How to: Make An Easter Wreath

Make it or fake it?

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas, they’re a great way to get into the spirit of Easter too, so why not have one full of spring flowers? If you make your own using fresh flowers, you’ll need to hang the wreath in a cool place to keep the flowers fresh for as long as possible. Pick flowers that are in bud rather than fully open blooms, as they’ll last longer. Use a wire frame with florist wires and florist tape to attach your fresh flowers – just tape a wire to the stem and then twist the wire into the wreath.


If you’re planning to hang your wreath in a centrally heated room, artificial flowers would work better – and as they’re so realistic, the chances are that your guests won’t spot the difference. Or you can always fake it altogether and opt for a bought wreath.
