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!

I love it! That actually looks so timeless and I love how you added step-by-step photos for this tutorial. I’ve never made a wreath before because I thought it was really difficult but you made it look so easy! Thanks!
I love the wreath. I’m totally going to try something like it –Hanna Lei

This looks so great!! recently with my Kiddies school project my Glue Gun has become my best friend. I would love a chance to make something just for me! Thanks for sharing such a great DIY!
I do a theme in my house each month and this would go great for when I do florals. You make it look so easy, too! 🙂
Oh wow, that absolutely looks lovely! I’m itching to make one for my room. Thank you so much for these detailed instructions. I’ll let you know how it goes!
What a cute idea. I have some other flowers here I can use for that. I love the style of the wrap.
So simple and chic! I also love silk flowers, this is going to be one of my next projects (this, and the floral chandelier). Your glue gun is the same as mine, by the way! 🙂
I have a weakness for wreaths and this one is no exception — it’s beautiful! What a great idea to poke a hole in the foam for the hanging loop! I would have never thought of that!
Wow! You did a great job! I love anything that has burlap on it…it’s so earthy and rustic. This looks easy enough to make, even for someone who isn’t crafty like me!
I really love that striped ribbon on this wreath and your technique for the knot in the hold to use as a hanger (brilliant!). I need to experiment with silk flowers more, you have really done some amazing projects with them! I just love this wreath!
I love this look! Great for spring but a nice modern touch too. Looks super easy to create too. I might need to try this.
This looks great for your first wreath and I love the black and white stripe with the pink flower. I’ve been pinning wreath ideas for over and year and have yet to actually sit down and try to tackle one lol, I need to soon though.
Love this! And you made it so easy for someone to follow along and make it! Great job Tee!
Thanks so much, Angela! I’m glad to hear the steps were easy to follow along. Hope all is well!
That is such a cute decorative piece. I love that each step of the way you hung it for a picture. It almost makes it seem like one of those flip books. Cute idea and nice pictures.
Thanks, Ashley! I’m glad you enjoyed the photos and this idea.
Your wreath is very lovely. I adore it! It looks so terrific.
Thanks so much, Lauren!
