A Spring Wreath That Will Make You Smile

April 15, 2015


Hey everyone guess what?
Spring has finally arrived in New York!!  

It is the perfect day to make a colorful spring wreath.


For this simple wreath I used:
one bouquet of silk pansies
 one roll of turquoise burlap
one Styrofoam wreath form
straight pins
twine
wire cutters
two buttons
needle and thread
scissors


NO GLUE INVOLVED
{that makes me smile}


FIRST
Wrap the burlap around the wreath form
Use two straight pins: one in the beginning and one at the end to hold the burlap in place.



Cut the extra burlap and pin in place.



NEXT
Use wire cutters to cut the stems of the pansies.
Then gather the stems together and wrap twine around them to hold in place.
Then bend the stems downward and clip any stems that are showing.




THEN
Use whatever kind of ribbon you'd like. Tie it around the twine and the stems then make a bow.
I used wired ribbon.





Sew two buttons on top and you're done!


No gluing involved... now when summer comes along I can take the whole thing apart and make a summer wreath.


FINALLY
DISPLAY AND SMILE

You can display this wreath inside your home or on your front door in a covered area.


Guaranteed to make you smile!! 
HAPPY SPRING!
