Spring is in the air! Most days, that is. When it’s not snowing, because this is Alberta. I try not to get ahead of myself decorating for spring when the weather is still this unpredictable, but I think it is time. Maybe a few wreath ideas for spring and summer will make spring feel welcome and move in? I think it is worth a try!
The last few years I did very little crafting and focused all my energy on big renovation projects. Until just before Christmas. I enjoyed it so much that I pretty much kept going and that’s why you are seeing so many crafting posts lately!
I am still renovating and currently, I’m working on a complete bedroom makeover for one of my girls. The problem with these big projects is that there isn’t always something pretty to show during the project and that can be frustrating when you are blogging. That is why crafting is such a sanity saver for me. I can take one afternoon off from working on the reno and create something fun. Instant gratification, if you will.
I digress. Let’s talk wreaths!
Two wreaths in one afternoon
Making these wreaths must have been the quickest and easiest craft I have ever done. The grapevine wreaths, faux florals and ribbon that I used are all from Michael’s because that is all we have in town.
At first, I thought I would use my glue gun to attach every piece, but no need for that. I used pliers to cut the individual flower stems from the main stem and I stuck them, piece by piece, into the grapevine wreath. The vines are braided together so densely, that sticking the wire stems in between them, keeps them securely in place. Make sure to cut the wire stems as long as possible for this reason.
Front door wreath
For this one, I chose mainly red with a bit of yellow and pink. It matches my red front door perfectly. That is while the door is still red. But that is a discussion on its own that’s been going on in my head since last spring. I like it red… but I also want it white… or maybe black…
I love the look of my first-ever spring wreath. Isn’t this giving all the spring vibes? I am so here for it!
The porch still lacks fresh flowers and greenery but that will have to wait until the end of May in order to survive our unpredictable weather.
Above the mantle wreath
For this wreath I chose a white, yellow and green palette. Fresh and springy.
If you prefer a natural colour palette, you would love this spring craft.
I would never have guessed that I would enjoy making wreaths this much. More assembling than making, but still.
Who wouldn’t enjoy crafting with such a cute little helper?
Spring ready? I would say!
I love all the florals on my mantle. Even if they aren’t fresh.
Now, I need to get back to my reno project! With a bit of luck, I will be able to share some of that with you in my next post. Remember to subscribe to future blog posts because you won’t want to miss that!
