DIY Cotton Wreath for Easter

Spring is upon us! Get your home ready for Easter by following this simple tutorial and make your own charming cotton wreath.

Materials:

Cotton Picks
Natural Grapevine Wreath
Floral Wire Cutters
Burlap Jute Ribbon
Satin Ribbon
Scissors

Step 1: Cut all of the cotton stems into 3 pieces. The first cut will separate the top 2 cotton bolls and the second cut will be the remaining 3 bolls. Make sure to keep at least an inch of stem on each piece.

Note: We started with six picks of each color: Pink, Blue, Green & Yellow.  You can also make this wreath with natural cotton stems. 

Step 2: Start by tucking the stems of the 3-boll cotton picks under the wrapped vine on the wreath until its secure. We found it best to place five pieces at an equal distance so that it broke the cotton wreath into sections.

Step 3: Continue to build off the first five pieces, mixing the 2 & 3 cotton boll picks, and alternating colors. Work in sections to keep it easier to see the wreaths overall width and to plan how many cotton bolls per section.

Step 4: Add cotton pieces until you get your desired fullness.

Note: We used eleven to twelve pieces per section.

Step 5: With your wreath fully covered, go back to your remaining cuts and break them down to one cotton boll per stem. Fill any empty spaces with these pieces.

Step 6: Cut off a piece of satin ribbon, about 15" in length, and loop the strand around the wreath. Make sure to weave it through the cotton stems so they are not harmed. Knot the top of the ribbon so that it is approximately 5" in length.

Step 7: Cut off a piece of burlap jute ribbon, about 42" in length. Make a bow. We used the classic bow method which consists of folding up the two ends and crossing the left loop over the right loop. Then fold the left loop behind the right loop and pull it through the hole. Pull taut. Trim the tails to an equal length.

Step 8: Take one of the discarded cotton stems and cut through the paper encasement until you can pull out the wire. This piece of wire will be used to attach the bow to your wreath.

Step 9: Take the wire and thread it through the back of the bow. Fold the wire into a U shape. Push the wire down onto the top of the wreath, covering the knot of the satin ribbon. Secure by clamping the wire ends.

Step 10: Fluff out the cotton until you are satisfied with its width and fullness. You may need to move the cotton bolls around the bow until it lays nicely.

Congratulations on creating a beautiful Spring Wreath! The only thing left to do is to hang it on your wall or door for Easter. By using Afloral's artificial cotton picks, this piece will last for years to come!
