Know what I love more than making beautiful things?
Making beautiful things for other people.
My inspiration came from my friend, Dara, of Teach. Craft. Love. who makes beautiful wreaths like these:
Aren't those awesome?! I couldn't help but copy her idea!
Since I've been on spring break this past week, I've actually been able to make a couple wreaths (I'll post one more later this week), do a little sewing, and visit friends and family. I just love being a teacher!
I made the Hydrangea Wreath for my Granny.
I didn't do a tutorial on this one because it's crazy easy. You can do this with any kind of florals. Always wait to buy them when they are 50 % off though.
I simply took off the long stems on the hydrangeas and wired the blooms onto the grapevine wreath. To get all the little sprigs, I take a big sprig apart (as you can see in the picture below) and glue them all around.
I placed them all around the wreath and hot glued them down inside the branches. I held the sprigs down against the branches with one of the hydrangea stems I'd removed. Then I hot glued the letter on.
The colors are so sweet. I'm kinda lovin that peachy color for spring!
