DIY - Spring Wreath and My First Feature

My friend and I got together this past weekend to make pinterest-worthy spring wreaths for our front doors. We made wreaths back in December for Christmas and had a blast so we decided to do it again. Here is what I started with:

A twig wreath found at Hobby Lobby - $6

Pretty florals ranging from $3 to $7 each

I couldn't resist this artichoke...

or this garlic

The finished product

It was so easy! I just started sticking the florals in through the twigs and just made my way around the wreath. I wanted it to look whimsical and wild so I didn't have to think too much about it. This is such an easy thing for anyone to do. If you say that you aren't crafty, then you can still do this! It was so much fun and I get such a feeling of satisfaction when I see it hanging on my door.

*A Little Something Extra*

I am so excited to let you guys know that I have been featured on another blog! Jacy over at My Name is Jacy has decided to do a weekly fashion feature and I was the very first one! Thanks Jacy! Check out her blog for inspiring stories, humor, fashion, and much more.
