I know we are still about a month away from Spring, but I’m ready to say good-bye to Winter. We’ve had more rain this year than I can remember in the last decade. One good thing to come from all the rain is the beautiful green hills everywhere. And my plants are getting plenty of watering without me having to do it.
Even though it’s technically not Spring yet, I’m getting the house ready. I found these mini grapevine garlands at the local craft store and they fit perfectly on my little stand. And since I already had a ton of succulents die cut and ready to go, I made a mini succulent wreath.
The stand also came from a local craft store and I added the hook to it so I could hang my wreath. These wreaths are super easy to make. I hot glued some fake moss to the wreath and then hot glued each of the plants and flowers to the wreath.
When I make something like this, I do lay out my plants before I start gluing them down. I like to have things balanced so I want to make sure I have the correct sizes ready to go. I started with the large plant in the center and then work my way out, making sure to balance out the sizes and colors of the flowers. The Spring banner in the center is tied on using some of our linen thread. I add a dab of hot glue to the knot to make sure it stays in place.
I did use a couple retired products on this project: Little Letters Dies, mini silver brads, and 1/16th” punch to make holes for the brads. If you don’t have them, you could easily substitute with something similar.
Are you ready to say good-bye to Winter too? Keeping my fingers crossed that the rain is just about done. I have my capris and sandals all ready to go!
