Ginger Snap Crafts: spring berry wreath {tutorial}

spring berry wreath {tutorial}

Well, I’m ending this spring break week with a spring tutorial.
I showed you this wreath last week when
I revealed my mini-living room makeover.
I love the fresh pop of color it gives my living room mantel.
It was super easy to make, too.  Yay!

spring wreath


Supplies Needed:
Wire frame
Ribbon
Flowering Garland from Hobby Lobby
hot glue & Elmer’s glue
(& lots of patience! Winking smile)

First I cut my garland apart.  Then I set to work.
Gluing, gluing & gluing around & around the wreath.
I filled in any holes with extra berries until my wreath looked nice & full.
(Watch out with the hot glue gun….I got burned a few times.  Ouch!) Sad smile
I used Elmer’s Glue to glue a few smaller berries to the wreath.
That seemed to work better than using the hot glue gun for the smaller areas.

Once my wreath was all done.  I cut some matching ribbon, looped it around
& then hung it from the mirror on my mantel with a bow.

  5. I love this wreath. I still need to make a spring wreath and I love this one because it can stay up in to the summer, it's not specific to easter time. I would love for you to share this at my link party
