{DIY} Floral wall Wreath

For the longest time, okay only since the Christmas decorations have gone down, a large, salmon colored frame has stayed unoccupied, partially because I had no idea what to put there.
Supplies:
Bundle of flowers
Styrofoam ring
Hot glue gun
Twine or cord
Knife or foam cutter
Craft Scissors
 First, (if you'd like) cut the styrofoam ring in half with a knife or foam cutter. This helps the wreath lay flat to the wall. Not necessary, but I like to do it because it leaves me with another styrofoam ring to use at a later time.
 Second, you will need to tie your twine or cord around one area of the styrofoam ring. This will be how you hang it.
 Ensure that the knots are tied tightly and hot glue the area of the knot to the ring. This will keep the twine from moving around on the foam ring.
 You will need a decent amount of flowers. I chose 2 pink and 2 green peonies, one large white hydrangea, and a bushel of yellow roses.
 You do not need the stems, so you must carefully remove the flowers from them. In most cases, you can slide the flowers off of the stem and the flower will stay intact. If the flower does come apart, they are normally easy to put back together, and a little hot glue will make it stay together.
Lastly, you should arrange the flowers how you would like them on the foam ring, and secure them to the foam with hot glue. You will need to hold the flowers in place for about 30 seconds to ensure that the glue has secured the flower to the foam ring.
I LOVE how mine came out! It fills out the frame perfectly and it is such a great match of colors for our decor.
