Spring flower Easter wreath
This pretty spring wreath is both quick and easy to make, and is brilliant as a stylish handmade Easter gift. So forget the shop-bought versions and put your craft skills to work.
You will need
Pompom ribbon (Etsy has an ecru version)
Artificial garland (we used forsythia garland from Withycombe Fair)
Wrap a 1m length of pompom ribbon around the willow wreath, securing with floristry wire at each end.
Repeat the process with the forsythia garland, again securing with wire.
Cut small sprigs of gypsophila and insert the stalks evenly around wreath.
Take a length of Easter ribbon and fold it in half to form a loop. Glue it to the back of your wreath to create a hanging loop.
Sugar almond Easter wreath
Our craft team created this stunning design using a pre-made natural wreath from Hobbycraft, adorned with ribbon and sugared almonds - It's so easy to make yourself!
You will need
Sugared almonds in cream and white
Ribbon, about 10cm wide
Start by glueing the sugared almonds in alternating colours around the centre of the wreath. Place them randomly to avoid making the pattern too uniform.
Add almonds to the inner and outer edges until the front is completely covered. Try not to use too much glue to avoid it being visible.
Tie the ribbon in a bow and glue it to the top of your wreath. Now you can hang the wreath or place it on a mantelpiece.
