A Spring Wreath

The cold, grey and dull winter is really starting to give me a case of the "winter blues", so when a coworker approached me with a bag of craft flowers I was pretty excited to remind myself that spring is coming and we will have sunshine, warmth and colour in our lives again soon. And when that happens, I'm going to be ready with a beautiful wreath on my front door. 


What you'll need: 
Twigs
Craft flowers
Ribbon
Wire
Pliers
Hot glue
Any other small decorative details you'd like to add




What to do: 
1. Use the wire to stagger and attach the twigs together until it's long enough to create a ring 










2. Attach the largest flowers by weaving stems and tying with wire
3. Wrap with ribbon 
4. Fill in the gaps by glueing the smaller flowers and other small decorative details.

That's it.  Now all we need is for Mother Nature to get the hint. 

How are you willing the arrival of Spring?
