I wanted to freshen up my front door for spring, but all of the wreaths I had my eye on were a little out of budget. I wanted something simple and organic in style. It was only on a whim while at a craft store that this grapevine wreath caught my eye. I quickly found a roll of faux moss and a few very realistic faux succulents, bringing the total of this project to less than $12!
- Grapevine wreath: $4.99
- Faux succulent stem: $3.99
- Faux moss roll: $2.99
It helps that I already had some hot glue and wire cutters at home, but those weren't even really necessary for this project.
- Grapevine wreath
- faux moss roll
- faux succulents with wire stems
- hot glue gun
- wire cutters
The first step is to secure the faux moss to the back of the wreath. You can either tie it to a stem, or add a dot of hot glue and attach it.
The next step is to wrap the faux moss all the way around the width of the wreath until you have gone all the way around. Tie off again to attach end of moss roll to wreath, or hot glue the end to the back of the wreath.
This particular moss had thin tendrils hanging off it, which I wrapped around other twigs around the wreath and tied off:
Next, it's time to attach the succulents.
There are two ways to do this:
1. Cut wire stems off the succulents and hot glue the succulents bases to the front of the wreath
2. Leave the stems on; stick the stems through the front of the wreath and bend them to hold their places. Hot glue the base of the succulent to secure if necessary.
You can add as many or as few succulents as you'd like! I didn't want my wreath to be overstated, so I stuck to just three succulents.
After all glue is cooled, your wreath is ready for hanging!
