I love flowers in the summer and spend a ridiculous amount of money on them. Watering them can be a chore, but most of the time I find it relaxing and therapeutic! I have always admired those living flower wreaths that are a full ring of flowers. My concern is that they would become too heavy on my glass front door especially after watering it. So, I came up with this potted tin Living Flower Wreath! I am happy to say I just love it and it is fairly light weight.
Grapevine Wreath | Tin Pot or container | Drill | Ribbon | Potting Soil | Flowers
First, drill a few holes in the bottom of the tin and two on the top of both sides. I drilled the holes on the sides off center so that I could support the front of the tin with the ribbon when attached.
Add the potting soil and plant the flowers.
I won’t lie…attaching the tin to the wreath was a little tricky by myself. If you have someone around to hold the tin in place, while you tie the ribbon, it will be much easier! First, feed the ribbon through the holes. Use a toothpick to help push the ribbon through if you are having trouble with this. Then position the tin so the holes on the side are furthest away from the wreath – this will help to add stability once attached. Have a friend hold the tin in place while you feed the ribbon around the back and through the grapevine wreath. Tie in a bow.
WATERING TIP: I remove the wreath from the door to water the flowers. My door frame is made of wood and I don’t want the water to be draining and marking the door. So I recommend leaning the wreath against the house or on a step and gently water – don’t over water. Once any extra water has drained…hang and enjoy!
Hope your day is creative!
