Making Wreaths

My newest craft hobby is evidently making wreaths.  My first wreath project was a birthday present for my best friend Lane. I saw a Gerbera daisy wreath in a catalog, and thought, “that is so perfect for Lane!”  I thought I could make it for less than it cost in the catalog, which turned out to probably not be true, but I had so much fun making it, and I felt it meant more that I had put in the time.

I forgot to take an after picture, but here is the inspiration picture from the catalog’s website.  I used different color flowers and also had a bow on mine, so you can just imagine it right?

 

Then, I saw another wreath in the same catalog for autumn, and again thought, “I can make that!”  I already had the gourds/pumpkins and some berries.  So off to Garden Ridge I went, and returned with some fall flowers, a grapevine wreath, and some ribbon.  Who knew these wreaths that they sell for $50 and $60 in the store were so easy to make?  A little hot glue, a little wire, and voila!  (I will say that trying to teach myself to make a bow was a trying experience, but I am pleased with the outcome of my very first bow-making attempt)

Next up:  A Christmas wreath with a UGA theme.  Fun times!

I have never done much decorating for holidays other than Christmas, but I think I have found a new way to decorate without having to store too much stuff for each season.
