Hi friend’s!!! Welcome to my April DIY challenge! I’m so excited ,yay!! because it’s a wreath!!
You have most likely arrived here from CD Living and what a beautiful wreath she has created!
Who else is in love with wreaths?
When our host Terrie from Decorate and more with Tip presented the monthly challenge (decorate a grapevine wreath and do anything you like with it) there was just no way I was backing out of this challenge,. Only thing was , I was unable to find a grapevine wreath in our shops so I had made my own !!
As usual, I’ve teamed up with some blogging buddies so don’t forget to check out all the other participants at the end of the post 😊
Before I go any further , if you haven’t checked out Terrie’s blog , you need to go follow her. I can’t express how much I adore this lady , she is amazing at everything she does ( no joking here) I can truly guarantee that you will find something that you will love and can create from her blog… You can find her here >>>>> http://www.decorateandmorewithtip.com
I’m a little OTT when it comes to wreaths . my house is full of them and peeps I mean FULL of them! Wether it’s a proper wreath or a picture with a wreath on it , I’m either gonna buy it or make it 😀
Ok on with the challenge !! After starting the project, I did discover that spotlight stores did stock the grapevine wreath but it was $20.00 and I’m sorry I’m not paying that for a wreath that has nothing on it , I just refuse!! So I decided to carry on with my own hand made one! You can check out the full details on how I actually make my wreaths in the link here How to make a wreath from scratch >>
Ive been making my wreaths out of grapevine fencing panels , they usually retail over here for $60-$70 or more but I picked up two for $6.00 at a garage sale years ago and at the time I had no idea what the hec I was buying them for. Most likely I bought them for fencing privacy in our last property. Then I found another alternative for them, yes, wreath making !!! You can see from the photo I was coming to the end of the fencing panel , so I hadn’t got much to work with as the end was getting thin and scrawny but how and ever I made it work…
When I started making this wreath , the stay inside and don’t go out unless you really need to policy had hit us. I always have plenty of faux flowers on hand so used some of what I had in Stock !! I always have plenty of greenery etc because I make a lot of wreaths and florals etc . Here are the florals I used.
Ok, so let’s get moving on!
So guys below is the finished project!! Usually I make a more subtle wreath but this time I wanted to go larger than normal.. I wanted this wreath to be full of life and sprig time. I wanted it to represent a woodland feel and what spring would look like in the middle of a woodland with the little nests hidden away in a cluster of beauty and sunshine!!
The Theme! My favourite bird is a Robin red breast, have you ever seen how they build their nests? Well one year my neighbour had a flower planter on her front window ledge, it was just beautiful. In the very center of the clusters of blooms was a little robins nest with its little eggs!! A sight I’ll never forget!! In this challenge I wanted to replicate that in my wreath and I think I simply did this here!!
Take a look at Patina and paint below how elegant is that wreath?
So guys as usually , make sure and check all the links below!

Teresa we thought a like, we made a wreath how fun?! I love your wreath all dressed up for spring. Love the bird nests. Such a great idea. Thanks for joining me in on this challenge. It is always a pleasure working with you. Happy Spring!
Kudos to you, Teresa for making your own grapevine wreath! It definitely looks better than the store bought! I wish now I’d thought to do that cause I’m all about saving $! I LOVE the florals you chose and the adoranble nests and colored eggs are the perfect additions! Great job!

All the florals are from around my home!! I gave lots that I just buy when I’m out .. I’ll never run out lol!!
