Inexpensive grapevine wreath

Grapevine wreaths are so beautiful that it doesn't take much to make them ready to be hung.

Materials needed:

Grapevine wreath--I found mine for $3.50 at Walmart
Scrapbook paper
Chenille stems
Floral wire
Mini birdhouse (optional)
Twine (optional)

To make the paper butterflies:
Cut 2 squares from scrapbook paper (mine are 5"x5"). Round the corners of the squares and fold each into an accordion shape. Fold a chenille stem in half. With the folds horizontal, stack the pieces of paper and wrap the chenille stem around the butterfly. The stem will make the body. Twist the two top pieces of the stem to look like the antenna. Fan out the paper so it looks like a butterfly. 
To give it more fullness I glued the top and bottom
together so it stayed fanned out

Using floral wire, secure the butterflies to the wreath.
I found my mini birdhouse in the 10 cent bin at Michael's. I used a piece of twine to hang it from the wreath.

Wreaths like this tend to be very expensive at home decor stores, but the total cost for me was $3.60. Not too shabby for 20 minutes of work.

My final wreath in wreath mania will be an easy $2 photo wreath. Keep reading!
