Spring Wreath

Spring is in the air. After all the wonderful rain we got in Southern California this winter, the sunshine is welcome. The rain brought a lot of new growth so I’m sure it’s going to be a beautiful Spring. The birds are chirping and butterflies are dancing in the air so I thought it was time to make a wreath for the season.

I made the wreath so everything on it can easily be removed and the grapevine wreath can be used over again.

I like to make my money stretch so reusing items is a great way to accomplish this. Also, I usually don’t want to put up the same wreath every year because my tastes change and I usually see things I like better. I already had everything I needed to make this wreath so it cost me $0.00 to make. Wow, I would say that is a good deal!  Look around your house and see what you have, you might be surprised. If you need to buy something all the materials can be purchased at a craft store.

Materials Needed:

  • grapevine wreath
  • sprig of flowers
  • moss
  • hot glue gun
  • bakers twine
  • card stock paper
  • tape or glue for the sign ( I used wash tape, my new fav thing)

Directions:

Step 1. Print (I used Savoye LET font) or write out the word SPRING on the card stock. Cut out the letters and tape it to the bakers twine. Secure it on the wreath by wrapping the ends around the wreath.

Step 2. Bend the flower sprig to fit in the wreath and tie with bakers twine.

                

Step 3. Place the moss on the wreath and use just a small dot of glue to secure it.

Step 4. Put the bird and nest on the moss with a small dot of glue.

 

There you have it! A simple, inexpensive Spring wreath. I hope you enjoy your wreath as much as I do. Let me know how it went for you.
