DIY: Floral Wreath for your Dog

DIY Floral Wreath for your dog

We know lots of our couples plan to involve their pup in their day and our DIY contributor, Amanda of Anthomanic, crafted up the sweetest floral wreath for your dog! I mean, these are so cute, right? And pretty easy to make as you’ll learn below!

Floral Wreath Supplies


Supplies:
• OASIS Floral Tape
• Gardening Shears
• Thick wire (I used 18 gauge pieces)
• Bind wire (optional)
• Twenty stems of mixed loose flowers
• Bunch of leafy foliage

Step One: Create the wire loop “base”
• Measure the length of wire needed for the collar, best to make the loop and put it on the dog to check!
• If using short pieces, just bind together and secure with tape
• Wrap the entire wire loop with the floral tape, pulling the tape taught as you wrap it to release the adhesive from the tape (this helps to give the bundles you will add, a little something to grip on to)

Step Two: Create small bunches
Prepare the stems by removing lower leaves. Layer the blooms, don’t bundle them all at the same height. Wrap with floral tape, cutting stems as needed to a very short length (5-6”).

Step Three: Cover the loop base with floral bunches
Attach the bundle of flowers to the wire loop base using florist tape. Continue this pattern, covering the entire loop leaving the ends of the wire loop base exposed to twist together when placing on your pet!

Please Note: The supplies here are enough for both a small and large pet! For the small pet, the only change is to create mini bouquets by using less flowers and smaller foliage sections.

  1. I’ve never seen, nor have I ever heard of a floral arrangement created for a pup. What a great and original idea! Cute models, too.
