I love a good wreath. Unfortunately, this wasn't one in the beginning. There was a little sprucing needed. Allright, a lot of sprucing needed. It was incredibly drab. The grapevine was frail, the hydrangeas were spread out randomly, half the leaves were gone...It just wasn't all it could be~but the potential was there. The price was right as well, so a year ago I brought it home and used it knowing the inspiration would strike eventually. Who knew it would take 12 months?
I had eight bunches of berry sprays sitting in a vase, and as I walked by with the wreath recently, it happened: inspiration. Why not use the berry sprays as filler? It helped eleminate the awkward spaces between flowers, added more depth to the wreath, and the color! What a welcome, beautiful shade hearkening to Spring's return.
A little hot glue action after placing the stems into place and voila! A new Spring wreath was born. We still may have until March 20th for Spring to really begin, but in our home, we've already laid out the welcome mat (or wreath)!
