Let’s make a gorgeous DIY wood bead wreath. It is the perfect spring wreath. Decorating with wreaths is not just for your front door anymore. However, I hang a homemade wreath on my front door every day and on holidays, but I also use them inside my house to decorate for holidays and every day. Since I enjoy making wreaths, I DIY wreaths for every occasion. I wanted to share this super easy wreath tutorial.
Over the years, I have taught many wreaths making classes, and I hope to share something new to inspire you to try out this unique style of wreath making. I have been working on my daughter’s bedroom makeover, and it needed some whimsical Boho decor; therefore, I decided to make a pretty peony wreath with wood beads.
How to Make a Wreath Step by Step
Gathering my supplies took longer than creating this simple wreath. Therefore, this wreath took under an hour.

Things needed to make a wreath:
The first step when making a wreath is selecting your form, and for this one, I choose flatform; however, you can use other formats.
The next step is to gather your florals, greenery, and ribbon (you can find lots of choices in craft stores.)
Now it’s time to get crafting.
Tip: I made a fun video of my hubby cutting the balls; you can watch it HERE. Please like my Facebook page while you are there, so you don’t miss any of my new videos. If you want to save some money on the balls, you can buy them whole and cut them in half (like I did.)
I began attaching the split balls to the wreath form with hot glue (I used 16 split balls.) Placing them together as close as possible while creating a tight row of split balls leaves a space approximately 1/3 of the wreath form.
Note: you can use an embroidery hoop for the form; however, this form is easier to work use.
This wreath can be used as a front door wreath or inside your home all year, with a bow. You can transform it into a new look. I wanted it to be romantic and whimsical since it is for my daughter’s bedroom; thus, I used both peonies and succulents and the split balls.
Note: if you attach all the floral and greenery with floral wire, you can easily change those elements for an updated look.
Wreath Hanger and Streamers
I added the small pink ball trim as streamers to the bottom of the wreath for a Boho vibe.
This wreath needed a hanger for a bedroom wall; thus, I decided to use a pink velvet ribbon about 12 inches long. It wanted to slide into the space between the split balls; for that reason, I glued the crisscrossed staples to the back of one split ball to hold it in position. I am going to make another split ball wreath with a bow. You can find my post about bow making in this earlier post.

That was a whirlwind of information, but it was super fun too. I hope you found some inspiration to make your wreath. I plan my Christmas wreath ideas using split balls for a different look and maybe one with pom-poms. You can see how I make easy pom poms in this earlier post.
