For this month’s Craft De-Stash Challenge, I decided to tackle a project I have been procrastinating on for I can’t remember how long. The materials for this Lavender & White Floral Spring Wreath have been languishing in their original Michael’s bags in the corner of my craft room for months. Okay, maybe languishing is overly dramatic, but they’ve been sitting there taking up space. Part of my reluctance was fear of failure. Despite all of my crafty knowledge and my wreath making skill, I’ve never actually made a traditional floral wreath. I know, what!? Well, while I may be a Jill-of-all-trades in the craft room, I do not, in fact, know how to make everything. Are you making the shock face? So, without further ado, here’s how it went:

Lavender & White Floral Spring Wreath
- 14-inch Grapevine Wreath Form
- Krylon Chalky Finish White Spray Paint
- Large Lavender Faux Flowers
- Small White Faux Flowers
- Floral Wire (Optional)
- Wire Cutters
one: Spray paint the grapevine wreath form on both sides. Spray painting it was so, so much easier than I anticipated. It sprayed into all of the nooks and crannies of the vines very well and I only needed one coat on each side. Plus, it dries pretty quickly.
two: Take your wire cutters and trim the stems from the bunch at the base. If you don’t have wire cutters handy, needle nose pliers have wire cutters built into them.
three: Lay your white flower pieces on top of the wreath for to get an idea of how you want them to be permanently attached. Do this with your lavender flowers as well. Once you have an arrangement you like, take a quick snapshot so you can refer to it as you go along.
four: One at a time, weave the white flower stems through and around the grapevines, all pointing the same direction, leaving a large enough gap for the lavender flowers. You may want to hot glue the end pieces down and out of site so they don’t slip out or use floral wire, but I found that weaving the flowers stems in secured them well enough.
five: Now do the same with the lavender flowers. I didn’t use all of the flowers from the bunch since I didn’t want to have lavender flowers all the way around the wreath.
That’s it! Making this Lavender & White Floral Spring Wreath was far easier than I had imagined it would be. I must be thinking of the floral wreaths that use the foam forms. With the grapevine wreath forms, it’s easy to weave them stems of the flowers through it and secure them, as long as they’re bendable. This lovely wreath will end up in my bedroom since it matches all of my purple decor. I tried it on the front door, but it was just too pretty to leave out in this Florida weather. I also don’t want bugs and frogs in it. Yes, frogs. Florida is so much fun.
