Easy 5-Second Wreath

The other day I was Pinteresting on a totally unrelated scouring mission and happened to scroll past a few amazing wreath ideas. Within hours I suddenly found myself browsing the aisles of Michaels. As I was loading my cart with materials for what was bound to be an expensive and elaborate front door showpiece I eventually did manage to regain control over myself and redirected my mission a little. Anyone else experience these lapses in financial judgement when in a craft store? I thought so.

Anyway, I regained some sense when I came across these grapevine wreaths and noticed they were only $4.99. The low price tag on these even though they look durable and far more expensive than they are inspired me to keep this project super low cost. And, because of the way the grapevine wreath is constructed I thought I could keep the project “tool-less” too. Overall, the project cost less than $15 and required nothing other than the wreath, flowers, and a couple seconds to make.

Instructions:

Taking one floral stem at a time, weave it into the grapevine wreath until its secure and in the position you desire. I started by placing my topmost floral stem and then worked my way down. The stems on the faux flowers matched perfectly with the grapevine so they aren’t noticeable at all. I call this “5-second wreath” because this took me less than a minute to make.

If it doesn’t look the way you want it to right away, simply start over. I did have to pop the flower heads off a few stems to weave the tops in between the grapevine to make them more secure. They popped right back on easily. And the best part about this project is that since you aren’t hot-gluing the flowers in and they are left completely intact you can deconstruct the entire thing when the season over and reuse both pieces for other projects.
