Spring is finally here and I think it’s going to stick around a while. Spring is a time of rebirth and starting fresh. We are ready for starting fresh and putting the last 6 months behind us, of finding our new “normal” and get started figuring out where we go from here.
With all that has been going on, I have missed my “playing” as Mike calls it. It’s one of those things that makes me happy and keeps me smiling. Shan loves Gerber daisies and bright colors so I thought I would make her something. Because, well it makes me happy to make her smile. I know the whole Mom thing.
This is what I came up with when going through the attic. ( Have I mentioned I LOVE having an attic)
- Square Wreath Form
- Burlap Ribbon ($1.00 a roll at Dollar Tree)
- Different colors of Gerber Daisies
- My trusty glue gun
That’s it. Pretty simple
It was just a question of wrapping the form in the burlap ribbon. I did take my time and make sure I had the ribbon evenly wrapped because well, if it weren’t it would drive me nuts. 🙂 The corners were a little tricky. You can see where the ribbon was trying to bunch up so I did have to play with it a bit.
Then came the fun part, choosing which way to place the flowers:
So I did what I always do…….sent the pictures to Shan and let her decide. After the decision was made it was just a matter of gluing them onto the burlap. I’m pretty sure that my finger prints are forever changed because of all the times I’ve burned them with a glue gun………….
This is the one she decided on:
Such an easy way to bring some Spring to the front porch while we wait for it to be warm enough to start planting 😉
