Spring fever has hit!
SO much I decided I needed a Spring Wreath for indoors.
I always have a wreath for my front door (I’ll show you that at the end of the week ) but I wanted to make one I could enjoy from inside the house!
I started with a burlap covered straw wreath that I already had from last Summer. I am very frugal with things like this and reuse any time I can. I don’t like to keep things the same so I like to buy items that I can change up to make look different depending on the season and how my decorating is changing.
I bought the burlap ribbon and just wrapped it around the straw wreath. Then I taped it into place using masking tape. It has been on there for almost a year and the tape is holding up just fine. I thought the tape would make it easier when I decided to do something different with the wreath.
The green striped ribbon are pieces leftover from my Christmas decorating but I checked Hobby Lobby this past weekend when I was there and they still have it! I love this shade of green. The ceramic bird had a long wire stem on it, I’m sure it was intended for inserting into a floral arrangement. I took wire cutters and snapped that off so that I could add the bird to my ribbon. I believe the Spring items were 30% off and the original cost was $3.99. If not I always have the 40% off 1 regular priced item option.
The wire cutters could only get so close to the end of the stem, which left a small piece sticking out. I didn’t want to take the chance on breaking the bird by trying to get any closer. No problem though, I just used a cream colored craft paint and it camouflaged the stem just fine. Then I added hot glue to the back and stuck it to the ribbon.
I love watching birds, I especially love to hear them sing.
I thought it would be perfect to add the spring wreath to a piece of Music Art I made.
Wait…I never showed you that did I…I’ll get that in a post soon!
Do you use wreath’s indoors?
I haven’t much in the past BUT I feel certain is going to change!
