Project

Daisy Welcome Wreath

Introduction

Handfuls of daisies make a wreath that's neither formal nor fussy; it is just as sunny and optimistic as a wedding day should be.

Materials

  • Green floral wire
  • Paddle
  • Marguerite daisies
  • Scissors

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Secure the end of green floral wire on a paddle to a double-wire wreath form, lay a handful of Marguerite daisies (do not trim greenery) down on top of the form, and wrap the wire around the stems and the wreath form several times to secure; do not cut the wire.

  2. Step 2

    Add a second bunch of daisies, overlapping the stems of the first bunch, and secure the new bunch with the floral wire.

  3. Step 3

    Continue adding bunches of daisies until the wreath form is filled; be sure to tuck the last bunch's stems under the first bunch's blooms. Then cut the floral wire, and wrap it around the form to secure.

    This could also be PERFECT for a Baby shower either at the Guest of honors table as the Center piece laying flat w/ a sage, butter yellow or baby blue or pink candle in the middle. Then you could use glass large baby food jars w/ daisies as centerpieces for the rest of the tables. You could even hang the wreathe on the back of the Guest of honors chair w/ some ribbon to match your color scheme. I love daisies!
