Hello everyone!  Thank you for stopping by and taking time to read this!  Today, I was energized and had some creative mojo going…love that feeling!  Don’t you all???  So, in between cleaning and rearranging décor, I decided to make a simple spring wreath!  I always keep extra grapevine wreaths and florals in the house so when I have the creative urge, it happens! One thing I need to improve on is making sure I have an adequate supply of glue sticks for my glue gun.

I am really pleased with the wreath I made today.  My inspiration came from one I had previously seen on Pinterest.  Although, mine doesn’t look exactly like the one on Pinterest, it has some of the same characteristics.  The first one featured below is the one from Pinterest.  I love its simplicity!  The use of baby’s breath with the mix of greenery is just so airy and pretty!

The one below is the one I made.  As you can see, it’s quite a bit bigger and there is more thickness to the grapevine wreath than the one used in the Pinterest photo.   Since my wreath is made with florals, I had to improvise a bit.  I used little white florals that imitate the baby’s breath and used eucalyptus branches to add volume.

At least with faux florals, my wreath will stay fresh looking and is reusable! I bought the wreath, greenery and flowers from Hobby Lobby!  Always be sure to watch for their sales.  They have 50% off quite often and they’re selection is amazing!!  Like I implied earlier, I ran out of  glue sticks and so once I get a restock, I’ll glue the twigs/stems to the wreath.  I might even add more greenery and white flowers.  What do you all think?

My tip of the day on wreath making:  do not glue your twigs/branches in until you are 100% sure you are pleased with your wreath.  It’s so much easier to correct and rearrange without glue strings and spots sticking to your wreath and florals.

Well, I’m off to bed.  Thanks again for stopping by and happy wreath making, my friends.

Xo…Jill
