Mothers Day is just a few days away and I finally got my moms gift done! (Mom if you are reading sorry you are seeing your gift early!) I have only made a wreath once before and the only flowers that were on it were fabric flowers. I am just not good with flower arrangements so I had some trouble with this project but I think it came together nicely, thanks to the help of one of my girlfriends.
This is the wreath I made back in February. I think it’s time to change things up. Now that my moms wreath is done I have time to focus on mine! I am not a “wreath for every season” type of girl, but that’s mainly because I don’t have storage for them. I think I might need to find some storage because wreaths are so much fun to make.
The floral wreath I made for my mom cost me less than $16. When I looked on-line or in the craft store to buy one pre made they started at $40 and went all the way up to $90.
Here was my shopping list (I could have saved more but I forgot my coupons 😦 )
- Grapevine wreath- $4.99
- (1) Red Berries- $2.49
- Sunflower Bush- $4.99
- English Ivy- $2.99
You will also need wire cutters and some type of wire. I separated the sunflowers by cutting them off the bunch down at the end of the stem. I wanted to leave the stems as long as I could so that I could weave them into the wreath. I did the same for the Berries and the English Ivy. Then I just started playing around until I found something I liked.
I hope that within the next week I will post the other summer wreath I am working on, its burlap and looking really cute!!
