AhhSpring time! The glorious time of year where the birds are chirping, the flowers are in bloom. Speaking of all things beautiful, I can’t wait to show you how I created this beautiful wreath I’ve hung on my door. I wasn’t going to make one, I was going to purchase one off of etsy but was discouraged after seeing crafters charging in the ball park range of $60. A bit too much for my wallet of mine.
Needless to say, our neighborhood is all about keeping up with the Jones. I set out to make a beautiful wreath for a reasonable price.
2 40% off coupons: I had two 40% off coupons for being a Michael’s reward’s member. One for myself, and one from my husband (I made him sign-up). Being a reward’s member is pretty snazzy. The store offers no-receipt for exchanges or returns, exclusive offers, MEMBERS-ONLY events, and early alerts for sales.. total bonus right? If you’re not a rewards member you can sign up here Michael’s Rewards

One thing I love about this wreath is the simplicity of putting it all together; a total of 15 minutes! Weave the stem in the wreath in the pattern you desire as shown below. Don’t be afraid to be a bit aggressive. You’ll hear some breaks of the wreath, but I promise it will be okay!
Here is a close up of the wreath, after its all done.
Voilà! I hope you enjoy making your spring time wreath.
p.s. Even better, I didn’t have to wait for shipping!
