INSIDE: How to use a faux flower stem to make an easy DIY heart wreath.
Growing up, my mother had a house full of artificial flower arrangements in the iconic country blues and yellows. Add in a few chicken motifs and there you have it.
So that could explain my affinity for the fake flower! The healthy benefits of all things fresh and green, you can’t quite set it and forget it like you can with our faux florals.
DIY Faux Flower Stem Heart Wreath Tutorial
I’ve joined with some crafty friends for a monthly DIY-craft challenge. Each month will be a new theme. This month, it’s a crafty free-for-all. Check out all of the ideas below!
– Large flower stem (I used a 29″ rose)
– Single flower bud stem
– Floral wire
diy heart wreath from faux floral stem
Use the single flower bud stem to form into a heart shape. The best floral stems for this project are those with wire.
Once you have the heart shape, secure the ends together with floral wire (see the arrow below).
I cut some of the greenery off the rose flower stem. Then secured two leafy sections to the heart wreath with more floral wire.
Then cut off the large rose and placed that over the bed of greens. I used the excess floral wire (from the leaves) to secure it in place.
