To make a quick wreath, select a grapevine form, and attach to it a ready-made silk spring floral garland. Use thin, flexible wire to fasten it in several places to the grapevine, and create a loop at the top with several twists of wire to secure the wreath to a door or wall. To complete, add a wired bow and decorative miniature bird or nest.

For an unusual garden wreath, select a short section of new garden hose, loop it loosely into wreath form and wire it together at one spot. Make a small arrangement of several silk garden flowers, wiring the stems together several inches below the base of the blossoms. Artfully arrange a new pair of colorful fabric garden gloves and a small children’s plastic garden tool such as a trowel, and wire them onto the arrangement near the tops of the flower stems. Trim the flower stems if necessary, and wire the bouquet over the point where the garden hose is wired together. Finish the wreath with a brightly colored coordinating ribbon bow that covers any exposed wiring of the focal point.
