I started my wreath with a hanging basket style silk geranium bush.
I fluffed up my geranium bush and attached the long pieces around the wreath with floral wire.
If the existing flower is not in the "right place" on the wreath, I just "serpentine" it rather than clip it off.
I did clip a couple of the long ones to fill in on the right side of the wreath.
I added three tulips to give my wreath a spring feel.
When spring is over, I can take them out and replace them with summer flowers.....I will do the same thing this fall. So, this wreath will last me thru three seasons.
I like to use at least three sizes of blooms to add texture to my wreath......so, I have the geraniums, the tulips, and these small filler flowers and of course a couple of roses!
I could finish my wreath up now with a pretty pink bow.....but you know me better than that! More is better...lol
I wanted to add ribbon streamers to the lower half of my wreath.
His mom had wrapped each bolt with box tape to hold them together and when I took it off there was a sticky residue left behind.
I love to watch the streamers wave in the gentle breeze when I sit on the porch......
You will want to do this project outside as it gets pretty messy when you weave the ribbons thru your grapevine wreath!
I took the photo on the left two days ago...........................the right one is from today
You can see that the ornamental pears are in full bloom today!
