DIY Spring Wreath

I'm so excited to show you the newest addition to my front door - my bright and sunny, flower covered, super pretty Spring Wreath!

I'll admit that this project was a bit time consuming but I'm so happy with the final result. I started with an old straw wreath that my mom didn't want anymore and I covered it with plastic wrap so the straw wouldn't poke through. Then I wrapped it with fluffy white yarn.

Next I made what felt like a million flowers. There are three types. The fabric rosettes were made using this tutorial from NatSprat. The felt flowers were made using this tutorial from I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar.

Last I made my little banner using triangles of fabric, letters that I cut out with my Silhouette and some pink ribbon. I just mod podged it all together in an attempt at weather proofing - we'll see if it works!

The last step involved a lot of hot glue to put it all together and tying on a ribbon and it was done! The best part is that I made it on the super cheap. The wreath was free, the yarn was about $3, the scraps of fabric for the rosettes and banner were free (also from my mom) and I spent $2.50 on sheets of felt. Not bad!

It makes me smile every time I pull in the driveway :)
