Think Spring!

I have some SERIOUS spring fever going on!  So much so that I got excited when they said there was a chance for SPRINKLES today!!  Bring on the rain :o)

So, this weekend, I was determined to make a wreath like I featured a couple of Fridays ago.  I went to Hobby Lobby (I haven't been there since college... so fun!) and saw some gorgeous springy flowers on sale for 50% off... can't beat that!  Then, I was going to get a wire wreath frame but saw this one and immediately fell in love :o)


Check out the details!

First, I pulled all of the individual flower stems off of the bundles.

Then, I just arranged them and glued them down!  Easy peasy!

Ta-da!!


I can't wait to get some wide ribbon to hang it with... when all of the snow has melted.

Oh, and did I mention that you absolutely MUST have two adorable little helpers?

Total cost: $6.  Seriously!  It took about 15 minutes too.  I'll post an updated pic when I have it hung :o) 

I'm linking to these parties this week!  Check out all of the cool project links!!  Happy March!

I have an old grapevine wreath hanging around. I'm going to try the same thing with lavender from my yard. Well, after the lavender blooms :)

I found you on Tip Junkie. This wreath is really cute! I think I need to find some blue flowers. Aren't little helpers the best? =o)

Love the wreath!! I am getting spring fever too! Quick question? My eye was immediately drawn to the chairs, are they bean bags? Did you cover them yourself or buy covers? I love them.
Thanks for sharing.

Lanie Ree said...

Um, I love this. Which is why I featured it.

Thank you for linking up to A Little Craft Therapy with Life in the Pitts.

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

I'm so ready for spring. This wreath is perfect! Your helpers are adorable!

Thanks for linking up to Make it Yours day!

Rachel@oneprettything.com said...

Oh how pretty! I had to do a double take, I thought these were air plants at first. I just clicked over from Someday Crafts and I'm so glad I did. I would love to link to this if you didn't mind.

Shannon said...

Thanks so much to you all!

MEG- I couldn't reply on your blog because your profile is private but I actually made the bean bags. I made an insert for them as well but they could definately be used as a cover for a store-bought bean bag. If you would like me to make you one, contact me and I'll set up a special listing in my Etsy shop.
