A Simple Spring Wreath Tutorial

springwreath21

In honor of the First Day of Spring, I thought we’d pause the retreat series to celebrate the occasion with a lovely spring wreath. Happy Spring and Happy Crafting.

A
h, springtime. Birds are chirping, buds are emerging, and if you’re where I am, sleet is encrusting the earth with a reminder that winter hasn’t quite given up her hold.

In an effort to ring in spring regardless of the temperature outside, I recently crafted a wreath to adorn my front door. Until my garden blooms with actual flowers, I will happily settle for some handmade fabric and ribbon ones, nestled in verdant-yet-faux moss and topped with a vintage button from the collection I seem to be growing–and promising myself I will actually use.

Set it all in a rustic grapevine wreath and it’s sure to bring a smile and a promise of new life whenever I open the door.

Happy Spring!
