Steps for making an Easy DIY Rose Wreath Tutorial for Door
Step 1 – Start by cutting the flower heads from the rose flower bushes leaving approximate 2″ of the stem. Then remove the leaves by simply pulling them off the flower stem.
Step 2 – Next insert the stem of a flower head in the hot glue and insert it into the Styrofoam wreath form using a random yet compact placement. Making sure the stem does not pierce through the back of the wreath.
Step 3 – Continue adding flowers until the Styrofoam is completely hidden.
Step 4 – If you would like, you can hand tie a bow. I made a bow with 12-inch loops using patriotic colors. Simply attach with floral wire.
Step 5 – For a professional, finished look, hot glue leftover silk leaves to the back of the wreath to cover the Styrofoam.

The most common question I get about this wreath style is “How many flowers did you use?” I used a lot! Approximately 8 bushes total. The number of flowers you use will depend on the size of your flower heads and wreath base. In order to gauge the quantity needed, hold your flower bushes up to the wreath and estimate how many will be needed for 1/4 of your wreath and then multiply that number by 4 to fill the whole wreath.
