DIY Wedding Wreaths You Absolutely Need to Try

1.Garden-Inspired Heart Wreath

The first wedding wreath on our list is one shaped like a heart. It is appropriate for a cute wedding, plus it’s easy to do.

What You Need

  • Floral tape;
  • A foam base in the shape of a heart;
  • Flower food;
  • Floristry wire (two lengths);
  • A knife;
  • A sink with clean water;
  • Garden foliages and flowers;
  • Scissors;
  • Tea towel;
  • Ribbon or lace;
  • Eucalyptus;
  • 2 hydrangea stems;
  • 10 Astrantia stems;
  • 10 ammi stems;
  • 15 spray roses;
  • 15 roses;
  • 10 Love-in-a-mist stems;
  • 15 dahlias;
  • Mini variegated pittosporum;
  • 2 white snow berries stems.

How to Do It

It goes without saying that with all these components, you will need to enjoy what you’re doing. Don’t be scared, the process is not as complicated as it seems. The first thing to do if you want to make your life easier is to create a detailed plan. With all the foliage and flowers, think beforehand where are you going to place each of them.

Next, shape the heart with a blunt knife. Ensure that the edges of the heart are as rounded as you can make them. This will make it all easier. Then, dissolve the flower food in a sink of water. Put the heart in the sink and let it soak water naturally. Cover a length of wire with the floral tape and when you reach the middle, connect the next length and bind them together. Add another layer. Wrap the wire around the top of the heart and then twist the ends. You should have a hoop, useful for hanging the heart. Then, add all the flowers and foliage. Start with the foliage, namely the pittosporum, and push it into the foam heart.

Naturally, you can use whatever type of flowers you want, but make sure they are enough to cover the foam shape. Decorate with lace or ribbon and hang it or place it on the table.

2. Spring and Summer Flower Wreath

Because it has tulips, this is one of the great DIY wedding wreaths you can do in spring and summer. Just like with our first suggestions, you can always replace these wedding flowers with other types if you like them more. Just make sure they fit together and that the colors are pretty.

What You Need

  • Wire cutters;
  • Grapevine wreath;
  • Real or plastic tulip and hydrangea;
  • Floral wire;
  • Hot glue.

How to Do It

Although you can use real tulips and hydrangeas as well, it would be more complicated, so we are going to focus on the option with plastic flowers. First, use the wire cutters to cut the plastic wrappings of the flowers until you reach the wire. Starting from the top of the wreath, braid together the tulip stems and the grapevines. If you’re not up for more complicated things, you can simply stop here.

However, if you intend to use it outside and you live in a windy area, don’t stop here. Secure each bind with floral wire that you add around the stem and branches. Additionally, you can even add some glue. Finally, cut the hydrangeas from the bunch, add glue to its stem and put them straight into the wreath. Cut off any excess wire found on the back.

3. Leafy Wreath

Another one of the cutest DIY wedding wreaths is this suggestion for a leafy one. It relies on plenty of leaves and colorful flowers for contrast. For the best results, try to add fewer flowers than on other similar DIY wedding wreaths, but don’t leave it empty either.

What You Need

  • Chalkboard;
  • Florist stem wrap;
  • Florist wire;
  • Peony Rose (3);
  • Tina Rose (3);
  • Hydrangea Paniculata (2);
  • Laurel Leaf (2);
  • Leaf Ivy Spray (3).

How to Do It

First, you need to cut the buds, peony, laurel and artificial ivy to be 10 cm long. Split the hydrangea head into 3-4 pieces. Wire and stem wrap each of them until you have a 10 cm long stem. Then, remove all the leaves from the peony and cut off the bud from the Tina Rose. This helps them look more streamlined.

Next, bend some gauge wire in half and make a 6 cm loop at the end. Cover the other end with stem wrap. Place an ivy leaf on top of the loop so that it can be hidden from view. Then use stem wrap. Add a piece of laurel, hydrangea, ivy, laurel again, Tina Rose again, some more ivy, laurel, and peony. Use stem wrap on each one of them until you use all the flowers. Shape it all into a circle and put the end wires into the loop. Use more flowers if you want to mask the join. Now you have one of the most delicate DIY wedding wreaths around.

4. Purple Wreath

If you love DIY wedding wreaths, you will certainly love this suggestion as well. It’s more delicate than the other ideas, but this only means you can use several of them at the wedding. You can give them to the bridesmaids to hold them or simply place them on the table. It doesn’t have a strong scent, so it won’t bother people eating at the table, for instance.

What You Need

  • Scissors;
  • Wire cutters;
  • Glue gun;
  • Floral wire;
  • Ribbon;
  • Wire wreath form;
  • Silk, preserved or natural touch flowers;
  • Ivy garland;
  • Baby’s breath.

How to Do It

First, place the ivy garland in front of the wire wreath form. Use floral wires to secure it in place. Place the other ivy garland on the back of the form in the same manner. Cut pieces of baby’s breath and use hot glue to place it on the ivy. Make sure it’s evenly glued. Add the rest of the flowers. If you decide to use fresh ones, use floral wires to make sure they will stay in place. Use the ribbon and double it over, then glue it on the inside of the garland.

5. White Ribbon Wreath

This wedding wreath is perfect for a more elegant look. It is richer and the white ribbon makes it fit in with your event. You can choose a different color for the ribbon, but white will match your dress.

What You Need

  • Green garland;
  • Colorful flowers;
  • Oasis;
  • Floral wire;
  • Wire wreath frame;

How to Do It

This is perhaps one of the easiest DIY wedding wreaths you can do. First, you need to tie the wreath with the floral wire. Cut it to the length you want it to have. Place the 3 pre-soaked oases on the floral wire and make sure they are evenly spaced. Add long stem flowers to the base of the oasis and shorter ones to the top.

Finally, add the ribbon. Choose a bigger ribbon for a more impressive effect.

6. Lavender Wreath

Lavender is one of the DIY wedding wreaths that are timeless and stylish. It fits your event even better if you chose other purple decorations. The calming effect can be appreciated, especially if you’re nervous about the entire thing. However, don’t use too many of it since it attracts bees and butterflies.

What You Need

  • Lavender;
  • Floral wire;
  • Wire cutters;
  • Metal wreath form.

How to Do It

First, cut the wire into 5 pieces, depending on how long you want the wreath to be. Make a bundle of your lavender and then place it on the wreath form. You don’t need to cut the long stems since they will help you mask the wreath form. Moreover, they will make it look fuller and they give away a beautiful smell as well. Use the wire you have cut to secure the lavender in place. Pay attention not to injure yourself in the sharp ends of the wire. Finally, add as many bundles as you can around the wreath form.

7. Pink and Purple Tulip Wreath

Tulip DIY wedding wreaths are great ways of embellishing your wedding décor in a simple, inexpensive manner. Tulips look delicate and a strong color can balance off this look.

What You Need

  • Wreath base;
  • Twigs;
  • Scissors;
  • Hot glue;

How to Do It

Pull off the flower stems and the leaves. Cut the stems and place them between the branches. Play around with the colors and add flowers until the wreath is full. As you go, add leaves to the finished sections. Optionally, you can insert some twigs for more texture. Moreover, you can even add some ribbons or lace if you want to go extra.

Conclusion

The suggestions above for DIY wedding wreaths are easy to do and give a special air to your wedding. They are stylish and can be used in a variety of places: on the tables, doors, hanging from the trees or carried by bridesmaids. You can choose flowers with colors that match the rest of the decorations for a more harmonious result.
