Step One: Plan Your Wreath Design

The first thing we need to do is plan our wreath design. We can have fun here by mixing different colourful dried flowers and arranging them on one side or making it symmetrical… it depends on your style.

Step Two: Learn How to Work With Dried Flowers

When you work with dried flowers, you can prevent the fragile stems from breaking by adding tape to them first and then florist wire. Make sure you add the tape gently.

Step Three: Create Mini Bundles 

Wrap small bundles of flowers together with your floral tape, ensuring to use a mix of different textures and colours. You can make them in different sizes, too.

Step Four: Attach the Dried Flowers to the Rings

Start working with the largest part you’ll display as the ring base, grab your flower bundles and using your florist wire wrap the flowers onto the ring base by looping the wire around until the stems feel tight.

Step Five: Finish the Wreath’s Details

Using your hot glue gun, add bundles of flowers to the ring by covering the floral and wire tape and adding more movement to the wreath. 

Tip: Use a hot glue gun mat to make this part easier.

Step Six: Trim the Ends

After your hot glue is completely dry, grab your scissors and trim the ends of your dried flowers.

Step Seven: Add Ribbon

After adding all of the flowers, cut a piece of ribbon and attach it as a loop on top to make a hanger. Feel free to use your favourite ribbon for this part.
