How to Make A Baby’s Breath Wreath

Step By Step : Baby's Breath Wreath This afternoon’s project is simple and elegant and easy! You can scale it up or down depending on the size wreath form you buy.  I highly recommend the green foam wreath forms because they retain enough water to keep your wreath fresh and sweet smelling for up to a week. We made a relatively small wreath but you can find foam forms in all sizes at craft stores or online. We love The Cutting Garden for foam forms of all kinds. You also have the option of working with other kinds of filler flowers and longer or shorter lengths of sprigs to create a different look.  You can use longer sprigs create a wispy wreath, or shorter sprigs to create a more dense wreath.  You’ll see the wreath we made is a blend between the two.    These wreaths have so many different applications in a wedding context!  They can be perfect to hanging at your ceremony or reception. You can also create two-sided wreaths to hang freely from tree branches of they could be incorporated into centerpieces by laying them flat.   We hope you have as much fun making these as we did!!  I highly recommend making these with your flower girls since they are such a child friendly project!

2 ) First you will run the foam under a faucet so that it wills with water. Then, starting with the smallest sprigs, line the inner circle of the foam by sliding the stems into the foam.
