Ok, so that title is really lame, but I don't care because....well, I'm lame! :) But you love me anyway and that's what counts, right?
I told you I would have a project for you on Monday, so here it is! Yay! I'm actually on time for once!!
So anyway, I thought I would share a little "how-to" on a fall wreath that I did the other day. Its really cute, and perfect for all year long, and you can use any combination of flowers that you would like.
Here is what you will need to get started:
1 grapevine wreath
faux floral stems (as many as you would like)
faux bird, birds nest, and eggs
hot glue gun with plenty of glue
Here is how I made it:
I started with three floral stems. One is a large hydrangea, one is made of these tiny little flowers that almost feel rubbery, and one is like mossy.
I then picked off the flowers from the stems. These should just pop off from the stem very easily.
Then I hot glued them on in random places on the front AND the back. This is very important because it makes it look more natural to have some of the moss and flowers peaking out from behind the wreath.
(I forgot to take a photo of this, I'm so sorry.) So, then I hot glued the little bird into the nest along with a few eggs, and I used floral wire to hold it on.
Once its all done, this is what it should look like:
Here are a few detail photos of the different areas and clusters of flowers.
This was really easy, and only took me about 10 minutes.
Here is a breakdown of the cost:
