Cockscomb Valentine Wreath

heart wreath

Martha Stewart always has the best ideas! This wreath is actually meant for Valentine’s Day, but I think it would work perfect for a wedding. These heart shaped wreaths are a sure fire way to spice up the entryway of your reception. Hang one on each of the doors of the reception hall and you have a breathtaking focal point that is sure catch your guest’s attention. This design could be altered to fit almost any wedding by simply using a different flower. For example, I think red roses would make this design simply breathtaking and give it a more elegant look for an evening event.

Tools and Materials
Heart-shaped 10-inch polystyrene wreath form (available at florists’ shops)
Utility knife with a saw blade
Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
Several bunches of dried cockscomb (each with about eight stems)
3 yards of satin ribbon
Floral wire

Cockscomb Valentine Wreath How-To
Round off the edges of the wreath form with the utility knife; beveled edges will let flowers flow over the sides. Trim stems off flowers, leaving a 1/4-inch base. Apply glue to bases, and arrange flowers — tops facing up — on form, grouping them by color. Cut a yard of ribbon, fold it in half, and attach it to the back of the wreath with a T-pin to form a loop for hanging. After hanging the wreath from a tack in the wall, tie remaining ribbon into a bow with long tails, and mount the bow on the tack with floral wire. Source
