Just Call Me Martha

I decided to make my house a little more homey and took on the task of making a homemade wreath.  I got the idea from Pinterest and it didn't turn out all that bad if I say so myself.  


You'll need a small wire wreath skeleton, 6 fake hydrangeas (2 colors, 3 in each colors) green wire, scissors, wire cutters, ribbon, and glue gun/glue.


You can also use the leaves from the fake flowers to fill in the holes between the flowers.  They're pretty easy to pull off by hand


You'll want to cut the flowers with the stem about right here on the flower, below the base.


Wrap the flowers with wire to the wreath skeleton - alternate colors.


After wrapping all of the flowers and leaves around, find an opening section where you want your ribbon. Cut the ribbon long enough for you to tie in a bow and hang (you can always trim the edges if there is too much later).  Wrap around the skeleton and hot glue.together like so.



Hang a 3M hang and tie around.



Voila!

  14. I actually love making things like this, there's something really lovely about sitting down and creating something and then each time you look at it you'll always know that it's a unique piece and you put your hard work and time into it - I always seem to get a lot more creative around Christmas….. :)

    1. You're so right! I feel very possessive of my wreath lol. And Christmas time is perfect for crafting - snow is perfect to set the crafty mood.

  37. It turned out great! I just love Pinterest. I used to be famous for pinning and not actually attempting to duplicate anything I had pinned. Recently, I have started to actually put my pins to use and am having fun trying out new crafts and recipes!! Thanks for sharing this, a new one for my board :)

    Hope you have a great weekend!
