I am back with a very fun project- How to make a fall wreath in five easy steps.
I made one a few nights ago, it was quite simple and took less than fifteen minutes. It’s a great decoration to hang on your door during the Thanksgiving season. It was under twenty dollars also and all the supplies can be found at Wal-Mart except the Hydrangeas.
What you need to make your own grape-vine fall wreath:
First of all the grapevine wreath, of course!
Next, some sort of filler flowers. (I used a white mum bush.)
Hydrangeas (The ones I used, were spray-painted blue and we cut them off our own bush.)
A wheat bush.
Now, How to make the wreath:
Prepare your materials.
Cut all your flowers apart but leave about 6-8 inches of stem per flower. Then, unwrap the wheat bush.
Next, begin to tuck the pieces of the wheat bush into the wreath. I first put in the parts of the wheat bush that looked like corn husks. Then I tucked the more “plastic” pieces in. I just tucked them into about half of the grapevine wreath.
Step 3. Once your wheat bush is tucked into the wreath, start tucking eucalyptus in evenly on one half of the wreath.
Step 4. Everything but the hydrangea and filler flowers should be wound/tucked into the wreath. Now, add your flowers, filling in all the holes between the small things and the wheat bush.
Step 5. You know have made your fall wreath! Congratulations! The last step is to hang it up and enjoy!
