SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
  • Grapevine Wreath with Flocking, 18"
  • 3 Farm Magnolia Clips
  • Farm Magnolia with Pinecone Bush
  • Farm Cotton Pinecone Magnolia Bush
  • Farm Ivory Berry Magnolia Leaf Bush
  • Hot Glue Gun & glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Panacea
  • Decorative Accents
  • Wire Cutters
  • 18" Wire
  • Tape
  • Ruler

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Take three small cuts of tape and place on the top of the wreath to divide the wreath into thirds. The spacing between these tape marks should be approximately 12" (see photo). Remove one piece of tape. The one third of the wreath between the tape tabs will remain undecorated.
  2. Take the three Magnolia clips and secure to the solid parts of the wreath (see photo). These will tip slightly with the addition of the leaves.
  3. Take one each of the Bush picks and use the wire cutters to cut all of the stems apart leaving the longest stem possible on each part (see photo). The stems may be trimmed if necessary when inserting into the wreath.
  4. Lay all the white picks and pinecone picks onto the wreath clustering around the large Magnolia flowers (see photo). Leave small spaces between the picks to insert leaves. Hot glue the stems only and insert into the wreath. Keep these picks vertical to the wreath so that they are not buried under the leaves that will be applied next. Use the scissors point to locate the space while removing the stem to apply the glue (see photo).
  5. Find all the smaller leaves. Apply with hot glue on the stems and center vein only and locate in an overlapping pattern pointing toward the tape marks (see photo).
  6. Continue applying larger leaves. Lay leaves first on the inside and outside edges of the wreath. Overlap and change directions of the leaves. Gently tip the flower petals, pinecones and other picks to insert leaves in between (see photo). Lay leaves with the good side up gluing only the stem and the center veins. Use all the leaves to cover the grapevine wreath.
  7. Locate the center of the top of the wreath, flip the wreath gently onto the face keeping the location of the center of the top. Mark this with a tab of tape. Fold the wire piece in half to locate the center. Place this folded point at the center of the top of the wreath. Find spots approximately º the way down the wreath on both sides where there is a thick part of the wood vine. Loop the ends of the wire through and twist to secure on either side. When attaching the second side make sure that there is enough slack so all of the wire will be located behind the wreath.

JOANN Hacks:
  • Cover the work surface to protect from drips of hot glue.
  • Scissors or a craft stick may be helpful to press the glued stems into the wreath.
