For this wreath they didn’t have my normal woven wreath form but this wire heart form. I have not had luck using the hard Styrofoam kind so I was a bit nervous about how this was going to turn out.
With some helpful tips below you can make this heart berry wreath too!
Supplies for Heart Berry Wreath:
- Heart Wreath Form
- 4 white berry floral picks
- 4 red berry floral picks
- Hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
Total I needed 7 floral sprigs however I wanted the distribution equal between red and white so I picked up 8 and have a few bunches of each color left over. If you aren’t too particular you can just go with 7 and choose your favorite for that extra pick!
So when using this open frame like this, you can’t just glue the stem and shove it in, like you can with the woven wreath forms. what I found was to place the bunch on the wreath, take note of where the bunch touches the wire frame, glue there and replace. Then after you can flip the wreath form over and add extra glue the spots that do touch. To reinforce.
Also start at the top peak and work outward to the bottom point.
Then come back up to the top and go the opposite side. You can see above that my berry bunches point outward. So stems at the top point and berries pointing outward and continue to the bottom.
