This is an easy DIY red flower wreath that you can make in an hour or less. I am so excited to have a front porch to decorate this year. The door of my new home is painted green. I like green but it isn’t the color I always want my front door to be. A green door means an evergreen wreath is not going to stand out as much. I almost bought a red berry wreath for Christmas, but it really wasn’t what I wanted, so time to make mine own.
I have had this Styrofoam wreath form hanging around the craft room for quite some time, just waiting for the right spark of imagination and the right price of the flowers I wanted to use. This poor wreath had taken a bit of abuse along the way, so a little hot glue fixed the crack and I was ready to get to work. If you don’t have one of these laying around like I did, you can order a rectangular foam wreath for $7.19 on Amazon.
This project was totally inspired by a wreath made by Kim over at Exquisitely Unremarkable. Ever since I saw that wreath, I wanted to make one. The problem was the flowers, I was finding were running anywhere from $8.99 to $12.99 each. When I spotted these hydrangeas at Michael’s on sale I knew I might have found the elusive flowers for this wreath. Instead of $95.88 for these twelve flowers, I got them for $39.00! That was a price I could live with! If you can’t find these flowers on sale at your local Michael’s you can do almost as well buying these red silk hydrangeas for about $45.00 (once again, at Amazon).
Here is my finished wreath, all ready to hang on my door. I used a chenille stem to make a hook on the back and then hung this with a Command hook on my front door.
Here is my wreath on my front door, it really does stand out against the green and I couldn’t be happier with it. Ohio State fans might think this is an “O” for OSU, that was not intentional but being a part time Buckeye means I like that it looks like that.
My wreath is perfect, but I did decide to add some clusters of the same flowers at the top corners of my front door. How do you like my $2.68 Christmas decoration? Click the link to learn about my very cheap and time saving decoration.
I hope you like my wreath and consider making one of these yourself. Since it is red, it could stay up through Valentine’s Day! I am so glad I tackled this easy DIY red flower wreath.
