How to Make a DIY Summer Wreath
Step 1- DIY Summer Wreath) Gather supplies
The first thing you’ll need to do is gather your supplies. I went to a local craft store, but I’ll also share some Amazon links if that’s easier for you. (If you want a different type of summer wreath check out our Spring & Summer Wreath Compilation post for ideas and inspiration.)
To make a wreath like the summer wreath pictured above, you will need the following…
- Grapevine wreath
- Hydrangea flowers (whatever color you like)
- Tulips or other type of flower (whatever color you like)
- Thick burlap ribbon with wired edge
- Hot glue gun
Step 2- DIY Summer Wreath) Prep the area
Lay out a garbage bag or something on the table because you don’t want hot glue getting onto your working surface.
Step 3- DIY Summer Wreath) Make your bow
Cut a long section of ribbon from the spool. You can always cut your bow smaller so be generous. When you cut, make a little V shape so the threads stay together better. (You can also hot glue the ends to keep them from fraying.) Make a bow. Because of the wired edges, you’ll be able to maneuver it to the shape you desire. I personally like smaller loops on my bows.
Step 4- DIY Summer Wreath) Lay out bow and flowers
Before you glue anything down, you’ll want to cut your flower stems and lay everything out to make sure you like the arrangement. I used leaves from my flowers on the top and bottom of the arrangement to frame it a little bit.
Step 5- DIY Summer Wreath) Hot glue your arrangement
Piece by piece, you’ll want to hot glue your flowers and bow to the wreath. I suggest sticking the flower stems down into the grapevines for more stability. You can be liberal with the glue behind the flowers where no one will be able to see. Once you have everything glued, then let it dry for a while.
And you’re done! 5 simple steps to making your own DIY summer wreath.
