We are having unseasonably cold weather here in Georgia and it’s really getting on my nerves. It’s Spring for crying out loud! Even if the thermostat says otherwise, I was determined to bring Spring to my home.
I had this vision in my head of a really cute wreath, but by the time I finished, it was completely different, but equally cute and springy!
I shopped at the Dollar Tree for artificial flowers and gardening gloves. I found my super cute spade at Marshall’s, and the wreath, butterflies, and watering can at Michael’s.
I knew I wanted the watering can to appear to be watering the flowers, so I called in the special skills of my hubby and his power tools:
He drilled two small holes in the back side of the watering can, and I used a pipe cleaner to tie it to the wreath.
I tied it on at an angle and clipped a little butterfly next to it.
I clipped the artificial flowers apart from their bunches and laid them out on the wreath. Once I figured out the placement, I simply wove their stems into the branches of the wreath, then tied a strip of burlap around them to hide the stems.
Finally, I laid the gardening gloves on the wreath, placed the spade on top, and tied them on with a pretty satin bow.
Besides the fact that my front door is in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint, I think it looks rather cute! My front door is dressed for Spring…sure wish I could do the same! Come on warm weather!!!
