Welcoming Wisteria Vine for Spring
I have a deep covered porch, so I have done this on my front door, but this is something you can do on a door inside your home, too. If you are hosting a bridal shower, what a lovely way to greet guests with this life-like wisteria vine. I really wanted to do something as challenging as my fall porch, and this is what I came up with!

Begin with four purchased branches that have wire in them so you can bend them the way you want your vine to “grow”.
I began with one branch and secured it with a pair of Command hooks.
The next step is to add a second branch that goes up the side of your door. This branch meets the first branch, actually covering part of the stem. I have put red circles around all of the locations of the Command hooks. You will want to add one more branch beneath this one down toward your pot where you will add a “trunk” to your vine.
On the sides I used a pair of hooks together to secure the branches where I wanted. Just attach them in opposite directions. That wedges them in securely.
Cut the individual blooms from the bushes of wisteria. Wherever possible, bend the wire of the bloom into a “V” to fold it over a piece of the branch and then glue it. This will make it more secure. I have had a lot of wind and none of my blooms have come off.
Use a hot glue gun to attach the the blooms along the branches wherever you want. I used an extension cord for my glue gun and got up on a step ladder to add the blooms with the branches in place.
The fourth piece of branch will go opposite of the first two to give your wisteria some balance.
Your guests and neighbors will be delighted with this lovely display. If you should decide to build this indoors, it would make a beautiful backdrop for photos.
