A Matching Wreath Set

As a reward for finishing up two out of my four classes, I granted myself an hour to do ONE project before hitting the books again for my final test and paper.  I had bought all of the ingredients for a wreath last week to match the monogram one I had made a couple of month ago, so I thought that it was about time to finally make it!

Instead of a monogram, this time I put our hour address on the wreath.  The florals were all Spring Clearance at Joann's.  I'm so happy with how they came out.

We have plenty of holiday wreaths--Christmas, Easter, birthdays, etc.  But we were missing out on a cute every-day-that-isn't-a-holiday wreath.  And I think these came out wonderfully.

Do you have any pretty wreath designs for a not-a-holiday wreath?  I'd love some new ideas!

  1. Oh, I would love to know how to make these... I am actually more spiritual and as that goes we tend to have several season related holidays throughout the year. I don't usually have time to start crafting again every 3 months, but I could use a Beltane (spring time) wreath. That's the holiday that made the May-pole famous, with bright colorful ribbons so that could be something to play off of

  2. I posted a quick tutorial for the first one I had made here:

    It was mostly a lot of floral wire and hot glue. :)

    A May-Pole ribbon wreath is a great idea! I think they make great gifts, so that just might be next on the list. If I decide to make one, I'll be sure to post a tutorial for you!

    Thanks for stopping by!
