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.
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…
