You see, I took down our Christmas wreath and never put another one up.
Every time I looked at our poor naked door I thought to myself, "That door needs a new outfit, a brighter one"
So my spring wreath was created.
Now, I know that what I created was/is not earth shattering, or even a new idea, but I love it none the less, and perhaps you too will be inspired :)
Here's what I used:
A large grapevine wreath
and some Hot Glue
I took a long strip of fabric
(it was about 3 ½ inches wide and unfortunately, I forgot to measure the length,
but the longer and wider the strip, the larger the flower)
Folded it in half and sewed a running stitch from the beginning to the end of the fabric strip.
Gathering the fabric as I went
Until I had sewn and gathered the entire strip
Next I manipulated the fabric strip into a flower shape,
sewed a coordinating button on and moved on to the next flower.
All together I made 6 flowers, and using hot glue, I glued them onto my wreath and tied that baby onto my naked front door with some pretty blue ribbon.
Ahhh, I feel so much better, now that my door is dressed!
I also embraced my wishful thinking and added a new message to my front porch chalkboard
And I'll pay no attention to the fact that I woke up last Saturday morning to more snow on the ground and this week the temps are suppose to stay in the 40's.
Here's to Wishful Thinking!
