Spring is finally here! It was more anticipated than ever before since we had a "real" winter in Houston, which is rare.
I started this modern wreath with an embroidery hoop which I picked up at Michael's, some ranunculus stems (I had a few leaves from a wreath party I had last year, but picked up one more for the blooms), and one stem of greenery.
Of course, Fluffy had to help and approve first. I also got these pretty pink spray florals which I used elsewhere.
I started by taking the embroidery hoop outside and painting it a metallic gold. Let it dry until Sophia's next nap and then the fun began! :D
First I split and glued on the greenery, using floral tape to hold down some especially wild pieces. A few leaves fell off, so I simply chose a good spot and glued them on, too.
Next I cut off the ranunculus blooms and stuck them on in the bottom center of the wreath. Once again, Fluffy was there to assist.
Fast forward a few days....and I cut out a sign that says "hello spring" in this super fun calligraphy font on the laser printer. You could buy letters that say "Hello" or "Spring" at Michael's if you don't have access to a laser device. I thought about painting this piece gold, but ended up loving the natural maple wood tone.
Next, I placed this cutout where I wanted it and used clear fishing wire to tie it to the top of the wreath so it hangs.
And, ta-daaaa, it was ready to hang!
Let me know in the comments if you try a modern spring wreath. :D
