SPRING GRAPEVINE WREATH SUPPLIES
For this wreath I used things that I had on hand. I am always re-using wreaths and wreath forms from year to year. This was no different.
- GRAPEVINE WREATH
- AIR DRY CLAY
- SILICON BUNNY MOLD
- GLUE GUN
- SPRAY ADHESIVE
- LEAF RIBBON / GARLAND
- PUSSY WILLOW BRANCHES
- OPTIONAL (FAUX FLOWERS – EASTER EGGS)
MAKING YOUR SPRING WREATH
To begin, I created these little bunnies in a silicon mold I found on Etsy. I used the terracotta DAS air dry clay for a different look than my normal white clay.
Next I created carrots by rolling clay, tapering it and then adding some lines across it with a knife. You can let your clay dry overnight or put it in the oven for 45 minutes at 200 degrees.
This is not mentioned on the package so you may want to wait the 24 hours, I am just impatient and it’s worked for me.
I laid out my moss along the bottom of the wreath to see how it looked. Then I laid out the pussy willow branches (faux and real) on the wreath.
After I decided how I wanted it, using spray adhesive, I attached the moss to the bottom half of the wreath.
I used wire to attach my pussy willow to the wreath and then added a little more moss to cover the bottoms of the branches.
Next using a glue gun I added the bunnies and carrots onto the wreath. You could certainly add faux eggs or any other type of spring or easter decor to the bottom but we all know I am addicted to clay and bunnies.
I added a small piece of leave ribbon or garland to the tops of the carrots. It’s a little difficult to see against the most but it’s there. I had this leftover from a previous craft.
After the bunnies and carrots were added. I painted them with a coat of gloss to make them shine.
You can see how it looks while the gloss is still wet on the carrots and bunnies.
I then added a bunny ribbon to the top, added a metal ring I had and then glued the ribbon together with hot glue. Now I could use the ring to hang the wreath.
HANGING YOUR WREATH
This actually looks great on my front door because of the color and it was there for a bit but….I love the look of it on this vintage window so it’s going to spend some time there too.
The terracotta clay coordinates well with the door don’t you think? It would also be a good backdrop for my Easter table.
On the door I have a suction cup wreath holder and the ring I added to the ribbon allows it to hang evenly.
It’s definitely time to starting transitioning to spring, whether it feels like it outside or not. I did plant some pansies in pots on the porch to give a little color in addition to my daffodils in the garden. Everything else is still brown.
