Quick and Easy Makeover

Popped into the garden centre on Sunday and they had buy two get one free on all silk flowers.  So I spent under $25, as I needed florist wire as well and did the following:

Started out with my plain wreath:


Bought three stems of silk Forsythia, cut them down into individual stems; only used two of the three stems:

Ended up with this, very Spring like:
Put the third stem in a vase in the house for a little Spring colour in the house. 

I was looking at Spring wreaths and they were $50 + for the nice ones.  My Spring bulbs are finally peaking through the soil.

I love that wreath. But, every time I put a wreath on the door, birds perch there and end up in the house when I open the door!

Very nice!! I love that cheerful yellow. Think spring. That's what I keep telling myself.
Blessings,

Great job, The forsythia is blooming all over around here.

Very pretty. We had a forsythia bush in front of our house when I was a kid - I've always associated yellow with spring. If it ever stops raining around here we may see some spring flowers soon. I sowed some grass seed right before it started to rain (for 3 days!) so hoping I'll see some green soon too!
