DIY Daffodil wreath

I had a whole step-by-step video to show you for this little daffodil wreath, but alas, the footage all became corrupted somehow. Blast! It’s been one of those weeks. SO, I will make up for it in plain ‘ole step by step text directions.


  • mini grapevine wreath (got my 6″ one from Michael’s)
  • crepe paper
  • wire
  • moss
  • glue gun

Step 1: Make your daffodils (step by step instructions here)
Step 2: Start by adding the first daffodil onto the wreath form and wrapping it around or gluing it in.
Step 3: Add the next daffodil close to the next and continue on until you’ve added as many as you want in. I like to vary which direction they face. So if one faces out, the next faces in and so forth.
Step 4: Add the moss around the daffodils and on either side with a glue gun. Make sure to hold it in place as it dries.

Donzo. A cute little spring wreath!

Valentine’s paper flower wreath

Valentine’s Day is creeping up so you know that I’m going to exploit it with some as many crafts as I can muster over the next few weeks. Though I’m all for a holiday that promotes love, I’m a little less into the idea of the mushy and romantic parts and more into showing people that you care. In fact, wouldn’t it be helpful to give the world one big giant Valentine? “Wait…note to self…how to make a giant Valentine to give to the world…”
I decided on a friendly, non-mushy flower, the daffodil (which I showed how to make last week–click here) and turned it into a wreath that if you wanted, could also be used as a headpiece crown. Because, uh, who DOESN’T go around on Valentine’s with a paper flower daffodil crown?
