Soooo, this post was due a way long time ago. I got sidetracked. It happens when you’re nesting.
After Christmas, I got inspired to do something – anything – to brighten our front door during the springtime. I didn’t actually make it reality until March, but WHATEVER.
It all started with this wreath I spied on Whipperberry. She might make you feel inadequate as a creative housewife, but I just find her inspiring. I love seeing pretty and she totally delivers. I loved that wreath so much, I made this one, too. At this point, I think you can call it an addiction. Me + muslin + canvas = love.
All the spring wreaths I found on St. Pinterest were just a little too eggy for me. Plus, I wanted one that did triple duty: Lent, St. Patrick’s AND Easter. Because I need simplification in my life. I completely copied Heather’s tutorial for her candy corn wreath and just used different colors. Maybe you like different ones. Go for it.
If you want the full tutorial, please visit Heather’s blog as she does a much better job explaining than I could. I will say, however, that she recommends 1/2 yard of the canvas, but I think you need more like 3/4 yard to really fill it in nicely. Above, I’ve used 1/2 yard, but if I had to do it over again, I’d use more.
In addition, I waited until Hancock Fabrics put their canvas on sale and that made it even more affordable. I purchased the green foam (not the white) wreath from Michael’s and everything else (fabric, pins and ribbon) from Hancock. Happy spring!
