You might remember my whimsical little flower pot man with his creeping jenny hair! So it should come as no surprise that I decided to make him a wreath to match!
I actually found the inspiration for the wreath at Bees Knees Bungalow. Jeanne’s wonderful photo of a wreath she spotted has been making the rounds at Pinterest! There is no tutorial, so I made up my own version. Here’s what you’ll need: a grapevine wreath, twine, scissors, Spanish moss, some floral foam, an assortment of faux flowers and greenery and terra cotta flower pots in assorted sizes.
I got mine at Michaels (with a coupon for 20% off my entire purchase…yaaay!) I bought ten 1 ½ inch pots, five 2 ½ inch and five 3 inch pots.
I started with the five largest pots and spaced them around the wreath, securing them with twine tied tightly on the back with a double knot. I suppose you could use wire, but I like the look of twine.
Then I filled in with the next size and then finally with the smallest pots. I tried really hard not to be too symmetrical…not easy for me! lol
Next, I carefully flipped it over and cut all the ties on the back to a length that would remain secure but would not show from the front.
Then I cut a piece of the floral foam and fitted it into the five largest pots. This will hold the faux flowers in place.
I filled in the pots with the flowers and added some greenery and Spanish moss. The flowers I chose are faux Queen Anne’s lace in shades of purple. I like the contrast of the purple with the grey-green plants and the grey Spanish moss.
And finally...taaa daaa! I suppose you could use real plants, but they wouldn’t last very long on my sunny front porch. And just a note…it’s heavy, so be sure you hang it securely.
Now Baby Kitty wants to know when I am going to make a flower pot kitty! Hmmm…I guess I’ll be searching Pinterest for my next inspiration!
chalkboard flower pots! They make a great gift since you can add the greeting that suits the occasion. I love this idea for hostess or end-of-the-year teacher gifts...or maybe just a sweet little reminder to someone that they are special!
