{Spring Grapevine & Moss Wreath}

You know me, once a holiday or season comes to an end this girl likes to give the front door a little makeover.  Sadly we still have not gotten around to painting our front door “front door red” {hey, it’s been kinda cold down here in Georgia, especially on the weekends}.  BUT, I did make a new wreath inspired by Spring {come on, get here already!} using only materials that I already had!

Spring Grapevine & Moss Wreath

To make a similar wreath, you’ll need:

one grapevine wreath

a few floral stems {I gathered these from around the house}

a wooden letter {I used an H for our last name}

Spanish moss

hot glue/glue gun

burlap ribbon

materials

I’ve used this grapevine wreath a few times now.  It might be one of the best purchases I’ve ever made at the craft store.  Anytime I want to reuse it, I simply take the wreath adornments off and have a new canvas.

I really wanted to have our monogram hanging from the center of the wreath, and I’ve been using Spanish moss like crazy in the house lately, so I figured why not take it outdoors too?

Luckily this letter had already been painted green {from this wreath here}, so I just used hot glue to attach the Spanish moss to the front of the letter.

Moss Letter

Yes, there are some gaps, but from the street {and honestly a few feet away} you cannot tell, and in my book, that’s all that matters.  I didn’t want to have to go out and buy more Spanish moss at this point.

Moss Letter H

To assemble the wreath, I hung it on the door, glued the flowers to the bottom, and hung the mossy letter from the center using the burlap ribbon {after using a staple gun to attach the ribbon to the back of the letter}.

    It’s beautiful. Maybe my favorite Spring time wreath yet this year. It’s just a touch of flowers in perfect springy colors. The monogram is a nice touch. I think I even have some moss hanging about…:)
