I'm so excited today to show you how to make this pretty and simple spring wreath! It's fun to create and is a cheerful greeting to visitors who come to your home!
Isn't this a wonderful time of year? It's finally starting to warm up. The trees are in full bloom and the air smells lovely! I can say that because I don't get allergies. :) Now I'm just counting down the days until I start seeing beautiful flowers pop out of the ground. The earth just feels so lively, fresh and new right now, and I'm just soaking it all in! To celebrate, I wanted to put together a simple wreath in pastel colors to adorn my front door.
I wanted the embellishments to give it a butterfly-type illusion, because they are one of the things I most look forward to seeing in the spring. I also tied in the two fabric tape colors, some buttons and a mini burlap pennant banner for added appeal.
You'll be amazed at how easy this is!
1 floral wreath form (I used a 12")
Two varieties of Duck Fabric® Tape (I used "Yellow Speckled Dot and Pink & Brown Dot)
I'm loving the fun spring patterned-fabric tape that Duck® brand is offering! The best part? It's fabric and tape all-in-one, so it has a sticky back that easily attaches itself to the wreath form! Genius! I have to say that Duck® brand got it just right, too, because it's sticky enough to adhere to the surface, yet not so sticky that you can't re-position it if you need to. I'll admit, I had some oopsies and put it to the test. :) I'm pleased to announce that it passed with flying colors!
I often get frustrated when I'm using regular fabric to make a wreath because the hot glue shows through, but with Duck Fabric®, there's no messy gluing required! It's easy-on and there to stay!
Duck Fabric® tape.
Duck Fabric® tape and do the same, starting in back, making sure it overlaps a little with the edge of your yellow. Do approximately seven more rotations of this. Repeat again with yellow (or the pattern that you first started with).
Duck Fabric® a breeze to use? It's sheer genius in my book.
Now gather a piece in the center like this. You'll kind of fold it back and forth like a fan until it gathers and then pinch it in the middle. Hot glue it together in the center. Repeat this process for your other three burlap "bows".
Now we're going to make the two fabric "butterflies". Cut a piece of Duck Fabric® tape and peel the backing off.
Cut an equal-sized piece, peel its backing off, and stick it squarely over the top of the other piece. Smooth it out. You may need to trim it if it's too long.
Repeat this process for what will be your fourth bow (the one that will show on the bottom). Glue white buttons on your other burlap bows.
Duck Fabric® tape is a perfect medium for wreath-making. It really streamlines the process, not to mention how fun it looks!
Welcome spring! Have a blast creating!
