Quick & Easy Spring Wreath

2013 02 26_0553

I pulled together a quick and easy Spring wreath using the dollar store wreath that I had used for Valentine’s Day.  You can see that post here.  At that time, I had just tucked in the florals and tied on some script wrapping paper.  This made it easy to take apart so that I could use the wreath again.  Here it is stripped of its Valentine’s Day finery.

I had bought a garland of this hanging greenery last year and used a little bit of it in a few other projects.  I still had a lot left over so I decided to incorporate it into this wreath.  I cut a couple of the longer pieces and after tucking an end into the top, wrapped it around the wreath.  I took a second piece and started at the other side, tucked it into the top next to where the first one was and wrapped again.

Not so much that it covers the grapevine, but just enough so that I have the grapevine and the greenery showing.  You could leave it just like this at this point, but I thought it needed just a little bit more.

I had a bag of plastic eggs that I got from Michael’s {I believe} on clearance. It was a good size bag of eggs with some raffia stuck to the bottom of each egg.  I cut the raffia off, figured out placement, and hot glued the eggs onto the wreath.

I might look to see if I can find a little wood or metal sign with a Spring theme to wire to the inside, but I don’t think it’s too bad for using what I already had.

This turned out sooo cute!

I am so ready for spring this year. The evergreens are dead frozen in my urns outside and I cannot get them out.

Worse yet, the evergreen garland around my front entry has not one but TWO bird nests in it and I do not have the nerve to take it down and disrupt the two little bird families!!!

I can't really decorate for spring here until the evergreens go.
I am so bummed. Would love to do something just like this, Kathy.

Looks great!

Very cute! I love the pretty nature inspired wreaths like yours as opposed to the heavily decorated ones. I need to make my own with garland like you did. I can't find anything around here that I like ready made.

Hi Kathy,
Your wreath is wonderful. I love the spring feel is gives with the garland and the grapevine. Adding the eggs really is the perfect touch on your door. I love that garland and I used the same one for a kitchen chandelier to give it a spring garden look.
Happy Decorating.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
