I’ve been wanting to make a spring
wreath ever since I took down the
Christmas wreath. Then I got
motivated, when a few days
ago, Kristen fromKristen’s Creations
showed a wonderful
tutorial on how she made her
fabulous mesh wreath.
I went to Michael’s
to buy all my
When you get to the last photo you will see a photo of my front door, it’s very tall door, so I choose a grapevine wreath that had an oblong shape to better fill the space vertically. I just happen to stumble on this welcome bunny sign. I’m not crazy about the colors that someone decided to paint it, but I purchased it anyways with a 50% off coupon.
I don’t think I picked up the
same tulle that Kristen uses.
Her tulle seamed to have body
and stiffness. The tulle I used
was from the wedding section
and is soft and limp.
I cut 2 foot lengths and tied them
around the base of the wreath.
Next, I added the cute little garland. The end of the garland had a loop at one end, so I thought I could poke the loop to the back of the wreath form and use that to hang my wreath!
Next, I decided to repaint the bunny with some lovely spring colors. After I painted, I need to add the “welcome” back. I was going to use my Cricut to either cut vinyl or a stencil, but at 1 o’clock in the morning, I decided to take the plunge and free hand the letters with black paint. Aughhh…… now I would have been willing to pay full price.
I couldn’t find any pretty pastel color eggs either. I bought a bag of yellow speckled eggs and hand painted them the colors I wanted!
This would have been a really quick project if I didn’t have to customize the store bought pieces.
I let the paint dry and went to
bed! First thing the next
morning I hot glued the eggs
and the bunny in place.
Michael’s had these really
cute butterflies on sale! They
have a little clip on the back,
making it super easy to add to
I tied a few small pieces of bright pink ribbon, that I had on hand,
to add a POP of color!
I love how it turned out! Thanks Kristen for the inspiration.
