Pot Wreath

Ok,  it’s been over a month since I made it, but I thought I should put my May wreath up. If you haven’t seen the wreath on Pinterest yet, prepare yourself for something pretty.

My friends Caroline and Sarah came over for a Pinterest party, and we decided to make these wreaths.  We found them on Pinterst, and used the tutorial here:

The tutorial has all the materials listed and is very easy to follow.

I decided to paint my pots to match the pot towers I put outside (another Pinterest inspired project I’ll be posting). Sarah and Caroline didn’t paint their pots.  I think their wreaths look very sophisticated, while mine looks a bit more on the whimsical side.

If you want to paint your pots, do that first. Tie down the larger pots first.

Then fill in the spaces with the smaller pots. Switch up the direction of the pots, they shouldn’t all face the inside of the wreath.

We cut cubes of floral foam and filled the pots with it after they were all tied down.

Then just hot glue the faux flowers. I used a lot of succulents mixed in with purple flowers and some faux moss. I added the moss last as a filler.

They’re not very difficult, but they are pretty heavy. Make sure your wreath holder is a sturdy one. Also, this may be too big if you have a screen door. Mine barely closes with the screen door. I think I may move this to my side door to be closer to my topsy turvey pots.
