I hate to admit this, but I am really terrible about changing things our with the change in seasons. The wreath on my front door has been there for about 18 months. It’s cute, it’s colorful, it’s very Fall, which is exactly when I made it and hung it there. The first day of Spring has passed and the rain has let up to sunshine. I was feeling inspired today and decided that my front door was in need of a long over do make-over.
I wanted to craft a beautiful Spring wreath but stick to a budget and spend as little as possible. I figured that I could recycle the actually wreath and just add new embellishments to make my Spring wreath stand out.
I made a quick trip to the craft store yesterday, and after 20 minutes of shopping I got in line online to find out that their computers were down and they could only accept cash and hand scratch receipts. Um, who still carries cash? After morning naps today we made our way back to the craft store to pick up our purchases that were being held. It turned out to be a win for me, not only was everything I was buying on sale 40% off, but they gave me an additional 30% off my total purchase for actually coming back and picking up my hold!
I trimmed off the ends of my floral pieces, but left the stem long enough to secure on the back of the wreath. This is how I can limit the amount of hot glue I have to use and then peel off later if I want to change the wreath up.
I positioned my flowers with enough room to put my gigantic burlap bow in between the two sets. After my monogram letter is dries I hot glued it into place and gave it a few minutes before hanging it outside.
