Beaded Mother’s Day Wreath

Download Activity Guide
Follow the steps below to create a beautiful beaded wreath this Mother’s Day!
  • Step 1Take 2 pieces of rainbow florist wire and twist together. Create a loop at one end as shown.
  • Step 2Thread beads onto the wire until there is only a small amount of wire sticking out the end. Bend the wire into a circle and use that small piece of wire at the end to twist onto the looped end, holding the circle in place.
  • Step 3Use the watercolour discs to paint a few of the shola gardenia in pretty colours. We are going to use 5 gardenias for our wreath and have chosen to paint 3 and keep 2 natural. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Cut 5 short pieces of the rainbow florist wire, approximately 10cm in length. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Tightly wrap one end around the ‘stem’ of the shola gardenia until each one is firmly attached to a piece of wire.
  • Step 5Position the shola gardenia in place and wrap the wire tightly around the beaded wreath to hold in place.
  • Step 6Cut a few leaf shapes from the green cardboard. Crease down the centre line of the leaf for a more 3D look. Attach each of the leaf shapes to short pieces of wire as you did with the shola gardenia. Position around the wreath and wrap tightly around to secure in place.
  • Step 7Take a piece of ribbon and loop around at the top of the wreath. Tie a knot at the top to create a loop for hanging.
  • Step 8Your beaded wreath is now ready for Mum to hang!
