Make A Multi-Color Flower Wreath

This wreath is made with artificial flowers of all types and colors glued to a grapevine wreath.

The multi-color wreath is a bit different from the kind I usually make. For this wreath, I pulled out all the stops and used an assortment of artificial flowers from my tote of thrifted flowers. I’ve never been a fan of this type wreath….but now I am. Take a look and let me know what you think.

I have grapevine wreaths in all sizes, shapes, and styles. I pulled this one with the oranges and ribbon (Fall decorating) from the shelf and stripped all the stuff from the grapevine wreath.

I have a tote packed full of flowers I bought at thrift stores or from craft stores when they were on sale. Some of the flowers are from old, outdated grapevine wreaths I purchased and then stripped of flowers.

I took out the brightly colored Spring and Summer looking flowers to work with.

My first thought was to glue the large greenery stem to the grapevine wreath as a base for the flowers.

Then I changed my mind. I found the bright yellow sprigs of something? and decided to use them along with a few green leaves to fill in around the flowers once I glued them to the wreath.

I first cut the stems from the flowers and laid them out on the grapevine wreath in what I thought looked like a pleasing arrangement.

Then I began gluing the flowers in place with my hot glue gun. Of course, as usual, I changed up the arrangement as I worked. After the flowers were all in place, I filled empty spaces with a few green leaves from the cut flower stems and the yellow stem thingies (I still don’t know what to call them).
