Easy Summer Floral Wreath

Mothers Day is just a few days away and I finally got my moms gift done! (Mom if you are reading sorry you are seeing your gift early!) I have only made a wreath once before and the only flowers that were on it were fabric flowers. I am just not good with flower arrangements so I had some trouble with this project but I think it came together nicely, thanks to the help of one of my girlfriends.

This is the wreath I made back in February. I think it’s time to change things up. Now that my moms wreath is done I have time to focus on mine! I am not a “wreath for every season” type of girl, but that’s mainly because I don’t have storage for them. I think I might need to find some storage because wreaths are so much fun to make.

Here is my burlap valentines wreath that is still up and it's may!

The floral wreath I made for my mom cost me less than $16. When I looked on-line or in the craft store to buy one pre made they started at $40 and went all the way up to $90.

Here was my shopping list (I could have saved more but I forgot my coupons 😦 )

  • Grapevine wreath- $4.99
  • (1) Red Berries- $2.49
  • Sunflower Bush- $4.99
  • English Ivy- $2.99


You will also need wire cutters and some type of wire. I separated the sunflowers by cutting them off the bunch down at the end of the stem. I wanted to leave the stems as long as I could so that I could weave them into the wreath. I did the same for the Berries and the English Ivy. Then I just started playing around until I found something I liked.

I hope that within the next week I will post the other summer wreath I am working on, its burlap and looking really cute!!

  1. How funny. I just made a wreath last night for my sister for mothers day. It’s burlap and has their initial on it. I’ll be writing a blog eventually so you’ll see some pictures 🙂
