A friend of mine held a wreath making party last weekend. I decided to keep the out of pocket cost to a minimal and hit the Dollar Tree. I found that I could get all of my wreath supplies right there! They had wire wreath forms, ribbon, fake flowers and leaves which all are great for wreath making.
Wire wreath form
Wide wired ribbon
Hot glue gun
The first thing I did was wrap the wired ribbon around the wreath form. I overlapped the ribbon a bit to make sure the wire was covered. When the form was covered, I just used a little hot glue to hold the ribbon in place.
The next step is to add the leaves. I plotted out how many leaves I wanted to use and arranged the colors so they would be even. You could do a random assortment of leaves but I wanted a bit of symmetry. Use the hot glue gun to attach the leaves.
To add a little dimension and texture to the wreath, I added the green grass to the middle of the wreath. I simply attached the grass with hot glue. If the grass stems are heavy, you can also use floral wire to attach.
