  • Spray paint the birch wreath. I used a turquoise and followed the instructions on the can. To see a video of how I painted mine, visit my Facebook page here.
  • Next, paint your initial. You can use any color you would like, I used a bubble gum pink acrylic paint. It may sound strange to paint this when we are going to be covering it up, but doing so ensures that any gaps between the flowers will still blend in and look finished.
  • When the initial is dry, staple and hot glue florist wire to the back of it as shown in the video below.
  • Snip the silk flowers off of their stems. You can use inexpensive flowers for this project. I like to use a mix of color variations and sizes.
  • It’s important to lay out the flowers now on the initial BEFORE you glue! Make sure your flowers are not so large that it makes it hard to see what initial it is.
  • Once you have the flowers positioned where you would like, hot glue each of them into place.
  • Look over the initial to see where you may have gaps. Add small flowers or even small pieces of moss to those empty areas.How to Make a Simple Spring Wreath With Initial by Southern Charm Wreaths
  • Once all the flowers are glued, attach the initial to the wreath using the florist wire you added to the back of the initial earlier.
  • Snip off any excess wire sticking out from the back of the initial.
  • Next you need a hanger. I used fun polka dot ribbon and threaded it behind the initial. Make a simple bow (like you are tying your shoes) and make sure your ribbon is facing forward. That’s it!
