DIY Spring Wreath

Like all of you, I’m desperate for tulips and daffodils to start popping out of the ground.  Unfortunately, that’s just not going to happen for a while.  

To help brighten my day and my front door, I made a DIY spring wreath this past weekend.

To get me through these gloomy days I’ll light a fireplace and curl up in a comfy chair.  

With a mug of a hot tea or a glass of wine in hand, I thumb through catalogs and magazines.  

A beautiful spring wreath caught my eye in one such catalog, this past weekend. I wanted it but with a price tag of $349, it stopped me in my tracks.

There would be no running for my purse to grab my credit card and make that purchase; instead, I grabbed my purse and ran out to Hobby Lobby and bought some awesome faux flowers to make my own DIY Wreath.

I couldn’t find the exact same flowers but with a grapevine base and a green garland, I got to work.  Once I fired up my hot glue gun, I was ready to create!

It took a while but I finally got the garland secured, with lots of glue and the help of some chip bag clips.

Now I was ready to add flowers but first I had to take the sprays and cut them apart with a wire cutter.  
I purchased five flower sprays, three mini flower picks, and one garland for only $40.00. Of course, this price included the typical Hobby Lobby 50% off.  That’s a savings of $309.00 plus shipping.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with my DIY Spring Wreath.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next Monday!
