Spring Wreath

Back in the fall I tried my hand at making my first wreath for the front door.  Now that it's spring I've been thinking it's time for a change.  I have been wanting something fresh and well, "springy."

I had a vision in my head and headed to Hobby Lobby.  Instead of wrapping the wreath form in yarn this time, I wanted to use moss because of the texture it would provide.

After about 20 minutes in the store, here are the products I walked out with.

Spanish Moss

Fake butterflies

Flower sprig

Silk daisies

Foam wreath

I started by laying out a sheet in the kitchen because that Spanish moss is a mess to work with.  I was going to go in the garage, but it was too cold.  Using a low-temp glue gun and special glue for foam, I went to work applying the moss to the wreath form.  

Once the form was covered I began the tedious work of cutting the small pink and white buds from the stems.  Then I stuck the individual buds in and around the wreath.

After placing all of the small pink and white buds, I decided to add some daisies.  Not sure if you feel this way, but nothing says "spring" like daisies.

And the final touch was to add the fake butterflies.  

Such a fresh-looking wreath.  I love it so much I almost would rather it be indoors so I could see it everyday.


  1. That is such a lovely wreath. It looks just like spring time. I am on my way to Hobby Lobby to copy ;^}
