Updating a Spring Wreath…

I don’t know about y’all, but I use the same wreaths over and over, year after year, with additions to make them look new. I don’t like spending a lot of money to make a brand new look for the front door, but I also get tired of the same old thing. Plus, birds and insects help my decision about refreshing every season!

I’ve used this grapevine wreath for my spring and summer front door for the last couple of years. I added the cotton stems last year and the willow branches this year. I really like the “non-uniform” look of the greenery as it hangs on the door, and I like a larger wreath so it shows up well.  When I saw this wreath from On Sutton Place on Pinterest, I decided to give it a try since I had these little terra-cotta clay pots in my storage.

I wanted the pots to add to the look I already had and got busy with the pots, wreath and twine.  It was so easy!  You literally just run the twine through the hole in the bottom of the pot and tie it onto the wreath (I tied with a double knot).  You can tie them on in a random up and down order or add as many or as few as you want.  Here are some pictures of the steps I took:

 

These pots are 1 1/2″ and 2″-3″ tall and can be purchased at Hobby Lobby,  JoAnn’s or my favorite online, Amazon (Set of 10 Small Terra Cotta Pots – Clay Flower Pots, Mini Flower Pot Planters for Indoor, Outdoor Plant, Succulent Display, Brown – 1 x 1.5 Inches).

Easy Peasy project that adds a different Spring touch. I may change out the burlap bow with cute gardening implements like the wreath above or just wait until next year🙂  Hope you try it out!
