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.
