A while back, during one of my weekly trips to Hobby Lobby, I found these fun paper flowers.
I just loved them! I didn’t really know what I would do with them, but I knew I had to have them! Eventually I decided I could use them for a wreath for the front porch. After all, they did match my yellow chair and other porch decor perfectly!
I decided to make this one pretty simple. I got one yard of brown burlap, the flowers and a straw wreath.
I cut the burlap into strips. I wasn’t too careful to make sure they were straight or even because it’s burlap, and it’s not supposed to look perfect!
I used hot glue to secure the first strip to the wreath and wrapped the strips around the wreath.
Each time I needed a new strip, I glued it to the back side of the wreath, close to where the previous piece ended.
I wrapped the wreath in two layers of burlap.
I cut the stems off of the flowers.
And used hot glue to attach them to the wreath.
I arranged them in a cluster to hide the leftover stem pieces.
I didn’t like the bright green color of the leaves, so I spray painted them with a pretty avocado paint.
Then glued the leaves to each end of the cluster.
And here is my new spring wreath! Complete with a yellow striped ribbon to match my fun yellow chair!
