the stems.
Using the floral wire, start securing the flower stems together working downwards to create a long arrangement. I did this for the white hydrangeas in one arrangement and the blue in another. My wire looks awful. I am sure you will do a much nicer job. Lucky for me, no one will see the wire when it’s finished.
Secure the two bundles together as shown below. When the are attached, snip off the extra wire stems with the snips to clean up the arrangement.
Gently bend the wire flower bundle in a slight curve to match the curve of the wreath you will attach it to.
The final step is to attach the arrangement to your wreath with a couple of lengths of floral wire. Now hang and enjoy!
Are you ready for spring?
Less than a month until the official start of spring! The countdown is on!
