My husband said this is his favorite wreath from all the wreaths I have ever made. And I have made a LOT of wreaths in our 12 years of marriage, but apparently this one takes the cake. Which is especially awesome because this Rainbow Wreath only took me 5 minutes to assemble! Sometimes the easiest projects turn out to be the best. I originally made this Rainbow Wreath for St Paddy’s day, but I think you could keep it up all year because it is not tied too closely to any one holiday. Plus, it goes with any color scheme!

Using the wire nippers, snip off the majority of the stem, leave approximately 3″-4″. The stems have a sturdy wire coated by the plastic stem, you may need to move the bottom of the stem around to help it come apart.
After you have cut all your flowers, simply tuck them into your wreath, between the grapevine branches. No need for glue or wire, the tension of the grapevine holds the stem in place.
I set my flowers in place and kept them evenly spaced by envisioning my wreath as a clock face. I started at 12:00 for the red, then placing the dark green at 6:00. Next came the 3:00 yellow, 9:00 blue… and then I filled in the holes with my other flowers until the flowers were all in place. You could also imagine it as a compass, with the red at North, dark green at South, ect. By placing your flowers in that pattern you will help ensure that your flowers are somewhat evenly spaced. And it still takes only moments!
Do you keep up one wreath year round, or do you do a new wreath for every holiday?
