I'll start by letting you know all the materials needed for the project, and the price of each as well. Most of the products I purchased came from one stop at Michael's
Grapevine Wreath--On Clearance for $2.50
Assortment of Flowers --$6.55 for 4 bundles (These were only going to be $3 but I couldn't do without the Cat-Tails)
Wooden Numbers--Only $2.42 for all 3!
Outdoor Acrylic Paint--.69
Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks--Since I just began crafting, I don't consider these to be part of the project cost because I'll be able to use them on other projects.
White Primer--I will also be able to use this several more times, so the cost of it was pretty cheap.
***Total Cost : $12.21***First:
I cut the assortment of flowers apart and began placing them on my Grapevine Wreath. I just stuffed them between the crevices in the vine, and with the thickness of the stems they all seamed to hold pretty well.
I took a break to prime the numbers, that way they could be drying while I was working with the wreath. I laid a bag down and did it inside under our vent in the kitchen. -- Bad, Bad idea. I don't recommend doing this. You would think the fan/vent would help with fumes...not so much.. ;) Anyways.., I just applied 1 coat of primer to front and back.
I finished plugging all my flowers into the wreath. I just kept placing them until I got the fullness I wanted.
I painted the wooden numbers an Antique White. I applied 2 Coats to front and back.
I waited for the paint to dry and then hot glued the Numbers to my wreath! I decided that I want to add a Plaid Print Ribbon Bow to the top corner, but haven't been anywhere to get what I want yet, until then, This'll Do!
So there you have it! Not exactly rocket science, but I'm proud of myself!! In 5 steps, less than $15, and 1 short night, we now have a nice, warm wreath welcoming our guests! Try it out! :)
