Today at STYLEanthropy, let’s make a DIY floral table wreath without using any adhesive or glue. Yes, it’s super easy and simple. I promise anyone can make it. I thought about making one after thinking of ways to decorate a dining table for Spring parties. Flowers are easily the perfect symbols of Spring arrival and so it’s only appropriate to use flowers for table decorations. Besides, if you get tired of your floral wreaths, you can also use this as flower crowns for Festival Season, am I right? Of course, you’ll have to choose a wreath that will fit your head perfectly! Haha. You can just use a simple wooden ring, head band or elastic for your flower crown. But today, we are talking about table decorations!
DIY Floral Table Wreath
What You’ll Need
- Wire wreaths at craft stores – got these at Walmart for less than $2
- Bunches of flowers (wire stems) in different colors – I got $3 bunches and .99 cents bunches too
- Wire cutter or heavy duty scissors
- Begin by separating the flowers by cutting it from it’s main stem. See the photo above for reference. I used the wire cutter to cut the flowers along with its individual stems from the main stem that’s holding everything. If you bought flowers that are already separate from each other, then you get to skip this part. FYI, do not buy just the flower heads. You need the stems to attach the flowers to the wreath.
- Once you’ve separated each flower stem, begin positioning it to the wreath, one flower at a time. Since the stem is made of green coated wire, you can bend it in place the way you want it to.
- Insert the flower stem wire into the wreath, looping or weaving it into the wires of the wreath so that it stays in place. If you look at the photo below, check the yellow flower in the bottom. You can see that I weaved the wire stem at different points of the wreath to secure it in place.
- Once you’ve got your first color in the wreath, proceed with the next color or flower type. Just follow the same instructions as above, then complete with the rest of your flowers. I used three colors in my floral table wreath.
Now you can use your DIY floral table wreath with candles, baskets for Easter, or to decorate platters and cake stands like this below. Now in case you’re wondering why I opted to skip hot glue or some kind of adhesive, let me tell you why. These types of table decorations can be seasonal. So, if I’m tired of the floral table wreath, I can easily disassemble it and use the flowers on a vase for a table decoration instead. I can then use the wreath for something else, say, for Thanksgiving or Christmas, when the season changes. It’s all about practicality and making things multi-purpose, folks!
And like I said, if you get tired of them as a home decor, you can always use them to style your pretty head if you’re going to Coachella, SXSW or any other music festival coming up! 🙂
