May Flowers Wreath DIY
I was in desperate need for something for my front door after Easter. I wanted something that I could use for a while and not have to worry about it.
Finally I got this idea in my head about using an old watering can and flowers!
Off I went to the craft stores to see what I could find.
I hit the jackpot at Michael's. They had just what I wanted!
What I Used
1 foam wreath thing
1 silver watering can/pitcher
1 spool of green ribbon
1 spool of burlap
Leftover green felt ribbon
Hot glue gun
Start wrapping the burlap around the foam wreath form. Make sure to overlap it so you can't see through the burlap.
Hot glue the end in place.
Loop the ribbon through the handle of the watering can/pitcher and hot glue in place.
Cut a piece of ribbon and make a loop. Hot glue it to the back of the wreath.
You should probably do this step before the last step but I didn't know I was going to add the green felt ribbon until I was done. ;) It just didn't look finished so I sent a pic to Eileen from Eileen's Perpetually Busy and asked her what she thought.
She suggested adding the green ribbon. She was so right! It makes a big difference.
Anyway, just wrap the green ribbon around, making sure to hot glue in place.
Add the flowers and you are DONE!!!!!
A simple but elegant addition to your front door! :D One that you can use all spring AND summer if you want!
HAVE FUN CRAFTING!!!!!
