You can make some of the most beautiful bicycle or wagon wheel wreaths for any season. I’m sure you’ve seen images of bicycle or wagon wheel wreaths floating around the web. They are quite pretty and super easy to make.
The first thing you’re going to need to make wagon wheel wreaths is a wheel (of course). You can find wheel wreath frames at Dollar Tree sometimes and I used one in this post, but there are other wheel wreath forms I like to use so let me share a few.
You may also be able to find a used wheel from a local bike shop or thrift store. Maybe there’s even one in the garage on that bicycle that “you’re going to ride someday” and nobody will even know it’s missing. 😉
Bicycle or Wagon Wheel Wreath Supplies
- Dollar Tree Bicycle or Wagon wheel wreath frame- For something beautiful and unique buy an antique wheel!
- Florist wire
- Silk Flowers – I found mine at Dollar Tree but Hobby Lobby also has them
- A wood bead or button (optional for the center)
- A burlap bow (learn how to make a burlap bow here)
How To Make A Bicycle or Wagon Wheel Wreath
We all love easy DIY projects and this wagon wheel wreath definitely falls into this category. I used three white Lilac picks and 1 German Statice pick to create this wreath. Everything was secured with florist wire and it was seriously so easy!
I glued a large split wooden bead to the center but you can use a button or just leave it the way it is.
Cutting the stems off of the picks makes them easier to work with. Arrange the flowers the way you like them and attach them to the wagon wheel wreath form with floral wire.
The touch of purple from the silk German Statice is a nice pop of color but I didn’t want to overdo it. I just added 2 stems on each side. (not the entire pick, just the stems). You can use any flower that you’d like.
Can you believe how easy that is?
