Grass Wreath Tutorial

Since I will be thinking about putting away the Valentine décor and bringing out the Spring/Easter Décor, I thought I’d share this little tutorial for a Grass Wreath that I created last year.

Grass Wreath Tutorial

I love this wreath and can’t wait to hang it again in my entry way. As always, I only had to buy a few things as I had some supplies already in my very well stocked craft room. Yes, I am a craft supply hoarder…actually I WAS a craft supply hoarder. Ain’t nobody got time for that now.

Materials I bought:
Styrofoam wreath
Lime green “fur” (found in the yarn section)
Colored straight pins

Materials I already had:
Prima paper flowers
Embroidery floss (twine would also be very cute!)
Welcome feet printable banner (You can get this
HERE)

To assemble:

  • Wrap fur around wreath until it is completely covered. You may have to go around twice to fill in gaps
  • Place flowers randomly around wreath and attach with colored straight pins
  • Cut out flags for banner, run them through a sticker maker and attach to floss or twine (you can also use glue).
  • Position banner across wreath and attach to wreath by tying them onto pins behind flowers (I think I might had tied a double not in the floss and then just stuck the pin through the knot).
  • Attach colorful ribbon for hanging.

I’m not very good with instructions…I often just make things up as I go, so if you have any questions, feel free to email me.
