1 or 2 yards of sheer ribbon
Grapevine Wedding Wrath: Directions
- Cut all the stems of laurel, baby’s breath, hydrangea, and peony rose to approximately 12 centimeters long or to the length you want.
- Secure the ivy garland to the front of the grapevine wreath form with floral wires.
- Now, making the ivy garland as the base, set up the flowers and plants one after one and secure with floral wire or hot glue as needed. However, it’s wise to use floral wire if you are using fresh flowers and plants. You can follow a specific pattern while attaching the stems or mix them up to create an interesting look. Keep attaching them until the entire wreath is covered.
- Now, you can attach another layer of stems just beside the first one if the wreath does not look full or the wreath form is visible.
- Make two to three bows with the sheer ribbon and glue them to the lower part of the wreath form.
