Learn how to create this simple DIY wreath that costs under $15 to make!
I love this wreath because it is so simple to make and you can use any color scheme, so it is a great wreath design that you can use all seasons. We made this wreath in fall colors, but it would be great in any color combo!
Supplies needed to make this super easy DIY wreath:
- 14 inch grapevine wreath base
- 2 bushes of peony flowers (you could also use hydrangeas if you prefer)
- Wire Cutters
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
STEP ONE: You will want to begin by placing your grapevine wreath on a flat surface (I used my kitchen island) and find the center of the top of the wreath. Cut your flower stem with wire cutters, leaving about a 3 inch stem.
STEP TWO: Place your flower in the center of the top of the wreath base.
STEP THREE: Next you will cut a flower of an alternate color and place directly beside your first flower. Repeat this process, alternating each of your colored flowers all the way around the wreath.
STEP FOUR: After you have gone all the way around your wreath with your flowers, alternating colors, you will then want to flip your wreath over and place your hot glue gun where each stem is coming out of the base of the wreath, and apply a good bit of glue to secure your stem.
STEP FIVE: Apply a generous amount of glue to each stem, you then use your floral wire cutters to cut any excess stems that are sticking out of the back of the wreath. You are going to want to be sure to cut the stems off as close to the wreath base as possible to make sure the stems don’t scratch your door.
STEP SIX: Next, to add a bit of extra fullness and dimension to your wreath, cut off the leaves that are leftover on the bush of flowers and glue along the outside (and you can also add a few on the inside if you would like) of the wreath base. Just add a small drop of glue to the stem of the leaf and push into the grapevine base. You can add as few, or as many of the leaves as you want. When you have finished adding the leaves, your wreath will be ready to hang.
STEP SEVEN: Hang it and enjoy all season long!
