My mission over the past few weeks has been to find some sweet spring wreaths around Blogdom. This from the gal who still has a snowflake on her front door.
I offer my own spring wreath from Christmastime. I've dressed it up for spring (probably more like summer) with a few cabbage roses and a ratty old homemade ribbon ripped from painter's cloth.
Here is a wonderful list of spring wreaths. The good news is that there are many more. A simple search will yield one that's just right for your home.
New Grass and Daisies Spring Wreath This one is so cool and easy. I've got mine well begun. It's going on the front door.
Whimsical Spring Wreath It may be described as whimsical, but I find it elegant. I want one of those moss flowers!
Coffee Filters and Dye Wreath Very Easter! Your dye choices are going to make or break this one.
Curtsy to Spring Sweet little bird and leaf pattern on a grapevine wreath make this one of my favorites. Love it!
Eclectic Flower Bouquet Wreath Now this one! Ahhhh, this is the one that I want for my china cupboard. So darling ... I am oohing and ahhing all over the place. Do check it out!
Square Wreath This is way cool. I love a square wreath. I think it's beyond my abilities, but I do love the look.
Spring Wreath Using Paper Flowers Sooo cute, I had to add it.
Although my tutor suggested cutting linen on a bias for wrapping, I didn't bother. I simply ripped strips of painter's cloth, wrapped the wreath foundation, and pinned with simple sewing pins. It worked like a charm.
The next idea came from Lorrie at Fabric, Paper, Thread. She has a picture of her tutorials on her sidebar. I'm sure you can tell the one that influenced me.
Again, the doilies were simply pinned on with straight pins. I called it good enough and it was easy, easy, easy.
No, it's never "the end" with me. I just keep on going and going. The most difficult part of this was adding a cup hook to the inside top of my cupboard to hang the wreath from. Last night, my daughter was visiting and I showed her my project. She was typically quiet. I should have left well enough alone; instead, I asked her what she thought. Her response was, "I don't know what to think about that."
So, please, if you don't know what to think about that, just check the links for the other wonderful wreaths. There is always so much to choose from in Blogdom.
Have a very pleasant day...
