Happy First Day of Spring

Hello and Happy Spring!  We are so happy to say goodbye to a very long winter.  Today, I am sharing a wreath I recently made that is so cheery and spring-y.

I used a very easy method of wreath making for this one.  I used a wire wreath that I had in my basement and wrapped it in some ribbon I picked up at AC Moore.  I love the fresh green and the polka dots.  I simply wrapped the ribbon around the wire wreath form.  I only needed the one spool of ribbon.  Couldn't be simpler!

When I had the wreath completely wrapped, I used a hot glue gun to attach the last piece in the back.

Then, I attached 3 yellow flowers (also from AC Moore) to the front of the wreath with hot glue.  I cut a small hole in the ribbon where I wanted the flowers to go and glued the stem of the flower right into the ribbon.

I planned on putting this on my front door, but I decided to use it in the kitchen on a mirror instead where I could enjoy seeing it more.

I am still trying to decide what to do about that chandelier.  That bronze finish is clashing with  everything.  We took a trip to our nearest Pottery Barn Outlet (which is 1.5 hours away) this weekend but there was not much lighting to choose from there.  I am trying to find a more affordable option than purchasing one that I like from the Pottery Barn catalog.  The search continues...

  1. Maybe a small black chandelier with drippy candles?
