A Spring themed Wreath

Spring wreath3I really wanted to hang up a spring themed wreath on my front door this season. It's fun to create different types of wreaths for the seasons, or with supplies you have on hand. I love how this one features two little love birds-plus I'm totally obsessed with burlap right now!Steps1. Supplies: Styrofoam wreath, strips of burlap, strips of simple cotton fabric, a small square of fabric with a pretty pattern, faux birds, fake flower stem, hot glue gun, scissors, jewelry wire. 2. First, wrap the wreath with the cotton fabric and glue in place. 3. Wrap the wreath with burlap and glue in place. 4. Next, begin making burlap flowers. Start by wrapping the burlap into a cone shape. 5. Continue to loosely wrap the burlap, creating petals for the flowers. Once you've finished,  sew it securely together on the base of the flower. 6. After you've made a handful of flowers, sew them into a collage on the wreath. 7. Glue on the fake flowers among the burlap flowers. 8. Bend the jewelry wire it into a heart shape. 9. Apply a thin layer of glue to the wire and lay it face down onto a pretty piece of fabric. You can use extra burlap or cotton fabric, or choose a fabric with a pretty pattern! Once the glue is dry, trim off the excess around the wire. 10. Last, poke the ends of the wire into the back of the love birds (make sure they are Styrofoam birdies!) and glue the birds in place, kissing in the middle of the wreath! Spring wreath1Spring wreath 2I'm excited to hang this wreath on my front door this weekend! xo. emma and elsie
