I have a love hate relationship with spring right now. I want it to come, I'm totally wishing the snow away, but I'm stilling wondering what the heck happened to summer ;) My house has been in a pretty stagnant state since Christmas. Luckily, all my Christmas decor is down, but I haven't added any fresh bits of spring yet. I decided that since March is next week, that it's about time. I actually had the items to make this wreath stashed away since Christmas, so I'm glad to finally get them out and use them!

This is pretty much the easiest wreath I have ever made. I used a grapevine wreath and some faux eucalyptus garland I got from Hobby Lobby.

To start the wreath, I found the spine of the garland. That's the part that all the leaves are attached to.

I started at one end, and then just started hot gluing the spine around the middle of the wreath making sure that no leaves were underneath it.

Once I went around the entire wreath, I used some wire snippers, and cut the spine.

My wreath looked a little crazy at this point.

With the extra pieces of the garland, I separated them from the spine.

Then glued them into the bare spots of the wreath, filling it in. I also tried to get the majority of the leaves going in the same direction by bending the wires around the wreath. This made it look not so crazy like the picture before.

I love how full this wreath is. It looks great on my mantel and springs it up :)

The best part, is that it cost about $20. With using a coupon and sales, the garland was $17ish and the wreath was under $3. Not bad :) My favorite part is just how simple it is to make.

  2. I'm getting ready for a room-by-room redesign over at Total Home Makeover, and this wreath caught my eye! I use a lot of green on white in my own decorating. Thanks for the tutorial.
