For as long as I can remember, I have loved wreaths. I’ve had them in every room of my house at one time or another…and of course as a symbol of hospitality on my front door. Over the years, I have picked up tips and tricks that have made wreath-making easy and fun. I’d like to share those tips as a token of my thanks for your support of my blog so I’ve put together a little tutorial called Wreath Making 101.
Nine times out of ten I start with a grapevine wreath…or really two grapevine wreaths. Visit my How to Make a Wreath post for details on how to get started. I show you how to take a plain, nothing wreath and transform it into something wonderful.Not always, but most of the time, I add a bow. There are lots of ways to make a bow…but if you want a perfect one every time just follow the directions in my post How to Make a Perfect Bow.
Now that the basics are taken care of, it’s time to add your own signature touch. Below are some wreaths and door baskets I have designed that may inspire you to dig in and make one of your very own. Many times all I need is a little inspiration to get started. Sort of like planting a seed. Use my seeds…but make them grow yourself.
As inspiration strikes I will be adding more how-to’s.
Now get out there and make something beautiful!
