It is time…time to change out my Winter to Spring wreath.
Isn’t it crazy how expensive wreaths can be to buy already finished?
There are so many new ways to create a budget-friendly wreath floating around out there, but I’m a fan of the traditional flowers-on-grapevine wreaths. Call me unadventurous I guess, but that’s what I like.
Creating this type of wreath can seem harder than it really is. Sometimes I think it’s just knowing what stems to buy.
I’m going to show you what I used and step-by-step how easy it was to create my new summer wreath.
First you’ll need a grapevine wreath. You can buy one for around $3-$5. I actually found mine at the thrift store:
Perty, ain’t she? Not so much. But hey, it was only 75¢!!
After I took all it’s clothes off, I had a perfectly good wreath ready for it’s makeover:
The flowers I chose came from Michaels. They were part of their “Garden Collection”. Luckily they were on sale 50% off. I paid $14 for all the flowers you see here and I ended up not using all of them!
I chose colors that reflected what I have in my garden. I started with these light green sprays:
Using hot glue, I tucked one in this way and then one in the opposite direction:
Then I fanned them out like this:
This gives me a bit of a background to get me started. Next I used these:
This was one spray. I cut all the stems apart from the “grass” stuff:
Then I glued them in place individually, spacing them out evenly:
Looks good already, right?
I did the same with these guys:
And these guys:
Pretty easy, right??
I love it just like this, but I decided to add a bow:
If you are hanging your wreath on glass, these work great! You can add a tiny touch of vegetable oil to the back and it will stay there forever…this has been up since Christmas!
Here you can see where I drew my inspiration for the colors from:
If you’ve seen our front yard makeover that we did last Spring, you can see things have really taken off this year! I can’t wait to share more pictures with you.
I ended up not using $6 worth of the flowers I originally bought, so this wreath including the 75¢ thrift store grapevine wreath, cost me less than $10!!! I already had the bow ribbon. Woo hoo!!
If you’ve been skeered to make a wreath of your own before, now you see how easy it can be!
Have a great day!!
