A grapevine wreath is perfect for use on a front door, above a fireplace or as a decorative accent throughout your home.  A wreath makes a great housewarming gift too!

Materials
One – Desert Foam® half-sphere or sphere
Design It® Floral Wire
Design It® Wire Cutter
One – Grapevine wreath*
Permanent flowers and foliage
Grape Clusters
Butterflies
Ribbon
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
Scissors

Helpful Hints
-Flower accents on a single side of a wreath help amplify the texture of the grapevine.
-You can also use a wreath of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam or natural straw*

Instructions
1. Select half sphere of dry foam or cut a dry foam sphere in half.  Place two wires completely through half sphere, about 1/2 inch from flat back of sphere.  Keep wires one to two inches apart.  Wrap wires around wreath and tie securely.
HINT: Use wired foam instead of hot gluing flowers directly to the wreath–then you can change the arrangement with the seasons.

2.  Cut permanent foliage stems and place into foam. Curve stems to match the curve of the wreath. Leave some areas of the wreath exposed for a more dramatic design.
HINT: Foliage bushes are a great value. Simply trim the stems away from the main stem. Use individual stems in your flower design.

3.  Secure focal flowers with hot glue for added security. Use wire to attach grape clusters to wreath.
HINT:  For added realism, wire grapes once at the top and mid-section of the bunch. Attach grapes to the lower portion of the wreath so they hang naturally, as if on the vine.

4. Continue adding focal, line and filler flowers, securing them in place using hot glue. Select coordinating ribbon and cut into one to two foot lengths and place into your wreath using the ribbon setting technique.
HINT:  Add butterflies with hot glue to create a sense of whimsy. Personalize your wreath with birds, nests or other favorite items!
