HOW TO MAKE A WAGON WHEEL WREATH
Making a summer wagon wheel wreath is so easy, your only talent is wrapping floral wire around the wheel then twisting it to secure the ends. (You can use hot glue as well but since my wagon wheel is huge and heavy, my florals were also over-sized so wire seemed more secure and used less materials.)
I started with the biggest flower stems first and laid them on the wagon wheel. I placed the biggest stems at each end and met in the middle, only covering half of the wheel.
After the flowers were laid down, I tucked in greenery into the empty spots until it was full looking. I love these hanging seeded eucalyptus leaves, they really complete the look and add length at the same time. Super easy, get creative!
How to Hang a Wagon Wheel Wreath
I used a thick nail to hang the wreath and simply placed it on my wall. If you’re concerned about damaging the wall, use a Command Hook but make sure it can handle the weight. You can also use a screw or tap in an eye hook into the wheel then hang with a screw or nail.

Thanks so much Ashley! 🙂
Every time I see one of these wagon wheels in Hobby Lobby I feel like I should make a Pioneer Day wreath, but I am afraid I would end up with is a countrified wreath that looks like it was made in the 80’s. Your wreath is so pretty, I just might have to take a crack at it after all. Pinning to my wreath board! xo Tauni
Do it, do it! It’s a fun punch of rustic meets floral– you can totally pull it off! 🙂
