If you follow my blog you know by now that I am a cool colors girl. I don’t need any reds or oranges in my life. Give me blues and greens and I’ll be happy forever.
Last year I made a beautiful wreath for my front door. But that was when my door was red. And when my green and red wreath looked bangin’ good.
This year, with my fancy teal doors, the red and green just wasn’t so hot. So In the name of cool colors and my love of snow, I wanted to create a snowy wreath.
Allie and I (I told you we did a million things this weekend!) got all of the supplies at Michaels, and she created this AMAZING wreath while I made my centerpiece and a wreath I’ve yet to share.
To make this wreath, I bought a grapevine form and pretty much any and all of the snowy white floral stuff Michaels had in stock.
Allie spent half of her time cutting each branch apart from one another before she started to systematically arrange them on the wreath. For the branches, she simply stuck them into the wreath far enough so they wouldn’t fall out.
On some spots, she added hot glue. With the pearls, she glued them all in after sticking them where she wanted them.
She did this wreath layer by layer, adding small amounts as she went so it was evenly spaced around the form.
And basically she should be a professional wreath maker because it turned out to be gorgeous! You can really see all of the detail in the photo above. Some branches are covered in snow, others are covered in clear crystals. It is magnificent and I love the way it pops on my teal door. Buh-bye red, hello snowy white 🙂
This is one happy girl.
