If you’ve ever wondered how to make a flower wreath, this is the blog post for you! We’re going to give you all the tools and resources you need to make a gorgeous DIY flower wreath of your own.
Not that long ago, wreath making could be a pretty frustrating experience. Traditional wreath making methods took a lot of time and materials and the whole process could be very cumbersome. Frankly, it wasn’t that much fun and the results could be very hit-or-miss.
That’s when Laurie, an avid crafter and wreath maker, got to thinking about how the whole system could be improved. It was the old “there’s got to be a better way” epiphany. That’s how the UITC™ wreath making system was born! Laurie got to work and came up with the better way wreath makers everywhere were waiting for.
Now, with the Unique in the Creek streamlined wreath making system, anyone at any skill level can make a stunning flower wreath every time using fewer materials and less time than traditional wreath making methods. And that includes how to make a flower wreath, which makes a beautiful addition to your home for summer and all year round.
How to Make a Flower Wreath
It all starts with a UITC™ wreath board. We use the UITC™ Large Wreath Board for all of our signature flower designs, though you can also use the Small Board to create the same design on a smaller scale. (And flowers are just the beginning of what’s possible! But that’s a story for another blog post…)
The UITC™ Large Wreath Board is a round, full board-style DIY Wreath frame that is 100% weatherproof and can withstand all manner of conditions. It’s 16″ in diameter unfinished and your finished flower wreath creation will be approximately 24″- 32″ in diameter depending on what materials you use.
Today we’re talking about the Large Wreath Board, which is terrific for making a flower wreath, but keep in mind that we have a large selection of wreath making boards for all of your seasonal crafting and home decorating needs.

We recommend using cable ties (zipties) with all of our DIY wreath boards to attach your materials. You can use any material you wish as long as you can zip a cable tie around it. This helps you to use far fewer materials so that the wreath making process is much more cost effective and environmentally friendly. (No need to wrap materials around the board, thank goodness!)
In this video Laurie explains how to use the board. Preloading the board with your cable ties makes flower wreath making a cinch.
Once you’ve preloaded the board, the world is your oyster! As you learn how to make a flower wreath, you’ll discover that there are endless possibilities of types of flower, types of petal fold, and all sorts of materials and details that will help make your flower wreath unique.
DIY Flower Wreath: Step by Step
In this blog post we’ll use a Sunflower Wreath as an example, but remember, the possibilities for your flower wreath are as endless as your imagination! This is just one type of flower. Change the colour, materials, petal fold, and other details to make your wreath uniquely your own.
We’ll break down and show the key parts of the wreath making process, but you can also watch the full video replay here –
We’ve already shown you how to preload your UITC™ Wreath Board with cable ties. Once you’ve prepared the pre-loaded board, it’s time to start your petal folds.
You’ll quickly get the hang of making each fold and enjoy the process of adding the petals to the board. Those preloaded cable ties are just so handy and make the process a breeze.
You’re going to love the feeling of adding the finishing touches and seeing your flower come together.
