Spring Butterfly Wreath

Spring Butterfly Wreath

This craft shows you how to make a springtime wreath using butterfly dress-up wings and flower picks.

What you need

10” Foam Wreath
2 Rolls of Pink Burlap Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
1 Pair of Purple Wings (Dollar Tree)
1 Purple Paper Flowers Floral Bunch (At Home or Michaels)
1 Pink Paper Flowers Floral Bunch (At Home or Michaels)
1 Purple Butterflies Floral Bunch (At Home or Hobby Lobby)
Tools:
Hot Glue
Scissors
Wire Cutters

Instructions

 

Step 1:

 


Wrap the foam wreath with the pink burlap ribbon. Start by hot glueing one end of the ribbon to
the back of the wreath form.  Use a hot glue finger protector when working with hotglue.

Wrap the ribbon around the form, overlapping each wrap in the
middle of the previous wrap. Hot glue the end of this roll of ribbon to the back of the wreath. I cut
off the last bit of the ribbon to make sure it finished on the back of the wreath. Continue
wrapping with the second roll of ribbon until the wreath form is covered. Hot glue the end of the
ribbon to the back of the wreath.

Step 2:

Snip the purple floral bunch into smaller bunches of about four sprigs in each bunch. Space out
the bunches keeping them flowing in the same direction around the wreath. Hot glue the bottom
of the small bunches to the wreath. Next, take each sprig and curve it on to the wreath until just
a few of the flowers stick outwards. Add a dab of hot glue to hold the floral stems in place.
Follow the same instructions for the pink flowers until the wreath is fully covered.

Step 3:


Cut the wings in half and snip off the elastic armbands with a pair of scissors. Flip the wreath
over and hot glue the wings to each side of the back of the wreath.


Step 4:
Snip off 5 butterflies from the floral bunch. Lay them around the wreath to find the best
placement and hot glue the butterflies to the wreath.
