Spring Cheer

Well, a few weeks ago I finally got around to taking down the Winter wreath from our door.  I know, I know, it was well past the time to do so! :)  When I did remove the wreath, I felt like our door looked so empty and sad.  I guess it is kind of strange to call a door sad, but it was very clear that something was missing and  I just had to do something about that!  I scrolled through a few ideas on Pinterest until I had a general idea of what I wanted and headed to the local craft shop to gather the materials.  Here is the end result; what do you think?

I was so excited to finish this project that I neglected to take any pictures of the whole process, but it was very simple (whoohoo!) and I think it turned out nice, bright and cheery.  The door will no longer be lonely and sad! :)

All it took was a styrofoam circle/wreath (found in the floral department at the craft shop), 2 rolls of grosgrain ribbon (the kind with lines in it - not the satin finish) and a bouquet of fake flowers.  With the combination of sales and coupons, I bought the supplies for about $9 and have extra ribbon and flowers for a future venture.

Taking my handy, dandy glue gun, I started to wrap the ribbon around the wreath, hot gluing on the back side for every few loops.  Once that was completed, I popped the head of the flower of each of the stem and hot glued the flower onto the wreath.  To hang it, I took a piece of the ribbon and placed it horizontally on the back to that the hook could just slide through.  Told you it was easy! :)

I love how something so simple can really change the appearance of our whole house!
