While working on bigger projects

I'm 9 days from the *hopeful* arrival of baby boy #2. And working on redecorating the room that my 2 boys will share. So, in the meantime, I've made one holiday wreath and one spring wreath. Here's the one for  Spring (only took me about 10 minutes to make, once I had all of the supplies.

What you need:

  • Grapevine wreath (you choose the size)
  • Fake Flora...I went with a white and purple theme, but it's up to you. I had 3 large white/off white flowers, 1 stem of longer purple, and 3-4 bunches of violets
  • Accessories. For this one I went with a couple of small birds.
  • Glue Gun
That's it! fairly simple.

Then, all you do is arrange the flowers in the wreath until you get the desired effect. I placed my larger flowers first, then the smaller ones. The birds went on last. 

I haven't gotten around to gluing them in yet, but as soon as I get my glue gun back from my friend I will add drops of hot glue where necessary to hold everything in place.
