How to make a DIY sunflower wreath in under 30 minutes with faux sunflowers and a grapevine wreath form.

I wasn’t going to make a wreath for the summer but my bare front door was calling out for something…anything.

Instead of sticking a few flowers in my go-to hanging basket, I decided to add some sunflowers to a grapevine wreath.

I actually took this idea from my spring tulip wreath, that I made a few months ago, and tweaked it a bit.

Remember that one? It was big and bold and all kinds of pink.

The hubs wasn’t crazy about it but I loved it.

So, in order to do that I used just a few supplies..sunflowers and a grapevine wreath.

That’s it!

What do you need to make a sunflower wreath?

How to make a sunflower wreath

The first step was to use wire cutters to cut most of the stem off each sunflower.

The idea was to leave enough so that I could push them through the grapevine wreath and bend them over (about 6″).

You can use the wire cutters to bend the stems if you need to.

Once the stems were all cut down, I started assembling my wreath.

I placed 4 sunflowers equidistant from each other and then filled in the empty spaces.
