I ‘ve been waiting for warmer weather to make my spring wreath. Today, when I woke up to beautiful sunny skies I quickly grabbed my supplies and started working on the wreath for my front door. When I stepped out on my back porch to go photograph my finished wreath I was nearly knocked down by the wind. The wind was so aggressive but, the sun was shining down and I could feel the warmth on my face. I lugged myself towards the back of the house to place the wreath on the fence . I started photographing the wreath it was simply a gorgeous spring day, wind and all! The weather was definitely a welcome change from the cold rainy weather that we have been experiencing the last few days. What’s the weather like where you live? I hope you like my Spring Welcome wreath as much as I do!
Would you like to know how I made my wreath ? Keep reading!
Oval Grapevine Wreath
Black Sharpie Marker
Hot Glue Gun
Cut the bottom of the stem from the flowers . Using floral wire secure
the flowers together .Secure flowers to the wreath with floral wire or hot
glue, make sure you cover the wire with the flowers.
Make a template for your welcome banner by drawing and cutting out a
triangle to the size you want. Trace 8 triangles on the burlap with chalk.
Cut triangles out. Using a Phillip screwdriver poke two holes in each
triangle. Use sharpie marker to make the letters . Spell out “Welcome”.
String together the triangle’s using the Jute. Hint: put tape or
glue on each end of the jute to make it pass easily through the
holes. Glue your banner to the wreath.
I think the wreath looks great on the fence but, will look better on my front door. I really like the way the “Welcome” banner turned out. I can use this wreath throughout the summer months. It will look great for Spring, Easter and Summer. Have you bought or made a wreath lately?
