Cotton Stem Wreath

Cotton Stem Wreath

I needed a summer wreath for our front door and love all the cotton wreaths that I've been seeing lately. But they are fairly pricey, so I tried my hand at creating one on my own.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

:: Natural grapevine wreath

:: Two small bunches of faux ferns. I bought mine from a local shop that I love called Cocalico Creek. If you are local to Lancaster, PA you need to check them out! The store has a farmhouse feel and similar decor as Magnolia. But you can find similar ferns at craft stores.

:: Two bunches of cotton stems, also from Cocalico Creek, but you can find them at craft stores.

:: Green floral wire

DIRECTIONS

:: Cut the ferns apart with a wire cutter and place them inside the grapevine wreath, so that they are nicely spaced.

:: Place the cotton stems into the grapevine wreath, on top of the ferns.

:: Use floral Wire to secure the ferns and cotton stems in place.

I used some ribbon that I bought at Michael's to hang it. And there you have it! I don't have photos of it hanging on our front door, because honestly our entrance is a major work in progress. The photos are taken in our mudroom.
