This is a quick, easy tutorial for making an artificial Hawaiian flower wreath. If you’re hosting your own luau this summer and need some more decorations, this might be just the thing!

Homemade Hawaiian Wreath Craft

Here is how to make your very own Hawaiian flower wreath! These are great for a Hawaiian-themed birthday party, but they also would be great for a wedding too!

With this Hawaiian flower craft, you might not have everything already at home, so you might need to order online or go to the store beforehand.

Tropical Flower Wreath Supplies:

  • Wreath Ring (at Walmart, it comes in a 3 pack, or try Joann fabrics, you can buy them singly there)
  • Palm Leaves (The ones I used are from Michaels)
  • Pink Hibiscus Flowers (I found mine at Michaels, but this gives you a variety pack!)
  • Scissors
  • Floral Tape (I got this at Dollar Tree)
  • Wire Cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun

How to Make a Hawaiian Flower Wreath

Using the wire cutters, carefully and neatly clip 4 pieces of palm leaves. Leave a couple of inches so you have some to attach on either side of your metal hoop for decoration.

Carefully cut your fake palm leaves.

Next, you’ll want to remove the hibiscus flowers from the stems (they will easily pop off)! If you get the ones mentioned above, you might not even need to do this step!

You should have no problem plucking these flowers.

Then, cut about 6″ long sections out of floral tape that will go around your stem in order to hold it together more securely.

Measure and cut your floral tape.

Start by wrapping one layer tightly around the stem of your palm leaf (the part without any leaf).

Carefully wrap the floral tape around the wire hoop.

Repeat this process with the remaining 3 palm leaves. You’ll want 2 leaves on each side of your wreath.

Finally, apply some hot glue to the bottom of each of the 3 hibiscus flowers and place them in between the palms on the metal hoop.

Remember to allow them to dry fully before hanging your flower wreath on the wall.
