Spring Wreath How-To

Materials:

  • Pussy willow branches
  • Wire cutters
  • Florist’s wire
  • Grapevine wreath base

Step 1: Cut pussy willow branches into 8-10 inch lengths. Save the extra scraps for filling later.

Step 2: Bundle a handful of the branch pieces. Secure them by wrapping floral wire around the bundle.

Step 3: Attach the bundle to the wreath base. Ensure the wire is tightly twisted onto the wreath.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you’ve completely filled the wreath.

Indoor Spring Planters

Painting flower pots is a cheap way to get a rich look. No matter what color you decide, just make sure you use the right materials to keep your pot looking nice.

  • Sand down the pot if necessary (new pots won’t require this step)
  • Seal the pot with a clean acrylic sealer INSIDE and OUT
  • Make sure that your paint option is made for outdoor use, aka water-resistant
  • Seal the pot with a clean acrylic sealer inside and outside
  • Let dry for 24 hours before adding the dirt and plant

We recommend planting succulents since they are low maintenance and tough to kill. Just don’t over-water!
