Easy crafts are my go-to and if I can save money, even better. When I was putting together the Spring Vignette on the buffet in our dining area I decided to make a garland wreath.
So using only a few supplies, I merged two very different pieces into a beautiful wreath for Spring (or even Easter).
When I decided to make a garland wreath, I headed off to the craft store. I grabbed a cart at the local Hobby Lobby and started strolling through the store. In other words, I was looking for some inspiration.
However, I did come with a few ideas in hand. I printed off a few pictures from Pinterest.
One was a simple greenery wreath. It had a beautiful delicacy to it though. Consequently, that’s what I was aiming for.
After a lot of perusing, I knew fern stems or swags weren’t going to work. Plus, I really wanted to keep this simple. But then I stumbled upon a 6-foot flowering garland (that’s what the tag called it anyway).
Friends, I got all the feels on this garland. The greenery was a beautiful combination of yellow, green sprigs. It certainly made me think of spring. Therefore, it was perfect and went right into my cart. Woop Woop.
Did I mention it was on sale too? Fist bump.
Can you make a wreath out of Garland?
Making a wreath of garland is 100% doable. It’s easier than you think and will usually save you a significant amount of money. In short, make a wreath out of garland (wink wink).
I believe the wreath was around $4.99 and the garland less than $10 (the original price is $15.99). So, if you can score the supplies on sale, this wreath comes in at less than $15.
Honestly, the versatility of this garland wreath makes it a favorite of mine. Technically it could be used for spring, easter, or even summer. Don’t you agree?
2. Place the grapevine wreath on your workspace and decide where you want to start attaching the garland to the grapevine wreath.
3. Lay the garland on top of the grapevine wreath. Attach one end of the garland to the wreath using a strand of floral wire. String the wire through some of the grapevines and up and around the garland. Thereafter, be sure to twist tightly and trim the wires using the wire cutters.
4. Continue this step every 3 to 4 inches until the entire wreath is covered and the garland is snugly attached. Snip off the extra garland, if applicable. I had several extra inches left using a 6-foot garland.
And that’s it. After that, you’ll fluff, and if necessary, tie some twine to the top/back for hanging.
Now that I’m editing these pictures, I noticed that the wreath on the shutter looks like an “R.” Do you see it?
Here’s a visual aid. Haha. Goodness gracious, I’m certainly having a good chuckle.
I know. I digress. Well, I guess we’ll say the R unconsciously represents the Rowes.

Another idea for Easter is to wire on a small nest with a few faux bird eggs. Darling, right?
Hugs and Blessings!
