• Leave a big area clear for your words and paint a small object onto the stone that matches your saying. For instance a small button for “cute as a button”. A small bug for “cute as a bug’s ear”, a daisy for “fresh as a daisy”, etc. The object is in place of the last word of the saying. You can trace an outline of the small object, or just draw it freehand.
• Once the paint for your small themed object dries, write on your words with a contrasting color to your stone base. You can use a paint pen or a fine tiped pain brush and acrylic paint. These stones were painted black, so I used white to write the words.
Allow the word-paint time to dry completely.

Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath DIY

grapevine wreath with dried lavender


Encourage peace and relaxation in your home by making and using this scented lavender wreath. Easy to make, this simple lavender grapevine wreath comes together in about 15 minutes.

Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath DIY

Set yourself up for summertime bliss by making this scented lavender wreath! This wreath may be made with imitation flowers, but using real lavender essential oil will make this wreath appear much more realistic, and will leave your home smelling great! Lavender oil is said to have soothing, relaxing properties which we could all use a little more of.

Although humans love the smell of lavender, bugs and insects do not like lavender oil. That makes this a wonderful wreath to use around doorways to discourage mosquitos and other pests from traveling into your house.

Notes:

• This is a 15 minute craft. It does not get much more simple than this!

• This wreath was made using floral lavender as opposed to dried lavender. You certainly can use dried lavender, but remember that doors open and close so that dried lavender will shed and drop of the spike.

• No ribbon is used in this craft. If you would like to add ribbon, consider a burlap, lavender, or purple 1½” = 2″ ribbon wrapped around the wreath. You can add a matching bow if you like!

• Remember that all craft projects are just a starting point. Add your own embellishments to make the DIY craft yours!
