You know how much I love wreaths and I often find a good excuse to make yet another one! Spring and Easter sound like a good excuse to me! What do you think? Well, I’m sure you agree!
Today I’ll share with you two wreaths, inspired by the beauty of the natural world at spring!
I bought this polystyrene wreath some weeks ago and I was waiting for the right time to get creative with it! The right time was yesterday.
I used the patterns from three different paper napkins .I loved these red hens , the beige and white stripes , the little hearts and birds. For this wreath , I I used one of my favourite craft techniques : decoupage. I finished it off with two coats of varnish to make it look more shiny and time resistant!
The glue and varnish I use are special products , used for decoupage and you can find them at all art and crafts shops . This is an easy technique that gives you ideal results at almost no time and with just a little effort.
The second wreath , I’m sharing with you today was made two years ago. This wreath is the ‘house’ of a cute , little bird I made using some favourite pieces of fabric I had at home .
I quite like this critter. It is sweet and seems happy J!
I hang the bird from the wreath using some ‘ribbons’ made from the same fabric as the bird and added a small bunch of fresh lavender to give some colour and its delicate smell to my wreath. The lavender has dried out but it still has some smell and I adore its colour and presence. I love lavender!
I hope I’ve inspired you to make your own spring wreaths and enjoy them not only in spring time , but all year round!
To those of us who celebrate Easter this Sunday, Happy Easter ! The weather today was wintry but they say Easter Sunday will be sunny and quite warm.
Till next time, my love to you all,
