Welcome to the first outdoor decor post of the season! We’re kicking off with the most logical place to start, which is (in my opinion) the front door. Since we’re well into spring but it’s not quite summer, I’m calling today’s project a summer’s eve grapevine wreath. There is no glue and no wire…and it’s easy.

Summer’s Eve Grapevine Wreath Supplies Needed:

(All flower stems are from Hobby Lobby and I was able to link to the exact items I used. I know billy buttons are usually yellow, but I found these blue ones and liked them much better!)

*Note: When I was making this wreath, I had in mind that the flowers would be on the left side, so I photographed the assembly that way. When the wreath was finished and on my door, I changed my mind! It looked much better with the flowers on the top. The assembly is the same no matter how you hang it. 

  • Place your wreath on a flat surface and determine the top. Attach a wire hanger.
  • With wire cutters, cut all the stems 4 to 5 inches below where the leaves end.
  • Insert the lamb’s ear stems into the top center (or side) of the wreath, going in opposite directions. 
  • Insert the lavender the same way.

  • Next is the ranunculus. Insert two stems going in each direction and one in the middle. They should have depth and be a little floppy.
  • Complete the arrangement by inserting the billy buttons so they hang down under the ranunculus.

As always, you can substitute any flower stems you like or have on hand. The wreath assembly will be the same. Just start at the center and work out in opposite directions.

The next few weeks are going to be busy ones here on the blog and for me at home. I’m trying to get my outdoor spaces put together and I am so ready to plant my herb garden. As always, I hope you can join me as we celebrate the arrival of spring and summer.

  14. Thanks for the instructions, looks easy. I agree with your decision to hang the wreath with the flowers at the top. I am going to try making this for myself. I also love the Lobelia in your planters and how it works with your blue door.

  15. Those Billy Buttons! I just love the way they hang playfully! It’s so you…classic with a dash of whimsy. ❤️

    Love the front door and the wreath looks perfect. The Lavender and billybuttons are perfect with the ranunculus . No bow needed with those colors and textures!
    I’m inspired to make one. Love your Website.

  24. Ann, Thank you again for a beautiful idea. I think I’m going to have to make two of these. One for my mom for Mother’s day, and one for myself.
    Thanks for another great idea!

  25. Janice Sautter says:

    I love the wreath and your door color. Whats is your pots?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Janice! It’s lobelia. I’m sharing more info on that in an upcoming post. Stay tuned!

  26. I’ve retired the various wreath hangers I’ve always used for our front door. Instead I use one of those genius Command hooks and a wire edged ribbon. A small matching bow or another silk flower hides the Command hook. Or you can place an upside down Command hook on the inside of the door and run the ribbon over the top, front to back. That upside down hook makes a nice way to hang things on kitchen cabinet doors as well.

    Wreath hangers aren’t unattractive but they tend to scratch door paint. And I just plain luvvers wire edged ribbon.
