Spring Wreath

I think with the mid-80's temperature today, I can safely say (knock on wood) that we are officially into spring and done with the snow.  We planted some flowers and a few herbs in the front and back of the house, but today I decided it was time to brighten up the front door a bit too.

I had this wreath hanging there since we took down the Christmas decorations, and it is still a beautiful late winter wreath that I love to hang up every year.  But with the sun shining and the temperature rising, I wanted to make a new wreath that would better complement the beautiful flowers and budding trees everywhere.

One thing I love doing is going into a craft store with only an idea of what I want to make, but no prior expectations of what materials to use.  The beautiful thing about craft stores is you can walk around and just get inspired.  Walking through the flower section, I saw these spectacular big spring flowers that just jumped out at me.

I wandered around until I found some nice cream burlap to wrap around the wreath mold, and I was going to just leave it at that.  Nice and clean and pretty.  But then on the way up to the register, I ran into the perfect pink twine that I knew would make a great finishing touch, haphazardly wrapped around the wreath on top of the cream burlap.

A little bit of hot glue and a couple of straight pins later, and I have a beautiful front door addition to my little house for the spring.  Quick and easy, and I love it!
