DIY 5 Minute Wreath

 So excited to have Cami from Tidbits here again today, sharing this quick 5 Minute Wreath Tutorial.  Really, who doesn’t have 5 minutes to pretty up a little nook/wall space in the home!

Have you noticed this year is all about purple? I’ve been seeing it pop up in magazines, throw pillows, fashion, and even appliances. 
 
The pro’s have even dubbed it the color of the year.  
 
Click here to see Pantone’s purple, Radiant Orchid.  Sooooo pretty.
 
But my favorite purple is from Sherwin Williams, Exclusive Plum.
 
After seeing purple everywhere, I decided I needed a touch of it in my home.

Since we recently added a baby boy to our family, this touch of purple had to be a quick touch of purple.  The baby in blue wants most my attention!!

I am going to show you how I threw together a 5 minute wreath for my entry way, using the perfect shade of deep purple.

Paired with my thrift store chicken egg basket, spring is officially welcomed into our house.
 
However, you can adapt this simple wreath for any look or season – IN JUST 5 MINUTES!!

All you have to do is change out the floral for a completely different look. Use the same wreath form over and over again, and you have a quick interchangeable way to spruce up any room in your home.

When my sweet girls saw what I was making, they discovered yet another use for a flowery wreath.

Ready to whip up your own crown . . . . . . . . . . . er . . . . . . . . . . wreath?
 
 
 
This is so easy, I have a hard time calling it a tutorial.  
 
In 4 easy steps, you will be done.
 
 
STEP 1 – GATHER
 
 
Go to your nearest craft store and get a stick wreath form, and any floral on a stem that floats your boat.  The possibilities are endless.  I have no idea what the purple flower is called, I just liked the look of it. 
 
 
I couldn’t resist these cherry blossoms, and I knew they would be perfect wrapped around a couple of mini wreaths.
 
 
 
 
STEP 2 – SNIP
 
Use a wire cutter and snip off the floral parts you want to use, leaving some stem to work with.
 
 
 
 
STEP 3 – STICK
 
Simply stick your floral inside the wreath form, securing it in between the sticks.  I did not need to use any floral tape or wire. (However, depending on your floral choice, you may need a bit to help secure your stems.)
 
 
 Continue working around the wreath until it is full.
 
 
 
 
STEP 4 – HANG
 
I used a piece of ribbon taped to the back of a frame, but you can hang it anywhere or anyway you like. 
 
 
 
 
And that is it!  So very easy.  
 
And so very purple.

    How many sprigs of flowers did it take? How much did it end up costing you?

      Great question! I’m glad you asked. For the purple wreath, I ended up buying 3 sprigs of flowers. They were discounted at Hobby Lobby for 4 dollars each. The wreath stick form was 3 dollars. So it cost a total of $15! Not bad! The cherry blossom wreaths were even cheaper. I only needed 1 sprig at 6 dollars. The mini forms were 1.99. So for 2 wreaths it cost 10. The cost of this wreath is really up to the floral you buy. I actually can’t wait for my lavender to bloom in my backyard. I was thinking after it dries up, it will be perfect for this kind of wreath – and free!

    I will be making at least one of these! Thanks for the tips. Perfect timing because I was just looking at wreath options. :)

    I need to make one of these. It would be a much better spring wreath than the one currently hanging on my front door. Thanks for the idea!

    New to your sight and so far I’m loving it, and the flower with no name I think it is suppose to represent Lavender.

    Thanks
