Maybe it’s my current obsession with Pinterest or my recent move to the South, but lately I’ve been inspired to take on some serious do-it-yourself projects.
Although I’m naturally creative and can do anything from crocheting to painting, I’ve always lacked the patience for DIY stuff. Nowadays, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s are my new favorite stores!
My first project took only 30 minutes, and it brightens my spirit every time I get home. Check out this beautiful spring wreath that I made last week (for under $20 btw) and follow these easy steps to create your own…
What You’ll Need
Grapevine Wreath, Silk Flowers, Satin Ribbon, Glue Gun and Glue Sticks: I purchased the wreath for $4.00 and the silk flowers and leaves were all less than $12.00 at my local Michael’s. Now, flowers can be pretty pricey but I opted for gold hydrangeas and baby’s breath, which were on sale for Easter. I’ve had my glue gun for a while but you can purchase one for $2.99 and up.
How to Design Your Wreath
Think of a Design Before Getting Started: Do you want a full floral design or do you want to show more of the grapevine for a rustic look? You can also draw inspiration from other DIYers.
How to Arrange Your Flowers
Use Hot Glue Gun to Set Flowers in Place: Put each stem through wreath and carefully wrap around vines. Apply the hot glue between the stem and vine to hold in place. The glue dries pretty quickly, but I suggest allowing it to dry for 15 minutes. After it’s completely dry, tie the satin ribbon or string to hang.
