Come On Spring Wreath

As I sit here typing this we have just received a few more inches of the lovely white stuff. I think this year having three kiddos on the go makes me long for spring even more. I want to get outside with everyone and go places. I feel like we have been inside for as long as the boys could walk. I decided I was ready for a spring wreath. I know it may be wishful thinking in mid-February, but I am thinking positively.  

I used the great tutorial again from Top This Top That.  I love how easy it is to make this wreath, and then you can add decorations as the season changes.

I used a wire wreath form, about two and a half rolls of plain burlap, a smaller roll of pink burlap, Silhouette vinyl, Silhouette machine, a wooden plaque from Michaels and shelf liner.  I made the wreath and added the bit of burlap in pink at the top. I figured that saved me from making a big bow for the top of it since it already resembles a bow.  Then I placed some shelf liner on the wooden plaque I got at Michaels. It comes off pretty easily, and so I think I will be able to peel it off and reuse it if I felt like changing up the wreath.

I cut out the word Spring on my Silhouette Cameo machine, and then attached the wooden plaque with some ribbon I had on hand. I added an extra paper flower from a set I picked up in the dollar aisle at Michaels with a glue dot.   I did glue the ribbon to the backside of the plaque, and then tied it through the wire at the top.  I am hoping maybe that cute little groundhog was wrong and spring will be coming earlier after all. Here's hoping.  Enjoy your day!
