Sunflower season is the end of summer and the beginning of fall to me. The sunflowers in bloom are beautiful and just look amazing. Check out the *Sunflower Picture Frame* I made from our visit to the sunflower fiend. To celebrate sunflower season, I put up my favorite wreath. Can you guess what it is? A sunflower wreath.
This wreath is the first wreath I’ve ever made. It’s super easy and is a great wreath to start making with. I made this long before I decided to have a blog to share my creativity and to inspire others to create, but I had to share it. It’s to pretty not to, plus I hope it inspires you to create to! Honestly wreaths are extremely expensive to buy, but cheap and easy to make.
Let’s Create a Sunflower Wreath
Place your sunflowers where you would like them on the wreath. Cut off the stem and hot glue them to the wreath. Then add berries by the sunflowers.
For the wooden letter, make sure it’s a lightweight letter. I found this letter at the craft store already painted white (but I see it needs to be touched up). Hot glue the letter to the wreath. I learned the hard way on a wreath for my sister and the heavy letter would not stay so please learn from my mistake.
At the Dollar Tree I found this pretty sunflower ribbon and made the bow. I watched a lot of YouTube videos to figure out bow making. The bow makers make it look so easy, but I find it extremely challenging. This is the one and only bow I have had success with. Get to the Dollar Tree early in the fall or late summer because the pretty ribbon goes fast.
Your beautiful sunflower wreath is ready to decorate your door. Do you like to decorate with sunflowers?
