It’s craft time!
Today I made a Spring Wreath for my front door. I scoured Pinterest to try and find something Spring-ish or Easter-ish but I didn’t see anything I liked so then I thought why not just walk around Michaels and see what pops out at me. So, this past weekend the kids and I headed to the store and I started with a twig looking wreath that I was going to attach some flowers, but I decided I didn’t like the look of fake flowers. So I thought maybe I would just attach some Easter eggs and some greenery, but that just said “blah” to me. Then I walked past the end cap of one of the aisles and saw all the burlap rolls and thought why not just arrange a bunch of different colors to make it look fluffy…yes, that is a technical crafting word…fluffy.
I started out with a green 12″ Styrofoam ring, four different colors of spring burlap colors and a bigger natural colored burlap to wrap around the ring. Then I saw the flower clips and thought I could attach them but I didn’t know what color to get so I got all that matched the burlap. The small burlap colors were $2.99 each, the ring was either 6 or $7.99? Each flower was .99 and the bigger burlap I think was $6.99 and I had the 20% off coupon from the newspaper so I think I paid about $30 for all of it, but I am taking some things back so this craft may have ended up being about $19 and an hour of my time.
I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do or how I was going to do it, but my first thought was to hot glue it. After I wrapped the ring in the brown burlap, I hot glued it to stay in place. Then I started to try and wrap the other colors, but it just wasn’t working out the way I had hoped, so I got out my straight pins and started to just pin the smaller burlap all around the ring with no pattern in mind. I just went with it. After I was done, all I added was a big burlap bow at the bottom and I was done! I didn’t need one roll of burlap, and I definately didn’t need the flowers! I think it turned out pretty good for not really having a plan or anything in mind. Today I have a unique burlap Spring wreath hanging on the door but we are still waiting for spring weather!
