Spring Frame Wreath.1

My front door has been empty for a couple weeks so I made this Spring Frame Wreath to brighten it up. I’m really happy with how it turned out and it was so easy to make.

Since I like a different look when it comes to wreaths, I bought these cute wood supplies at Michael’s to make one for Spring. I used paint I had on hand from other craft projects so I didn’t have addition cost. And I used spray paint on the frame instead of trying to brush all those scroll-y areas.

I painted the bird with DecoArt Spa Blue then sanded the edges a little to expose the wood.

Next came the banner flags that I painted with DecoArt Wisteria then used the end of a paint brush to make white dots on the flags. I varied the dots size by dipping the brush end in the paint and making a few dots before dipping again.

The letters were painted with DecoArt Lemonade. I only painted the top of the letters using a small brush to keep the wood showing on the sides.

I attached the letters to the banner flags using wood glue. I love the random polka dots on the flags.

Then I connected the flags together using hemp twine.

I wanted to add a bird nest to the wreath but didn’t have one the right size so I made one from a strip of burlap. Fold the burlap in half long wise, then start twisting and wrapping the fabric to form a circle. Hot glue in a few places to make sure it keeps it shape. Similar to these rosettes but looser with an indented center for the eggs.

Hot glue the eggs to the center and you have a cute bird nest.

I attached the bird nest and the bird to the frame using E600 glue. Since it’s hanging outside I want it to be sturdy.

And there you have a Spring welcome! Have you made something Springy for your front door?

I love this. It’s gorgeous.

I made a crochet spring wreath this year. I only learned crochet this year as one of my New Years resolutions so I’m really pleased with it :)

Love, love, love this! What size is this frame? I’m trying to reproduce it, but wasn’t sure of the sizes you used.
