Quick and Easy Fiesta Wreath Tutorial

Quick and Easy Fiesta Wreath Tutorial

It’s Fiesta time in South Texas! And that means many doors in San Antonio are decorated with big, bold wreaths in vibrant colors. While they are fun and festive, wreaths that you’d find at local boutiques can be pricey – I’ve seen some go for about $125.

Luckily, you can make your own and it’s easier than you think. It takes only a couple of hours to put together from start to finish. The best part is that this version is super budget friendly. I recycled fabric flowers and some ribbon that I used in previous décor projects, and I reused the foam base from last year’s wreath.

This is my third annual Fiesta creation. In 2015, I made a full, floral Fiesta wreath, and last year I designed a fun, cascarones wreath. I can say this one is my favorite so far! Let’s get started.

You Will Need

  • Tablecloth or large towel
  • A glue gun and glue sticks
  • Wire cutters
  • Scissors
  • A foam wreath base
  • Fabric flowers in various sizes
  • Paper flowers in various sizes
  • Ribbon
  • Wreath hook

Here’s How to Do It

Quick and Easy Fiesta Wreath Tutorial

Lay down a tablecloth or large towel under the foam wreath to help catch any foam that flakes off as you add flowers. Begin by marking the center of the wreath at the top and bottom. This will help you center your floral placement.

I started adding flowers on the top left side, starting with one of the biggest, fullest flowers and arranging smaller flowers around it.

Then mirror that design on the lower right hand side to make sure your wreath is balanced. I didn’t want the flowers to go all the way around the wreath, so it was important that each side look nice and full.

I left some spots on the wreath base open to highlight the pretty ribbon. I wrapped a strand of each ribbon around the base once, alternating colors.

Then I hot glued long lengths of ribbon to the underside of the wreath base for a pretty, fluttery effect.

Finally, I wrapped one piece of floral wire around the wreath base and used that to hang it on the wreath hook on the door. As a finishing touch, I popped a little burro piñata in the center. Couldn’t be easier!

Happy Fiesta!
