The Things You’ll Need
Step by Step Tutorial For Your Summer Wreath
- Start with a 20-inch grapevine wreath. This one is from Hobby Lobby and it goes half off every three weeks or so.
- Cut each stem from the hydrangea bush, giving yourself enough stem to poke into the grapevine. You can use the lines on the stems as a guide.
- Cut the lavender as close to the base as possible. Use strong wire cutters.
- This is what the hydrangea looks like cut. Aren’t they beautiful?
- Pop off the leaves from the hydrangea bush to have in case you need to cover any stems or “holes” along the wreath. Save what you don’t use for other projects! Notice my little helper. She was drawing a picture for me!
- Lay out the flowers in the direction and pattern you want them before you glue them down to make sure you have enough hydrangea stems for the look you want to achieve.
- I did cream, pink, cream, pink over 3/4 of the wreath.
- Then place a small amount of hot glue on the stem and push it between the grapevine to secure it.
I had a little helper here.
- Lay a light layer of hot glue down on the lavender stem and push it in between the grapevine.
- The pink hydrangea bush from Hobby Lobby had beautiful greenery stems that I clipped as well and I added those last on the inside of the wreath for some added green.
This wreath was so pretty on it’s own that I didn’t make a bow for it. I felt like a bow would distract from the simpleness of it that I love so much.
