Spring Into Summer with Tangerine

I redid my front door wreath this past week:

 I like the colors, but thought that the straw wreath was a little too "kitschy".
Also, my mom, who is a floral arranging goddess, suggested that the straw wreaths were a little outdated. She gave me the idea of tearing apart the grapevine wreath.

To make this wreath with grapevine, I cut away the "support" grapevine.

I started cable tying the larger flowers to the grapevine and then added in the medium sized flowers and the smaller flowers.

I like to make sure that the flowers are very 3D and pop off of the wreath. So, I twist and turn to get that to happen. I added a cable tie loop to the back of the wreath, and I cable tied some of the loose grapevines together.

It's a happy front door!

Have a great day - Nicole
