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*
- Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
- Command Hook (to hang wreath)
* 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.
Prep your workspace.
Gather all your flowers.
Pop the backs off your centerpiece flowers so they are ready to use.
Cut, remove and otherwise prepare the other flowers and greens. Have fun with it. See these Queen Anne’s?
Take a look at the back…
You can pull apart flowers like so and use as little runners of color. Have fun!
Gather a mix of prepared flowers and lay them around the wreath to get an idea of what you’d like.
When you are ready, get that glue gun!
Glue any centerpiece flowers down first.
Go around and around and around and glue flowers down. Back-fill where needed.
All done! Now turn the wreath over.
Thread ribbon into the back side. Make sure and test the length before cutting. Longer is better.
Tie a knot to create two tails, equal in length.
Add a dot of glue above the knot to hold wrong sides together.
Tie a pretty bow and hang from the door. Use an upside-down Command Hook and avoid drilling holes in the door.
Adjust the length as needed at your bow.
The center flowers really ground this.
Hope you like my wreath and I hope you try it out and make one of your own. Get creative and let us know how it turns out. I’ve included pricing so that you can have an idea on how much this could cost you. With ‘50% off 1 item’ and ‘25% off order’ coupons at Micheal’s, my final cost was $23. (I already own the glue gun, ribbon, scissors, hook, etc.)
