Though the sun was shining today, the snow still managed to steal the spotlight and dance to the wind. A cold dance that seemed to be mocking the birds as they sought refuge from the wind. Such a contrast to this past weekend when we were sure we had seen the last of the snow.
I wanted to make a wreath to display through Easter, Spring and into the Summer.
Our front porch has double doors, so I needed something a little more frugal. I already had one of the grapevine wreaths. So I ventured to Michael’s to buy a second, which happened to be 50% off. I then purchased some peach blossoms, magnolia leaves and a few little flowers as filler from the Dollar Store, spending about $10.00.
I can’t wait to be able to put together our front porch planters without fear of frost killing the plants. But for now, these wreaths will have to do.
I hope you have a great day. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Ah, I love your wreaths! I always see the faux flowers at the Dollar Store and wonder how to make them less faux-ish. I might have to try this myself!
My neighbours are used to seeing me in pjs taking photos of the front of my house. Good thing they read the blog, ha

You work miracles with faux flowers….beautiful wreath, so fresh and springy!
Simple but effective, now if i thought that ours wouldn’t go missing i might give it a go but after we once had some pre lit trees go walk about it’s made me very wary. Very pretty 🙂
