Spring Wreaths

Since it has finally warmed up, I am getting into Spring cleaning mode and wanted to do a little decorating. My mom is a florist, so she has access to a floral supply house in Lexington. I went yesterday and picked out some stuff to make a few wreaths and decorate my tree for spring. My mom came over last night and helped me put my wreaths together. Here is our finished product:

The left one is quite a bit smaller and I did it by myself, the larger one my mom helped with. I think they turned out pretty good. I love the ribbon. It is burlap kind of material and comes in a bunch of different colors. And I am really into birds and nests for Spring. These lovelies will go on my front and side doors.

My house is not country at all, and is decorated pretty modern, but I think I make this tree work. Its the only one I have like it in my house. For Fall and Christmas, it is decorated super modern with all kinds of sparkly things on it. For Spring, I used birds nests, sparkly butterflies (these stay on pretty much year round) and little birds that I got from Hobby Lobby. Here is a close of of the butterflies:

and I found these cute little birds at Home Goods a couple weeks back. The moss heart is from the floral supply house. I had no idea what I would do with it, but it looks pretty good propped up behind my birds.

  1. After looking at this tree over and over...I have decided that the tulle just isnt cutting it. I may have to get something new to wrap around it...Maybe green burlap ribbon like what is on the wreaths?
