This tutorial will show you how to make an apple grapevine wreath. It's a great wreath for spring or summer. I made this one for my kitchen. It will hang up above the stove on a brick wall. Here's the video tutorial:
My first thoughts had been to use the entire garland around the wreath, but I decided this might be too much, so I just snipped off three pieces. There was still enough garland left to make another wreath or project. Secure the garland pieces to the grapevine with small zip ties.
Since this wreath was going in my house and not to the store for sale or anything, I did not use any hot glue. That being said, you would want to use hot glue to secure pieces if you were going to use this wreath outside, or sell your creation.
I did take some images of the wreath on my front door, just to get the images. But the wreath will be hanging, stationary, in my kitchen above the stove. Since I didn't connect anything permanently to the grapevine, I'll be able to re-purpose it later for a late summer or early fall wreath.
Don't you get tired of the same thing hanging around all the time? Well, not the hubby or anything, but you know what I mean. I love to move things around, place3 arrangements in different rooms of the house. And I absolutely love repurposing something and making it new again. It's a great way to save a few bucks too.
Make a bow for the apple grapevine wreath with the two ribbons and attach with floral wire. You can use a bowmaker, which is probably what I should have done since I had to re-do the bow. But, that's what happens! The hardest part about making a hand-tied bow is getting those darn loops even!
Tuck in some extra pieces of greenery. As I have said before, I love to re-purpose. The pieces of greenery I used had been re-purposed and no longer available on the website, but I gave another product link that would work just as well. The long green twig was cut into pieces and tucked it. The green curly twig is still available and listed above.
The apple grapevine wreath was easy to make and really didn't take much time especially since I didn't get out the hot glue or anything for this project. Again, I would have used hot glue if I had planned to use this wreath outside.
My work board is a piece of pre-cut dry erase board from Lowes. It's heavy enough to support wreath work but no trouble to move around. It also provides a good backdrop for wreath images. I placed a Command hook at the top to hold the wreath.
And just as a side note, I use Canva to edit images. It's not the only program I use, my arsenal also includes PicMonkey and Photoshop. But Canva is super easy especially when you want to remove the background from an image. Above is the before, and below is the after with the background removed. One click and done! Now, every images won't come out quite as clean, but it has produced pretty remarkable results for me so far. I use Canva for most all my Pinterest images.
If you've never tried Canva, check it out. They have a 90-day free trial going on right now which is great.
