Burlap & Floral Grapevine Wreath

Burlap & Floral Grapevine Wreath

I’m back with my second wreath of the season, and so excited to share it with all of you today.

It’s fairly similar to the tulip grapevine wreath I shared with all of you last week, but there’s a reason for that.  I’ve decided that I need to be more consistent with our decor and colors.  Too many times I choose colors for holidays that seem to be appropriate for the “season” yet they aren’t necessarily appropriate for the rest of our decor.  So in keeping with the red pop of color that I’m trying to maintain on our first floor, I made this beauty.

To make your own, you’ll need:

grapevine wreath

red polka dot burlap ribbon

2-3 bunches of red flowers

decorative floral pin

wire cutters

To start, I wrapped the burlap around the wreath and tucked the two ends tightly into the wreath.  No pins or wire required!

After the ribbon was wrapped, I tucked some pretty red floral stems behind either side of each piece of ribbon.  I used my wire cutters to cut the flowers from the bunch.

And I even had some pretty red tulips left over from my tulip & grapevine wreath, so I made a small bouquet, wrapped the stems with the polka dotted burlap ribbon and secured it with a pretty floral pin I had in my craft closet.

I attached the bouquet to the left side of the wreath, and soon had this beauty…

I’m loving both of my red grapevine wreaths this Spring.

Tulip & Grapevine Wreath

Tulip & Grapevine Wreath

One of my most favorite things to make are wreaths.  That’s why I can’t believe it’s been since Christmas that I’ve made one!  I take that back.  I guess I can believe it, because things have been busy around here.

Over the weekend I had a chance to make not one, but two brand new grapevine wreaths, and I’m so excited to share the first one with you all today.

You only need a few things to make a tulip & grapevine wreath:

4-5 bunches of red tulips

grapevine wreath

wire cutters

red polka dot burlap ribbon

The BEST part about using a grapevine wreath?!  You can easily re-use them for each wreath you create.

To make the wreath, I clipped each tulip from the bunch using my wire cutters.  Once a bunch was entirely clipped, I slid the tulips into the grapevine wreath, all going the same direction around the wreath.

And to hang the wreath, I looped some cute red polka dot burlap ribbon around the top of the wreath and hung it over my pantry door.  There is a command hook stuck upside down on the inside of my pantry door {a trick I learned from my friend Jill from Create.Craft.Love}.

I love it!  It adds the perfect pop of color in our kitchen.  Having a wreath hanging inside always makes me happy.

Is it Spring Yet?!

Is it Spring Yet?!

I don’t know about you, buy these cold, dark, dreary winter days are making me ache for Spring!  I need color, I need fresh clean linens and fabrics, and I need them now.  No more snow and ice and cold for this southern girl.  Bring on the first buds of Spring please!

While I’m wishing the winter away, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my most favorite projects involving color to inspire all of us to start putting a little Spring in our decorating steps.

Luckily my husband and I see eye to eye on most decorative decisions in our home.  I’d describe our furniture as modern/rustic.  We stick with neutral colors and browns for most big pieces {couches, end tables, kitchen table, bar stools, beds, etc…}.  So, the more decorative items in our home are where I like to bring in some pops of color.

I’m a huge throw pillow person.  Since learning to sew, I’ve tackled a few envelope style throw pillows for different spots in our home.

I also LOVE to leave our table set and ready for a meal.  Now, this doesn’t always happen since my two year old has a new found love of coloring in his coloring books, but when I can, I’ve got these beautiful place mats and cloth napkins out on display!

And, who doesn’t adore a cute mason jar upcycle?  I think I’ve got mason jars in every room of our house besides the kid’s bedrooms.  For this one, I applied one thin layer of Annie Sloan chalk paint and added some sweet white daisies for an instant pop of color to our kitchen.

There you have it!  Just a few ways that I bring a little color into our home.  What are some of your color popping tricks?!

Chalk Paint & Twine Mason Jar

Raise your hand if you’re ready for Spring?
This girl is FOR SURE!  I’ve got an easy and colorful way to bring Spring into your home NOW {yes, even if it’s still 30 something degrees outside and you can see more snow than grass}.

To make your own chalk paint mason jar, you’ll need the following supplies:

chalk paint
foam brush
mason jar {I used a recycled pizza sauce jar}
twine
hot glue/glue gun
floral stems

First things, first.  Put down some newspaper, get out your foam brush, and paint that mason jar!  Mine only needed one coat {love when that happens}.  There are some spots that are streaky and unpainted, but that’s the look I was going for with this project!

Once my mason jar was dry, I wanted to add some jute twine to the rim to give the project a more finished look.  Using a few dabs of hot glue, I wrapped the rim of the jar a couple of times, cut and arranged my floral stems, and voila!

I now have a brand new, perfect for Spring-time vase that I’ve added to my Spring mantel.  Best part about the entire project?!  I already had everything on hand…those are the best kinds of projects if you ask me!
Have you ever used chalk paint before?  I’d love to see how you used it!
