DIY Spring Watercolor Wreath – Here are the supplies you will need:
DIY Spring Watercolor Wreath – Dip & Dry
Once the bowls are ready dip the ruffled side into the colored water. You only need to touch the filters to the water for a second. The color will start to come up the filter very fast. In an effort to save time, I recommend coloring them in bunches of about 6 filters at a time. Let all of the filters dry before you proceed to the next step.
DIY Spring Watercolor Wreath – Fold, Glue & Scrunch em…
After the filters are dry take two of them and fold them in half. Doing two at a time will help the wreath be more full. After it is folded in half lay it over the foam wreath. Use your hot glue gun or pins secure it in place. Grab two more filters, fold them in half and lay them on the wreath. Continue until the entire wreath is covered.
Once the wreath is covered it will look something like the image below.
Now, it is time to create texture!! Sound fun!!?
Carefully take the individual layers of the filters and pull them down a little bit, sort of like scrunching them. This will help create a wreath that is seamless with great texture!!
After a few minutes of scrunching you will get something that looks likes this!
Since the wreath itself is quite busy I added a little bit of white vintage lace to give it a little bit of extra character but honestly this wreath is great as is!!
