Spring Wreath

I finally created a wreath that looks half way decent!So, I am so excited for this wreath!  Of course, this wreath was done last year, but since I took this picture I painted the front door!  I decided to re-post because it was a so popular.

I painted the door after the wreath was finished.It looks even better against the black door!  That’s it!  DSC_0111

Supplies

Grapevine wreath from Michael’s  (with coupon)
Garland branches (2) from Hobby Lobby (weekly sale)
Wire cutters to cut the stems.
I just cut the stems off the garland and wove it between
the grapevine branches.  I didn’t use glue (I’ll see how it holds up this week).
I could not get the acrylic thread to attach to the “N” so I used wire and hid the wire under the stems. Having the wire show is like panty lines… not pretty but sometimes it’s just easier!
Loving it!
