It’s that time of year again…you know the one…my mom’s birthday! My mom is always happy when I make her something, so since she’s been hinting at a new wreath for her front door, that’s exactly what she got.
I love how it turned out, so I’m excited to share it with you today!
I wanted to make her something fresh and cheerful, but that didn’t scream Spring, especially since there is still snow threatening our area.
This was so simple to make. First I gathered my supplies:
- Grapevine wreath
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun/hot glue sticks
- Wide wired burlap ribbon
- Stems of your choice (I chose three stems and apples for an accent)
You probably know by now that I prefer one-sided wreaths. That’s my technical term for “all the stuff on one side”. You don’t have to worry about keeping everything balanced and you spend less on floral stems to fill it.
That’s the best reason for us cheap-skates. 🙂
I started by cutting my first stems apart:
Then I added them to my wreath using a little hot glue on the end of each to secure in place.
A little sad to start, no?
I cut my next set of stems apart too:
And added them to my wreath…
Looking good so far…
Then I continued to cut my third set of stems:
I liked that these had some leafiness to them (that’s a word, right? 🙂 ).
I added these and my apples:
A pretty burlap bow attached with floral wire finishes it off perfectly!
So simple, right?
I tried it out on my front door:
I’m thinking I need to make one for me too!
I love the burlap against the freshness of the flowers:
I didn’t tell my mom I was making this, I just hung it on her front door and rang the doorbell. She was so surprised and loved it!
I need to create something pretty for my own door now!
It would be really nice if all I had to do was hint around to somebody that I wanted one hmmm…
You might also like my Summer wreath from last year that I made for less than $10! It would also be perfect for Spring!
