I don't care what anyone says. March 1st, is the beginning of Spring. At least it is in my head anyway. So, out comes the SPRING decor. I don't have a ton of Holiday Decor, but I always have DOOR DECOR. (Little known fact: I used to have a business called Lindsey's Door Decor, and I would sell floral arrangements that I made on-line. It didn't last long, my best clients were my neighbors!) Anyway, I should have done something along the lines of Stie's amazing cake decorating blog to demonstrate, but, I didn't think of sharing it until I was all done.
I will share that MICHAELS HAS ALL OF THEIR SPRING STEMS ON SALE FOR 40% OFF! So: if you want to make it, or something like it, here is the list of supplies.
1 Berry Birds Nest Spray: On sale for $1.79
1 Green Berry Garland (It is right next to the birds' nest) On Sale: $5.99
1 Green and White Hydrangea Bush Stem: On Sale: 5.99
1 Green Wired Ribbon (Choose the one you like) Not on Sale: 3.99
1 Grapevine Wreath
(I am not sure how much the grapevines are, but you can use your 40 % off Michaels Coupon, or did you know they will accept Joanne's 40% coupon?) Anyway, I just had one on hand, and ripped all of the old and faded decorations off of it, and used it.)
1: Get green craft wire, and fasten the garland to the wreath.
2: Take some wire snips to your hydrangea bush, and snip off the flowers leaving a 3 inch stem.
3: Jam them into the grapevine wreath. They will stay, you don't need wire.
4: Do the same to the Bird's nest spray.
5: Wrap your ribbon around the wreath, and tie a bow! (I tied two) and VOILA! You are done.
