While perusing Pinterest for ideas and generally procrastinating from things I need to do in general I found this website that posted a really pretty wreath.
Now I don't make wreaths but I do like them for my door. I have one wreath I got at a garage sale that I use year round but it is really more for the fall with pears and berries and such on it. This one I saw was very springy. I love the colors, and since it doesn't require silk flowers or wire or such and I can just re use things I already have and since I am still procrastinating from other more important things...heck I might as well try my hand at it. There were no instructions- which was even better. In fact I couldn't even tell what it was made of. But I had just put out the recycling and I knew there was an empty egg carton sitting out there and I hadn't heard the truck yet...so I ran out to the curb and dug through the big blue recycling bin and voila!
One carton wasn't enough, so I went into the fridge and took all the eggs out of another carton and put them in a bowl. I cut the flowers and the petals from the cardboard and found some scrap of cardboard to cut into a circle.
This morning I got out the glue gun cause I was too impatient to let any other type of glue dry. I used some buttons, beads, dried flowers, and scrapbook embellishments to finish off the center of each flower and voila! I like my wreath.
Even though it's below freezing here this morning at least my door looks ready for spring!
