DIY Spring Wreath




Hello Loves!

I can't believe it's going to be SPRING soon! Yes, I know, it's been "Spring" for a while now, but I think we can all agree that this Spring has been a little slow to start. I'm so excited for the warm weather and all of the plants waking up from their winter nap. With the flowers starting to bloom, I've got a few projects in mind that I think you all will enjoy.

The BIG project is our little raised garden. A couple years back, Christian built us a small 11'x3' raised garden so that we could enjoy some fresh vegetables and herbs on our apartment patio. We are going to provide regular updates to show how we get from seed to storage to table. This year we are going to focus on making some good pasta sauces, with San marzano tomatoes, basil and garlic.

We are also planning several trips around the state to go hiking and getting more back to nature.

Of course, I'm also going to provide a few crisp, fresh springtime recipes to get this season started right!

I also recently celebrated my birthday and the weather happened to take a pleasant turn while my husband and I enjoyed an extended weekend, which brought with it some delightful cupcakes from the Flying Cupcake here in Indy. Their Chocolate Ganache cupcake was absolutely awesome!

I turned the big 3-0 this year and I'm going to share with you what my goals are for my 30's and how I plan to reach them.

As a celebration of warm winds finally finding their way to central Indiana, I decided to take apart my Christmas wreath and rebuild it. I'm a big believer of using what is already available to you instead of buying more things to add to your pile. We are almost completely out of storage space in our little apartment so I made this beautiful wreath using nearly everything from my collection. As I said before, I already had the wreath from Christmas. The magnolias were hidden all the way in a dark corner of our closet. Even the wreath hook pulled double duty for this decor piece. All that was needed was to unscrew the reindeer from it before putting everything together.

The final touch came in the form of the 'E' that hubby and I picked up from Michael's while we were out for my birthday. With our last initial glued to the wreath, the total cost of this project was less than $5! Just in case you are interested in making something similar, I'll link everything that I used below:

Wreath - Hobby Lobby 
White Magnolias - Michaels 
Pink Magnolias - Michaels 
Intials - Michaels

I used a hot glue gun to adhere the 'E' to the wreath. The magnolias were just woven into the wreath and trimmed as needed to fit. In order to make sure that my work didn't come flying off of the front door whenever it was opened or closed, I wrapped some floral wire around the wreath and the hook to keep everything nice and tight. And that's about it. Very simple. Very little mess. And if you're like us, you'll get some compliments from the delivery gentlemen when you sign for your pizza!

I hope that this simple and pretty wreath inspires and helps you to create wonderful decor with things you already have at home. Not only does it help you save a little cash, but it will also help you to reduce the clutter in your storage spaces. If you enjoyed this post, then please share and leave a comment! Have a wonderful Spring!
