The 5 Minute Wreath

Project type: home

5 Minute Wreath

Ever look at your front door and think, "I wish I had time to make a wreath to decorate with."  Well, Oh Everything Handmade has the answer - The 5 Minute Wreath.  The hardest part about this beautiful wreath is waiting for your Afloral.com goodies to arrive!

5 Minute Wreath

The first thing you'll need to do is gather your supplies.  You only need three things.  For this design, Oh Everything Handmade used the 12" Grapevine wreath, the pre-made Nigella & Protea Bouquet, and the striped ribbon in black and cream, but you can use any wreath, pre-made faux flower bouquet, and ribbon you'd like.

Step 1: Cut the wire or wrapping holding the bouquet together with wire cutters and sort the bouquet into pairs of similar stems.

Step 2: Use the large vines wrapped around the wreath to hold the flower stems in place.  Begin sliding the stems under the vine, hiding the ends in the vines. Create a mirrored image by working with one pair of stems at time, inserting one on the left side of the wreath and one on the right.
