Making Over a Thrifted Spring Wreath

Update an old or thrifted Wreath for CHEAP!!

The other day I saw someone post that left wreath on a FB yardsale group for just $5. I fell in love with the idea of it….but knew that it looked old and kinda wilted.

So After paying the whole $5 for an old base wreath, I headed straight to the craft store to buy some fantastic spring colored wreath picks. Did you know that a huge portion of time these floral stems and picks are already 40-50% off at most craft stores? I don’t know that I’ve ever gone shopping for them when they haven’t already been on sale, so no coupon was needed!! So I think I paid $8 total for the flowers in the picture below.

I started by cutting each individual flower off of the full stem, and removing any excess greenery that I didn’t want included in the wreath.

Once I had all of the individual picks separated, I laid them out into a circle to see where I wanted to place them all in the wreath.

Next, I pulled back what was already in the wreath to reveal the wreath form and that way I could see the extra space to place my new flowers. There were some spaces that made it super easy to place a stem, and weave it in and out of the form. But others were a little more difficult. So in those harder times, I used the floral wire (use the same color as your form, mine was brown) to hold the stems in place. See how I shoved that yellow stem into the form in the picture above? Just weave it in and out!!

I’m thinking of adding a fun colored word or something across the center. What do you think? Would it add or take away from the wreath?
