DIY Cotton Wreath

Cotton wreath

Hey there! I’ve gotten so many compliments on my handmade cotton wreath that I thought I would share a quick how-to. I’d seen these gorgeous cotton wreaths selling for anywhere from $50-$80, and had been wanting one for a long time but could never justify spending that kind of money. Here’s how I made my own (and only spent $20.33!!!).

Here’s what you’ll need:

Cotton stems

I used 6 of them for my 14″ wreath. I bought them at Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off so they only cost me $2.99 each. Floral stems usually go on sale every other week at Hobby Lobby so be patient and wait a few days to save the extra money!

I used a 14″ inch grapevine wreath. I applied my 40% off mobile coupon and got it for $2.39 at Hobby Lobby. I chose one that was a little bit thinner than most, so it would easily be hidden by the cotton stems.

You’ll also need:

Wire cutters
Floral wire
Hot glue & gun
Embellishments (optional)

Start by laying out your stems on top of the wreath, space them out evenly so you don’t have any gaps. Then, one stem at a time, cut them down and work them into the grapevine wreath. Secure each stem with some floral wire to keep it from slipping. If you notice that some areas look too bulky, cut out a few of the cotton blooms and hot glue them in a thinner area to balance everything out.
