Horse Head Wreaths DIY
Now I can get into the extra fun part! I am always up for some arts and crafts, especially when the end result is something I get to decorate my home with. Let’s jump into it.
Materials you’ll need:
- Horse head-shaped wreath frame (available at craft stores or online)
- Artificial flowers and greenery of your choice (silk or foam flowers work well)
- Floral wire or zip ties
- Wire cutters
- Ribbon or twine (for hanging)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
How to Make Horse Head Wreaths Step By Step
Once you get everything you need, lay it out all on your crafting table or space. Make sure everything is ready to be used and easy to grab. Then, put on some music or your favorite podcast and get started!
Step 1: Prep the Frame
Step one starts off easy; prep the horse head frame. I like my wreaths to be green and fresh looking. So if your horse head frame is not pre-covered in foliage or moss, you can wrap it with artificial greenery, this is not only for looking good but it’s practical too. It makes it a better surface for attaching the flowers and decorations!
Use floral wire or zip ties to secure the greenery to the frame. Cover the entire frame or leave some areas open, depending on your design preference.
Step 2: Prep Your Flowers
Next up, you are going to prepare your artificial flowers. To start, trim the stems of the artificial flowers using wire cutters to make them easier to work with. Leave about 2-3 inches of stem to attach them to the wreath frame.
I have tried and failed many times to use shorter stems, so take it from me.
Step 3: Arrange Your Flowers
Now you are going to want to arrange the flowers. Start arranging the flowers and greenery on the horse head frame to create the desired design. You can opt for a more natural look with a mix of flowers and greenery, or you can go for a more colorful and vibrant design with various flower types.
You have all the creative freedom here, so make sure that this is something that matches your vibe.
Step 4: Attach The Flowers
This step is where the action happens. You will be attaching the flowers! Using floral wire or hot glue, secure the artificial flowers and greenery to the horse head frame. If you’re using a hot glue gun, be cautious not to burn yourself and work in small sections to prevent the glue from drying too quickly.
At this point, with how often I make different wreaths my fingertips are tougher than metal!
Step 5: Fill In The Gaps
This is an important step. Once you’ve attached the main flowers, check for any gaps in the arrangement. Fill these gaps with smaller flowers or additional greenery to create a fuller and more cohesive look. This really pays off in the end when your wreath looks like a professional did it and not a dollar-store crafter!
Step 6: Let It Dry
Listen to me, for the love of all that is good…you have to let it dry. Allow the wreath to dry completely before handling it or hanging it up. This will ensure that the flowers are securely attached and that you won’t wind up like me: A person with their new wreath in SHAMBLES.
Step 7: Attach a Loop
If you want to hang it(which I am sure you do), then you need to flip the wreath over and attach a loop of ribbon or twine to the backside of the horse head frame. This loop will be used to hang the wreath, so make sure it’s securely attached.
I use a similar technique with my mesh wreath ideas.
Step 8: Hang It Up and Be Proud
Hang and display Find a suitable place to hang your horse head wreath and display it with pride. It could be on your front door, a wall, or anywhere you want to add an equestrian touch to your decor. When it’s all hung, take a step back and be proud of all that you accomplished!
