Spring is here!!   I only know this because I went home to Tennessee last week and got to see daffodils, Japanese quince, and dogwoods blooming!

It was so refreshing to see these beautiful reminders that…well…winter didn’t kill everything.

Since here in Florida it already feels like summer I thought I would ‘make a little spring’ to have inside our house.

McCall Manor Spring Wreath

This is just made with card stock from JoAnn’s, a foam wreath form and tiny brads.  And of course there is hot glue involved.  Nothing says ‘craft project’ like hot glue…

On the Silhouette Online store I found a cut file for a ranunculus  flower.  I downloaded it and then played with the sizes.  There are 3 different sizes of flowers on this wreath.

A small circle was added to the center of each petal group so that the petals could attach to each other with a brad.

Once the petal groups were cut, I curled the individual petals with my finger.  Then they were layered and stuck together with the brad.

For this wreath, there are 13 flowers ranging in size and color.

I wrapped the wreath form with leftover green ribbon.

Two different sizes.

My Grandmother and Mother have a saying for when something isn’t quite perfect:  “It’ll never be noticed on a galloping horse.  And my dear, that’s the only kind of horse you ride.”

That might just be my mantra.

Once the flowers were placed ‘randomly’ around the wreath, I cut some leaves and stuck them on with hot glue.

So while it’s not a  bunch daffodils, I’ll take it.

After all, that galloping horse I’m riding wouldn’t let me slow down to smell the flowers anyway…

Blessings,

Holly

    So pretty! I love the colors you chose for your wreath. Great colors for Spring. I have wanted to try making the 3-D flowers, now I am going to have to give it a go. I am stopping by as a fellow Silhouette Challenge Blogger.

    Love the wreath! I have been saying “if you can’t see it from a galloping horse then it doesn’t matter” for at least 30 years if not longer! So fun to see someone else using “my phrase”!

  8. Kristy gd says:

    I love that saying! I simply must find a use for it now since it feels like I’m constantly riding on a galloping horse. (p.s. the wreath is amazing too!)

  9. Nancy says:

    Love this! Very pretty!

  10. jogry says:

    Love your site! Thanks for the lovely tutorials. I am the only one person who does stamping and having a Cameo in Bali. Sometimes difficult to keep energized.
    Greetings Jogry

  16. Oh my goodness, this is so, SO lovely!!! And I love how the texture of the paper adds a little extra something to each of your flowers. I need to go track down this cut file!

    What a BEAUTIFUL wreath!!! Seriously, I need to get a silhouette just so I can make one or ten of these!! Great job. 🙂

      Lindsay, I just went to snoop around your blog and I LOVE it!!! Your sense of style in your decor is just yummy! Glad you stopped by here. 🙂 Oh and yes, I think it’s perfectly logical to get a silhouette machine just to make the wreath. 😉

  25. That is so pretty! I love the colours you used. It sounds like your weather in Florida is similar to our weather here in Brisbane Australia. It is meant to be Fall here but we have just had a hot week at the beach!

    If you have a minute to spare please pop by and say g’day and perhaps even link up your post to my Say G’Day Linky Party! This would be a wonderful addition.

    Best wishes,
    Natasha in Oz

  30. Hey Holly!
    Thanks so much for linking up at the Link It or Lump It link party! I absolutely love your paper flower wreath! I have actually been thinking about doing something similar for my back door. I am going to feature yours this week, so stop back on Sunday.
    PS. I have no idea how I missed your lovely spring wreath on the Sil Challenge group this month. (I use my other blog Silhouette School to submit, etc). I just love it!

  31. Elizabeth says:

    This is so gorgeous! I loooove the colors. You don’t happen to know the names of the cardstock colors, do you? Just beautiful.

    • hollymcc says:

      Hey, thank you for the sweet comment! I don’t have a clue as to the colors unfortunately. I purchased all of the pinks/cream at Joann’s. The green for the leaves was from my own stash.
      Just look for muted colors, that’s all I did. 🙂
      Good luck!

  32. Hi Holly, I found your blog through MyPaperCraze. I just love this wreath. Although I don’t own a Silhouette, I do have a Tim Holtz die that I think would work for this project. I just love the colors, so pretty.
