Ivy Vine Wreath

 I really was excited when I figured out I could use Ivy for replacing grapevine.  I know I am so cheap, but this is cool.  I should have named my blog cheapskate.  This was a perfectly free wreath.  I kept it simple to show off the vine. 

 I got the idea for the flowers on Pinterest,(I love to be pinned ;))  You can see the original wreath, I could not find the original maker for it.  Click my Pinterest button to see my boards.
 I just cut the egg carton cups into flowers and glued paper circles to the centers.
I have so many new ideas for ivy vine,  you will be seeing it again.

Side note:  English ivy in the Northwest is very invasive and takes over trees and plants.  This is a good way to help reduce ivy and use the vines. 
Next week I am taking a class on Basket making with ivy.  I will post on that so you have something new to do with it.
Happy Crafting!
