Brighten up your door this spring by making a gorgeous forsythia wreath!

Sunburst grapevine wreath
10-15stems of silk forsythia stemsI used 11
22-gauge floral wire
Hot glue gunoptional
Begin by using your wire snips to cut the sprigs of forsythia flowers from the branch. Cut from the bottom of each sprig, you will have some long and some short.
Set aside any loose flowers that have fallen off your branches. We will use these later.
To make assemble easier, separate the forsythia springs into two piles according to size. You'll be adding the larger sprigs first.
Cut a piece of floral wire about 4-inches long. Wrap the floral wire around the forsythia sprig a couple of time to secure it in place.
Begin with the longer sprigs and attach them with floral wire to the outer ends of the wreath, wrapping the open end around one of the grapevine twigs.
Continue working around the grapevine wreath, attaching forsythia sprigs along the outer wreath twigs.
Next begin filling in empty areas with the smaller forsythia sprigs. Work your way completely around the wreath.
Take the loose flowers you set aside earlier and fill in spots in the wreath by sliding them into the empty tubes on the sprigs. If you like, you can secure sprigs with a hot glue gun. I didn't but we'll see how it holds up after the door opens and closes a hundred times.
