Spring Time Wreath

It is definitely Spring around here.  We have had such great weather.  On one of those nice spring days, I couldn’t help but make my entry way look a little bit more like spring.

Spring Wreath (6 of 6)

I decided I needed a new wreath.  I searched all over my pinterest boards and married a few ideas together.  This is what I came up with:

Spring Wreath (3 of 6)

I already had the letter S.  It was a metal S that was tired and needed a new look.  I added some green moss to it.  I bought the moss in a sheet instead of individual pieces which proved to be so much easier.  I attached it to the S with spray adhesive.

I had a straw wreath laying around in my attic that I picked up at a thrift store for 50 cents.  I covered it in strips of burlap.  Once it was covered, I attached the mossy S with my glue gun.

I picked up these fun flowers at the hob lob and laid them out just how I liked.  Then I added them to my wreath also with my glue gun.  I had some left over fabric that I used as my ribbon to hang it from the door.

It was such a simple project, and made such a difference. 

I had enough flowers left to add some to this pot.  It added just the right amount of spring to my entry way.

I swept out the entry way, and wiped all the furniture down.  The pollen had left such an awful mess. 

With our house on the market, I wanted to make the right first impression. 

… and I think it helped.  Our house was under contract in 6 days.  I can’t believe that this house is almost no longer ours.


I love this house.

I love my entry way.

I love making new spring wreaths for my entry way.

I will miss you house.
