Use ranunculus, lavender, lamb’s ear, and little billy buttons to make this Summer’s Eve Grapevine Wreath. Perfect for your summer front porch!
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:
- 5 stems ranunculus
- 2 stems billy buttons
- 2 stems lavender
- 2 stems lamb’s ear
- 18 inch wreath
- wire cutters
(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.
