This project makes a beautiful centerpiece for any time of year. Simply change the floral colors to match the seasons! Simple to make and very few supplies are needed. Also makes a great gift!
You will need:
Grapevine Ball Mini grapevine wreath for stand (approx 4″) Ribbon – 2 yds Dried or Silk Flowers Hot glue gun //
If you make this project
What you do
Choose flower stems appropriate to the theme or colors Set Grapevine Ball in a bowl (so it will not move around on your surface). The top of the ball has a string attached for hanging. Decide how far down you want the flowers to cover the ball, cut stems appropriately. Attach leaves and stems to ball with hot glue. Making sure glue is on grapevines for secure hold. Make a bow with the ribbon. Decide where you want the bow to be in the arrangement and hot glue to grapevine. Hot glue bottom of ball to grapevine wreath stand. Supplies for this project are inexpensive enough that you can make a different one for each season. If you would prefer not to make more than one and just want to change out the colors, do not glue the floral pieces into the grapevine ball. This will make the piece a little more fragile as the floral arrangement will not be securely in place, but it is an option.
