Bring On Spring. A Simple DIY Project.

From workspace to door in 20 minutes or less for under $13! A simple project that will bring springtime cheer to your door.

My Christmas wreath was still on my front door at the end of January. It was time to change it out, but I didn't have anything to put in its place. I noticed Michael's Arts and Crafts had 30% of your entire purchase last week (through 2/4/17). I stopped by to see if I could find an economical way to replace my Christmas wreath (which is a fast and furious task when you are shopping with a 3 and 2 year old)!

I decided on a grapevine wreath for my DIY project. I was excited about the $3.49 price tag (with the 30% discount) . Yes, please!  Into the cart it went.

The next step took me to the floral department. I must say this part took me a little bit of time to figure out. There were so many flowers to choose from, and so many directions I could have gone with this wreath. It helps if you have a specific color scheme in mind (especially with toddlers in tow).  I ended up picking two different flower options and headed to the letters. I knew I wanted a "W" on our wreath for the initial of our last name. I picked out a white wood "W" and a silver galvanized "W." I liked the way the silver ($4.00) looked so I ended up going with the green and white hydrangeas ($1.74 a piece). Step Two Done!

The wreath came together fast.  Getting the bow just right took the most time in this project. I already had the burlap on hand, but I felt it needed a pop of color to pull out the green. I grabbed this fun ribbon while at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. It was the perfect element to complete the wreath. The last step was to hot glue everything in place. I secured the "W" to the wreath with black pipe cleaners I had on hand.

Ta Da! Fun new door decor in less than 20 minutes!

I can't wait for spring! But until then this wreath will brighten my door on the cold winter days ahead.
