Bright Flowers Spring Wreath

000_0100I did a bit of planting today…I am not going all out this year like I have in the past because I hope to get the house painted and I didn’t want to move all the deck containers and plants.  000_0099I love these hot pink zinnias I found today!  And this wind chime is a great blue and yellow green.000_0097I have had this little grapevine wreath that needed decorating and this little spot on my bedroom wall that needed a little wreath…so today inspired by these colors I made this wreath!100_0694It is made from wool felt, some crocheted flowers, and buttons from my button bin.  I cut the leaves from three colors to create a little more interest and used buttons or felted balls for the centers.  100_0697The flowers are all colors, blues, yellows, pinks and purples with the green leaves. 100_0698I think the pink one in the bottom right of the next picture is my favorite…it has a red button center. 100_0699The wreath looks perfect in the spot I made it for!  The picture on the bottom left I got from Target for $2.51 and the picture on the right is the MU campus where I graduated with my BSN a few years back.  My niece Jess took that picture and it looks great in black and white!100_0688So, that is my project for the weekend.  I have a ton of sewing to do and I need to do a post about the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day which starts May 23!  Stay tuned for that post.  100_0693I haven’t yet decided what I am going to give away, but will be making that decision in the next 24 hours.

I link to these great parties!
