Today is a very special Pinterest-inspired episode of Living Dayton and I will be on the show sharing a segment revolving around one of my very favorite crafts, wreath making.
I came across this pin and used it as inspiration for creating a super simple and rustic wreath that can be displayed just about any time of the year.
I kept the budget low by using a small wreath, which in return required less foliage for decorating. I am not sure how familiar you may be with craft stores, but quality fake foliage can be very expensive. In my opinion though, the extra cost is worth it every single time.
If you want a wreath that looks classy and chic enough to hang in your home, then I suggest splurging and getting more bang-for-your-buck by utilizing every part of the stem including the flowers and the leaves. Also, most craft stores have circulating specials; so if possible, try and wait to buy until the foliage, wreaths and ribbon goes on sale.
What you need:
- Wire Cutters
- Craft Wire
- Grapevine Wreath
- 3 large floral stems (I used hydrangeas)
- Optional: 3 inch width wire ribbon for bow making, or a pre-made bow of your choosing
- Lay wreath flat and use wire cutters to trim the stems. I like to cut wire stems a few inches from the leaves or flowers so I can weave the stem into the wreath.
- Arrange as you would like. I think three flowers on the bottom corner looks great with or without a bow tied to the opposite upper corner.
- Weave the wired leaf and flower stems through the grapevine to secure, and use craft wire for extra support where needed. Tie bow onto wreath with craft wire.
