I’m totally behind on my wreath game. I normally would have a non-Christmas winter wreath up from New Year’s to spring, but that just wasn’t happening this year. I’ve had my “Noel” wreath up since the weekend after Thankgiving! The good thing is that I’ve had time to get ahead and put together this spring wreath DIY. Despite the fact that it’s been dreary and rainy (Is it April?! I’m confused.), I’ve been feeling like spring! Bring on the sunshine and pretty flowers. Nature isn’t quite ready to give me the pretty flowers at this point, so I took matters into my own hands and incorporated them in this spring wreath DIY. Happy crafting!
I was so excited when one of my best friends, Rachel, asked me to get together with her last week to make a holiday wreath! Both of our work schedules and the traffic we’ve seen in our respective positions has been crazy the last few weeks, and it’s hard for us to coordinate our work schedules. I know I can’t be the only one feeling like my social life has been lacking due to holiday preparations/stress and a busy work life! Not only does making a holiday wreath get you excited for the season, but it’s an easy activity to fit in with a friend after working all day. Get out your ribbon and glue gun and create with us!
Fall Wreath Tutorial
After a DISASTER of a summer wreath attempt, I decided to give it another go for the fall season. I’m glad I did, because I’m really enjoying this finished product! The options for decorating outdoors while living in an apartment are very limited (can’t obstruct any of the outdoor walkway areas), and I rely on wreaths to give our entrance some personality. This particular design incorporates flowers of the season, giving dahlias the spotlight with a few sunflowers for good measure. The gold ribbon gives it some subtle metallic shimmer to catch the eye and makes the otherwise bare areas of the wreath more interesting. Best of all, it only takes one trip to the craft store and roughly an hour to put together!
