Make this pretty vintage DIY floral wreath using a combination of faux and dried flowers in this step-by-step tutorial. | DIY | wreath | craft

~ This post first appeared in the home and lifestyle blog Pastels and Macarons  ~

I’ve been drooling over market-style floral wreaths for a long time now so I finally decided to create my own. This DIY version is particularly unique, however, incorporating a delicate mixture of dried and synthetic florals in a fresh and modern way using a geometric wreath frame. It’s a great way to fuse vintage floral decor with modern sensibilities.

For those of you who have been following the blog for a while now, you’ll know that I enjoy freshening up traditional crafts. A little bit rustic and a little bit modern, my home is dotted with unexpected decor choices that create interest in my space. Whether it’s a modern color block wreath DIY on the door of our vintage-inspired stone bungalow, pinecones wrapped in brightly coloured yarns placed atop a rustic sideboard, or a traditional weaving on our wall that incorporates gorgeous teal, gold, and white yarns (see my Introduction To Weaving to see how it turned out). I love adding modern elements in traditional decor and today’s DIY is no different.

Here’s how you can create your very own fresh and pretty vintage floral wreath:

MATERIALS

Pretty Vintage Floral Wreath - materials needed

  • square wire wreath form
  • mixed florals (dried and/or synthetic)
  • floral wire
  • scissors
  • wire clippers (not pictured)

STEPS

Step 1:  Start With Your Corners

Bundle together 4 of the same florals by wrapping floral wire at the base of each bundle. Using the same floral wire, attach each bundle to the wreath frame.

Step 2:  Fill The Spaces In Between

Gather floral bundles for each of the four remaining spaces available. To create variety, try using a different colour for each space. But to create cohesion, mix in greenery within each of the bundles as shown in the example below.

Then attach the bundles, one at a time, to the wire frame.

Be sure to tuck the tail of each bundle underneath the corner florals. This ensures that your floral wire remains hidden.

Continue adding smaller bundles to any bald or uneven spots to fill out your wreath.

Tip:  To ensure a smooth transition between each bundle, mix two types of florals at the point where your wreath transitions from one floral type to another. In this case, the transition happens to be in and around the corners of your frame.

Give yourself plenty of time to work on the details, adding flourishes here and there. And remember to be patient with yourself as it all comes together 🙂

Step 3:  Shape Your Wreath

Once you have filled in any bald or uneven spots, begin trimming your wreath around the edges until you are happy with your form.

Step 4:  Hang & Enjoy!

Now simply hang your creation and enjoy!

    Love this wreath, Jelica! It’s absolutely gorgeous and perfect for this time of the year. Those floral arrangements are just beautiful and go together so well. Love the idea of a square wreath instead of a traditional round wreath!

      I love geometric decor and thought it might be fun to create a square wreath using a ‘traditional’ floral arrangement. I love mixing modern with traditional/vintage style. It was a lot of fun to make!

      I was looking for something a little out of the box with this wreath. I had had my eye on some square wreath forms at the craft store for quite some time and decided to use one for this DIY. It was fun to experiment with traditional florals, but with a modern twist 🙂

      I must admit, I enjoyed picking out the colours as much as I did putting the wreath together. I did not pre-plan it, but made my choices based on what was available at my local craft store. Glad you like it, Beverly 🙂

        It’s lovely! I tend to choose the color of flowers for projects the same way. I’m stopping back in to let you know I’ll be featuring this at tomorrow’s Snickerdoodle Party. Hope to see you there!
