Step-by-Step Video Tutorial

How to Make a Summer Wreath with Seed Packets
Step 1. Secure seed packets
Start by hot gluing your seed packets around the wire wreath form. Be sure to glue them slightly overlapped facing upwards in the right direction.
Also, you don’t need too much hot glue as the packets are pretty light and adhere well to the wire. Alternate different color seed packets that are bright and bold.
Play around with the arrangement prior to gluing to ensure you are happy with the placement. Leave a side section of the wire empty for the flip-flops we will be adding next.
You can hold them up to the wreath so you know how much room to leave.
Step 2. Remove the flip-flop backing
Use your scissors to remove the tabs on the back of the flip-flops. Isn’t the little bee theme just darling?

Now you want to pull the strap out through the hole and dispose of it-unless you can think of a project that needs one! 🙂
Replace the thong straps with zip ties to secure the flip-flops onto to the wreath frame.
Step 3. Add the flip flops
Flip the wreath form over and tighten the zip ties to secure the flip flops to the front side of the wreath base.
Step 4. Add greenery
To really make all the gorgeous colors in the seen packets pop, add faux greenery all around the bottom of the wreath.
You can really see what a big difference the greenery makes. It’s like all the colors just come to life!
One of the many reasons I LOVE wreath making is you can just experiment and try different things out to see what works. When it all comes together (like it did here) it’s the best feeling!
Step 5. Make a wreath bow
The finishing touch to this lovely summer wreath is a vibrant messy bow made with all different patterns and sizes of ribbon.
Once you have all the layers of ribbon secure them with a zip tie and trim the excess. Zip ties are something I always have in my craft stash.
They can be used for so many different craft projects. I added a darling little gold bee to the center of the bow. So cute!
Look at all of the dimensions and textures. The bee flip flops are an unexpected touch.
I’m just giddy with how it turned out! The great thing about this craft is that you can use any seed packets you have on hand, or even recycle old ones.
