I have to admit to having craft ADDHD. And with this project I started out with one idea and as I gathered materials to finish it... I got sidetracked and inspired by material in eyeshot and created something totally different... this has never happened to me before... but boy am I glad that it did!
Here is a list of the materials that you will need to make a similar wreath...
- vine for making wreath, or an already made grapevine wreath
- wood frame the size of your wreath or slightly larger
- small glass bottles in different shapes and sizes
- thin wire for wrapping the bottles
- green moss - faux or dried
- faux berry sprig or flowers to place in bottles
- ribbon or chain for hanging your wreath
- optional - small metal tray, silver egg shaped beads
I began by wrapping the neck of the bottles with the wire and twisting the end tight. Then I wrapped the wire around the vine wreath and over the bottle a couple of times.
I spotted some of these faux moss rocks that I had bought at the dollar store in my stash of materials and thought I could incorporate some moss into the wreath. I simply peeled the moss cover off the styrofoam and cut into thin pieces.
I tucked it into the vine wreath in random spots and think it adds more interest. You could use dried moss. I also took apart a simple green berry wreath and added small branches to the bottles. I wanted it to look like buds ready to flower which is what Spring is all about... new life.
I found a frame that was almost the same size as the wreath and added it behind the wreath to make it more substantial and for another layer of interest. I love how the bottles look when the sunlight shines through them.
