Making a flower girl wreath is pretty easy. Last weekend I brought my supplies upstairs and worked on one while watching a "chick flick". Since my husband was out of town he was spared, not only the movie, but also how I took over the coffee table with all my goodies.
The supplies you need are:
- floral wire
- floral wire tape
- assorted flowers
- glue gun
- wire cutters
I happened to have floral wire stems already on hand, so I chose to use two of those; you could also use a strand of floral wire to start. First thing to determine is the circumference of the child's head. This was interesting since I don't have a child at home any more. So, I "googled", don't you "google" everything these days? Anyway, you'll find some interesting items when you google circumference of a four year old's head......needless to say, I didn't find what I was looking for, so I measured mine and I guessed. I twisted the two stems together at two different points to form a circle and then I wrapped the entire circle with green floral tape.
From that point on, I used my wire cutters to cut the floral stems and then glued and placed them around the circle to get the look that I wanted.
I literally purchased 4 different types of stems at Hobby Lobby; 1 pink roses, 1 white baby's breath, 1 pink baby's breath and 1 green/white balls. As I cut the rose buds from the stem, I then had the leaves to scatter around the entire wreath to balance the green with the color. The final touch was a ribbon tied into a bow and glued to what will be the back of the wreath. The whole project cost me under $8.
