Front Door Wreath

While I was in Colorado my niece Jess had a few crafty things for me to do for her.  Seems she has been rather busy with this little mister…photo (3)

So, we headed off to JoAnns to see what we could find!  We did find this sparse wreath for $70!

Jess liked some of the stems on this one, but wanted more color (she’s all about pops of color!), so we ended up with this collection of flowers!


We added some fern fronds and some eucalyptus sprigs for background and filler.


I did a dry run first, arranging the flowers/leafs on the wreath first and then went back and glued the pieces on after tweaking what needed to be tweaked!


We used a wide burlap ribbon to hang the wreath…you can see it in the right bottom corner of the pic above.  Got it at JoAnns too and I think it was $8 something.  Isn’t that tiered basket arrangement great?  I love it!


Here’s the finished project. 


We picked the pine cones up in the back yard…


Loving it!


Then we were off to give Baby Buster a bath!
