So spring is definitely here. Although we have heard some of you had snow recently??? Here's a fun way to brighten up your door, entry hall or even to hang in front of a mirror for a pretty look!

Spring is in the air, and that means time to brighten up your home with new d├ęcor. With Easter on the horizon, it's the perfect time to use all the beautiful crafts and goods you can find in your local craft store to help push those winter blahs right out the door.
One of the best ways to capture that feeling is to welcome those to your home with a spring wreath. And even better, it's kid-friendly and makes for an easy craft everyone can help with.
• Styrofoam wreath
• Loops & Thread "Soft Fern" yarn (Michael's stores)
• Sizzix flower and leaf dies (sizzix.com)
• Pebbles in My Pocket paper flowers
• Sassafrass Lass metal flower
• Glue Arts Raisen's & Extreme Adhesive Squares (gluearts.com)
• K & Co. dimensional butterfly stickers
• Handbehg Felts wool balls (handbehgfelts.com)
• May Arts ribbon (mayarts.com)
• Wool felt, fabric, buttons
Step 1 • Wrap the wreath with yarn, covering the entire wreath. Use a straight pin or adhesive square to adhere yarn on backside of wreath.
Step 2 • Select your dies and felt colors. Handcut or diecut your flower shapes. I used sizes ranging from 3 3/4 inches to 4 3/4 inches. Kids can choose to use papers and punches instead of felt and dies.
Step 3 • Build the flowers. I used three to four flowers in various sizes. I simply layered the flowers, using GlueArts Raisen's until I liked the color combinations. Once you settle on how you like them, adhere them together using Raisen's and GlueArts Extreme adhesive squares.

Step 4 • Adhere the flowers to the wreath using adhesive squares. I selected a few flower stickers, added some butterfly stickers and a chipboard 'spring" sticker and then finished off the tops of the flowers with the fun felted wool balls for added dimension.  
Step 5 • After you've added the flowers you can personalize the wreath or just leave it as is. Consider adding a banner that says "welcome spring" or an initial for your last name. I added a beautiful ribbon.

How incredibly fun is? And think of all the possible styles, designs and themes you can create with a wreath! Also great teacher gift ideas for their rooms!
