Do you ever have those days where you need to be creative or you just might burst?! I know I do! This past weekend was one of those days. The sun was shining, our garden was stocked with fresh flowers, and I was bit by the bug!
I’d recently seen several people posting on how to DIY a spring wreath. My favorite style was the grapevine wreath. My girl, Emily’s post at Living My Lovely Life, totally inspired me! Not only did she make it seem super easy but her wreath is gorgeous!
I got all my supplies from Hobby Lobby but you can get yours at Micheal’s or AC Moore as well. You will need the following:
- Grapevine wreath – I chose one oval and one round 10”
- Florals and Greenery – this is totally up to you and how full you want your wreath as to how much you get.
- Wire cutters – I cannot emphasize how important these are! I was using old scissors for some of my earlier projects, that ended up breaking, and what a difference the wire cutters made!
I laid out my supplies and grouped my wreaths with the flowers I chose. To really satisfy my creative urges, I decided to make one wreath for myself and one for my mom. I like the asymmetrical look and chose to focus my flowers on the left side of the wreath and going up.
After figuring out how I wanted them grouped I started cutting the flower stems off to make them easier to work with. From there, it was as easy as weaving the stems into the grapevine wreath and making sure they were secure. You may have to weave them between a couple layers to get them to hold properly.
Finished Spring Wreath:
Once you have all the flowers positioned how you want, flip the wreath over and cut the excess stems off. This will prevent the stems from pushing up against your door/wall and knocking the flowers out. Ta-Da! You are done! How easy was that?! I honestly can’t decide which wreath I like better. What do you guys think?
If you try this out or another wreath DIY, I would love to see your finished products! Feel free to share in the comments below.
