Spring Wreath Supplies

step by step INSTRUCTIONS for making the garden seed packet wreath 

Spring seed packet Wreath On Shed

STEP 1: protecting seed packets

If the wreath will be outside on a shed, potting bench or patio, you may want to protect the seed packets from weather conditions like rain.  

Brush a coat of Outdoor Mod Podge on the front and back of the seed packets.  This product is water-resistant, not waterproof but will help the wreath last longer. Spring Wreath Mod Podge on Seed Wrappers

STEP 2: wrap wreath form with ribbon

Although any ribbon can be used, wide burlap ribbon wrapped around the wire circle wreath works really well and is steady and durable.

The entire wreath will be covered with ribbon except for one section.  Leave one section uncovered.

Begin with the curved side of the wreath facing down toward your work surface.  Slide the ribbon underneath the smallest rung on the wreath. Spring Dollar Tree Wreath Start Wrap Fold it and glue it in place.  

Flip the wreath over and begin tightly wrapping the ribbon around the wreath overlapping the ribbon slightly as you go.

When one roll of ribbon ends, use tacky glue or a hot glue gun to adhere the ribbon end to the back of the wreath.  Press gently to secure. Spring Wreath End WrapTo start the next roll of ribbon, secure the end to the back of the wreath with glue.

Continue wrapping and overlapping the ribbon until there is only one section left.  With a scissor cut the ribbon and glue to back. Spring Wreath Frame Wrapped

STEP 3: Prepare flowers for garden wreath

It is necessary to cut the artificial flowers with their stems from the floral sprig. 

A pair of wire cutter pliers makes the job easy. 

Hold the wire-cutting pliers in your right hand and fully open them (reverse if you are left-handed). With the artificial flower in your left hand, place the stem in between the wire cutter jaws, all the way up to where the jaws are hinged together (where the cutter is). 

Now, close the jaws of the wire cutters quickly and firmly. You’ll hear a snap as the wire cuts. Spring Wreath Flowers

Once the flowers are cut from the sprig, they need to be made into two bundles of flowers.

Take the flowers from one of the sprigs and bundle the stems together.  Circle the zip tie around the bundle.  Take the end of the tie and thread it through the square notch on the back of the tie. Now, tighten the tie until it is securely around the flower bundle. 

After securing, trim off the excess zip tie plastic. Spring Wreath Secure Bunch with Zip Tie

Repeat by making a second bundle.

Preview the wreath by placing the two bundles facing away from each other in the unwrapped wreath section. And the gloves under the bundles on either side.  Refer to the following picture. Spring Wreath Add Flowers

STEP 4: Attach Gloves

Once you like the wreath arrangement, attach the gloves to the wreath using hot glue or tacky glue.

Also, use a dab of glue to attach a few of the fingers to the wreath.

STEP 5: attach the floral bundles

Lay out your floral bundles at the top to determine placement again. If the stems are too long, use wire cutter pliers to cut them shorter.

Then take a zip tie and attach one bundle to one of the middle wreath rungs.  Attach the other floral bundle to the other middle rung with a zip tie. 

Flip the wreath to the back.  Make sure the zip ties are very tight.  Trim off the excess zip tie plastic.

STEP 6: attach bow to garden spring wreath

Make a loopy bow. At Dollar Tree, I found ribbon with bees which I felt was quite appropriate for this wreath.
