How to Create a Spring Wreath

Stepping into the charity shops I often wonder what treasures I might find. An Aladdin's cave of jewels await those who venture in and choose to help a cause and be environmentally friendly. I've heard that some books make it to the shelves within weeks of being released as they've been devoured by their first owner and are waiting patiently for someone else to snap them up.While practical objects such as a light shade or mirror may fit perfectly in another's house and may be that final piece to makeover a child's room.

So when I spied this plain painted wreath laying on a shelf alongside a few other pieces including a heart punch around Valentine's day. I thought it would make for a perfect project to breathe new life into.  I imagined it could be used for Valentines or Spring or perhaps both but soon settled on transforming it into a Spring wreath. 


How to Create a Spring Wreath

To Create This Spring Wreath You Will Need:

  • A Wreath
  • Fake Flowers
  • Ribbon
  • A nest with eggs and chicks 
  • All purpose adhesive

Now for the Fun Part

I began with a few fake flowers I had interweaving the stems within the wreath. Then I took a bit of ribbon and threaded it within the wreath so that it could be hung up. Once this was in place I took another ribbon and tied that round the first and created a bow. I hung this up on the wall and left it as it was for a while. However, when I spied the nest in a local supermarket I thought it made a lovely addition and secured it in place using all purpose glue.

This is where I have left the Spring wreath but wonder whether that is enough. Perhaps other flowers could adorn the wreath or is keeping it simple the way forward. What do you think?

    1. Certainly. I imagine older children would find this easier to do than toddlers.
