Today in the wreath shop we’re making a pretty and bright butterfly wreath for spring with this beautiful butterfly from Carolina Pottery! They also have it in black and white but I think we all need a little colorful spring cheer right now, don’t you? Read the instructions below or watch the video at the end to learn how to make this project yourself.

Supplies for the Butterfly Wreath
You can find the same moss wreath and butterfly that I used at Carolina Pottery. There are several locations here in the South, but if you can’t get to one yourself, check out their online shop.
The flowers and greenery for this wreath were all from Greenery Market on Etsy.

Steps for Making the Floral Butterfly Spring Wreath
Step 1 – First, attach a small piece of foam to the bottom of the wreath so we have a base for the flower arrangement. Use one or two zip ties to secure the foam, then cover it with a bit of moss using floral pins.
Step 2 – Now figure out how you want your butterfly to sit, and use floral wire to attach it to the wreath in several places. Since this isn’t a grapevine wreath, it’s a little tricky. Watch the video below to see how I do this without the wire showing.
Step 3 – Next we’ll make the bow. I did mine with three loops of the first ribbon, three loops of the second, and then one extra loop of the first color. There’s no right or wrong way to make your bow. Just do what looks good to you. Shape the bow how you like it, then use floral wire and a wooden pick to attach it to the front of the foam.
Step 4 – Now we’re going to separate the stems on the greenery bushes and Glue them into the foam around the back of the bow to make a green base for your flowers.
Step 5 – And of course you can’t have a butterfly arrangement without flowers! Trim up your bushes into stems and add them in above the greenery. You can keep them behind the bow it you’d like, but I love the look of having flowers come out through the bow. Just start in the back and keep adding more layers of flowers until it’s nice and full.
And that’s all there is to it!
