Which means: Spring Decor!
I've had a winter wreath with an ice blue ribbon on the front door for over a month and a half, and it just wasn't cheery to me anymore walking up the front steps. SO... I made this one today:
Total cost? $6
Here's what I did, and what tools I used.
First, I started with four 6-flower bunches of yellow irises from the Dollar Store. I also purchased 3 bunches of lime green pom-pom greens, but ended up only using one bunch.
I cut the floral stems off the main stem bunch, and was left with 6 flowers with 6" stems from each bunch. I used a total of 24 flowers and 6 pom poms.
I laid the flowers out on the wreath form (that I got for $1) and made sure I distributed the flowers evenly.
To attach the flowers I though the wired stems would easily wrap around the wreath form. Instead, I ended up using small snips of beading wire to attach them to the wreath form.
After, I placed the pom pom greens around the outside, and wired them on.
Then, hang on your still-needs-to-be-painted front door. Love it, and so cheery! I love the bright yellow, and of course, popped it up on the door already. :)
