A Wreath of Roses...

Wednesday, April 22, 2015


The many varieties of roses that bloom this time of year inspired this simple custom wreath made of faux flowers and vines.  It is a traditional design made for someone who likes classic country florals and values simplicity.  


This project began with a grapevine wreath which I then covered with blush pink and white old-fashioned roses inserted into the wreath base at different angles for a natural look.  The smaller ecru roses were then worked in for variety.  After all the light colored roses were placed throughout the wreath, I filled in the spaces between the flowers with greenery.  To keep the design traditional, faux garden foliage like creeping ivy and variegated vines were used, some with delicate white blossoms.  Finally, after all the neutral flowers were in place, I added the bright coral rosebuds for accent.


The Gilded Bloom now has a companion website called The Gilded Bloom Studio and is now on FacebookTwitterPinterest and Instagram.  For more floral inspired ideas and updates,  please connect with me on these networks.  You can also follow The Gilded Bloom on Bloglovin' or via email using the subscription box near the top of this page. Hope to see you there!
