How to Create a Balanced Floral Design
We want our bow to be in line and balanced. We don’t want the loops to be sticking out too far from the floral base we create in this design. And you don’t want it to be sunken in either.
We want it to be that edges of the floral stems to flow in line with the width of the bow. Check the placement of the bow and floral bundles by standing over your project and adjusting the elements as needed.
How to Customize This Blue Sunflower Wreath
Personalize your wreath by adding extra foliage, such as eucalyptus or ivy, to create more texture and depth. You can also experiment with the lengths and colors of the ribbon to match your home’s décor or change the look for different seasons.
What else can you pair with a blue sunflower wreath?
A blue sunflower wreath is a great way to bring a touch of summer into your home decor. To complete the look, you can pair it with other items such as a matching welcome mat or large white lanterns flanking the entryway. If you have large windows near the doorway, add a small table with a vase filled with yellow and blue sunflowers.
With these pieces, you’ll be able to create an inviting atmosphere that will make your home feel warm and inviting.

Step 1: Prepare Your Grapevine Base
- Before starting, make sure your grapevine wreath base is clean and free of any debris. Also, trim any sharp edges.
Step 2: Create Flower Bundles
- First, fluff out the blue sunflower and turquoise spray stems.
- Use wire cutters to trim any excess length from the stems.
- Then, create two bundles by combining one turquoise spray and one blue sunflower stem in each bundle. Use a zip tie to secure them together.
Step 3: Attach the Bundles
- Bend the stems so that the sunflower and turquoise sprays incorporate with each other within their respective bundles.
- With the floral side facing outwards on each bundle, connect the two bundles at the stems and secure them with another zip tie.
Step 4: Creating the Bow
- Take your 1.5-inch burlap neutral ribbon and create a single or multi-ribbon bow.
- Start with a 14" tail, pinch and twist the ribbon, making sure the pretty side is showing. Create three loops on each side of the bow.
- Next, incorporate the 2.5-inch burlap window pane ribbon, creating two loops on each side.
- Finally, using the 1.5-inch turquoise & white stripe ribbon, make a single loop at the center of the bow. Secure the bow with a pipe cleaner.
Step 5: Attach the Bow and Flower Bundles to the Wreath
- Place the blue sunflower and turquoise spray bouquet on the inner left side of the grapevine wreath base.
- Use another pipe cleaner to secure the bundles to the wreath base.
- Position the bow at the center of the bouquet, and use a pipe cleaner to secure it through the grapevine using the attached pipe cleaner.
