I wanted to show you how to make a simple, sweet, inexpensive wreath using a wreath form, a tiny bit of ribbon and your glue gun!
First, grab a little bucket and go out to your garden.
Gather up a bunch of the dried hollyhock blossoms from the stalks of hollyhocks. You can just pluck the dried ones off the stalk.
I also cut a few of the blossom tips off where the green seed pods are showing for a little extra ornamentation on my wreath.
Haul your little bucket to your work area (if you can do this outside I'd recommend it) and grab your wreath form, scissors, ribbon and glue gun. Attach your ribbon loop by going around the wreath form and then tie the ribbon into a knot. Secure the loop to the wreath with hot glue. Start securing blossoms around the wreath. I found it more effective to put glue on the form and then a bit extra on the blossom to make it more secure. I also put an extra blossoms randomly on top to hide any bits of the wreath form showing through.
If you want to use the dried blooom tips gather several together into an attractive little bunch and either wire or tie the bunch together with ribbon. Using copious amounts of glue attach the bloom spray to the wreath form and continue to build around it with dried blossoms.
Continue until the wreath form is completely covered!
And....ta da.... simple, sweet, inexpensive...
