It is officially Spring! Which means, I wanted to brighten up my house. A few years back, I made an easy spray painted wreath. But, I was sick of it. I wanted something bright and fresh.
I went to Michael’s to try to get some inspiration, and left with items to make an inexpensive wreath (they were selling their pre-made ones for $50-$75, heck no!).
Here is a run-down on what I spent:
Peony Stem: $3.59×3
Wood Chalkboard: $1.39
Ribbon in Wildberry: $.50
Ghirardelli Chocolate square: $.49 (quietness this received…priceless)
Total with taxes was around $19. Much easier to swallow than $50.
I started by cutting the stems off of the Peony’s with wire cutters. I kept it long enough so I could stick it into the wreath. It took a few tries to get the placement right, but it was easy to remove and try again. Then I cut a few of the green leaves off of the stems, and stuck them throughout the flowers (this was a last-minute decision, but I love how it looks).
Then, I used the thin ribbon to hang the chalkboard from the top of the wreath. I love that I can change the message throughout the season.
And that is it! Easy! It took about 15 minutes to throw together. I am loving the bright pink color.
