spring wreath

I'm working on bringing spring into my house this week with some fun projects. First up is my new wreath! I saw Emily's idea for a ruffle wreath on her blog and knew it was exactly the look I was going for.

I started out with a basic straw wreath form. They are super cheap and you're going to cover the whole thing anyway! I then wrapped the whole thing with strips of linen. Here it is:

I then made some simple ruffles and wrapped them around the wreath as well. Securing with some hot glue.

The wreath looks great just like this but I thought it needed a little spring bling. I picked up a couple flower pins at the fabric store and a couple rhinestones. I used some hot glue to attach the rhinestones to the flower. So cute!

I then used my trusty hot glue gun to attach the flowers to the wreath. Lastly, I hung up the wreath with some white ribbon I had around the house. It looks great, and was super easy! Now I just need to work on the rest of my spring mantle.

Here's how Emily added a little sparkle to hers!
