Spring Wreath

The process:  After seeing lots of spring wreaths online, I was inspired to make one of my own.  While I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do, there was nothing firm in my mind.  I started by wrapping a foam wreath with wide green ribbon.  A little more than halfway around, I ran out of ribbon 😦  It was either go back to the store to buy more, or come up with another solution.  I definitely wanted to have flowers on it and started playing around with some silk flowers I had recently bought at a yard sale.  I added a green button to the center of the white flower to match the green ribbon.

I liked the way the flowers looked on the wreath but I didn’t like that the styrofoam was peeking through between the flowers.  I set it aside for a day while I decided what to do.  At another yard sale, I came across a ton of lace and the lady was so happy that someone was going to find it useful that she let me fill up a bag for $1, even though she had most of it marked at $0.25 – $1 a piece 😀  I just LOVE good yard sale finds!!

So, after experimenting with some of the laces, I chose one to wrap the rest of the wreath then started gluing on the flowers.

A small bit of lace to hang it with and I’m done!!  My first wreath ever.

I’m linking up to these parties!

  2. I love the simplicity of your wreath! Thanks for sharing ~ please come by and say hi sometime!

  3. A-DOR-ABLE!! I love daisey-like flowers anyway, but my very favorite thing about it, is the button centers! So cute. Good job creatively solving your dilemma, when you ran out of green ribbon. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise. I think the white lace adds a whole knew element of pretty. TFS, and linking up at my place! It’s only our 2nd linky-party week, so I hope to grow in our number of participants. Please come join us again!
