About 15 years ago I made my own vine wreaths - very easy to make. I redecorate them for all holidays.
You can often find used vine wreaths at rummage sales or thrift shops. If you want you can also purchase new from the store. Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnns and even Walmart has vine wreaths.
I have a small wreath for the back door and a large wreath for the front. To make the wreath I need 1 roll of ribbon and a shiny designed rope.
For the back I used foiled rope with shamrocks and for the front door Isa picked out green garland. Ribbon, rope and garland was purchased from the Dollar Store.
Wrap the rope around the front of the wreath. Do not go in and out and around. Stay on the front of the vine - using the vine to hold the rope in place.
Once the shiny rope is secure you can start making bows..Make numerous simple bows on top of each other. I like this type of bow for wreaths - makes them look full and unique.
Front Door Wreath
This was the front door Valentine's Wreath
Simple holiday wreaths. I save my ropes and ribbon from year to year. This year while shopping at the Dollar store Isa found the garland and new green ribbon that she wanted to use. The foil shamrocks are from last year.
Shamrock Wreaths for 2014 cost $3.00 for two wreaths - 2 rolls of Green Ribbon and I roll of Green Garland (Green shamrock foil rope was from last year's wreath) purchased from the Dollar Store.
While shopping at the Dollar Store yesterday I picked up some shiny Easter items...check back on the March 19th ~ I will be making and posting pics of my Easter Wreaths.
