Saw this on Pinterest.
I know, I know. You did too.
That's probably why I saw it. Because I was re-pinning your pin.
It's what I do best.
I wanted to do a wreath but my Wal-Mart didn't have just plain, do-it-yourself grapevine wreaths.
(You can get them at Hobby Lobby and JoAnn for really cheap though.)
I was gonna go get a wreath later, but then I saw this hanging grapevine basket thingy in our garage and thought it would work just fine. It's a hanging door basket for holding flowers and such, and I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby a couple years ago. So it's not a wreath, but it'll do.
i love the clear, crisp quality of a camera phone picture, don't you?
The wooden letter is also from Hobby Lobby. It's hot glued to my basket.
I painted it with acrylic paint (lime green). I used my finger to paint it.
Then I used the end of a foam brush (the wooden end, not the brush end) to 'dot' the white circles.
EVERYTHING ELSE on and inside the basket is from WalMart.
Go to the fake florals aisle.
Look for the massive array of orange and yellow fake florals.
Then look on the bottom shelf.
There you will find small floral twiglets between $.84 - $.96 cents each.
Get the ones you like.
I chose a big orange flower, a bunch of yellow flowers,
some orange berry twigs and some grass-looking twigs.
Then go to ribbon.
Find you some Halloween-looking ribbon.
Buy the whole roll. It's $2.00 a roll.
When you get home, arrange your flowers how you want them in your basket
(or if you're doing a wreath, use hot glue to fix your flowers to your wreath.)
Get your ribbon, cut off a big long strip. Like, as long as you can.
Tie it around your basket handle or around your wreath in a simple bow, like you'd tie your shoe.
Fix it so that your 'loops' in your bow are a decent, normal size.
Then take your STILL-VERY-LONG ribbon ends, and tie another bow. And another.
As many as you can. And feel free to use hot glue at any point during this process.
When you're done with the first roll of ribbon, move on to the second roll.
Tie and glue and wrap and tie again.
Just keep making loops and bows until it looks somewhat decent.
I'm no good at bows.
I just wing it until it looks good.
But you don't wanna see mine up close.
My favorite time of year!
