WREATH OF THE MONTH {APRIL}

Hey,

its the time of the month again, where Berit from Marmelade Kisses and I are showing you our wreaths of the month. It was in March, when we started out our challenge – for all of you to join & enjoy – #wreathofthemonth

Every last day of the month we will show you the wreaths we made and a few days later we will announce 4 favorites and one winner!

But before we will announce the winners, its time for a little tutorial – as I got asked many times how to make a wreath.
This time I decided on a very easy one: all you need is a wreath out of foam rubber, pins & flowers of your choice.

My philosophy stays the same, month after month: I do love to use seasonal plants or the things that I already have at home. I used cherry & apple blossoms, a dark leaf that just started to spring outside of our house and salmon colored rose petals that I have at home to make a potpourri.

I love using foam wreaths {as you can see, this one was already used quite a few times} because they are so easy to work with, and you can water the foam to keep the flowers fresh!

To make a foundation, I covered the foam with rose petals using pins:

After I was finished with the rose petals I started to adjust the bigger blossoms to the wreath – no needles were needed for this because the flowers had stronger stems and I could simply push it into the foam.

Little by little the wreath started to take form…cherry blossom wreath

By adding a few darker leaves the wreath got a little more dramatic & the contrast shows the variety of spring very well. Don’t you just love how the colors correspond?

I can’t wait to see more of your works – remember – you can use any material possible! Maybe I’ll surprise you with something other than flowers next month…
Like we already mentioned, today we will show our wreaths of the month, on Instagram you can find it very easy under #wreathofthemonth. If you don’t want to share on IG, you can easily let me a link to your blogpost under this post.
Enjoy and wreath yourself away!

    • Liebe Kathleen,
      vielen Dank für die tolle Unterstützung! Ich kenne das aber auch, man bewegst sich meist auf den gewohnten Internetseiten und obwohl alles andere nur einen Klick weg ist, bleibt man seinen Gewohnheiten treu 😉 Hab einen schönen Sonntag! A.
