How to make an easy sunflower wreath using a foam wreath from the Dollar Tree. I LOVE sunflowers for Fall decorations!
I just setup my new office for therapy in my barn, and I’ve been working on decorating the space. I wanted rustic, beautiful, and soothing colors and decoration. Something that fit well in barn. I made some sunflower balls that hang down in front of my window, and I made this wreath for the door. I LOVE how these came out and they look SO NICE!
How to Make a Sunflower Wreath
- Foam Wreath
- Faux Sunflowers
- Optional: Faux Fall Leaves
- Glue gun
- Rustic Bow
Step 1: Start with a foam wreath. I got mine at the Dollar Tree. You can spray paint the foam to match your colors if you want, but I kept the green.
Step 2: I started by adding my sunflowers where I wanted them. I poked the sunflower in the spot that I wanted it, removed it, added a dab of hot glue, then replaced the flower.
Step 3: Repeat with all of the flowers that you want. I used 10 sunflowers.
Step 4: In the front areas that I didn’t add sunflowers, I glued Fall leaves flat. For these ones, they are NOT curved around the foam.
This is what it looked once I had all of the front leaves added…
Step 5: Once I got the front of the wreath how I wanted, I realized that you could see the green foam from the sides. To deal with this, I added more Fall leaves around the foam wreath sides, gluing them flat to hug the wreath form. I added until there was no obvious green showing when the wreath was hanging up.
Step 6: I attached a rustic bow that I had on hand. I liked that it was rustic looking. This wreath is for my barn office so I was looking for something to match that aesthetic.
Step 7: Last, I added a tie to hang it from. This was just a piece a hay bale twine.
I love sunflowers and sunflower crafts. Make sure to check out my sunflower Christmas tree and my hanging sunflower balls!
