Woman's World - - Borrowed from the Blogs - Armed with a few craft sup­plies, you can make this wreath in about 30 min­utes! — Yvonne Pratt of Stone­gable­blog.com

Fresh-picked ap­ples and farm­stand sun­flow­ers in­spired Yvonne Pratt at Stone­gable­blog.com to cre­ate this wreath! “I just re­cy­cled an old twig wreath by adding faux fruit, flow­ers and an ini­tial with lots of hot glue— easy-peasy!” WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

❑ 2 iden­ti­cal grapevine wreaths, each about 2/3 the width of your front door (Yvonne rec­om­mends dou­bling the wreaths to get a fuller de­signer ef­fect.) ❑ Flo­ral wire (Yvonne used brown-pa­per cov­ered wire to blend with the twig wreath base.)

❑ Wired burlap rib­bon (like striped wired rib­bon 2 1/2"-wide from Paper­mart.com)

❑ Faux green ap­ples

❑ Faux sun­flow­ers (like Or­ange Sun­flower Bush by Ash­land® from Michaels.com)

❑ 7 stems of twiggy flow­ers (like Bloom Room Hops Spray in Green from Joann.com)

❑ 1 stem of leaves (like Ar­ti­fi­cial Fo­liage Nan­d­ina Branch from Ama­zon.com)

❑ Ini­tial (like Un­fin­ished Wooden Let­ter from The-Craft­sOut­let.com)

❑ Acrylic craft paint (for ini­tial)

❑ Hot glue 1 Se­cure two twig wreaths to­gether with wire. For sta­bil­ity, Yvonne wires them at the top and the bot­tom.

2 Tie and glue bow to the top. Then glue the ap­ples to the bot­tom us­ing our photo as a guide. 3 Cut flower and leaves short and glue them on.

Then fill in with a few sprigs on the bot­tom around the ap­ples.

4 Paint the ini­tial the color of your choice. (Yvonne chose black to echo the color of the stripes in her burlap rib­bon.) Glue the ini­tial to the wreath.
