Spring Wreaths

I've been wanting to re-make my front door Spring wreaths since last year. After so long in the sun, the flower colors had faded. A few weeks ago, while at Michael's, I was looking through the flowers & came across some that I liked.

I prefer the main flowers to have a "fluffy", "large" bloom. Then I chose a smaller "accent" flower. I found the smallest flowers at home from a different shopping trip that never got used & liked the combination of colors. I wasn't sure if I was going to work the flowers all the way around the wreath or just around half of it, but I play with that as I go along. Once everything looks right to me, I use a hot glue gun to keep everything in place. Then I finish it off with a simple bow.
And since I have 2 front doors (don't know why), I had to make two. ;)



I hope to re-make the Summer wreaths next.....

What a beautiful wreath! I wish I had the creativity (outside of scrapbooking) to create things like that.

Gorgeous! I adore the colors - they look so pretty together. Reminds me that it's time to change out my wreath! :)
