Do It Yourself: Summer Blooms Wreath

What you need:Large grapevine wreath (good time to break out the Michael’s 40% off coupon)
Small clay pots in varying sizes (I used 21 in the 3 smallest sizes I could find)
Acrylic paint and brush
Spray can of acrylic sealer
Floral wire
Buttons (one for each clay pot you use)
Step One:
Paint each pot.  When fully dry spray with acrylic sealer.  Follow the instructions on the can and make sure your area is well ventilated.
Step Two:
Cut floral wire into 6-8 inch pieces.  You’ll need one for each clay pot.  String one button onto each wire and twist the two wire ends a couple of times behind each button to keep it in place roughly in the centre of the wire.Step Three:
When acrylic sealer is fully dried, place one button/wire inside each clay pot.  Pull the wires through the hole in the bottom of the clay pot.Wire into place on the grapevine wreath.  Arrange the pots however you wish.  If you plan on making a similar one to mine, I suggest starting at the bottom where the pots are “fullest” and clustered closest together.Step Four:
When you’re happy with your design, hang the wreath on the door and admire!
