I feel like it's time to decorate for Spring. However, every time I get my things together to start making something, a snow storm comes through. Two nights ago we got the heavy, wet snow dumped on us. It was certainly not like a January snow; where the snow is so fine it's just powder. And the air is so crisp, it hurts to breath. It was quite the opposite. We were playing outside the other day and it was almost too warm to move too quickly. Bryan had to ask me for a cup of ice water to combat the sweat dripping down his face from rolling giant snowballs through the yard.
So until I feel like Spring is truly on its way, I'm going to share with you the wreath I made last year. I just purchased a grapevine wreath that you can find at almost any craft store. This one was from Jo-Ann fabrics. You can get this size for $4.99 (but be sure to use a coupon)! The flowers are all made from felt and the ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby.
I really liked these particular colors because it could work all the way through Summer. I recently made a grapevine wreath with felt flowers for a good friend of mine for her housewarming party. I incorporated her new house number on the wreath with wooden numbers. I liked the way it turned out so much, that I think I will try to do something similar for myself this year.
I'll be back with a tutorial on how to make the felt flowers. It just takes some patience and some hot glue.
Less than 2 weeks until Spring! It's been a beautiful Winter here in Ohio. Many snowfalls. I just hope Mother Nature gets the memo and gives us some daffodils soon!
Until next time!
