It’s fun to make your own wreath. One year I even made a large grape vine wreath. I soaked the grape vines in the shallows of a Texas lake and wound them to make the wreath. I find out later there was a prehistoric-like fish in this like called an Alligator Gar that lived in the shallows where I was standing so proudly with my wreath. Big mistake. If you don’t know what an Alligator Gar is you might want to check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15SKmGwB68s Haha. Yikes!

For this wreath you will use silk hydrangeas in fall colors. Weave the long flexible stems of the silk flowers into the grape vines, wire them to the woody vines, and in some places secure them with a hot glue gun. The flowers and branches may look right on the table, but when it’s hung, the branches droop if not secured. I also used pine cones and Magnolia seed pods that I found on dog walks with my Golden Retriever, Elle. The little metallic copper colored and white pumpkins I got at Target.
