One Wreath, Two Ways:  Easter to Spring Changeup

One Wreath, Two Ways: Easter to Spring Changeup

Hey there friends, this weekend we had some beautiful Spring weather here in VA, so I got inspired to transform our Easter wreath into a Spring wreath:

EastertoSpringWreathChangeup

 

 

That’s the beauty of using a grapevine wreath…it’s really easy to change it up.     All you have to do is insert new stuff and you’ve got a whole new look!

This wreath was super easy and only took me about 15 minutes to make, so if you’ve got Spring fever and want to make your own wreath, read on for how I made it…

gather these supplies
Spring Wreath Supplies

  1. Silk flowers (I used some I had on hand)
  2. Burlap bow (on sale for $4.99 from Michael’s)
  3. Grapevine wreath (I used the wreath I had decorated for Easter)

Since I was using the wreath I made for Easter, the first thing I had to do was remove the eggs and nest from the wreath.  As I mentioned in the tutorial for the Easter wreath, I hot-glued felt to the back of the eggs and strung floral wire through the felt so they could be easily removed, so all I had to do now was untwist the wires to remove them.

I liked the greenery and D letter that I had used on the Easter wreath so I left those on.   Next step was just adding the Spring flowers and I simply stuck the stem into the wreath.

After inserting the 1st bunch of flowers, I added the 2nd bunch.

Then all that was left was to add the bow.  I was going to make a bow, but then I saw this cute burlap bow at Michael’s ON SALE FOR $4.99!!!  The bow came with a gold covered wire too!  SAH-WEET!!!  So all I had to do is  wrap the wire around the wreath and twist it closed in the back.

So in about 15 minutes, my former Easter wreath has been all Spring-i-fied!

Doesn’t get much easier than that, folks!
