Happy Spring, sweet friends! The yard is really starting to look great, and I just know an end to the pollen is soon. I've already done a thorough cleaning to the porches. Just waiting on the last of the pollen to really start putting the decorating touches to the spaces.
My first “pretty” project for the porch came at a perfect time! This month's Pinterest Challenge is all about….
Spring Door Hangings
How does this work? Each month the team will come together with a lovely photo for inspiration. Then we will each recreate it using our unique touches.
Each month, my blogging friend, Cindy, from County Road 407 organizes the fun blog hop for us and sends us our inspiration photo. We are given permission from the original source to use the photo. Please be sure to give that blogger a visit.
This month's inspiration comes from Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures.
I knew that I wanted a new wreath for the screened in porch. The current one has been up for quite a few years and was just starting to look a bit tattered. I've always kept a wreath in this area as a bit of a welcome as you entered the porch from the house or the patio.
Here is the old wreath. You can find the complete tutorial for it HERE. (made in 2014)
Decorating Tip: Let me share with you my wreath making tip……you may get tired of a wreath or in all…..it looks not so fresh. I will take the supplies from an old wreath and use them to make a new wreath. Sometimes it's combining a little new with it or some floral pieces that look a little better. It's what enables me to affordably make new wreaths for the blog yearly.
Here I have flowers that I've removed from old wreaths and a few that I've used in vases. Do you see my little photo bomber?
I had a partial bag of sheet moss.
I filled in the basket just along the front with all the moss that I had. Oops….not enough!
I had some leftover drop cloth with my fabric stash. I cut a bit roughly to fill in on top of the moss.
I'm really liking the look so far!
I cut some floral foam blocks to fit inside the basket.
I did not have the same large, white blossoms that the inspiration photo had. I removed these 3 peonies from THIS WREATH. I positioned them in a very similar way as the other wreath. Then I proceeded to fill in the remainder of the wreath.
I'm very pleased with how it turned out for the porch!
Not bad for a wreath that cost less than $5! I love it hung on this iron wall accent piece. (similar linked)
Be sure to subscribe for upcoming posts. Lots of changes coming to the screened in porch on a big budget!
