Building a Custom Wreath

One of my customers requested that I make him a new wreath for his front door!
I don't get many custom orders, but when I do.... I love it!

I started with a grapevine wreath, that was already covered in greenery.

I start by adding my biggest pieces... 
the fruit and the orchids, this will be the focal point.

Little by little...

piece by piece...

she's getting there...

His house color is a cream and his door barn red, 
I want this wreath to pop and compliment the front of the house!

I love using these vines to wrap around, it gives some nice texture and depth.

Using a lot of different flowers, but in the 
same color combination adds to the texture as well.

A lot of different greenery helps add interest too.


I would love to have this on my front door!
(If only I could afford it!)
