How-To: DIY Fiesta Wreath

How-To: DIY Fiesta Wreath

What’s not to love about a Fiesta wreath? The beautiful bold colors, the big flowers, and the pretty ribbon details give any door a burst of festivity. They are definitely fun, but they can also be expensive. You’ll often see them go for anywhere between $75 and $125, and up. This one is just as fun, but costs about half of a high-wreath. For all the materials, including a new glue gun and glue sticks, this entire wreath cost approximately $60 and took about 3 hours to create.

You can also try your hand at a cascarones wreath that’s equally easy and even less expensive to make.

You Will Need
How-To: DIY Fiesta Wreath Materials You Will Need
  • Tablecloth or large towel
  • A glue gun and glue sticks
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Scissors
  • A foam wreath base
  • Fabric flowers in various sizes
  • Paper flowers in various sizes
  • Multi-colored tissue paper
  • Ribbon
  • Wreath hook

 

Here’s How to Do It

Lay down a tablecloth or large towel over your crafting area. The foam wreath base can flake, leaving tiny pieces of foam all over your floor or table. Lay out all of your materials. Begin placing your flowers on the wreath, and decide on your general arrangement.

How-To: DIY Fiesta Wreath

Start with the larger flowers first and then fill in any holes with smaller flowers. If you need more flowers, make your own tissue paper flowers with the multi-colored tissue paper to supplement. I had to make two large flowers and one small one.

How-To: DIY Fiesta Wreath Push Flowers into Foam Wreath

Once you are happy with the general arrangement, start piercing the flowers through the foam wreath. If you have extra stem or wire in the back, bend it as flat as possible and trim the excess with wire cutters. I don’t mind if the back is messy, you can’t see it. Fluff the front flowers to cover as much of the foam as possible.

Flip the wreath over and glue your ribbon to the back of foam base. Layer the ribbon for a fuller look.
