How To Make A DIY Year-Round Elegant Wreath: Step-By-Step Tutorial
1. Make Your Large Bow
If you have a sign, you can use that as your focal point, but I love to make the bow the centerpiece.
For the bow, I used a 4-inch wired ribbon that came in the wreath kit from Greenery Market.
My bow has a 24-inch tail and 12-inch loops. The first step is to pinch the ribbon in your fingers. Then, twist the ribbon and make your loop. For a detailed tutorial about how to make bows for wreaths, check out my bow-making tutorial. After making about 9 loops, cut the ribbon from the bolt.
At this point, you can either keep adding ribbons of different sizes to your bow or just stop with one ribbon, as I did. When you are satisfied with your bow, secure everything together in the middle with some florist wire.
2. Place The Bow On Your Wreath
Use an easel to hang up your moss wreath. Then, lightly attach your bow and see if you are happy with the placement. Stand back and try it at different spots until you are satisfied with the location. When you find the place you want to place your bow, place the wire through the moss wreath.
Fluff and reposition the bow loops until you are happy with how it looks.
3. Insert Flowers
Use the longer stems from the kit first because the longer pieces will direct people’s eyes around the shape of the wreath.
Insert the flowers one at a time around the bow on your wreath. Start on each side of the bow, being careful to keep both sides of the bow symmetrical. You might have to trim the floral stems, so they are the ideal size.
Keep layering flowers until you are satisfied with the finished product of your wreath. Bend the flowers, so they are shaped around the wreath.
4. Add Greenery
Next, add your greenery and filler flowers. Cut the stems into smaller bunches and add them a little bit at a time. Remember, longer greenery stems will direct people’s eyes around the wreath. If you want their eyes to go upwards, place the stems towards the top of the wreath. Place it all around the bow – the top and sides of it.
The greenery also gives your wreath more dimension. The green literally sprouts out of the bow.
To permanently attach the greenery to the wreath, dip the picks into melted glue before sticking them into the wreath.
