Spring Has Sprung! (DIY $10 wreath)

It’s really starting to look a lot like spring around here…even if the weather doesn’t show it!

Here is my $10 wreath I made at least 2 years ago and I LOVE it. I am able to use it all year long by just changing out how I decorate it. For example, for spring I added a hanging bunny in my Easter decorations and just hung it with the wreath. At Christmas I string bead garland and add a few ornaments and da-dah, it’s a Christmas wreath!  Whats great is that there is no need to find storage for it because its always hanging on my door.

 

I try to spread the cheer of spring throughout the house if I can, its just nice to get the house bright and cheery after a long cold winter.

Pretty much most of my decorations were bought really inexpensively (sales and dollar store or dollar section from Target) or I made them with my kids like the peeps garland hanging on the umbrella stand at my front door.

I made sure to add a few things to my newly renovated farmhouse style kitchen (stay tuned for a post just on this!)

Totaly in LOVE with my coffee bar area.

Here is a glimpse at the custom made (designed by me) sliding door shelf/curtain rod. I’ll post more about that on the reno post, coming soon.

DIY TIME!

 

I already had a grapevine wreath just hanging out on a wall in my house and I own a glue gun. I just needed a few glue sticks (ok maybe about 10!). 

I found a bag of 10 glue sticks at the dollar store, SCORE!  The only other thing I had to buy were the white poofy flowers. I found these at the Christmas Tree Shop, but the dollar store may be a great spot to grab some inexpensive flowers. I used 2 bunches worth of flowers and greenery ($3.99 ea)

“Watch out, I got a glue and I’m not afraid to use it -except when I burn my fingers…then I’m a bit scared”!

OK, here is what I did….

I pulled the flowers and the leaves off the stems.

Next, I started gluing the greenery around the wreath.

Then the flowers. I fluffed the petals to fill in any holes.

Bam! There’s my $10 wreath!

This is a great wreath, I can add seasonal elements (hearts, shamrocks, bunny) to reflect the seasons & just keep using the wreath 🙂

This wreath is so big and poofy, adds charm to my front door..LOVE IT!

Tell me how do you celebrate the thawing of winter and the blessing of spring weather?
