Garden Hose Wreath (For Less Than $15!)

This bright and colorful Summer wreath made with a garden hose is the perfect addition to your front door during the Summer season! And you’ll be shocked how easy it is to recreate this garden hose wreath.

Are you guys ready for summer?! I sure am! My front door was in need of some color to go along with my bright and cheerful Hello Sunshine sign I made last week.

When I started thinking about what I wanted to put on the door for summer, I knew that I wanted something colorful, creative and cheerful (I swear I didn’t plan that alliteration!).

When we were wondering about the outdoor section at our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, I spotted a bunch of old garden hoses and VOILA! My summer wreath made with a garden hose was born.

How to make a garden hose wreath with an upcycled garden hose, dollar store flowers, and ribbon.

Are you ready to see this garden hose wreath tutorial??

Supplies needed to make a Spring garden hose wreath laid out on a table: an upcycled garden hose, floral foam block, faux flowers, ribbon, floral wire, and wire cutters

Supplies for garden hose wreath:

Step 1. Attach foam block to garden hose.

The first step in making a Spring garden hose wreath: a woman wraps a block of floral foam up in a green garden hose, and ties it together with floral wire.

The first step to creating this summer wreath is to attach the foam block to the garden hose. The foam block I used was approximately  3.5” x 3” x 2”.  

I coiled the garden hose into a circle shape and then maneuvered the hose around the block so it could lay flat.

Once you have it arranged right, you can wrap and tighten the floral wire around a few times to keep everything in place.

Quick tip: If you’ve got a wild hose and having trouble getting your hose into a wreath shape, you can secure it in a few different spots with zip ties. 

Step 2. Secure the opposite side of the hose with floral wire.

A woman wraps floral wire around the end of the garden hose, securing the hose in a wrapped wreath form.

I added a little bit of floral wire to secure the side opposite of the floral foam block. I’m not positive that this was necessarily required, but I felt better but adding the little extra bit to secure the garden hose wreath.

Step 3. Remove flowers from stems.

A woman uses wire cutters to cut off the stems of a bouquet of faux flowers.

Using wire cutters, you will snip the flowers from the stems. Leave about 3 to 6 inches of stem behind the flower (at various lengths), which you’ll be sticking into the floral foam block.

The flowers you purchase may be more or less full than the ones I used. I ended up needing about 4 full floral stems taken apart. Mine were purchased from Dollar Tree and Michael’s.

Step 4. Add flowers to foam block.

A woman attaches the faux flowers to the floral foam block, wrapped up in the garden hose to create a colorful Spring upcycled garden hose wreath.

This is the fun part, where the garden hose wreath starts coming together and takin’ its shape! Start adding in the flowers into the foam block. Keep them pointed upwards and then fanning out from the foam block.

Bunches of faux flowers fill the foam block attached to the upcycled garden hose wreath.

Continue adding in the flowers to the floral foam block, filling in all of the spaces on the block. Don’t forget about the edges and the top of the foam block.

Step 5. Tie ribbon around the bottom of the foam block.

A woman wraps wide yellow ribbon around the floral foam and bunch of faux flowers, creating the floral feature of this upcycled garden hose wreath.

Once you get all the flowers in the block, you’ll be left with the hideous bottom of the block. I was thinking about covering this with moss.

I purchased the moss, got the hot glue gun all warmed up and everything and then changed my mind!

I am always doing that in the middle of DIYs. I decided to change it up and wrap the yellow ribbon around the garden hose wreath a few times to cover the bottom of the foam block. 

The yellow ribbon I used to wrap around the block was approximately 100 inches long.

Once I covered the block entirely with the yellow ribbon, I added in the blue ribbon for a little extra color. I brought both of the ends of the ribbon up and over a bit of the flowers on each side and then tied a bow.

Two images show how to attach a fake butterfly charm to the garden hose wreath. A piece of blue ribbon is tied around the garden hose, then a butterfly charm is attached to the ribbon.

Step 6. Cover wire tie with ribbon.

Remember that floral wire we added back in Step 2 to give the garden hose wreath a little more durability? I covered the wire tie with a bit of blue ribbon. Then I glued on that adorable little butterfly that fell off one of the flowers!

Step 7. Add a ribbon loop to the top of the summer wreath.

Lastly, I finished off this summer wreath by tying some ribbon to the top of the wreath as a hanger.

  1. What a brilliant idea! So colourful and perfect for the summer season. I think one of these would look great on the privacy fence in my garden!

  2. I love this, I’ve been thinking about how to repurpose an old hose we have. So far I have had one failed attempt to make plant pots with cable ties, which was unsuccessful!! This wreath is vibrant and welcoming:)
