Tahitian Wrap Door Wreath
Of course a door wreath made from live flowers can't be created to last more than a few hours. So I selected silk flowers that reminded me of the fresh ones I used to make leis and heis on the islands. I liked the idea of the Tahitian method of wrapping flowers to a base to create a door wreath. Just looking at this beautiful creation brings back memories of my vacation. I cut the silk flowers from their stems to imitate fresh blooms and wrapped them on the wreath base. The super inexpensive base for the wreath is clear hose from the hardware store.
step 6 - Complete the wreath by forming a loop in the ribbon and bringing the long ends through as you did in step 4. Bring the ends around and tie them in a knot around the tube hiding them in the flowers.
step 7 - Hang the wreath from a wide white ribbon.
- All Floral Stems and Greens
