Spring wreaths

Last week, in the middle of a snowstorm, I made a happy, cheery spring wreath. I guess I was trying to will my way out of winter.

I love the clean lines of the yarn wreaths in blogland.  So I used up an old skein and wrapped while I watched old Office episodes.




I raided the fabric scraps to make bright flower rosettes.




Then, the ribbon on THIS WREATH from 2010 was bugging me, so I used some green scraps to update it as well.




So much better.


As always, I have no original ideas.  My inspiration for these were from this one:




and this one:



and this one:

So the question is, should I add a little pennant welcome banner to the top of the yellow one? I totally love it as it is.  Wondering if it would be better or worse with a banner added?


Cost:  $4 for the straw wreath form.  $1 for the white flowers.  Yarn, fabric, buttons and ribbon were from my stash.

Maybe I should call this blog "making something out of nothing."

  2. All those fabric rosettes and flowers you made are awesome! I think both wreaths look great! Maybe you should make a little pennant that says "Spring" for your yellow wreath? Adorable how it is though too. :)
