During my weekend shopping spree, I came across a plain grapevine wreath for the low, low price of $2.00!
Ever since I've lived in this house (my first house), I've wanted to make my own wreath, so I saw this as my golden opportunity. So today I went to Michael's of Annapolis which hosts a large selection of artificial fall foliage. I chose the following to decorate my wreath:
|$10 each for a total of $20|
|$2.00 each for a total of $4.00|
First, I separated the branches of the leaves and then cut them along the indentations using wire cutters:
|The indentation is to the right of my fingers|
|These are the wire cutters I used.|
I cut bunches of leaves about this size:
And stuck them into the wreath. Then, I separated the berries by pulling out each wire separately, and stuck these into the wreath as well. Finally, I used this wreath hanger from Michael's ($2.49) to hang it on my front door!
Here's the final product. The angle isn't that great because of how our porch is (I couldn't get a straight on view of the entire wreath).
