Spring has almost sprung! What better way to celebrate a new season than with a beautiful Wispy Sunflower Wreath! I love the unique design and movement of a wispy wreath, which is a perfect place to start if you are a beginner designer.
You will love how the sunflower cascade and greenery bring this design to the next level.
How to Make a Wispy Sunflower Wreath:
- Take your evergreen stem and use your wire cutters to cut into a few smaller pieces. Trim the excess bottom with your wire cutters.
- Follow the flow of your wispy wreath and add some greenery on to top, using your hot glue. Rotate your wreath clockwise and add some greenery every 4-5 inches or so, spaced evenly around. You want your greenery to flow well with the movement of your wreath base. Cover any hot glue with some Spanish moss.
- Next grab your yellow flower bunch and use your wire cutters to trim them down into smaller pieces. Fluff the branches to make them fuller.
- Dip the end into the glue pot and add the yellow flowers in between your greenery, rotating your wreath as you go, until you have done the whole wreath. Cover any hot glue with some Spanish moss.
- Take your sunflower bunch and use your wire cutters to cut into 3 separate stem. Add the first sunflower stem into the top of your wreath using a cable tie to secure it into the base. Trim the excess cable tie with your wire cutters. Use your Spanish moss to cover the cable tie.
- Dip a second sunflower stem into your glue pot and place it under the previous sunflower.
- Now let’s beef up the other side of our wreath. Take a second bush of your evergreen and use your wire cutters to trim into smaller stems. Add some greenery at the top, bottom, and middle of your sunflowers with your hot glue. Place one more piece of greenery to the left of your sunflowers, following the movement of the wispy wreath base.
- Continue adding some more greenery, using your hot glue, onto the front of your wreath to fill in that inner circle of your wreath base.
- Grab a second bush of the small yellow flowers and fluff the branches. Cut your bush into smaller stems. Add your first stem into the top of the wreath with your hot glue. Continue rotating your wreath and adding your yellow flower stems to follow the flow of your wispy wreath base.
- Don’t forget to cover any exposed hot glue with your Spanish moss. Add some more yellow flower stems just above the Sunflower cluster. Go ahead and add one more yellow flower stem in your Sunflower cluster, securing it with your hot glue.
- Grab your last sunflower stem and dip the bottom in your hot glue. Place it at the bottom of your sunflower cluster. Use a cable tie to secure the sunflower stems, helping them cascade downward. Cover with some Spanish moss.
- Take a step back and make any adjustments you need to any flowers. Let’s add some lambs ear into our wreath. Cut your lambs ear bush into 7 or 8 smaller stems. Start by placing some on the top of your sunflowers and work your way down through the sunflower cascade. You can place them in their before you hot glue to see if you like them. Secure the lambs ear with hot glue when you are happy with their placement.
- Add one more yellow filler flower stem in the middle of your Sunflower cascade.
- Turn your wreath around and steal a few twigs with your wire cutters. Add the twigs throughout your sunflower cascade, securing them with hot glue. Make any adjustments you need and enjoy your beautiful wreath!
