This is our pay back time for having such amazing Winters, and it is painful.
It doesn't seem logical that we are housebound in the afternoons when the sky's are blue, and we are
clamoring to be outside.
We are also apartment dwellers, while our home is being built, and we miss our yard and pool.
(I have some great news to share later on in the week about the construction of our French Country Home )
So when life gives you scalding heat,
I haven't made a wreath since I made this Patriotic Summer Wreath.
I enjoy designing, and crafting wreaths, and have been doing this for years, and selling a few as well.
I have shared several of my designs, and tutorials with you all, and here I am today sharing another one!
I have French Country on my mind 24/7 seriously, in the night, in the morning, in my sleep.
So anything that I am thinking of purchasing or making is French Country.
I am immersing myself on the French Country style- for our home I am choosing to add this
Garden Wreath to our future Front door, or on one of our bookcases in the Library.
Items needed for this wreath~
2.Two bouquets of your choice of flowers
3.Accent flowers - petite are great fillers and they are sweet and simple
I find that purchasing bouquets are more economical than individual stems especially if they
are the large blooms.
Please remember to always purchase your floral when it is 50 percent off, otherwise there is a chance that you could purchase a pre-made wreath for the same price of buying all of these items.
You are my sweet friends, I am looking out for you, and I want you to have a DIY project that is
not only fun but super easy on your pocket book....smiling....
1. Take those bouquets and clip all of the individual stems off, including the leaves and
separate them into little groups.
2. Beginning with leaves first, tuck or wire them into place on the grapevine wreath.
3. Tuck or wire in the flowers beginning with the large flowers first.
4. Add all flowers
5. Add petite flowers
Presto a DIY Garden Wreath is born!
