Spray Painted Wreath


hehe do you see me in the reflection?
About a month ago I bought a grape vine wreath and some beautiful (fake) purple spring flowers. I debated for three weeks what to do to it. I had this pinned-well sorta. I went to look at the original link and the person before me only pinned the main blog not the actual post. It's okay though I used this pin to help me find it on her blog. Anyways back to my story- I was going back and forth between wanting to spray paint it or not and I had some extra white on hand so I went for it. To be honest with you I didn't love it at first but it has grown on me. I love the contrast with my newly BLACK door.

Spray painting it took very little paint and I didn't have to paint the back. It looks well covered though.

When you glue the flowers you can use two methods:
1) Take the flower apart and glue together each layer
2) Scrunch (yes, that's the technical term) the flower together and put glue around the base (see picture). Press the flower firmly and hold onto wreath. The glue will hold the flower together and hold it onto the wreath.

Glue it where the middle section holding the flower comes through the base.
I used the second option this time and it was easier but I couldn't tell if they were as secure. We'll see!
 
What do you think?
