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.
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.
