Supplies for Creating Your Own DIY Wreaths
While each tutorial here uses different supplies, there are a few basics that you will see again and again. If you craft regularly, you might find it helpful to keep supplies like glue guns, wreath forms, faux stems and floral wire on hand.
My favorite one-stop shop for wreath supplies is probably Michaels. I like being able to check out the faux florals in person and choose what looks the most realistic. Hobby Lobby also carries a great selection of faux blooms with frequent 50% off sales. If you prefer to shop online, Amazon is a good option.
