The simplest method of creating a wildflower meadow is to sow seed directly onto the bare soil. It may be necessary to remove the topsoil first since vigorous grasses will compete with the flowers if the soil is too fertile.

Measure out the seed required to cover your meadow area. If the seeds are small, mix them with sand so that you will be able to see clearly where they have been spread on the soil surface.
Divide out the area to be sown into three-foot squares and sow the seeds, spreading half in one direction and the other half in the opposite way.
It only needs to be just below the soil surface for successful germination. Birds may target the seed, so cover the seeded area with a net if necessary.
