A Spring Wreath

I have been lovin' the
that I've seen around lately. 
I put it on my to do list except I kinda cheated.

I saw one at Wal-Mart and figured it was 
just as cheap to buy the pre-made 
wreath as it was to buy the wreath 
form & moss to make my own.

So I opted for the easy way out, but I 
dressed the wreath up a little. I added 
the tulips which I bought at the Dollar Store 
and I added the chipboard stickers 
that I already had on hand.

She's a beauty now....
































Imagine, Improvise & Invent

You're right! She's a beauty now! Nice job. (I ruined a blender once making my own moss!! I should have gone pre-made!)

Very pretty wreath, and I like the base being moss, gives such a natural look to it. I really love it, so pretty. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best!

Absolutely gorgeous! I am loving all the moss DIY projects that are popping up this year so much that I have a roll of sheet moss waiting for me. Thanks for inspiring me!

Very pretty. I think moss wreaths are so "springish". Nicely done. There's nothing wrong with dressing up a store bought wreath. Not everything has to be homemade!

I have been loving the moss wreaths lately too but at times moss can be very expensive. You probably did better purchasing it premade and embellishing it. Thanks so much for sharing at Toot Your Horn Tuesday. It turned out gorgeous!

Hi! Love your wreath! I agree..why reinvent the wheel! The tulips are so fresh! Great job! Hope you'll stop by, Sunny109

You've put a "spring" in my step with your creative loveliness.

Have a blessed day!

There's nothing wrong with taking the easy route...especially if it's more cost effective. Your embellishments are what makes it special anyway. ;)

Hi Sarah, your wreath definately shouts Spring! I have a square moss wreath on my front door. Cheated too, lol! I bought mine at Tai-pan. Just added a bit of ribbon and a found nest with faux eggs. The yellow tulips dolled yours up just great. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup Thursday. Hope you will share often. Already a follower, but now following via linky.
