Time for a Spring Wreath!
A couple of days of sunshine, a few days past Easter, and I had to make a new wreath for my front door! If you want simple, but, pretty, take a trip to the dollar store or your favorite craft store. I purchased five scarfs that were blue and pink (flamingoes), because I liked the colors. I also found a garland I wanted parts of, a metal wreath form and after playing with the ideas I had, I sat down with my wreath parts and started putting it together while I watched TV. What can I say? I find it relaxing!
These are the scarfs I picked out. You could use strips of material, scarfs you have, or any material, even ties with this method.
I decided to try something new. I wove the first scarf in and out of the metal.
Then, as I wove it in and out, I pushed it together to make it prettier.
This is the back of the wreath, where I tied the ends together. You could glue them, or pin them if you wanted. I like how it looks braided.
I found luau garlands at the dollar store. The flamingoes and birds were paper, but, the flowers were felt and the string was just perfect for what I wanted. You could add flowers, other decorative items, or just a pretty bow.
I tied the flowers onto the wreath with the twine the garland came with.
Spring is here! Finally! Hope you like it! To hang it, I just placed it over the hook I keep on the door (an outside Command hook). Metal wreath forms are easy to hang on the hook.

Okay. This is an awesome idea. Time to get busy. Thanks for sharing!
Which wire loops to you weave in and out of? First and last? Every wire loop?
Did you use all five scarfs? I priced them at Amazon and they’re $15.00 each.
What diameter is the metal wreath? You bought 5 scarves; did you use all of them? It looks great.
