There are times that my Pinterest boards feel like torture…all those adorable/frugal/home beautifying projects that I never seem to have the time, energy, or crafting skills for. At the same time, creating something for my home is tremendously rewarding.
I moved (staying on post, just a different house) last month and wanted something to cheer up my new front door. I love fall colors for decorating but wanted a wreath that looked a little bit different. Off to Pinterest I went for some inspiration.
I liked these projects:
On a trip to the craft store (oh, happy place!) for something else, I noticed grapevine wreaths on clearance, giving me a perfect place to start.
1 grapevine wreath
Adornment of choice (I used silk hydrangeas)
Hot glue gun and glue
- Spray paint wreath color of your choice. I found it worked best to prop my wreath up and be able to spray at a variety of angles to get in between the vines and coat the wreath. Let dry. (I did two coats as I wanted a bright, vibrant color- and I could see spots I missed!)
- Cut silk flower stems leaving enough stem to stick into the wreath without going all the way through.
- *Carefully* dab hot glue on the stem of the silk flowers and place as desired on the vines.
**I left it at that. Using spray paint that I already had (this took less than half a can) and catching the wreath on sale, this project cost me less than $20. Cute AND cheap- makes it THAT much cuter!**
