If you are into gardening, like me, you will LOVE this easy garden hose wreath to welcome Spring.
Honestly, I have had the materials to make this wreath for several years, but life kept getting in the way. This Spring wreath took me an afternoon to make, which not having made a wreath in several years was pretty quick!
Garden hose (any length)
Zip ties or floral wire
Floral tape (optional)
Hot glue gun
Spring Garden Hose Wreath
To start, adjust your garden hose to the desired size. I purchased a short garden hose, but if you plan to make several of these a large garden cut to length will work perfect!
Cut out your foam block squares or rectangles. I used a sharpie to draw a line for height and scraped away the back portion of the foam for a snug fit. Attach the floral foam with zip ties or floral wire.
For a more country look, I found a roll of burlap jute ribbon (from a previous wreath) and wrapped around foam blocks and garden hose. Not only did it give me the country look I wanted, it helped camouflage the green foam blocks.
Now for the best part, decorating the wreath! Before I pin or hot glue anything, I always layout my design. Nine times out of ten, I will change it.
I used greening picks to attach all my flowers. This is nice if you want to change out flowers during the season.
To make my yellow flower bouquet, cut a portion of the flower stem off and group together. Wrap floral tape around the stems several times and attach with a greening pick.
I used the same technique to make my greenery bushels on each side. These can be stuck into the floral foam with a tiny amount of hot glue, if needed.
Lastly, I added a cute yellow polka dot double bow for an extra bit of color.
