Cotton Bloom Twig Wreath

This DIY Cotton Bloom Twig Wreath is one of the easiest crafts ever and most beautiful.

This summer flew by so quick. My kiddos are back in school and the rain has begun which means fall isn’t too far away. I am looking forward to my caramel apple candles, apple picking and cobblers that I make in the month of September. 

Another thing that changes in my home is wanting cozy things out like plush blankets, pillows and wreaths. While this wreath still has soft colors the cotton blooms give it a cozy feel. Plus it is so easy to put together.

Follow along as I walk you through how I made the DIY Cotton Bloom Twig Wreath.

How To Make your Cotton Bloom Twig Wreath

Step 1 – Spray

Start by spraying both the front and back of the twig wreaths the color of your choice. 

I chose Krylon Aqua and Seaside Green in Matte finish.


Step 2 – Put them Together

Once dry layer the smaller wreath on top of the larger wreath. You can tie them in place with some fishing line that is invisible once hung.

Step 3 – Cottonwood

Untwist the cottonwood blooms from the stem and then reattach them to your twig wreaths by twisting the wire onto the branches.


Step 4 – Hang it

I used the loops from the price tag to hang my wreath on one of my barn doors.


It adds a little pop of color to the dark walnut colored door and softens up the lines of the door.


Don’t be afraid to use light colors even in fall or winter decorating. 

Adding some textured cotton blooms makes it cozy and perfect for fall or winter.

What does cotton bloom?

Cotton plants bloom, producing flowers. The flowers of the cotton plant are where the cotton fibers eventually develop. These flowers contain both male and female reproductive structures, allowing for pollination and the formation of cotton bolls, which contain the cotton fibers and seeds.

How long do cotton blooms last?

Cotton blooms, or cotton flowers, are relatively short-lived in terms of their individual lifespan. Each cotton flower typically lasts for just a few days to a week, although the exact duration can vary depending on factors such as weather conditions and the specific cotton plant variety.

The cotton plant produces a series of flowers over time, and these flowers may not all bloom simultaneously. The flowering period for a cotton plant can last several weeks, during which new flowers continually open while older ones wither and drop off.

Successful pollination occurs during the short window when the flowers are open. Once a flower is pollinated and fertilized, it begins to develop into a cotton boll, which is the protective structure that encases the developing cotton fibers and seeds.

The cotton bolls themselves take several weeks to months to fully mature, depending on environmental conditions. Once mature, the bolls split open, revealing the cotton fibers inside, and this is when they are typically harvested. So, while individual cotton blooms are short-lived, the overall flowering and development process for cotton can span a more extended period.
