March was a week a way – and the front door was still adorned with the Christmas Wreath!
It’s not that I don’t love the Christmas Wreath! I do!
Baubles (and golf balls) have been added and removed over the past 8 years.
The bow this year was reused from the Halloween Witch in a Cauldron.
Spring arrives here in March, so this year, I was determined to hang a more seasonally correct wreath by March!
I was thinking simple and understated.
Many coupons and 50% off sales later, wire wreath form and garlands of greenery were on the work counter. The Dollar Store provided moss.
Glue gun at the ready….
……The result was truly underwhelming.
It was simple – and understated. Too simple. Too understated. And too undersized.
So, more coupons, more 50% off sales….
Back to the work surface with wire cutters and glue gun at the ready.
Two greenery bushes (one light, one dark) were cut apart and added to create a larger wreath base.
Local desert blooms (artificial) were selected to add color.
The orange and pink blooms reflect plants that are currently in bloom in our yard.
Coordinating rose colored stems were added rather than a bow.
A large lemon yellow flower anchors the other blooms.
The variations in the greenery really work well together.
Although no longer simple – the Spring Wreath is correctly sized, still somewhat understated and seasonally correct!
Wonder what goodies I might find to add next year?
