Run for the Roses Derby Wreath

We are just a little over a week away from the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby. That means just over a week away from Mint Juleps, the singing of My Old Kentucky Home, and most importantly, the most exciting 2 minutes in sports!! Don’t forget the Spring dresses, large hats, and trying to figure out how to bet on a Trifecta.  Whether you pick the long shot or the 5:1, your door will place Win with this festive Run for the Roses Derby Wreath

My husband and I love the first Saturday in May. We’ve even hosted a Cinco de Derby party, when the first Saturday in May fell on the 5th, as well as a 3rd birthday party for our youngest daughter that was preppy horse themed last year. We are lucky enough to have friends in town that host a large (adults only!!) Derby Party every year that they aren’t moving houses. And since I cannot show up to a party empty handed I made them this wreath for this year’s party.

And because it is made of faux flowers it will last for years and years to come!

I think that I am going to have to re-order all the materials I used to make this so that I can have one for myself, too!

    Beautiful wreath! We host an annual derby party as well and I would love to make this. What did you use to get the horseshoe shape?

      Hi Ashley, I don’t have a tutorial on this wreath. However, I bought the styrofoam form from The Craft Place and just hot glued fake roses to it! Hope that helps!
