I’ve been wanting to try this project for a while, and since we’re currently social distancing, I decided to give it a whirl. Wood Bead Wreaths are super trendy right now, and I’ve been looking to fill decorative space on our walls.
This easy-to-make DIY Wood Bead Spring Wreath turned out to be a fun way to add some Spring flare our new home! Full tutorial below!
*This may need to be eliminated in time, but during this era of Coronavirus and social distancing/lockdown, I want to provide the best way to accomplish this project while staying safe. I ordered all of the supplies online at Michaels.com. and as of 3/22 (I’m not certain how long it will last) they’re offering curbside pick-up, where they bring your order out to your vehicle. You don’t have to step inside the store! In addition, Michael’s is offering awesome sales on just about everything. All of the items I purchased were 30% off! Stay well, friends.*
You will need:
- 12in. wood wreath frame
- Six 2in. wood balls
- Faux flower bundle (use ours or find one to match your design style)
- Glue gun
- Scissors or pliers
- Hot glue wood balls to wreath ring. Keep them close together.
- Optional: An added step I took to make adhesion a little easier, was to sand down a small spot on the wood ball to apply the hot glue. Pictured below to the right!
- Cut flower bouquet with scissors or pliers
- Use hot glue to adhere leaves and branches
- Apply the bigger flowers with hot glue and let dry
- Use command strips to hang on door or wall
DIY Wood Bead Spring Wreath!
The final product is simple and beautiful. Another option to this DIY Wood Bead Spring Wreath is to use floral wire instead of hot glue. This way, the floral arrangement could be swapped out seasonally. I picture leaves and sunflowers for fall, or Holly for the holiday season. I may have to make a few more!
Additionally, if you don’t have the equipment to sand the wood balls, split wood balls are available on Amazon and most craft stores.
