DIY Easter Wreath kit tutorial instructions

Easter Wreath Webpage

Decorative wreaths don't have to be just for Christmas anymore. Spruce up your home all year round - starting with our Easter themed wreaths.

Once you have the wreath kit ready to go, we would recommend laying all your items out. This helps so you're not looking for bits throughout the process.

We've popped together some simple instructions to help you create your wreath. The instructions are also available to download at the bottom of the page if you would like to print them out.

Our expert florist, Sharon, has also created a video tutorial which you can follow along whilst making your wreath too.

If you haven't picked up your wreath kit yet, check out full range here.

Now let's begin...

1. Cut each variety of foliage, roughly the same size as your hand and place in separate piles.

2. Attach the reel wire by pushing it into the straw and wrap around the wreath a few times.

3. Using a bit of each variety of foliage, gather handfuls together, making the bunches all similar in variety and size.

4. Holding the bunch onto the straw base with the foliage at an angle towards the outside of the frame. Using the attached reel wire, wrap around bottom of the foliage bunch and around the wreath at least 3 times. Leave the reel wire attached to the wreath during the whole process. Collect the same selection of foliage for you next bunch. Moving slightly further around the wreath and slightly angled towards the inside of the frame. Again using the reel wire to attach the second bunch.

5. Keep repeating all the way around the wreath making sure to cover the wire as you go. All bunches should be going in the same direction around the wreath just rotating from outside to inside the frame. Slide the stems of the last bunch under the foliage of the first bunch you attached. Wiggle the wire through the foliage trying not to flatten the foliage as you go.

6. Keep repeating the same process until all your foliage has been attached and the straw frame is completely hidden.

7. Take the wire to the back of the wreath frame, cut the reel off and push the end of the wire into the wreath.

8. Take your bow and position it where you would like, push the stub wire through the frame and flatted against the back.

9. Add a hook/wire to hand (optional).

And you're done!

You may need a parent or guardian to help with some of the cutting and wire elements.

Moving slightly further around the wreath and slightly angled towards the inside of the frame. Again using the reel wire to attach the second bunch.

5. Keep up the good work and repeat all the way round, making sure the wires are covered. Pop all bunches in the same direction, turning the wreath as you go. For the last bunch, slide the stems under the first bunch and wiggle the wire through the foliage.

7. Take the wire to the back of the wreath frame, cut the reel off and push the end of the wire into the wreath.

8. Pop your bow where you would like. Push the stub wire through the frame and flatten against the back.

9. To add your Easter eggs, push the stub wire through the eggs and give it a little twist until it’s tight. Push the wire through the wreath and flatten it against the back.

And you're done!
