Breast Cancer Awareness Wreath
Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Have you wondered how to make a breast cancer awareness wreath? I’m a breast cancer survivor and I am sharing how I created a breast cancer awareness wreath.

Breast cancer awareness wreath instructions
I bought 6 bunches of flowers from Dollar Tree. The amount of flowers you’ll need depends on how wide and broad the flowers are.
I pulled the flower heads off the flower stems.
I arranged the flower heads onto the wreath form.
Once I had them in the order and place I wanted them, I hot glued them onto the wreath form.
I created the breast cancer ribbon with some pink burlap ribbon. I cut it to size and I hot glued it into place.
I went back in and hot glued in the remaining flower heads to fill the spaces and cover the wire.
I kept the original hanging tag on it so that I could use that to hang it with.
I hung this beautiful wreath in my office so I see it every day to remind me that I’m a survivor, a fighter, and a strong woman.
Are you ready to make a breast cancer wreath? There is a wide selection of pink colors so you can change up the colors and use anything from hot pink to light pink. You can display this wreath on your front door. This is also a thoughtful present for a special person or family member you care about. You could also open your own Etsy shop and sell this perfect gift ready to go to help others. You can add things like a wooden sign, a breast cancer awareness wreath bow, or a metal sign. You can make a deco mesh wreath with these same wreath forms, and make them in different sizes. You can make a custom wreath for other cancer awareness too. You can use this same concept to create several different wreaths, whether it’s fall wreaths or a wreath for a baby shower. I have made a pink ribbon wreath as well that lights up, and that will be coming soon.

Thank you so much Liberty, for the kind words and the congrats. I appreciate it so much. Long and hard year with 2 hip surgeries and breast cancer.
Wow you have made a lot of wreaths. I love that you made a craft for breast cancer awareness. You always make it sound like everything you have been through is nothing. But it’s a lot. Your video made it look easy. Thanks for being in the hop.

Chas, great way to pull attention to Breast Cancer Awareness.

Standing with you on the fight against cancer!
Thank you so much Rachelle, I appreciate that so much! It’s been a long and hard year with 2 hip surgeries and breast cancer.
What a lovely wreath, Chas, and for such an important cause. I love the different shades of pink. Your positive attitude through everything you’ve been through is so inspiring! It was a pleasure crafting with you, my friend 🙂
Thank you so much Rebecca – you are just so very sweet friend. I’m so glad we’ve gotten to know each other even more this year! Wonderful crafting with you!
First Chas, I want to tell you how sorry I am you went through the ordeal of having breast cancer and hip surgeries. It’s why my foot surgery may be a bummer, but it’s part of aging gracefully and not a big deal in the scheme of things. My mom is 16 year survivor and now a vibrant, healthy 86 years old. I love your wreath and it’s inspirational message. I’ve pinned it to make one for my mom.
Thank you so much for the kind words Debbee. I’m so sorry to hear about your foot and that your mom had to go through the battle too. I’m thrilled that she is a 16 year survivor, give her pink sister hugs for me.
Very nice way to acknowledge Breast Cancer awareness month. Since Susan G. Women’s was founded in Dallas, it’s very special. I’m adding you to my list of friends who are survivors.
Thank you so much Carol! It’s been a long and hard year with 2 hip surgeries and breast cancer. I’m celebrating onto brighter days. Wonderful crafting with you!
You are a strong woman, and yay you, Ms. Survivor!!! Your wreath is a great reminder of that strength. This is so easy with your step by step instructions. I love how you used that ribbon, it was the perfect pink ribbon! It is always fun to see what you are crafting!
Thank you so much Chloe for your kind words and support. I’m so very grateful that we have gotten to know each other more this year and have such a wonderful friend. Hugs
Congratulations on being a survivor! Your wreath is a beautiful reminder! Happy to be crafting with you again. ♥
Thank you so much Mary, I appreciate it. Wonderful crafting with you!
What a trooper you are Chas! An inspiration to all! I love your beautiful wreath and what a great way to get awareness out about Breast Cancer!
Thank you so much Sam, I appreciate that. It’s been a long road with 2 hip surgeries and breast cancer all in the same year, and I’m willing it so only positive things moving forward.
Thank you for sharing at #OverTheMoon. Pinned and shared. Have a lovely week. I hope to see you at next week’s party too! Please stay safe and healthy. Come party with us at Over The Moon! Catapult your content Over The Moon! @marilyn_lesniak @EclecticRedBarn
Thank you so much Marilyn for another wonderful party.
Chas, you are an inspiration. Your wreath is lovely and a beautiful way to bring a focus to breast cancer.
You are so very sweet Lynne, thank you so much for the kind words.
Chas! This is so beautiful for what it stands for as much as how it looks. You never cease to amaze me! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you so much Denise. After a long hard year with 2 hip surgeries and breast cancer, this helps remind me that I’m a fighter.
Such a lovely way to display the awareness of this month, and make people even more aware of breast cancer. I may make this an October tradition at MWA! I didn’t know you are a survivor… I have many friends that have had breast cancer, and almost all have them have survived, thankfully. Thanks for sharing this at TTA!
Thank you so much Julie, and it’s crazy how many women are diagnosed with it. I’m thrilled that you have a tradition to honor all of those who have fought the battle.
