It felt so much like spring this past week that I think the predicted snow will really be a shock! I decided to get a wreath ready for the front door. I may not hang it until March 1, but it was fun to play with the pastel colors.
I've decided to use "Easter egg colors" this year in my spring decorating. I was so pleased to find the polka dot ribbon with pastels.
I find that I get more for my money if I buy my florals in a bush and tear them apart. I started with 2 identical hydrangea bushes in a soft green. When all the pieces were separted, I had lots to work with.
Starting with a $4.99 grapevine wreath from Hobby Lobby, I used a glue gun to attach the blossoms in groupings. After the blossoms are secure, a few larger leaves were added, followed by some branches of leaves to fill the spaces between the blossoms. The ribbon is the last thing I work with.
One of the things that I think adds to a wreath is to attach ribbon all through the wreath. I think it creates a more finished look that simply adding a bow.
This is the finished piece. I tend to like things that aren't symmetrical and are slightly "odd". You could created a more perfect look by adding blossoms all over the wreath if you like.
