How to make a water hose wreath
While this garden hose wreath looks adorable, there are a few things you need to do to prep your garden hose before turning it into a wreath:
- Cut the hose to size. Most garden hoses are too long to turn into a wreath. Start by looking for a short garden hose. But if you can’t find one, simply use a sharp knife or a pair of sharp scissors to cut the garden hose to the size you need.
- Keep the hose in place. Too keep your hose from unraveling after you hang it on your door, you’re going to want to secure the ends in place. One of the best ways to do that is with a zip tie or floral wire. Arrange the hose the way you want it to look, then use a zip tie or floral wire to secure the ends of the hose in place. As you decorate your wreath, use the flowers to cover the tie.
- Use floral foam. To secure your florals and other decorations on top of your garden hose wreath, attach a piece of floral foam to the center of the hose. The foam is perfect for securing decorations to the side if the wreath!
- Don’t forget your hot glue gun. After arranging the hose into a wreath, plug in your hot glue gun. Use the gun to secure all your decorations in place. The glue is great for arranging all your decorative elements and keeping them from falling off the wreath as it hangs on your door.
