Spring Hoop Wreath

No fussing over symmetry or bending of boughs—this minimalist wreath is fashioned from a metal ring, fresh flowers, and floral wire.

Introduction

Because a solid metal hoop is used as the wreath's base, it will withstand the outdoor weather—perfect for a garden party. We recommend using hardy floral varieties that come with long-lasting freshness such as the ones pictured here (fragrant jasmine, goldenrods, and blue thistles).
