Spring Wreath

It's really starting to feel like spring here in Seattle and I'm loving it!  So naturally, I've busted out all my spring decor and even got the itch to create a new spring wreath for my front door. 

It all started with mint mesh.  I saw it during one of my many trips to Hobby Lobby and fell in love.  I know you typically use this type of material to make more of a flowy wreath, but I actually prefer taking a straw wreath and simply wrapping my fabric around it.  Easy peasy. :)

Here is an example of the wreath I used.

Once my wreath was wrapped, I took a small amount of hot glue to seal the end.  I chose three different types of flowers to dress up my wreath - gerber daisies, peonies and hydrangeas.  I like to lay my flowers out to make sure I get it just the way I want before gluing.  Then to work I go!


Don't you just love that bird?!?  I found it at Michaels for .39!  And I didn't even need to paint it - woot woot!

Here are a couple more shots in it's new home.
 
 

Enjoy the sun!
