"Spring"-ing out a New Wreath!

Last Friday we had about 4 inches of snow here...and tomorrow they are forecasting another winter storm watch and are predicting about 5-6 more inches of snow.

I am NOT  a person that likes winter...and we will be travelling south in the next couple of weeks to find the sun and some warmer temperatures...in the meantime, I wanted to add a little SPRING to my home.

I purchased some flowers at the dollar store...



and then I took apart the Valentine's wreath that I had made for our front door...This grapevine wreath really has seen many re-inventions!



I searched through my stash of scarves and came up with a pretty orange and pink polka-dotted one.  For me scarves are so much easier than ribbon, and they are a great item to recycle in all sorts of decorating projects...either in a wreath or as a table runner.


  I added the flowers to the wreath along with the scarf, just tucking them between the grapevine.  I never use glue to secure things because I am forever dismantling the wreath to re-use again.


I then tucked back in some of the white roses that were used on the Valentine's wreath as well and hung it on my front door.



Its a great pop of spring colour and gives me a little hope that maybe the snow will be gone soon and spring weather is just around the corner...Here's a closer look!



Here's hoping the weather is spring-like where you are!!!

  4. Hmmm. You're giving me a little inspiration to do something with the grapevine wreath lurking in my basement. You'd think I could concentrate on one project at a time! :)
