Molly's Wreath-DIY Welcome Baby Girl Wreath

In honor of  the birth of Molly, I am making a wreath that we will hang on Rebecca's and Molly's hospital room door-they will take it home with them and add this wreath as an accent to Molly's room!

My sweet daughter Rebecca and her dear husband Josh are going to have a little baby girl in 2 weeks!  Her name will be Molly Emma Wheeler-

DIY Welcome Baby Girl Wreath

Supplies needed:

1. 12 inch by 30.5 inch straw wreath form.
2.1/2 yard champagne tint burlap
3.5/8 inch pink ribbon with baby footprints
4 1 roll of 6 inch pink tulle 
5.1 1/2 inch Pink satin ribbon
6.Florist wire
7.Florist clippers
8.Hot glue gun and glue sticks
9.White mini roses
10.Art Minds Letters
11.Mini chalk board
 A lot of love!!-Which I have to give!

Step 1:  12 inch by 30.5 inch straw wreath form wrapped in 5 inch by 46 inch strips of champagne tint burlap- I secured each strip with hot glue.

Step 2:  After straw wreath is wrapped and secured- wrap with pink ribbon with foot prints.  Hot glue the beginning and the end only. I did this in the event they would like to use the wreath longer than infancy, the ribbon can be removed easily.

Step 3.  Hot glue ArtMinds letters on wreath. (name)

Step 4: Make bow from pink satin ribbon. I use florist wire- bundle and loop ribbon and secure with wire-repeat until you have the desired shape.

Step 5: Attach bow to wreath with florist wire and hot glue mini chalkboard -I am using this chalkboard to record Molly's weight, height, time and day of Birth.  I am also securing a piece of chalk with ribbon to this wreath to write all information with.

Step 6: Make bows out of tulle, hot glue white roses onto tulle-

Step 7: Hot glue bows onto wreath.  Chalk and chalk board are hot glued on-all information can now be recorded.

Step 8: Wreath is now ready!  We just need Molly!
Thankful for the gift of life and the gift of family!

Please share with me your life celebrations!


Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. So cute! Congrats on the upcoming grandbaby! They are so much fun! Love the little footprints on that ribbon and the idea that they can fill in the date, weight, etc.! Nice project!
