Spring Wreath

Not that I'm bitter or anything, but I totally got ripped off this winter.  We didn't have any real snow... I promised my son that there would be at least one snow day this year, because we ALWAYS HAVE AT LEAST ONE, and this year we got nothing.

OK, so I am bitter.

At any rate, spring came early this year.  So, I did what any crafter would do... I made a wreath.

I found this pin on Pinterest and then gathered my supplies.

I had some trouble finding the green Fun Fur.  Michael's had Fun Fur, but not in green... I scored it at Jo-Ann's Fabrics.

I wrapped the Fun Fur around the wreath mold... I think the original creator in the pin I used must have used two of the packs of Fun Fur because hers was pretty fluffy... I prefer my lawns mowed nicely, so I just used one pack.  After that, I poured out my flower embellishments, found at Michael's on clearance...

And then I stuck a pearlized straight pin through the middle...

And stuck it into the wreath.  Easy-schmeasy.

And of course, whenever I can, I utilize child labor...

And we just kept a-pinning.

Why, it looks just like an English garden.  As if I'd know.

I added a happy little sign for the middle and put it up!  I may have gotten ripped off on winter, but I'm going to enjoy spring until summer smacks me in the face mid-April.

Happy spring!

  1. What a cute wreath! That green stuff really does look like grass on there. I don't know if I've ever seen those little flower things either. You made me laugh about summer in mid-April. It seems that we're headed that way, doesn't it?

  2. Cute wreath! I feel ripped off by the lack of snow too. The rest of the UK got loads, here in Cornwall... nada!

  3. I like the less fluffy wreath too. Cute and simple, thanks for sharing.!

  4. LOVE IT! Very refreshing! Just what spring brings!

  5. I really like it! And it so much reminds of spring!

  6. Oh wow, I really like this too. I love the fur and the tiny delicate flowers. Great job - so glad you shared at our party.

  7. Love the freshly mowed version!

  8. Such a cute wreath - thanks for sharing!!
