Autumn Wreath

On the weekend I took some grape prunings, and made a few wreaths. I filled them with drying hydrangea flowers.


A brief, vague, how-to. I'm sure there are lots of more detailed instructions out there. Let me know if you have any questions!

I took the fresh prunings and cut all the leaves off. I found the dark, thin wood the most supple, the green wood broke more easily.

Don't worry about getting it too circular at first, that will come as you add more layers. Keep weaving through the prunings, filling up the skinny spots.


Don't worry too much about the sticky out bits at first either, you can clip them when everything is holding in place.





Fill it up with whatever you like- when you get sick of it, pull all the flowers out and start again!

If you make a wreath, I'd love to see it. Enjoy!
