Floral Spring Wreath FridgieDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
This little pink wreath is embellished with light blue ribbon roses, silk ivy leaves and wedding flower stamens. This would make a nice little gift for that special mother. You could crochet this little wreath for use during the Christmas holiday season and embellish it with holly and berries. This would look very pretty on a Christmas tree.

Start with the leaves and the Stamens then roses and group the parts of the bouquet together in a way that is appealing to you and wrap the wire of one of the stamens around the whole bunch of stems to secure them in place.
Wrap the stems all together with floral tape being sure to keep the wraps tight. Start at top and work your way to the bottom at a slight angle. Then work your way back to the top as close to the head of the bouquet as possible. Break off the tape and smooth down.
Tie ribbon around the stem right up against the head and tie into a bow. Put the whole thing through the hole in the wreath till it looks like the wreath in the picture. Glue the stem into place on the back then glue the magnet to the back. You may want to secure the stem and magnet to the back with clean spring type clothes pins to keep them in place while the glue dries. After the glue dries, trim the stems so they are just shorter than the bottom of the wreath.
