Partial Transcript:
My name is Patty Roller and today I'm going to be making for you a birdhouse silk flower wreaths.

So you start with a grapevine wreath. You can choose any birdhouse you want. This is an arrangement that you could use for inside or outside, during the spring and summer, and you could change the flowers on it if you want for the fall.

This one here is really, really right. However, I still don't feel very good about the security of it so I'm going to wire it a little bit and try to make it a little more secure.

Now the birdhouse wreath that I have here on the easel has the arrangement on the side, which you can do, or you can have the arrangement at the bottom. I like it when the silk flower arrangements comes out the bottom and it's nice and long because it just adds to the length of the silk flower wreath and makes it look a little more fabulous on your door.

So what I'm going to do is start out with some fern, cut it about like so. You want some of the longer pieces also and I thought I would have the fern come out the bottom. But I think that I will also have the flowers come up the side.

So we want some fern that's longer, and then we will keep some of it shorter too. Now I just glue the fern into place and what you want them do is make sure that you get it stuck to some of the grapevine. Put plenty of glue on it because if you have it outside, you want to make sure it will withstand the weather.

If you have it on a door that you're using that opens and closes, you want to make sure it can withstand some movement too. So I'm going to have some fern come out the bottom. I've got it up the side and I've got it coming around here too.

So we have our fern in place. We have it all glued in. It's all going in a nice direction. I have a little bit of Boston fern here too which is a little bit softer-looking. So we will use a little bit of that. We keep it close to the birdhouse here.

Now because my birdhouse has several different colors to it, I thought that I would just make the floral arrangement real colorful which will be great for spring and summer.

So I have a little bit of blue. I have a little bit of purple. I'm using pink and yellow. Just something that really brightens your day. So these are the hyacinths nice and tall and straight. You want those coming up the side there.

Now once you put this in place, you want to bend it a little bit. So it has a little bit of movement so that your arrangement is not real stiff-looking. This is the purple delphinium. Bring this up in here and just give it a little more height. I'm going to keep this one a little shorter.

So we've created the height for the arrangement with the birdhouse and the delphinium and the hyacinths. One of my favorite flowers for spring and summer is the forsythia. It's so nice and bright and everybody really loves it. Everybody knows what it is. So once again, we want to shape this up a little bit. We will add a little bit of that throughout the hyacinths. Let's give it a little bit of motion.

Then I'm going to want to swing some down this way so that it goes with the flow of the greenery like so. I think we could use a couple more here because it looks like we could still use it right in here. So have them come out like this.

So when you put your greenery in, it's very important to create your shape with that and then you just want to add your silk flowers to keep that same shape.

If you wanted to use a nice, colorful ribbon, we could use it right here. I would like some long streamers because that would keep with the flow of the arrangement. There's a front and a back to all the flowers.

So you want to make sure that you bring the flowers toward the front. So that when someone comes to your door and sees your wreath, they're looking at the front of the flower, not the back of the flower.

Now we will put some nice pink flowers in here and I think we will kind of trail them up to the top of the arrangement. Those really bring out the pink in the birdhouse roof. We will swing them all the way over like so. I think I will just leave it like that.

I've got a few daffodils. We will use just a couple of those for like a focal point. It's probably getting full enough of flowers right now that we don't need to add a lot more.

I still would like to add a little more greenery and make it flow down a little bit more. So I'm going to keep these close to the birdhouse where your focal point would be and once again when I get them in place.....
