DIY Summer Fabric Flower and Leaf Wreath Tutorial

We hope that everyone is enjoying the lazy days of summer!

Many of you know that Trish and I are monthly contributors for the amazing Amy over at Positively Splendid! We are just giddy each month to see our crafts on her incredible blog! This is the adorable craft tutorial we did for her this past month and we know you will enjoy it…

Summer Blossom Wreath



Supplies Needed for Summer Blossom Wreath…

1 premade grapevine wreath 
4 different fabrics of choice {use outdoor fabric or canvas if possible}
brown floral stem tape
floral wire stems {2 different sizes}
pinking shears
thread {to match fabrics}
sewing machine


Step 1: Trace leaf shapes onto your fabrics and cut out each one. Each individual leaf will require 2 pieces of fabric {one for front and one for back of leaf }. I used 2 different styles of green fabric for my leaves. One is a lime green solid and the other is a funky, lime green zebra print!

Step 2: Trace the same leaf shape onto your other two fabrics that you will use to make the flower. Remember that each leaf requires a front and a back!

Step 3: Stitch each set of leaves together with a simple zig-zag stitch, using a thread color that blends with your fabric. Allow enough room to go back around each leaf with your pinking shears!

Step 4: Wrap each of your thicker green wire stems with the brown floral tape. Stitch a stem onto the center of each leaf with a zig-zag stitch to catch the stem.

Step 5: Stitch the leaves for the flower together with a zig-zag stitch with matching thread and attach to the thinner green floral stems with a zig-zag stitch to catch the stem. You will not cover these floral stems in the brown floral tape.

Step 6: You will now make your branches with the leaves! Take your individual leaf stems and decide where you would like each one to be on the branch. I used 7 individual leaf stems on each branch. Starting at the top, begin wrapping the stems together with the brown floral tape. Adding in stems as you move down the branch. When you have added all your stems you will have an individual branch for your wreath. I made 2 branches for my wreath. Therefore I had already made 14 individual stems. 


Step 7: Finally you will make your little blossom flower! Simply gather your flower leaves into a bunch. I used 5 patterned leaves and 10 solid leaves. Twist them together with the floral stems. You can adjust how they are overlapping once you have placed it in your wreath! 

Place your branches and little blossom flower in your grapevine wreath and secure with a little bit of the floral stems! I prefer to place mine a little offset to one side, the choice is yours!

I just love the way this turned out, and by using the fabrics, I can easily coordinate pillows for my porch to go with the wreath! This wreath is so versatile, simply pop out the summer colors and replace with your favorite fall ones! 

 We hope you all are having a great summer!
