I made a new "wreath" for our front door. I put that in quotes because as you will see, it is not a traditional round wreath. I saw a square piece like this at the place where I used to work but it was TWICE the price. So, I kept looking and lo and behold found this at CTS for $16.99!!! Plus it was embellished with the berries!!! SOLD!!! Here is the finished wreath and then I will take you through the steps I did to make it. It looks like a window pane. I love that it is so different than a traditional wreath.
Here is how it looked when I got it.
As you can see, I did this in the garage rather than down in the basement. It was a beautiful day yesterday, when I did this. I placed the bush of the white berries and grasses first then the nest and forsythia pick. Everything is hot glued in.
I wanted this to look like someone had just picked flowers from the garden and put them together. A gerber daisy anchors the arrangement at the bottom.
I decided to add this watering can up on the right corner as a cute accent.
The leaves that surround the daisy were left over and in my stash.
When I thought I was finished I put it on the door but decided it needed some ivy trailing down, so added that.
EVERYTHING that I used I had so this cost me the $16.99. The finished one that I saw at the store was either $60.00 or $70.00!!!!
It is so nice to have a stash of flowers to pull from. I used all the colors that are in the berries that came on the piece.
I had this one stem of purple freesia. It is a beautiful flower, used in fresh arrangements often.
So now the front is done and ready for Summer.
Thanks for your visit. I love your comments so please let me know you were here:) Have a beautiful week, my friends.
