How to Make a Romantic Patriotic Grapevine Wreath
Start by setting the parameter of your design by using some greenery pieces and pushing them into your 14 inch wreath form.
Using your dark blue peony start placing the heads of the flower into your wreath. First dipping the stems into your hot glue pot before placing. You are going to place 3 sticking straight up and leaving them standing up. You can place two closer together on the top left side and one on the right side right in the middle.
Placing your delphinium beside the blue peony you placed be sure to dip them in hot glue before placing them in the wreath. These additions are going to be sticking pretty far out of the wreath base as well.
Now go back and add a few more pieces of delphinium to your wreath. Let your creative minds decide where. You can not place them in the wrong place.
Lavender will be what we add next to this romantic patriotic wreath. Placing them on the inside of the wreath form by the Delphinium you placed already.
Working with your red roses you can place a bud with a bloom and place them together in the top left of your wreath, right between the two blue peony you already have set.
Place your next two roses a little down and to the left working your way down the left side of the wreath. Making a pattern of blue peony and red roses. Beautiful!
Lastly still working with your roses and a bud with a bloom add them to the bottom right side with the blue peony that is on the left bottom side of the wreath.
Adding in more blue peony dipping the stem in the hot glue pot and place it on the inside of the wreath form on the top left.
With your already made bow cable tie your bow on the left side a little below the middle section.
To add the finishing touches to your wreath you will go back and fill in the bare spots with some greenery, white filler flowers and lavender pieces. Be sure to focus on the bow and add some pieces right behind the bow to help make it look fuller in that area.
Let us not stop there. Measure out a bit of ribbon and twirl the ends up towards each other. Putting a cable tie toward the top and thread it in the top of the wreath and cinch it tight. This will add a few additions to your wreath but are super simple.
