We are finally having some Spring-like weather around here; we’ll just forget about the snow we had this morning. ;) And, I was definitely ready to usher Spring into our home too. I didn’t have a ton of time, but I knew I could easily change out the winter wreath by making a new spring wreath. I had picked up some cheap supplies while I thrift shopped the previous weekend. I started with the $1.00 wreath I found.
It had good components, but not the overall look I wanted. So, I pulled everything off the wreath to get it down to the grapevine.
Then, I added some hydrangeas that I bought for 75 cents for the lot.
After the hydrangeas, I added some peonies…these were a little pricier at $1.25 per flower, but still a bargain compared to the craft stores. When I added the peonies, I decided the pink hydrangea didn’t work and removed it.
I wasn’t real sure of the look at this point, but I kept working on it. I started added in some of the smaller flowers that had been on the wreath before. Oh, and I added the pink hydrangea back in. My wreath making is really a trial and error process.
I still wasn’t sure with the look, and I was making quite a mess on the floor. I propped up the wreath after adding a few more small flowers
And, this is when I decided it wasn’t going to work for me. The big flowers were too big and the little ones looked funny in the gaps. I really liked the pink hydrangea and the peonies, so I decided to keep them and make the flowers just on one side.
This was more like it. I kept adding a few more small flowers to finish it off.
When I get to this point, I always have to just go hang it on the door and see if I like it.
Sure enough, I liked it. I did make a few minor flower positioning tweaks with it hanging, but overall didn’t change much.
I really like the big puffy flowers on the natural grapevine wreath, and not bad for $5.00.
Has Spring weather arrived where you live? Have you ushered it in with Spring décor?
