My door has been showing off a Valentine’s wreath WAY too long.
On my last trip to Dollar Tree I came across this wreath… 18 inches…
much larger than the usual foam wreaths I’ve found there. So I thought I’d make a cute Spring wreath with it.
I had a little bit of burlap leftover from the son’s burlap curtain add-on and my burlap flower pin for my sweater pillow. There wasn’t enough to wrap it around, but I thought maybe cutting into strips would work. I made each strip about a 1/2 inch thick. Then I just tied the strips around the wreath.
I used even small pieces… I just tied the strip of burlap around a couple pieces of the twigs, verses the whole wreath…
I started to run out of burlap before I filled in the wreath, so I searched my scraps and thought my sweater scraps, leftover from my sweater pillows might work great. So I just cut those into 1/2 inches strips too.
This is how it looked…
it needed another layer… shells!
So I just hot glued some shells in clusters around the wreath.
But I wasn’t finished there… I wanted to monogram it. So I took a piece of cardboard and cut it into a “C”. I took my glue gun and twine and wrapped the twine around the “C”.
Here it is hanging on our front door….
I love how it pops on our black door…
Do you think it’s too high?
I love having shells on my door… a promise of beach days in the future… maybe next week as the kiddos are on Easter break.
