Who here is ready for Spring?!
If you’re jumping up and down and screaming “ME!” then you and I are on the same page 😉
I feel like we have been waiting for Spring to arrive for moooonths. And it’s FINALLY here. Or at least that’s what the calendar and Google tell me.
I can’t complain too much, though. The sun has peaked out from behind that clouds and I was able to take the boys outside for a bit today. There’s something magical that happens to these boys when they’re given trucks and dirt. They play together, they work together, there’s no screaming. And it lasts for SO LONG. Amazing.
While outside, I saw a few of our little bushes had fresh green sprouts on them and a couple of my flowers had a little green coming out of the ground. I do the love the new life and refreshing feeling you get from a simple change, from saying “it’s winter” to “it’s Spring”.
And all of this rambling has basically nothing to do with this wreath. Except that I guess you could consider it a spring wreath. I just had to comment on the fact that it’s SPRING!
This wreath was made for our farmhouse girls nursery to hang on an antique window above her crib. I wanted something simple but still with the pop of pink that fit so well in her nursery.
It took me probably 20 minutes total to make, and I LOVE how it looks in her room.
I started by using 12 gauge decorative wire (similar item). I wanted something that was simple and plain and wouldn’t take away from the pretty flowers.
After pulling out a decent amount from the roll, I held it up against the old window so I could see how big to make it. I didn’t measure at all, just kind of eye-balled it.
Once I had one loop measured, I repeated the same loop with the wire again, crossing the two pieces together, just to give it more depth and interest.
Last, I snipped the ends and wrapped them around. Be careful! The wire can be pretty sharp.
Next, it was on to the flowers!
Big surprise here – I picked them up at Michaels. Unfortunately they’re only sold in stores so I can’t link to the exact product. But, the flowers were part of their Spring collection (so on sale right now!!) and also considered “Bushes” (not sure how?).
I loved these particular flowers because near the big green leaves the flowers were in full bloom. Then, continuing to the tip, they got smaller and smaller until they were just little buds. SO pretty.
I cut two sections off to use for the wreath, cutting just past the green leaves to basically include two whole sections.
Using the same decorative wire cut into smaller pieces, I wrapped the wire around the first floral section in 3 different places to make sure it was held on tight.
Next, I attached the second floral section going the opposite way as the first. So, both green ends are overlapping. I used the same procedure as the first section to get it stay on. Try to hide the wire a bit underneath big leaves or larger flower sections. Though since I used the same wire as the wreath base itself, it really isn’t all that noticeable anyway.
And that is all, my friends! Really easy, right?
Once we had the window mounted to the wall, I used some lace scraps to hold the wreath to the window.
I’m completely in love with how it looks on the window and in her room in general. It’s the perfect accent to the window!
You could also just use plain greenery (like eucalyptus) to make an even simpler farmhouse style wreath.
