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!

• Head over to Michaels, Joann or Hobby Lobby for the pieces of this project. The beard and shamrocks were found in-store.

• You can always cut out your own beard and your own shamrocks from cardstock allowing for better variation! Use cookie cutters for the shamrock templates if you decide to cut your own!

• The shamrocks are stacked on top of one another with pipe-cleaners in between to allow you to adhere the shamrocks to the door hanger and have all the shamrock seen. If you try and attach the shamrocks directly to the ruler, hat, beard, etc., most of the shamrock will be hidden by the attachment.

• This is a fast project, and yes, it is all done on the back of a ruler!
