Creating Wreaths From Vines

Wreaths are a typical holiday decoration, but don't forget that they can brighten your door at any time of year. And you can even make them yourself using materials from your own yard.

Florida vines that are suited for wreath making include grapevines, ivy, trumpet creeper, and morning glory.

You can weave the vines into a circle, or secure the vines to a wreath form made of foam, straw, or wire. Fill in the wreath with flowers, nuts, leaves, or pine cones. You can also try adding dried gardenias, hydrangeas, and roses.

You can find more ideas and supplies for making wreaths at your local floral or craft shop.
