This weekend I took apart a spring wreath I had, and made it a little "Easter." This is what I started with.
The flowers and ribbon came from bouquets that a friend of mine made for her daughter's wedding and later gave to me.
The wreath itself was made by my sister-in-law maybe 15 years ago with grapevines from her property. She died shortly afterwards at 43 from cancer. Since I don't really have anything from her except pictures, I want to preserve this wreath. It is starting to fall apart a little, so I thought I would wrap it with a big burlap ribbon to help hold it all together.
Here are the Easter elements I decided to add. A cute little "Happy Easter" metal sign from Hobby Lobby.
And a little bunny in a sparkly pink tutu.
Here is the re-made wreath.
I had hoped to have a big lovely bow on this wreath. After quite a few frustrating attempts, I gave up. How hard can it be? One of the things I wish I had done years ago was take a bow-making class. It would have come in handy many, many times over the years.
After Easter I will remove the bunny and sign and add some other spring elements. I'm thinking some small gardening tools.
In other pretty news, look at these beautiful daisies.
Don't they just scream Spring?!
A beautiful quote found in the March/April issue of Victoria magazine . . .
Spring drew on . . . and a greenness grew over those brown (garden) beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.
