Spring Wreath

I’m feeling ready for Spring. Although that really just means a few more months of rain here in the Northwest, but at least it’ll be a little warmer, right? I love spring flowers and thought it would be fun to make a wreath inspired by those flowers.

I think these daffodils look so happy…

And since I already had yellow fabric, I though it’d be fun to make flowers with a  red center, kind of like this orange centered one…

Picked up a wreath form at the Dollar Tree as well as some fake flowers, made good use of my glue gun and… Tada!

A nice, cheery wreath ready to brighten my dreary, gray days!

I used both yellow and red buttons as the centers of the flowers. The ribbon to hang it from is a cute sheer with white polka dots and yellow trim, also from the Dollar Tree.

I’m selling this one at Blackberry Junction, but have a form to make one for myself as well (although I don’t think Nolan will be too thrilled, he said this one was too girly).

And… don’t forget to check out the great parties I link up with! Their buttons are all in my left sidebar.

  6. Love your wreath! It's so pretty and sunshiney! You can definitely see the daffodil inspiration in it. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm hosting a Throwback Thursdays Party, and would love it if you swung by and linked up something you made/bought/did from before blogging. I can't wait to see what you bring.
