I stopped into Joann’s to pick up a grapevine wreath and a few flowers to make a new wreath for the front door in preparation for Easter. I knew exactly what I wanted and had a vision already in my mind. No need to browse. Just in and out. Yeah right!
While strolling down the isle looking for the grapevine wreaths, I happened upon the cutest wreath-ish thing with chicken wire. Plans changed in an instant! Not only was it crazy cute, it was 50% off ($4.99) and I had a 20% off everything coupon. Happy dancing in the isles.
So here is the plain wreath form, along with some of the other things I rounded up from my stash to add on to it.
Let’s get to assembling. First I used wire cutters to separate the small bunch of white flowers and shortened up the stem on the green ones. Then I layered them together along the left side and until I had them how I liked them. I attached them to the chicken wire in a couple of places with small zip ties.
To cover up the bottom stems I used a small piece of ribbon and secured it with jute twine.
After that was secure, I tied the ribbon into a bow and secured that with another zip tie.
Having chicken wire made me want to get out my little clothes pins, but what to clip on? I decided on a little bird nest that I dug out of our nature basket. The kids have gathered nature stuff for years and we always keep in in a certain basket. I thought a little nest waiting for some eggs would be cute and adding a welcome sign seemed inviting.
I hot glued the nest and the wood sign to clothes pins and clipped them on.
Lastly, I painted a wooden C with white acrylic paint. Once dry I tied it on with jute.
This is a super cute wreath and so easy to make.
I like that I can easily change out the clip on decor on the wreath. I would love for you to share your spring wreaths in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by!
