To make this fall wreath you will need to have the following supplies: a 14 inch grapevine wreath base, 2 bushes of fall colored peonies (you could also use hydrangeas if you prefer),  hot glue gun, glue sticks, and wire cutters.

To begin, you will need to place your grapevine wreath on a flat surface or table and find the center of the top of the wreath. Cut your flower leaving about a 3 inch stem and place in the center of the top of the wreath base.

 

Next, you will cut a flower of a different color and place directly beside your first flower.

You will repeat this process, alternating your colored flowers all the way around the wreath.

After you have gone all the way around your wreath with your flowers, alternating colors, you will flip your wreath over and place your glue gun where each stem is coming out ot the base of the wreath, and apply a generous amount of glue to secure your stem.

After you have applied glue to each stem, you will use your wire cutters to cut any excess stems that are sticking out of the back of the wreath. You want to be sure to cut the stems off as close to the wreath base as possible to be sure the stems don’t scratch or damage your door.

When you have finished cutting all of your excess flower stems, flip your wreath back over and fluff and adjust each of your flowers to make sure they are placed evenly around the wreath.

Next, to add some fullness and dimension to your wreath, cut off the leaves that are leftover on the bush of flowers and glue along the outside (and you can also add a few on the inside if you would like) of the wreath base. Simply add a small drop of glue to the stem of the leaf and push into the grapevine base. You can add as few, or as many of the leaves as you would like. When you have finished this step, your wreath will be complete. Just hang it and enjoy all season long!
