Flower wreaths are the perfect spring and summer decorations, although they can also be used to mark other special occasions and holidays, such as weddings, anniversaries, or Easter. Whether you’re working with fresh flowers, dried flowers or silk flowers, making flower wreaths is almost always cheaper than buying them.
Double a length of floral wire and wrap the ends around what you want to be the top of your wreath form, twining the ends back around the wire to secure it. You'll use the loop at the top for hanging the wreath. Make sure the hanging loop sticks up from the back of the wreath where it'll be less visible, instead of the front.
Create small bundles of flowers by wrapping the stems with flexible wire attached to a floral pick (a small wooden stake). You can also bundle flower stems together with floral wire. The upper limit for your bundle size is, generally speaking, the width of the wreath form. How small you make your bundles, and how you shape them, depends to a large degree on your wreath size and the textures and size of your materials.
Lay your floral bundles out on the wreath form so you get a general idea of the proper positioning. Now is the time to make any major design changes or tweaks.
Attach your floral bundles to the homemade flower wreath using any of the following techniques. Apply white glue to the foam wreath form, then pressing the floral bundles into place. Note: you must leave the wreath flat until the glue is completely dry. Poke the wooden stake of the floral picks you used to bundle stems into the foam or straw form. Poke greening or floral pins, tiny U-shaped wires, into the foam or straw to hold the floral stems in place.
Work "backwards" around the wreath, laying each new bundle of flowers over the exposed stems of the previous bunch, with each bunch overlapping by about half. If you're creating a wide wreath work from the outside in, filling in the entire width of the wreath from outside to center before you move further around the ring.
Attach any other desired wreath embellishments using the same techniques--glue, floral picks, greening/floral pins, or any combination thereof. Only use glue to attach the flowers/stems/greenery directly to the wreath form. If none of your wreath form still shows and you still want to add embellishments, you'll need to use floral picks or pins.
