Make a Lavender Wreath

A wreath of lavender is a wonderful way to greet guests or just to greet yourself when you come home. This one actually has faux lavender and faux heather combined to give it a woodsy look.

It is time for our monthly craft blog hop! This month I am joining twelve other bloggers with my own DIY project. Make sure you take a moment to explore what everyone has been up to this month! This is one creative bunch!

Begin with a 20″ grapevine wreath.

I selected several bunches of faux lavender and heather from Michaels.

Bend the stems of the bushes apart to get ready to cut them with wire cutters.

Cut each individual stem apart as shown above.

Take each individual stem and bend it so it is shaped like the wreath form.

This is the easy way you can build the entire wreath! All you need to do is stick the stem in between the grapevines. Stick it in so it is secure. If you cannot get a stem to be secure, you can use a short piece of a pipe cleaner wrapped around the stem and a piece of the grapevine to secure it. Another alternative is to use some hot glue to secure it.

Continue to add your stems all around your wreath as shown above.

The beauty of creating something like this yourself is that you get to customize it however you want. I was thinking that this looked beautiful with all white.

I decided it looked so nice, I needed to take a photo of it on the front door! But…it was time to continue working on the original concept!

Add the lavender the same way you added the white, working all the way around the wreath. That is all you need to do to make this simple and elegant wreath. You can use this same technique for any faux florals with stiff stems using a grapevine wreath as your wreath form. Have fun and get creative using the blooms and colors you choose, or use lavender like I did!

  1. Such a pretty wreath Chloe! I love your all white version too! The fact that the individual stems aren’t glued and can be reworked and used in a future project is a plus too. Happy to be hopping with you again ♥

  2. I am always inspired by your wonderful creations, Chloe! You have a special creative knack for making the prettiest door wreaths! And I love this one! It makes me believe I’m actually smelling the lavender fragrances just by looking at it! How awesome is that!

  3. It looks so pretty on your blue door. I love the lavender. You are such a wreath pro. Thanks for being in the hop. Can’t wait to see the door in person!

  4. Chloe, your lavender wreath is so lovely! I love that you mixed in the white blooms. I saw white lavender seeds for the first time recently and would love to plant some! Happy spring and Easter to you! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  5. Beautiful Chloe, the lavender is so pretty! I love to use grapevine wreaths so you can easily tuck in the stems without having to use wire or glue. A breath of Spring right on your door!

  6. Love Love Love this Chloe, and I have always wanted something like this for my home. Maybe we should make something like this when I come to visit… and I hope it would fit in my suitcase! Thanks for sharing and wonderful crafting with you friend.

  7. Chloe, one of my favorite wreath forms is the grapevine wreath – probably because items can be tucked in. You created a lovely spring wreath with yours two shades of lavender (another fav of mine). I like them both, and it’s hard to have a favorite.
    Happy Spring!

  8. Gorgeous wreath, Chloe! I love that you don’t need to use hot glue. The white version is lovely, too. Lavender is so perfect for both spring and summer decorating. It was fun to craft with you, my friend!

    1. Thanks so much Rebecca, I love to be able to repurpose both my wreath and my florals again later, so this way, I can, and they seem to hold on so well as long as I wedge them in tightly!

  9. Another pretty wreath Chloe and so much cheaper to make than purchase from Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Plus the added bonus of picking your own colors and flowers. Then to be able to remove the flowers for other uses is a win-win situation. But you already knew that my friend.
    Thanks for your inspiration.
    Hugs

  10. Your wreath is so pretty, Chloe. I love lavender and this one will last all through spring to brighten any door. And it’s so easy to make. Happy Speing and Happy Easter, my friend.

  11. Love both the white and lavender styles. WAs there a list of how many pieces of each that you used on this, or did I just miss it? How much did you have to buy each of the white and lavender? What size was the wreath form? Absolutely love both, thanks.

    1. The wreath was a 20″ wreath form. I did not list how many pieces I found, as that would vary depending upon what faux lavender you may find to purchase. I cut all of the bushes I got apart into separate pieces.
