Hi there everyone! Today, I am sharing how to make wildflower burlap spring wreath.
I like the wildflowers even if they are faux, they do look more realistic than the silks imo.
Last week when I shared my Spring bird plate, you caught a glimpse of the vase filled with them.
Gosh, I rememeber back in the 80’s and 90’s when I decorated with so much fake greenery it was ridiculous. I despise it now. Especially on top of cabinets, around windows, etc. I like wreaths, and I don’t mind faux flowers in them, but that ivy stuff is for the birds. They still sell it too. Who the heck is using it???
This is another really simple wreath idea.
Start with some simple supplies:
Round foam wreath form
wildflowers (Dollar tree)
hot glue gun
Wrap your foam wreath overlapping the burlap just so and pulling tight as you go.
Once it is completely wrapped hot glue the last piece to the back of the wreath form. And yes, that is black craft paint on my thumbnail. The day I made this wreath, I also did crafted my bird spring plate.
I used the moss ribbon to secure my wildflowers. I cut some of the ends off of the flowers to make them smaller. I have mentioned, I used the wire cutters and they are great. I feel like I am a dentist when I use those. Snip, snip, snip..just like they do on the kids braces lol!
The sweet smell of Spring is in the air!
Here’s a snap shot of Spring so far around here.

And it’s only the beginning of March!
Thanks for stopping over today. If you are not a regular, I would love to see you back again.
LOVE the wreath, Debbie. Another great and easy idea! I’m off to the store soon. 🙂
You have to send me some pics Judy!
Debbie I had to chuckle about all the greenery. On my last trip to Florida I strippped my Grandmothers house of it all. That crap was everywhere and had to go. She thought the place needed afface lift and I agreed so I went to work decluttering all that dusting stuff. My how it collects the dust and just looks dreadful. I like the look of several of the faux’s they have on the market nowt too and I think they look very real, your new wreath is stunning 🙂
Thanks Dawn! Your Gram must be thrilled with the fresh look. It was the thing to have 20+ years ago. UGH..looking back why LOL!?
Beautiful wreath Debbie…i know what you mean about the faux ivy….The last of of faux greenery is my faux fern which truly looks real….people make comments on how I can keep these ferns looking so great….the faux flowers and greenery went into the yard sale a few years ago….and believe it or not, they were the first things that sold….Glad that is just craft paint, as I thought, oh no, she smashed her thumb!….Beautiful mantel Debbie!…
HAHAHA!~ No, I am very messy crafter Shirley.
I laughed when you said it was craft paint on your thumb as I thought it was nail polish and you REALLY needed a manicure, LOL!!! Love the wreaths, all of them. The bedroom and mantle look great too! I am so happy it is almost SPRING!!!
Me too Pinky! I do need a manicure btw lol!
Thanks for the cute and easy to do wreath idea. I think I might even be able to make one.
Please tell about the black chandelier and the gorgeous framing in the one picture.
They are awesome. My Grand Daughter told me that I was too old to say awesome but I did anyway.
You are never too old to say awesome! The chande that you see is actually a candle holder. My husband and I bought it for our ten year anniversary which was now 12 years ago at Z-gallery. The mirror is vintage and we found that at a thrift store a few years back. Thank you.
The wreath is very pretty, Debbie! I’ve never seen moss ribbon and that is a very clever way to arrange and attach the wild flowers! Your house just says Spring in a beautiful way. Now what will you do to keep busy? LOL
I had never seen it either Kris. that is why I had to try it:) I love it.
Love it Debbie! I wonder about that ivy too!! Crazy!
Beautiful wreath share. Always nice to catch up with you. Have a good week. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Debbie… I love your home décor. I love your guest bedroom. The wreath is a great idea — love it, too…… I’m going to try to do one like it….. I said try…. haha
You can do it!!! Believe me you can, I have faith in that.
So beautiful and I love that you put in on your fireplace screen (which is also beautiful by the way). I never would have though of that! Mom and I have been working on some wreaths in our crafting sessions.
How fun to have your Mom working with you. I wish my Mom were closer.
I just wanted to say I love reading your blog. But, for some reason I haven’t been getting it in my. Feed lately.
I wonder why. Have you subscribed to my email list Christy?
