Spring is in the air! When I saw these new wreath forms from Smoothfoam, I was so excited by the possibilities. I have always wanted to make a pearl wreath. They look elegant, are beautiful any time of year, and are great DIY wedding wreaths, or décor for Easter and Mother’s Day.
Most other foam wreath forms are too thick and heavy to start with – so the added weight from the pearls makes for an extra heavy wreath to hang. Smoothfoam wreath forms are lightweight, but very dense and strong. The narrow width of this form allows you to really add lots of decorations without compromising the wreath shape. I’m using pearls, mini lightbulbs, and other thicker embellishments to make fun wreaths for every room in my house.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this project:
12″ Smoothfoam wreath form
100+ assorted pearl beads
Hot glue gun (low-temp)
Ivory felt sheet
Ivory satin ribbon
Watch the video above to see how I made this wreath.
Wrap the wreath form with satin ribbon to cover. This Smoothfoam wreath form has measurements printed it on it to help with positioning your design. Secure the ribbon in place with hot glue. Add a loop of ribbon to the back of the wreath to create a hanger.
Mix the pearls up in a bowl or on a plate. Randomly glue the pearls to the wreath form, varying the size and color of the pearls. If you run out of pearls, you can cover the gap with handmade felt flowers.
To make the felt flowers, cut 3 circles from the sheet of felt. Cut each circle into a spiral. Roll the spiral up from the end, into a rose type flowers. Secure in place on the wreath with hot glue. Hang and enjoy!
