A little over a month ago my husband handed me the Christmas wreath from off the font door and with the sweetest look that said "it is no longer Christmas." This got me thinking of what I wanted to do for spring, so I purchased a grapevine wreath from Michaels with the intent of making a new spring wreath. Well, I finally made it, and I am happy with the results. I had originally planned on having it done for Easter, but needless to say I only finished it today.
I gathered my tools and decided to use some flower bushes that I already had in my craft room. The peach blossoms are the same as the ones I used in the Recycled Glass Bottle Vase project last month.
Here is how my wreath was made:
- Grapevine Wreath
- Peach Blossom Stem
- Cabbage Rose Bush
- White Rose Bush
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Burlap Strip
- Wire Cutter
1. Hot glue the tips of the twigs and insert the peach blossoms in between and on the ends of the grapevine.
2. Remove greenery from bushes, hot glue the tips of the stems and insert them into wreath.
3. Remove flowers from bushes and place hot glue at the base of the flowers, starting with the smaller white roses and working from the outer sides toward the centre.
4. Cut each cabbage rose stem a few inches from the base, place small amounts of hot glue on the tips of the stems and fill in the centre of the arrangement.
5. Hot glue additional cabbage roses to fill out any holes or use other small filler if desired.
6. Make a bow with the burlap and hot glue it at the top centre of the wreath.
I love my new spring floral wreath. It is so inviting, makes me feel warm inside and puts a smile on my face. It also reminds me that my front door is in need of a makeover, but that is a future post.
