I’m back in action friends and I am sorry to the email subscribers for the Feedburner issue that I had with the same title in the subject line in the last 4 posts. Yikes! I bet you guys were thinking I was a little too obsessed with easy kitchen updates! Ugh!!
Ok, the deal is that if you unsubscribed and jumped over to the facebook page, you can now re-subscribe here and you will start getting the emails again. Existing email subscribers do not have to do anything. My email subscriber list magically appeared back on Feedburner yesterday after I had resigned myself that the list was gone forever. Needless to say, it’s been a bad tech week for me and I am ready to get back to hanging out with you guys. So let’s move on, shall we?
If you have never made a door wreath before, or have zero time to make one, then this project is just for you! This is an inexpensive way to dress up your door each season and it only takes about 20 minutes, but the end result looks like so much more.
By using a grapevine wreath and 4-5 long floral stems, you don’t need any floral wire or hot glue because the grapevine wreath itself is what will hold the stems in place. So this is all you’ll need:
Basic grapevine wreaths are inexpensive (mine was $4.99) and you can find them in any craft store and they come in multiple sizes. Once you buy one grapevine wreath, you’re good to go and can switch out stems for each season, making this project even cheaper! You can pick up any long floral stem at the craft store as well and anything will work and long berry stems look amazing in this type of wreath. You will need to make sure that the stem itself is brown to blend in with the brown of the grapevine.
If the stem is not brown and you want to use something green, you can buy brown floral tape for $1.00 in the floral section of the craft store as well and then you can wrap the stem.
Next, just bend and arc your stem like this:
Slide your first stem under parts of the grapevine down the middle to secure the stem to the wreath and pull it around:
For your next stem, do the same thing as above but slide the stem in the grapevine to where the end rests about halfway or more down the first stem:
For this wreath, I used 5 stems because I wanted the wreath full. This grapevine wreath trick will work with any long floral stems, berries or long Christmas sprigs for the holidays.
I hope you can use this quick trick and you can pretty much do anything to the wreath as long as you can secure whatever your using under the grapevine!
I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend!
