Happy Friday, everyone!! We’re gearing up for another busy weekend with a Lenten Fish Fry at the church tonight and palm cross folding for Palm Sunday tomorrow morning. I thought I’d jump in here before the craziness begins and show you how I made the Spring wreaths on my front doors from this Spring Front Porch post last week. It was super easy and not too expensive. You can make one, too!
I already had one grapevine wreath from years ago in my possession. I visited Michaels with a 20% off my whole purchase coupon to find a similar wreath and some Spring looking flowers. I knew I was looking for white flowers. I learned nearly 17 years ago when I got married that you can get away with fewer flowers if you go with all white. Plus, I saw a lovely all white flower wreath on a friend’s front door back when I lived in Montgomery, Alabama, that I wanted to try and copy.
Here’s what I purchased:
1 Grapevine wreath at $4.99
4 bunches of Baby’s Breath at $1.99 each
8 bunches of White Lily at 2.99 each
Minus 20% ($7.37) off = $29.50
Cost per wreath: $14.75. The total would be slightly higher to copy since I already had one wreath. Although if you caught the flower stems on a 40% off sale and used a 40% off coupon on the wreath you could do even better!
To assemble the wreaths:
1. Lay out all of your supplies
The grapevine wreaths have changed a little over the years. My old one was a little bit smaller but overall tighter and better quality. You can see the difference in this photo (the old one is on the left):
I’m pretty sure the old one came from Michaels, too, about 20 years ago!
2. Snip all of the Baby’s Breath into single stems with wire cutters so you can spread them around the wreaths:
3. Lay everything out on the wreaths the way you want it to look:
4. Stick the stems through the branches of the wreaths and tuck them in behind:
And that’s it! Super easy and quick with a beautiful result.
Have a terrific weekend! I’m off to work on more of my to-do list so I have something to report to you on Monday. Nothing like a little accountability to get you moving!!
