{BLOOM} Spring Wreath

Howdy all!  Well, I just couldn’t bring myself to make an Easter wreath since I could only keep it up for a couple of weeks, so I made this lovely Spring wreath!

Don’t you just LOVE the  simplicity and colors?  Okay, honestly, if you’ve been following for long you’ll know I’m a fan of simplicity especially when it comes to wreaths.

First I chose some great scrapbook paper & chipboard letters B-L-O-O-M.

I turned the paper over to the back and the letters as well.  Then I traced each letter on to the paper of my chosen pattern.

I carefully cut the letters out and then mod podged them to the chipboard letters.  You’ll see that the paper letters are slightly larger than the chipboard letters.  That’s perfect!

After the mod podge has dried… using sandpaper sand the edges in a downward motion.

You’ll end up with these lovely distressed looking letters.  Aren’t they fabulous?

Take a foam wreath and paint it the color of your burlap {or close to} just in case there is any peeking through.  Let dry.  Using hot glue and strips of burlap wrap the entire wreath in burlap. Once you are done also use hot glue to attach the letters to the wreath.

I added some fun paper flowers with button centers.  So adorable!  I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this wreath!

Don’t forget to pin away!

Have a great day and Happy Spring!

Oh my GOSH, do I love this wreath?!?!?  Yup, I most certainly do!

I took my Valentine’s wreath and turned it into this.  Although it’s not overtly St Patrick’s Day colors, it was inspired by the holiday.  I have a feeling it will make it’s way back to my front door in May/June after my Spring one comes down.  I really does look “every day”.  Continue reading
