This wreath was pretty cheap and easy to make. Read the rest to find out how I did it...
You can see a little better in this picture that there are 3 different colors of cherry blossoms on the wreath: pink white and yellow. Not only do I like how they look, but I got them at the Dollar Tree. The only better than cute fake flowers is cheap and cute fake flowers!
Total cost for Spring Wreath Project: $6.50
Grape Vine Wreath: $3.50 at Jo-Ann Fabrics
Fake Cherry Blossoms: $1 each for 3 branches at Dollar Tree
Ribbon: On Hand
How to Make the Wreath:
1) Trim the sections coming from the main branch off each cherry blossom branch and separate by color.
2) Starting with the pink branches, lay out the edges of where you want the flowers to be. Tuck the wire branches into the grape vine material. Use the white branches and use the same tucking technique to move toward the center. Where the ends of the branches meet, tuck some yellow flowers in to fill in the gap. Like so:
3) To hang, I just used a wide piece of ribbon to cover a metal wreath hanger I already had. Run the ribbon down the front or the hanger, at at the curve, twist the ribbon around to the front and run back up and over the door. On the inside, having dangly ribbon doesn't look too hot, so I tied a bow and taped it to the door:
Because I didn't glue the flowers to the wreath, it makes it super easy to trade out with other things if I want to change things up a bit.
