I have Spring Fever!
Maybe it’s the -24 degrees or maybe it’s the fact that it actually is still light out at 5 o’clock but whatever the case I am really antsy for some spring decor. Just one week away from March 1st so certainly it isn’t too soon to get that spring wreath on the front door. Easter is April 5th and you know how fast that will come along so let’s get the decorating mojo going! Happy Spring
Today I am going to concentrate on wreaths since nothing says Welcome Spring like a beautiful wreath on the front door. When you own a shop everything you buy or contemplate buying you put through the mental test “Can I sell it and will someone like it as much as I do?”
It is getting harder and harder to find good faux flowers and they are more and more expensive. My cut flower vendor has nice ones but they are pricey.However, my spring fever is bad I really couldn’t help myself, it was like gardening, I had to do it! I wanted a light, airy, twiggy, kinda wild looking wreath and that is exactly how this one came out. It is mostly bushes that I took apart and a few garlands that I cut up and wired to the grape-vine base. Love the little bit of purple in the ornamental kale flowers.
Traveling around Pinterest gave me more inspiration
I never can pass up a old window with peeley paint and burlap and roses and hydrangeas. Even though Lucy at Craftberry Bush calls this as a fall wreath, I love it as a spring wreath too! You can find the whole post with tutorial HERE
Like this one for its simplicity. I found it HERE I really like the way this garland kinda hangs off the grapevine wreath that it is attached to. So simple just two colors and a bit of burlap.
I updated this post to show this more recently made oval wreath which has a tutorial on this blog Here
Even though some of the links are older and the wreaths may be from 2 years ago they are still “Fresh as Spring” and the one below is an all time favorite of mine with the green viburnum, pink roses and the hop vine. Excellent tutorial found HERE
I hope you don’t have spring fever as bad as I do but if you do maybe getting a new spring wreath on the front door will help or hanging out on Pinterest just enjoying the spring eye candy.
We will start some seedlings on March 1st in the greenhouse [love the smell of spring dirt] and then there is the Vermont Flower Show next weekend Feb. 27th, 28th and March 1st, always a morale booster!
How are you handling this extra cold snowy winter? Do you have any remedies for spring fever?
