“hello” spring wreath

March 14, 2014

While WNY was under cover of a blizzard, I was busy willing the Spring to come…through crafting.  I have had a fun Spring wreath in mind to replace this Snowflake Wreath, but partway through, the darn thing wasn’t coming out the way I had envisioned.  Crafter problems, right?  I stepped back and started over.  Much to my surprise, I finished with this beauty.

Hello-Spring-Wreath

This one was a little out of the box for me, not to mention much more pink than I would usually do for a front door wreath.  Simple, quick, and neutral is usually my style, with a clear plan in mind ahead of time.  This time, I worked and added a little at a time, until I got what I wanted.  Let me not forget to mention that it was a slow work in progress because the kids were home too.  My glue gun was plugged in all day.  I actually finished after they went to bed.  (Is that bad?)

First, the navy ribbon on the white wreath.

Hmmm…how about some pink twine?

Why not add a message in there?  In glitter

There was going to be big pink peonies, but I changed my mind.  Felt flowers it is.

Done!

I actually love the pink, and the nautical feel to it.  Now, if Spring would really just get here already!!!
