DIY – Coat Hanger Wreath

CoatHangerWreath

You will need: wire coat hanger, floral tape, white spray paint, ribbon, scissors

  1. Shape the bottom part of your coat hanger into a circle. Spray paint it white outdoors or in a very well-ventilated area. Paint one side and let it dry, before flipping over and painting the other side.
  2. After the paint is completely dry you are ready to add the flowers. Make a very small bouquet using a few flowers in varying sizes, then add a couple sprigs of greenery. Trim stems to a similar size, leaving about an inch of stems. Wrap all the stems together with floral tape.
  3. Using floral tape, wrap the bouquet to the hanger. In this example we went with the bottom left of the circle. If you like, you can fill the whole circle or add flowers only to the bottom center with delicate ribbons hanging down for a sweet finishing touch.
  4. Continue making little bouquets and overlap them to cover the wrapped stems of the previous bouquet. Attach each bouquet to the hanger using floral tape. For the last bouquet flip the direction in order to finish off the end of the flower display and cover any wrapped stems.
  5. If you spot gaps, collect a few buds. Push fine wire through the base of your buds, twist the wire, and attach the buds to the hanger.
