I actually completed this wreath centerpiece a while ago, and like many things… I totally forgot to write about it! This was a really fun project. I went down to a store here in Utah called Tai Wan Imports. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it’s a wholesale home decor place located in Midvale. I love shopping there! They have a million different little home decor items for dirt cheap! The only catch is that because they are a wholesale store, you must have a business account set up there to buy anything.
Anyways… I made a trip down there to purchase some supplies to make a wreath (I can’t get out of this store without spending at least $100 on all sorts of things). I ended up purchasing a few different silk flowers, some berries, a wreath and a glass vase. (Along with another vase, some Christmas decorations, and a birdcage.) I had some extra ribbon left over from another project that I used for the bow and for the blue ribbon that wraps around the wreath so this wreath cost me about $15 to make, but I love the way it turned out.
I was a little intimidated to make this wreath. I had never made one before, but it was really simple. All I did was wrap the ribbon around the whole wreath and glue the ends in place under where the larger burlap bow is.
Then I started adding the flowers. I bought 3 different types of silk flowers; the large white flowers, the small green flowers and the small white flowers. I positioned them in clumps around the wreath where the ribbon wasn’t already sitting. Then I filled in all the gaps with the green berries I purchased. I attached it all with hot glue and slapped on the pretty burlap ribbon to finish it off.
By the way, see that pretty lace runner in the background? I made that too! I think they look so pretty together.
