2 New Wreaths and Tutorial

Good morning! I am hoping that as you read this on Monday morning I feel better than I do right now as I type this. I stubbed my toe HARD on a cement ledge in the garage tonight right before dinner. UGH, it hurts. I think it may be broken, as it is turning black and blue and it started to turn towards the outside of my foot. So, I have taped 2 toes together to help it heal straight:) 
Anyway, last week I had a request from a friend to make her a new wreath for her front door. It then gave me the motivation to make a new wreath for our front door too! So, here they are. My friend wanted red geraniums as that is what they have planted along the front of their house. Let me tell you, they were HARD to find! I finally bought a garland. I am sorry these first 2 pictures are dark,  As you can see, I did these out in the garage. Here is the garland added to the wreath.
 Then I cut apart a white hydrangea bush and placed them around the wreath.
 Finally I filled in with some spiky, white flowers that also were a bush that I cut apart.
 Here is the finished wreath.

 She really liked it when I took it to her:)
 Next I started on our wreath. I had bought all the flowers in the Spring and just hadn't gotten to put it together. I decided I wanted to stay with my blue, white and pops of orange color scheme that I am loving this year. I started placing 3 nests around the wreath. Then I cut apart the blue hydrangea bush and placed them
 I made the bow and added that, then filled in the orange flowers, then some peach flowers too.
 Then I cut apart a white bush and added them as filler too.



Finally I had a bush of variegated ivy in my stash so I cut that all apart and wound it through the wreath.





 Here it is on the front door. I am hoping the birds are done making their nests as we have had many made in our wreaths over the years:) I like the bright colors as you can see it from the street.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

  3. How lovely of you for making one for your friend and how pretty they both are! Thanks so much for sharing at Celebrate Your Story! I made a red geranium wreath for my front door, too! Alas, our home is being painted, so my wreath is sitting on the floor inside my entryway! I look forward to sharing it soon!
