A DIY tutorial to make a turf wreath. Fun spring or summer decor using astro turf to make a hanging wreath.
Artificial turf or astroturf is relatively inexpensive, lasts forever and has a brilliant green color making it perfect for Spring, Summer and St. Patrick’s Day projects. I’ve used turf for many home decor projects in the past. For example this turf mantle cover perfect for Spring:
Or how about a turf table runner for your Easter gathering?
Turf Wreath Decor
So in continuing with the turf theme I created this simple wreath. I love the bit of texture and the bright kelly green color makes the perfect backdrop for faux flowers.
Down below are the step by step instructions to make this wreath. Feel free to get creative with your flowers and accessories. This would be an amazing decoration for a Super Bowl Party!
- 12″ styrofoam wreath form
- serrated knife
- artificial turf (door mat size or larger)
- hot glue gun & hot glue
- silk flowers
- floral wire
Step 1: Using a 12″ styrofoam wreath form and a serrated knife slice the wreath form in half.
Now you can make 2 wreaths for the price of 1 and your wreath will lie flat against the door.
Step 2: Cut out a circle of artificial turf big enough to wrap around the edges of the wreath form.
Step 3: Hot glue the turf to the front and outer edges of the wreath form wrapping the turf around to the back. For the inner circle be sure to clip the turf so it lies flat and doesn’t buckle.
Step 4: Organize the fake flowers in bunches then secure to the wreath using floral wire and hot glue.
I opted to use gingham oilcloth to make the ribbon hanger. Regular wide ribbon will work just fine.
Step 5: For hanger portion cut a long strip and loop it around the wreath. Clip the cut ends together using a binder clip.
Step 6: Then to the bow form 2 loops and hot glue in center. For the bow center fold the ribbon in half to make it narrow then wrap skinny center piece around middle of bow, pinching the bow and using hot glue to hold it in place on the back.
Now you’re ready for Spring and Summer and St. Patrick’s Day too!
Down below you can see how the wreath rests flatter against the door. This makes for less bulk for folks to bang into when they come through the door.
I’m loving the fun, playful feeling of the turf, makes me wish Spring was here already.
