Several sunflower lovers have been having fun trying to create a version of the beautiful sunflower wreath found on NicoleDCreations Etsy Shop. To enquire about purchasing one, visit Nicole’s Etsy shop.
If you try your hand at creating a DIY version and would like for me to share it here, let me know in a comment on this post. I will send you an email and you can reply to it with how you created your and a photo, or just a photo if you’d like.
Thanks for all the likes and comments. This has been fun!
Denise’s version of the original sunflower wreath:
I purchased a 16″ pencil wreath from Michaels and zip tied a smaller wreath form in the center. I cut 10″x10″ squares from 2 yards of yellow burlap from Hobby Lobby. Following the Trendy Tree tutorial, I used 2 petals made from the 10″ squares for the bottom (or outer) row. The next row was 1 petal per twist tie on the next ring of the 16″ form. Then I did a third row on the inner form I zip tied to the larger wreath form. I used yellow chenille to tie to the inner form. That row had 7 single petals. Next I cut a round circle from cardboard. I used a 5 yard roll of ribbon burlap to create the center. I folded the burlap in half and started in the center of the cardboard. I would make a loop and staple in place on the card board…looping and stapling from the center of the cardboard going in a circle to the outer edge. I just placed the cardboard in the center from the front and it is staying so far. I was pleased with the outcome!
The idea to use spray paint actually came after I had tried using fabric stiffener and it didn’t give me the effect I thought it would. So I ended up using Engine Spray paint because it is weather proof and the color will not fade. It’s available at any auto parts store and runs about 4.00 a can. I used a 14 inch work wreath like in the original but for my center I ended up creating a grid out of straws and zip ties and then pushed the burlap through. LOL but hey it worked!
