Hi Everyone,

I saw this one day and had to have it:

It was $28 but only 12″ in diameter.
Ummmm…nope. Craft time!

Supplies needed to make a wreath:

  • 18″ Grapevine Wreath
  • Main Flowers
  • 2-3 Complimenting Flower Sprays*
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
  • Command Hook (to hang wreath)
  • Scissors.

* Note if you make a larger wreath you will need to buy additional flower sprays. In the picture below I have 4 sprays and an 18″ wreath. I had lots of flowers leftover.
