Anyway, let your imagination run wild and give wreath making a try.
2 grapevine wreaths
Glue gun and glue sticks
Flowers/decorations of your choosing
(if you're wondering what the paper plate is for, it's what I rest
my glue gun on to catch the inevitable gloppy drips)
Start off by wiring the two grapevine wreaths together in 4 places (think points on a compass....north, south, east, west).
I like to use 2 wreaths to give a more lush appearance.
Place your more willowy, flowing flowers on first, so they'll be in the background of your display. I tucked mine through the grapevine wreath and also used floral wire and hot glue. You could probably omit the floral wire if you just want to glob on more glue.
Add your second layer of decorations (fall leaves in my case). I just cut them and placed them on the wreath to see what configuration I liked, then I went back and hot glued each leaf in place. If your wreath is going to be outside, be very generous with the hot glue. You might also want to have some ice water handy for the inevitable "Ouch...#$*%" moment when the glue drips onto your fingers.
Uh....not that it's ever happened to me....I'm just saying....
Well, I got carried away and forgot to snap pictures of me adding the rest of the flowers and the gourds/pumpkins, but it's basically the same process. Lay them out, see what looks best to you, and then glue the heck out of the little buggers.
Here's the finished product
You can see that I added several different types of flowers.
I like different styles, colors and sizes to add dimension and interest.
Love the little gourds and pumpkins.
You can do this!!
