Summer Lovin' Wreath Tutorial

I'm on a wreath making kick. 
I made my Spring Chevron Wreath last week and I already made one for summer as well. 
I was just too excited when I found everything to make it, I just couldn't wait! :) 


It is so simple to do and real fast too! 

Here's how to do it! 
Supplies:
-Grape vine wreath 
-Canvas flowers (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby but you can make them too.)
-Buttons
-Moss Ribbon or real moss
-Stickles
-Wired Ribbon


To start, I hot glued the buttons to the center of the flowers.

I wanted a little sparkle in my wreath, so I pulled out my stickles in coodinating colors to my buttons.

I added the stickles in a thick layer on the buttons. 
Let dry.

While the Stickles was drying, I pulled out my moss ribbon and cut stripes.
I then cut a little off the moss here and there so they weren't perfect rectancles.

I glued on the moss overlapping a little as I went for a little added texture.

I then glued the flowers onto the mossy area.

I cut a piece of the wired ribbon and wrapped the top of the wreath.

I then cut a long piece and inserted it behind the first piece I wrapped around the wreath.

I tied and fluffed a bow to my liking. 

And that's it! 
Told you it was fast! 

I really like how it came out and can't wait to hang it on my front door! 
I know it will look great!



Linking up to some of these parties.
