Spring Wreath IDEAS

So I’ve been on a

WREATH making

BINGE

I started by just jotting down some ideas

and

started playing with the supplies

and

could not s.t.o.p. cranking out these babies!

Apparently, my creative juices were flowing…

I created several in one sitting:

No. 1

This one was JUST PLAIN FUN

it certainly says ‘spring-time’ to me!

It started off like this

home 031

and then I made all of these

home 032

 

home 044

home 045

 

home 047home 048

 

home 007

home 008

home 010

 

home 012

home 013

 

home 009

I’ll share a tutorial on making these
   pinwheels

soon

No. 2

let’s see how spring is measuring up..

home 006

home 007

I STOLE ‘borrowed’ by hubby’s thermometer from outside

{oops! – he went to check the temp and the thermometer was MIA…of course his keen investigative skills led him straight to me!!}

home 008

this wreath is a bit of a DIRECTIVE – telling mother nature to warm up – kinda bossy eh?

I’m so very DONE with winter!

home 013

No. 3

this one is a soft springy version

I’m calling this one a

Prairie Wreath

because it was made using pages from a
Little House On The Prairie Book

I was only able to let myself use these pages because there were already pages missing otherwise I don’t know that I could have torn it up!

(Pa would be crying now if he knew half-pint’s book was torn up
but I think Caroline would like it, don’t you?!)

I’m loving this ruffley paper flower I made popped into the center

See what I’m saying about the wreath making
BINGE thing?

I guess I have to go on a wreath diet now!

Happy SPRING everyone!!
