Two Wreaths in One Afternoon
Making these wreaths must have been the quickest and easiest craft I have ever done. The grapevine wreaths, faux florals, and ribbon are all from Michael’s.
At first, I thought I would use my glue gun to attach every piece, but no need for that. I used pliers to cut the individual flower stems from the main stem, and I stuck them, piece by piece, into the grapevine wreath. The vines are braided so tightly together that sticking the wire stems between them, keeps them securely in place. Make sure to cut the wire stems as long as possible for this reason.
A Wreath for the Front Door
For this wreath, I chose mainly red with a bit of yellow and pink. It matches my red front door perfectly. That is while the door is still red. But that is a discussion on its own that’s been going on in my head since last spring. I like it red… but I also want it white… or maybe black…
I love the look of my first-ever spring wreath. Isn’t this giving all the spring vibes? I am so here for it!
The porch still lacks fresh flowers and greenery but that will have to wait until the end of May in order to survive our unpredictable weather.
A Wreath To Hang Over the Mantel
For this wreath I chose a white, yellow and green palette. Fresh and springy.
If you prefer a natural colour palette, you would love this spring craft.
I would never have guessed that I would enjoy making wreaths this much. More assembling than making, but still.
Who wouldn’t enjoy crafting with such a cute little helper?
Spring and summer-ready? I would say!
I love all the florals on my mantel. Even if they aren’t fresh.
