Make this pretty spring flower wreath with burlap, lace and handpainted wood flowers!
I made this spring flower wreath on one of those rare sunny saturdays when it’s still technically winter but for some reason we get one warm day. O played pretty much the entire day outside with the neighbor girls, happy as clams imagining that the swingset was a ship and they were on a grand adventure (watch out for that shark!).
And baby V took decent naps for one so I got to sit at the dining room table and just make a mess. I was definitely dreaming of spring the entire time and I think it turned out looking very much like that. At least I hope it did.
Anyway, it all started with these cute wood laser cut flowers I found at Michaels. The craft stores have really been upping their game lately, don’t you think? I’m finding lots of current, well-designed supplies which is a big change from how craft stores used to be when I was younger and they were filled with things that grandmas would love. (No offense if you’re a grandma!)
I spent a good hour painting them and it was just delightful and quiet. I felt a lot calmer when I was done. Anyway, here’s how I put it all together:

Wood flower shapes (these are similar or these would also work-they’re a bit smaller but cute!)
Burlap Lace Ribbon (similar)
Spring Flower Wreath Instructions
1. First, I painted the wood flowers… 2. Then I wrapped the wreath form in the burlap/lace ribbon. My ribbon was really wide so I cut it in half width-wise. I also didn’t wrap the ribbon around and around because sometimes it’s hard to get that even (and it uses up more ribbon). Instead I wrapped short pieces just around to the back and glued them individually. No one will see the back so this is a great cheat! 3. Then I arranged my flowers and hot glued them on. I also glued a little loop of string to the top back for hanging and that was it! This would be a really fun project for a craft night with friends!
