It's wreath season at my house and I am thrilled to be making wreaths for my dear girls.
The two oldest have chosen neutral naturals and the youngest has chosen green naturals.
I have finished one of them and I have hung it on my secretary for inspiration
to create this Spring Vignette.
I have been hot gluing like crazy at my house these past few days and unfortunately have a
blister on one finger that is very uncomfortable.
I think it was worth it though for this cute Spring Wreath, one thing is certain,
I know it is not going to fall apart!
Not one thing went to waste making this wreath, not even the leaves.
Total cost around $10.00- $15.00, it will depend on your choice of flowers.
At the very least I buy my floral when they are 50 percent off, better yet, always shop the
discount section, as there are always pretty posies left behind.
Materials Needed to Make This 12 inch Spring Wreath
*( 1) 10 inch straw wreath form (finished product measures 12 inches).
* (24) 2 inch flowers and leaves from stems.
* (30) 1/2 inch flowers and leaves from stems.
* Hot glue gun and glue sticks.
* Ribbon ( to hang wreath).
Spring Wreath Tutorial
12 Inch Spring Wreath Directions
Remove plastic from straw wreath, cut 24 floral stems to one inch in length.
Cut leaves off stems and set them aside.
Taking the tip of scissors separate the fibers of the straw wreath.
Place a generous dollop of hot glue into hole made by the tip of scissors.
Push 1 inch floral stems into hole with hot glue and hold for a few seconds.
Glue the 24 floral stems that you have cut to one inch length around the top of the wreath
then work your way around to the sides.
Cut stems and leaves off (30) 1/2 inch flowers.
Set leaves aside and save to add later.
Hot glue 1/2 inch flowers onto the bare spaces of the wreath.
Glue the leaves, around entire center of wreath.
Tuck and glue leaves around wreath to create natural appearance.
There are a couple of great finds that I have been wanting to incorporate into this Vignette.
The wicker/rattan chair which I found at Angels Attic-$15.00 and the brass water pitcher I picked
up in Oklahoma while visiting my daughter and granddaughter-$5.00.
I cut back the roses that were still looking good from my Valentine flowers and bunched them up
in the cute chubby brass pitcher.
I added some green zest to my antique secretary desk by using green Ikat scrap book paper and
taping it to the back of the desk, along with green ceramic apples which I picked up at the Red
Door in Louisiana. I like how the green adds harmony to the Spring vignette.
Then, I found these hankies in my sister's cedar chest.
I lovingly ironed them, placed them on this silver tray and included them in my Spring Vignette
-but I must share this with you.
You see those monogram MJ initials-those were my Mother's-
I suspect she did this stitching as a child.
This Spring Vignette seems to have something for all of my family....so pleased.
