How to Make a Standing Wreath in a Container

Posted by on Aug 4, 2013 in crafts, family room, wreaths | 9 comments

Our summer of freedom is almost officially over. :(

Middle School Orientation Monday night…

Elementary School Orientation Tuesday night…

Giant Back-to-School youth group event Wednesday night…

Hosting 60 middle school girls and their families for dinner Thursday night…

So, of course, I am making a new wreath.

That’s what anyone else would do, right?!

Because, I saw this super cute “wreath in a clay pot” at a really nice,

expensive store last week.

And, I knew that I wanted one.

And, I had this great idea that I just knew would work.

So, I could not get anything else done until I saw if this idea would

actually work.

And, it did. :)

One grapevine wreath that is the correct proportion to the container

Vine – like greenery

I used this greenery from Hobby Lobby.

I just pulled off a few pieces.

Wrapped the vine in

and around the grapevine wreath.

Using TONS of hot glue,

secured the wreath to the foam.

For extra support,

I added hot glue to the floral pins and inserted them into the wreath

attaching it to the foam.

I used 5 of these pins.

I added sheet moss to cover the foam.

And, then found the perfect new home  for this “wreath in a pot.”

Now, I guess I should start working on the things that actually need to get done for my girls to start back to school…

Life to the full!

  4. That turned out really pretty. I have a girlfriend who has made several of those over the years and I always intend to figure out how to do it. Now I know. :) The shape of your container and the rustic look is neat with the brass table.

  9. I really like your wreaths. I wanted to make 1 but my hands hurt so
    bad with R/A I just can’t do it. So keep making the so cute & pretty
    wreaths. and maybe some day you’ll come up with an idea that handy capped people can make that won’t make their R/A hurt worse.
