Step 1: Gather the items you will need. We used red, white, and blue carnation picks, wire cutters, and a 12" floral foam wreath base.
Step 2: Clip down your carnations in insert into the foam wreath starting with blue. We made the blue section with 3-4 rows of carnations.
Step 3: Insert the red and white carnations to create stripes, starting with a row of red flowers first.
Step 4: Continue adding your red and white carnation flowers around the foam wreath.
