Looking for a quick and easy sunflower wreath? All you need is a vine wreath, ribbon, and flowers for this easy version that comes together in only minutes!
Have you ever had a decor piece that you just finally HAD IT with?
Well, that’s where
I am have been with this one.
I’ve always loved sunflowers – and still do – but this thing has been sitting in my dining room for a while and every time I look at it, it drives me crazy!
The sunflowers aren’t that old. The vase…wow, that’s a different story.
I’ve had it for years.
Sometimes it’s been empty. Other times I’ve filled it with flowers…I just can’t get happy about it.
Last week I got so tired of looking at it and feeling yucked out by it, that I just took it out of the room altogether.
Even an empty space looks better now.
But since I still love sunflowers, and my front door is shamefully bare, I decided to give those sunny blooms another shot – outside.
And what better way to put them to use that on a wreath, right?
DIY Sunflower Wreath
This wreath was super easy to put together and since I already had the sunflowers and berries, it was pretty inexpensive too. All I bought was the vine wreath and ribbon.
If I had been really smart last fall, I would have whipped up a pile of wreaths right from my own yard.
And I didn’t.
There’s always this year though, right?
When I add a ribbon to a wreath, that’s where I like to start with design. It gives it a nice focal point to arrange all the other elements around.
If you leave the tails long enough when you make the bow, you can just use them to tie it right to the wreath form on the back.
Next, I start arranging the elements along the sides until I find one that I like.
I started with the berries since they take up the most space, then planned to fill in with the flowers.
Finally, I lay the larger elements in the spaces to see how they’ll look.
These sunflowers filled the spaces perfectly.
The thing I love about vine wreaths that other wreath forms don’t have is built-in spaces for pushing in flower stems.
They’re wide enough for plenty of placement options and tight enough to hold it all in – usually without any glue.
So the sunflowers only needed to be trimmed of their long stems, then pushed into the wreath.
First, one centered right above the bow, and two on each side of it below.
Finally, I pushed the last two in on each side of the center flower and this DIY sunflower wreath was done and ready to hang!
I still have that sad-looking metal vase to deal with now.
I think she’s ripe for a total makeover.
