Orchid Wreath

It's about time I put a wreath on our door!

My poor, bare, front door needed a wreath! I like simple and elegant so I knew I wanted to go with one flower for the entire wreath. What flowers to choose? There were so many...magnolias, peonies, hydrangea...the choices were endless! I ended up choosing orchids. They are one of my favorite flowers and I loved the green color. You can make one too. It's a piece of cake and takes no time at all!

Here is what you need...
12" green ring- $5 at Michaels
2 stems of orchids- $10 each. You can use a 50% off Michaels coupon. Sign up for it next time you go there. They are doing away with the Sunday paper coupons.
Glue gun/glue sticks
Scissors

Cut all of the flowers off the stem.

Use your hot glue gun and start gluing!

I just glued them on the sides and front of the green ring so it would lay flat against the door. Plus if I would have covered the entire ring it would have cost me a small fortune!

All finished and now my door has a little color! And I love the color!



I would love to see your version! Maybe with your favorite flower or a ribbon to hang it with. The possibilities are endless!
