it's really anything but spring in upstate NY
but a girl can hope can't she??
maybe if i do something way out of character
and put my Easter wreath up waaaaay before Easter
spring will come early
cause i'll be ready
then maybe spring will be ready...
it's all in the mind.
so remember this neutral fall wreath i made last year?
well i made a spring version!
for directions, see my original post here
this time i wrapped the styrofoam shape with moss
actually moss on a roll! i found it in the floral department at Joann's
first i covered the shape with green felt, so the white of the styrofoam wouldn't show through
i cut moss strips to size and glued them down with hot glue
making sure to cover all the empty spaces with little pieces here and there
(i didn't wind it around the back, since this stuff was pricey
and i was trying to not have to run back to the store for more!)
once done, i hot glued some wide grosgrain ribbon to the back of the top and
then hot glued the frame (5x7) to the ribbon tails that hung down in the center
(yeah ... um... this took a ton of hot glue)
the simple, to the point printable is from Kelsey @ Tattered & Inked
and it comes in a few different colors too :)
add some butterflies or flowers!
i love white anything
(which is weird, since i love everything in color)
but these butters were from Joanns as well
hope you like this spring version of my crazy shaped wreath :)
still organizing by the way ... will i ever be done?
much loves ♥
