Rosebud Wreath

Martha Stewart Living Television

A wreath consisting of tiny fabric rosebuds makes a charming accent at a wedding reception. Packed away after the wedding, this memento can be passed from generation to generation, and from bride to bride.

Tools and Materials

  • Styrofoam wreath form (Martha uses an 8-inch form)
  • Seam binding or ribbon
  • Floral pins or double-sided tape
  • Wire cutter
  • 5 bunches of fabric rosebuds
  • Awl
  • Ribbon for finishing

Rosebud Wreath How-To
1. Wrap the Styrofoam wreath form with seam binding or ribbon. Secure the final wrap using floral pins or double-sided tape.

2. Use a wire cutter to cut the wire stems to about 1/2 inch.

3. Poke the flowers into the wreath form in a random pattern, keeping them close together.

4. If your wire is not strong enough to pierce the seam binding, use an awl to start a hole, then insert the wire stem.

5. Finish with a beautiful ribbon for hanging.

    I agree. It sounds beautiful, I just wish I could see it better!

    It would be helpful if the photos of these projects were big enough to get a good idea of what the item looks like.
