I subscribe to the theory that you can never have enough wreaths. You may have noticed if you've browsed this little corner of the internets that I call home. It's just a thing.
The thing is, wreaths are expensive. Like really expensive. I don't get it. The good news: both of these wreath's cost me less than $5. So today while thinking I probably should be finishing some painting in my bathroom, I did this instead. And because you want to make one too, I made a tutorial.
I have had 2 grapevine wreaths hanging in my dining room windows for awhile. I just liked the natural and wild way about them.
I got them at Hobby Lobby on a day that wreaths were 50% off, so they ended up being $1.99 each. I think mine was 14 inches.
I have several boxwood's growing in my back yard, so I just went out and cut snippets off of the brightest colored bush. If you don't have a boxwood, you could ask a friend or neighbor. If all else fails, you can buy faux boxwood greenery at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. It can be a little pricey though, so be sure to use a coupon.
Go get your clippings.
Push the bottom of the stem into the wreath and secure. I used a dab of hot glue on pieces that I thought were too loose, but some of them were very tight without glue.
Continue working around your wreath. I tucked small pieces in where I needed extra fluff, but I didn't want to hide the grapevine completely. You can add as much or as little as you'd like. The stems may pop out in places, so in some places I glued the tips in if they were too wild.
I already had the jute webbing to hang my wreath, but you could use ribbon, put it on the front door on a wreath hanger. It would be really great in a big empty frame.
What's not to love!
