If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw this wreath I made way back in early March. It was more put together than made, but hey, that’s pretty much how all of my DIY projects go these days.
I was in desperate need of an indoor, calming activity to do during all of our snowy, cold days so after a quick trip to Michaels, I got to work on a DIY spring wreath and, while definitely spring-y, can transition to summer as well.
Here’s what I used (all purchased from Michaels with coupons):
- 1 branch wreath form
- 1 package faux moss
- 1 “Live” wooden sign
- 1 pre-made bird’s nest
- Martha Stewart turquoise craft paint
- Martha Stewart Antique craft paint
- foam sponge
- sand paper
- hot glue gun
The only semi-hard part of the project was painting/distressing the “Live” wood sign, which actually wasn’t really difficult, but just took a little patience to let it dry enough between stages–paint, sand, antique–to use.
Once the sign dried, I got to work hot gluing the components onto the wreath base and then used the raffia to tie on the sign. All in all, the project probably took about 15 minutes of hands-on time with a lot of waiting for paint to dry in between.
For such an easy project, I definitely loved how it turned out!
