It’s Spring, ya’ll! Or practically Summer if you go by the temperatures we’ve already had here. And the mosquitos. They are going to be epic this year. But that’s not my point! My point is, it’s Spring and I wanted some color on my doors.
So, I whipped up a couple of wreaths, one for the front door of the apartment and one for the hall closet (if you can call the space between the refrigerator and Nicholas’ bathroom a hall).
I bought a grapevine wreath from Hobby Lobby, some bright yellow spray paint, and some coordinating fabric and went to town. I have been wanting to do some bunting to decorate, and thought this would be a good place to do it. I cut out some diamond shapes from the fabric, folded them in half, and used some orange embroidery thread to stitch the edges. I kept a section at the top of each diamond to thread some orange cord through to hang on the wreath. I spray painted the wreath, strung the bunting, tied it to the wreath and I was done! I love it, but wish my front door wasn’t hunter green.
Hall Door Wreath
I’ve been wanting to do a yarn wreath and Hobby Lobby had some great paper flowers on sale, so I took this chance to do it! I grabbed a Styrofoam wreath form, some grass-green yarn, three big ol’ paper flowers, and some coordinating ribbon to hang it. This wreath is super simple, just wrap the yarn around the form (fairly tightly), poke some holes in the wreath where you want to stick the flowers, squeeze some hot glue in the holes to secure the flowers, and then wrap a bit of the ribbon on the top to hang. Done! I love the pop of color I see when I come in the front door of my apartment.
