Hey guys! I decided it was time to go out with the Easter décor and in with the more neutral Spring décor. I really enjoy creating cute grapevine wreaths for each season/holiday so I always make sure I have a couple on hand at all times! Here are a list of supplies I used for this one.
- Grapevine wreath (Hobby Lobby)
- Wooden “hello” cutout (Hobby Lobby)
- Floral sprigs of your choice (Hobby Lobby)
- Apple Barrel paint-I used the Key West color
- Paint brush
- Ribbon of your choice for bow (optional)
- Raffia (optional)
- Scissors/wire cutters
- Glue gun-here is my affiliate link for the cordless one I use https://amzn.to/2GNDuXZ
Now for the fun part! The first thing I did was paint my “hello” so it could be drying while I assemble the rest of the wreath.
Next it’s time to add your floral sprigs to the grapevine wreath. There is no right or wrong way to do this. I just stick mine directly in the wreath. If need be you can certainly use your glue gun to secure them.
I always like to add a bow to my wreaths but you definitely wouldn’t have to if you didn’t want to! If you have watched any of my videos on my Facebook page you have probably seen me make this bow before. I found my ribbon at the dollar tree but you can use anything you have on hand. I like to use wired burlap as the base of my bow and one or two other types of ribbon. After you have chosen your ribbon you will want to cut your pieces of ribbon to similar lengths. Usually 4-5 inches is ideal depending on the size of bow desired.
I like to throw in some raffia to add a little something extra to my bow so just grab a bunch and put it right in the center of your bow. You will then take a couple extra strands of the raffia to wrap around the center of your bow to tie it off. You will want to flip your bow over and tie the extra strands of raffia as tight as you can to form your bow.
Once you have finished tying your bow you can cut off the excess raffia from the back and then flip your bow over and mess with it until you get it how you like it.
Now you are ready to glue on your “hello” and your bow!
