A Simple Easy Spring Wreath

Simple Easy Spring Wreath

You probably didn't know this... heck, I didn't even realize this. I have never had a spring wreath on my front door. Seriously, I can't ever remember having one. 😳  For Pete's sake, I'm a blogger and I've never had a spring wreath hanging beautifully on my front door? Lori, don't you think it's time for a wreath on the front door?

Well, that's all changed!

Here it is!!

A Simple Easy Spring Wreath!

My First Spring Wreath Ever!

This is kind of a big thing for me... I've lived here almost 8 years... Geesh! Now, I don't have to have a "naked" front door. 😊

I saw that AC Moore had their flowers 50% off. I had some flowers in my stash, but I wanted some "statement" flowers. My front door is a bit of a distance from the street and I wanted to be able to tell there were flowers on it.

I also picked up a big wreath at Hobby Lobby for 40% off. Hubby says, "Oh, you picked up some branches at the store?" I said, "No, I picked up a grapevine wreath." He says, "Oh, so you paid someone to wrap those branches into a wreath..." Funny... Ha Ha... He's such the comedian. 😜

I fell in love with those magnolia blooms. I knew they would look beautiful and give it the 'pow'💥it needed.

I had good intentions of using my glue gun to secure everything, but as I got going, it just all seemed to stay in place. So, I didn't bother. We'll see how well it holds together.  I don't use my front door a whole lot, so it should be fine.

Making a wreath is sort of like painting a picture. I really wasn't sure what direction it was going to go, but I was praying it would "flow", and it did!

Here's some progress. Basically, I separated the stems by snipping them with my nippers, and stuffing the stems here and there.

At first, I only added 3 magnolia blooms, but I realized soon enough that wasn't enough for some that💥 I was looking for!

It really didn't take me that long to put it together... maybe an hour. Why did I wait so long???

I love how the white and purple pops on the door. It came out sooo pretty!

My photography skills have slipped since I had shoulder surgery. (You can read about that here if you want.) I've been taking all my pictures using my iPhone. But this time I thought I'd use my camera... Ummm... I should have used the tripod. So many photos came out blurry. I guess my shoulder is still a bit shaky holding it up.

I just love how it looks on the front door! 😍

I still can't believe how well that front porch mat has held up! I painted that thing 3 years ago? I was going to throw it away, but I thought maybe some paint will spruce it up. It has really held up you can see how I did that in Trash to Wow! Okay, I just looked at that post... it has faded some, but still it looks pretty good for 3 years. 👍

I took a picture with the front glass door closed, but there is so much glare it never looks good...

See what I mean. Oh well, I'm so happy with this!
