What to Do With Extra Wreath Making Supplies
This wreath project is a bit more freestyle than normal. You may not have a wreath turn out exactly like mine because your extra wreath making supplies are likely different from mine. However, this video should give you some good ideas about what to do and help you think outside of the box a bit.
What To Do With Extra Wreath Making Supplies
- Using the stem cutter or bolt cutters, trim and fluff the ficus stems. Secure using the hot glue gun.
- Trim and add floral stems. Secure using the hot glue gun. Layer the different floral stems.
- Get your EZ Bow Maker and ribbon.
- With your 2.5" ribbon, measure a 12" tail and a (3) 6" loop on each side. Then do 2 loops slightly smaller, and then 1 loop slightly smaller. Cut tail.
- Make a center loop and add to the bow. Cut a ribbon tail and add to the back of the bow.
- Twist 2 pipe cleaners and then wrap around the center of the bow. Twist nice and tight.
- Add bow in the center of the greenery and florals. Fluff out bow and trim ends at an angle. Curl tails.
- Secure bow by adding a little bit of glue behind the bow.
- Trim and add some greenery stems to add texture to the wreath.
- Add the butterfly attachment. Secure using the hot glue gun. Use floral wire to secure the top of the butterfly to the grapevine base. Trim floral wire and tuck the excess back into the grapevine base.
- Fluff out the mix of greenery and florals for a fuller look.
As you can see, by following basic wreath-making principles you can turn your leftover supplies into a beautiful masterpiece. Have fun with it!
