Lately, I can’t seem to get enough of projects using silk flowers. My fixation continues on the blog today as I share my “Modern Rose Bloom Wreath” as part of the Summer Craftacular Blog Hop. Be sure to check out the lovely summer-related projects at the end of this post.
The craft that I am featuring today is actually my very first attempt at making a wreath. With summer being here in a few weeks, I thought I would create something that would give my front door a dose of floral appeal. 🙂
1) Foam wreath (12 inches)
2) Striped Ribbon
3) Glue gun
4) Burlap ribbon (1.5 inches wide)
6) Silk rose flowers and leaves (1 large bloom and another set of smaller rose blooms)
Wrap foam wreath with burlap ribbon. Make sure to glue both ends of the ribbon onto the foam. Don’t worry about not being able to cover entire foam.
Poke hole into exposed foam and place knotted twine inside. Once fitted, you can add glue into hole to secure twine.
Wrap striped ribbon around top of wreath. Be sure to leave hanging loop exposed for hanging.
Poke hole into bottom right corner of wreath. This is where you will place your large rose bloom.
Place hot glue on rose stem and insert into hole.
Insert the small rose stems into foam. Secure with glue.
Place rose leaves near the rose buds, creating a natural look. Secure onto burlap with glue.
This “modern rose bloom wreath” is all done! Simple right? 🙂
Here’s how my wreath looks on the wall in my foyer.
I ultimately placed the wreath on my front door. It makes me smile every time I leave or approach my driveway.
I may never buy another wreath again. Love that it’s an easy D.I.Y. project!
