Summer Sunflower Grapevine Wreath

This is Month Two of My Wreath Makeover Series.

I am continuing my mission to use the many wreaths which I already 

have and update them.

At one time this was a very pretty wreath, it has lost 

it's appeal and color.

Florist clippers are a must for the individual who

enjoys making crafts.  This little tool cut off all of 

those ugly old berries.

I did this painting in the garage as it was a windy day.  

Take care when painting with spray paint-cover up 

to protect what you don't want painted.

Step by step this wreath is improved, with craft products that

I already had.

As you can see, it was important to maintain 

continuity.  I used the blue burlap mesh from the 

wreath on the front door for my bow on the burlap 

wreath.  Keeping with yellow, I added sunflowers on 

the grapevine wreath.

Next step-yellow fabric for some snazzy pillows on my 


Should I use solid or print fabric?

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. Very nice, Jemma! I would not have thought to spray paint a grapevine wreath, but it looks fabulous!

    I love your entryway to your home! Mine needs some work, I'm afraid.

    Have a lovely day!

  2. Very pretty - I think you should do yellow with a titch of the blue - like the reverse of the colors.

    Question - I bought the ribbons for that one wreathe - was you white ribbon - 5 to 6 inches wide? Seems really wide.

    Love, sandie

  3. Very pretty Jemma! I like the pop of yellow.. perfect for summertime. xxleslie
