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:

Wreath: 4.99

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.
