Croc Wreath

One of the greatest things about Blogland is the sharing of all sorts of fabulous ideas. We get to see so much creativity on a daily basis and incorporate it into our own lives.  A while back I saw a wreath over at Bungalow.  Debra made the cutest wreath using a pair of crocs.  Since I was in need of a new front door wreath this year, I thought I’d give it a whirl.  So here is my take on the croc wreath.

First I started with a grapevine wreath, some ribbon, some burlap, assorted flowers, wire, glue gun and of course a small pair of crocs.

I wanted a very outdoor/rustic look, so I wrapped burlap around the grapevine wreath and tied it at the bottom.

From there I used floral wire to secure the shoes to the wreath.

Once the crocs are on secure, arrange your flowers any which way you like then hang it anywhere you like!
