I was commissioned to create a wreath for a local salon.
He requested that I use neutral tones, so here's what I came up with!
I went to this awesome place that has so much fun stuff to decorate with,
it's called Grenon's Trading Company in Bedford, NH. Their permanent botanicals
are nothing like you'd find at Michael's, I decided to get all my supplies here!
Some wonderful wheat!
Not sure what this is, but I had to have it!
A little bit of Babies Breath.
Some shrooms and small pods, I love working with this stuff!
I started with an 18" grapevine wreath.
I usually stick a piece in, stand back, and see how it
looks from a distance, then glue into place, using a hot glue gun.
It's starting to have a nice flow, but still so much more to add,
and it always takes more than you think.
I will be adding a burlap ribbon to the left hand side,
that's why it's not as full as the other side. I don't know about you,
but I have really been into burlap lately!
Still not looking quite right. The bow is too skimpy,
so I'll add a few more loops, but a different size.
So... what do you think?
Are you thinking you might need a new wreath for your front door this spring?
Linky parties I will be joining:
