When I woke up Saturday morning, a “ting,” when off in my head and I realized that I
had forgotten to take down my Easter Wreath and replace it with a Spring Wreath.
Wreaths are sort of my “thing,” so how could I forget?
I know now what it was.
I didn’t really want to take the time away from my garden to be inside.
Can you blame me…
So I have a 20 minute wreath makeover that streamlined the entire process.
It involves using those wonderful floral garlands that you can find at any craft store,
or discount store too.
Then wrapping and swirling and whirling them all about until well you have an amazingly
easy wreath to add Spring zing to your front door.
It really is a no-fail project and aren’t those just so fun!
You know by now that I am just a little bit obsessed with Lemons this year, I recently made
I have added lemons to my Real working kitchen-vignette.
I am still eyeing those Lemon Trees at the garden center too.
That’s a whole lot of lemons!
Well, you see this project all begins with a wreath from the Autumn retreat home tour,
those whirly, wispy, colorful floral garlands, lemons and just a little bit of time.
1. Grapevine wreath
2. Faux flowers
3. Floral garland
5. Hot glue gun and sticks
1. Use a new or recycled wreath.
2. If using a recycled wreath from a different season remove all those seasonal stems and bow.
Set aside and save in a plastic bag for another use.
3. Gather up all of your supplies including that wonderful whirly garland.
4. Heat up the glue gun to glue those bright and beautiful lemons on your wreath.
5. Wrap, tuck, and glue until it looks good to you.
Hang the finished wreath on your door!
Coming up this week and for the next 8 weeks will be a step by step guide on how to plan
an Art and Craft retreat at your home.
Yes indeed, I am hosting a Texas Bloggers Art/Craft Retreat and one that I hope will
become a yearly tradition.
