Springtime Wreaths

I'm not sure when it happened, but I've become one of those homeowners that changes their front door wreath with the seasons...or as the spirit moves me, whichever happens more frequently.

I love trolling Hobby Lobby (during 40% off picks and stems time, of course!) for *just* the right bits and pieces for my latest creation, and Pinterest in a constant source of wreath-y envy.

Here's one of my latest attempts...whatcha think?

Front Door Wreath


I love how bright and spring-y it looks, and the pink really pops from the street!

I know a lot of people hot glue their pieces into the grapevine wreath as they go, but I prefer to just wedge them in there, so I can change something small, or remove things altogether to make way for the next wreath creation. It's all a matter of personal preference, I think.

And how sweet is that little bird's nest (faux, of course!) I added in, just for fun, using just a small wire to wire it to the wreath?

But just to shake things up, a few weeks after hanging the wreath above, I was getting itchy for a new wreath, so I created this one...

My New Creation

I found the wreath base - with the greenery attached! - on clearance at Hobby Lobby, so I added in the forsythia and the fun iridescent lemon yellow ribbon. Isn't it pretty? And talk about EASY!

I wonder what the next wreath will look like...

I love these! I'm so jealous of people who can put up wreaths; I have screen door so I can't without squishing it. The top one is my fave, love the pink and the bird's nest. :)

Awww...thanks, Melissa! I have a storm door so they get a bit squishy, but they bounce back! :-)
