Happy Monday my friends! Did you enjoy your Easter? It came and went so fast…didn’t it? Even though the holidays are over for a little while, we still have lots of yummy Spring recipes, decorating and DIY projects to share with you. This Spring Flower Wreath adds a nice splash of Spring color to your home and a little whimsy too! I bet your Mom or Grandma would love this for Mother’s Day, too!
After making the St. Patrick’s Day Door Hanging and the Spring letters, Doug and I have become a little addicted to this easy method using wood and scrapbook paper. It takes very little time, the outcome is beautiful and the options are endless.
Isn’t it darling? We hung it on the kitchen door, it makes me smile every time I pass by. The “wreath” is a square piece of plastic grass that I had on the coffee table. And the flowers are made with wood, scrapbook paper and straws for the stems.
My original thought was to make the flowers to hang on a garland, but after we started putting them together, they seemed to work better on the grass… like they are blooming in your yard.
How to make a Spring Flower Wreath
