I love lavender. The smell...the look...love it. It is all over in our yard, front and back. It was even the "flower" for our wedding. For months I had been eyeing this lavender wreath at Target, however I just couldn't justify spending almost $50 for something that is just going to hang on my front door. Instead, after a very long time of debating whether to get it or not, I decided I'll just make it.
So last weekend while Jake was away Charlie and I went to Michael's and bought all the supplies! We did it all for $8.50 plus 20% off with my awesome Michael's app!
8 inch grapevine wreath - $4.99 Head Pins - $1.99 Floral Wire - $1.49
STEP ONE: I went out to our front yard to pick some lavender. Unfortunately, right now, there was not a lot of lavender but the lavender leaves were massive...so I thought it would go well on the wreath also!
STEP TWO: I grabbed a small handful of lavender and leaves.
STEP FOUR: Keep repeating by adding more and more bunches on top of the last. Just be sure each time you cover up your floral wire!
And there you have it. In 20 mins I had my very own wreath! I thought I was going to put it outside on the front door, but I think I will enjoy it inside for a bit! Plus, I needed something to put on these hooks of my nice new furniture piece my parents got me for my birthday!
It was probably the easiest craft I have done. And I did it with a teething toddler too! Once all my lavender grows back I would LOVE to make a bigger one and maybe that one I will put on my front door!
