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.

Perfect Pumpkin Wreath

Perfect Pumpkin Wreath

I was provided a free wreath form from my friends at FloraCraft to make this wreath.  As always, all opinions are 100% my own.  

I’ve been in a wreath making mood lately.  With the holidays approaching, I’m also getting quite eager for a couple of Christmas wreaths I’ve got brewing in my mind.  For now, I’m excited to share a fun wreath for Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving all rolled into one.

To make your own pumpkin wreath, you’ll need:

1/4 yard orange burlap

Styrofoam wreath form {FloraCraft}

orange jute twine

tan jute twine

dark brown jute wrapped floral wire

green curly floral stem

floral pins

straight pins

hot glue gun/glue sticks

To start, I cut the orange burlap into strips and secured it around the entire wreath form using a couple of floral pins {the ones that are u-shaped}.  I also used the floral pins to attach the curly green “vine” to the top of my pumpkin.

To hide the stem of the green “vine”, I wrapped a section at the top with regular jute twine.

I then began to roll small and larger flat spirals with the orange jute twine.  To do this, I simply wrapped it around and around and put a dot of hot glue every once in a while to secure the shape.

I alternated pinning small and large spirals around the front edge of the wreath.  I also added a couple of brown floral wire curls to the top of the pumpkin as well, to act as part of the stem off the regular jute twine stem.

Soon I had this super cute pumpkin wreath, perfect for Fall!  I’m planning to leave this one up until Thanksgiving {one holiday at a time, right?!}.

What’s on your front door now?  Is it Fall inspired or are you already prepping for the Christmas holidays?

{Spring Grapevine & Moss Wreath}

{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

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}.

Now if this weather would only cooperate and warm up a little!

{Burlap & Heart Valentine Wreath}

{Burlap & Heart Valentine Wreath}

All the Christmas decor has finally been put away in the attic until next December.  Since I cannot bear the thought of a bare front door, of course I got busy soon after the Christmas wreath came down making a new one.  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I broke out the red burlap and created this beauty…

burlap heart valentine wreath

To Make a Burlap & Heart Valentine Wreath, you’ll need:

foam wreath form

2 rolls of red burlap {found at Hobby Lobby}

floral picks

heart decor {actually a candle/table wreath from Target’s $ Spot}

hot glue gun/glue sticks

materials

To start, I wrapped the entire wreath form in the red burlap and secured each end with a floral pin.

Easy peasy.

Once the wreath was wrapped {and the green foam was no longer visible}, I began to pin and bubble the remainder of the burlap roll around the front side of the wreath.  Once you get started, you’ll figure out how you want the bubbles to lay and it will be full in a matter of minutes.

At this point I realized that the heart wreath I purchased at the Target $ Spot wasn’t actually one of those garlands you could wrap around an actual wreath.  Instead it was one of those tabletop wreaths that you would set at the base of a large pillar candle or glass vase.  So, I decided to just snip off the hearts with some wire cutters and hot glue them around the wreath itself.  Hey, for $1, I wasn’t too bothered by my mistake!

And now my front door is just as ready for Valentine’s Day as I am!

{P.S. As soon as the weather is a bit nicer hubby will be helping me get the front door painted from our current blah color to a beautiful red.  Hopefully by the next time I post a new wreath, I’ll also have a pretty red front door to show you as well}!
