    Use the bounty of your garden to make Spring Wreaths!

     

     

    I am all about using natural materials, making pretty things and spending little or no money doing it! Here’s a little project that would be a sweet gift or home accent for yourself. These wreaths made of dried plant materials can be colored to suit your decor or left as nature intended. Best of all, they use the bounty of your own garden and take less than an hour to make!

    Dried flowers, pinecones, bean soup mix, hot glue, a wreath and ribbon are all you need. Watercolor paints can also be used o add color.http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com/diy-spring-wreaths/

     Even the wreaths I used were from our garden! In fall, when I trimmed back the mandevilla vine to bring indoors, I formed the cuttings into wreaths and let them dry. You could also purchase small, inexpensive wreaths from a craft store for this project.

     To make this little wreath more vibrant, I used watercolor paints to touch up the dried materials. Bright hues and a blue satin ribbon say, “Spring”.

     For the second wreath, I used dried plant materials only and did not paint them. The hydrangea petals, miniature roses and dried orchid flower add just enough color.

    These pretty little wreaths cost only my time, a bit of glue and some ribbon. They will make sweet gifts or look lovely hanging in a window or on a cupboard door. Nature’s gifts.

  1. I’m behind this Spring. I need to freshen up my front door and dining table. This has given me that kick in the rear I needed.

    Cute post. Thanks.
