Hello amazing friends! Today I am bringing you a little Spring inspiration! Who else is ready to leave this Winter far far behind??
One of my favorite blogging friends, Krista from The Happy Housie, is hosting several weeks of Spring blog hops and this week is all about Spring wreaths! (Several other talented gals are sharing wreaths today as well so be sure to look for them at the bottom!)
When I think of Spring, I immediately think of things turning green. I wanted a simple wreath that implies that warmer weather has arrived, but isn’t necessarily committed to one particular season. That way I can enjoy it all the way up until the Fall.
And because I’m cheap, I wanted it to be inexpensive. Mission accomplished.
Here’s my very simple $7 Spring Wreath:
I told you it was simple, and it was just as simple to make. And it only cost me $7 dollars!
It’s the perfect pop of green here in our living room:
Want to make one too??
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Greenery (Found at Hobby Lobby.)
2. Grapevine (This is part of an old wreath.)
3. Floral Wire
4. Wire cutters
This bushel (Is that what this is called?) from Hobby Lobby was regularly $15, but on sale for 50% off.
To get started, I took apart an old Summer wreath I already had and snipped some of the grapevine off of it. I needed just enough to give my wreath form.
I bent the grapevine into about a 12″ circle and secured with floral wire:
Then I cut the greenery into individual pieces:
More than this came from that one bushel, but you get the idea.
Then I just started tucking the stems into the grapevine like so:
I added another, slightly overlapping, and so on until I had one layer all the way around:
Then I added a second layer all the way around…
I secured it here and there with more floral wire and called it a day!
Almost too easy…
This would also look great hanging on an interior door, an old window, or even a regular window, hanging from a bit of ribbon.
It looks right at home here on my favorite mirror. (I have it hanging with a command hook.)
Did I mention it was super easy to make? 🙂
I already had the floral wire and the wreath, so I only had to buy the greenery and I didn’t quite use one whole bushel.
I was able to get two more smaller grapevine forms out of that one old wreath…
So I made a wreath for either side of my built-ins as well. I’m undecided if they will stay or not. When I get my living room all set for Spring, I’ll be sure to come back and share!
Several other super talented ladies are sharing their own Spring wreaths today. You can visit them all at the links below!
Here are a couple of my favorite Spring wreaths from the past…
I’ll be back on Thursday sharing how I went to town on some smalls for my booth!
See ya then!
