Finally all the snow (at least where I live) is melted and the last couple of days has been beautiful. The temperature has been in the high 60s with sunny skies and a fresh breeze. Everything is announcing that Spring is just around the corner and I can’t wait for Spring to come. To celebrate these beautiful days, I will share with you a “how to” Eco-Friendly Spring Wreath.
1. Start your wreath by shaping the hanger in a circle.
2. Cut the plastic shopping bags in strips of 1″ wide x 6″ long. Tight the strips all around the hanger.
3. Cut flowers and leaves from the recycled plastic bottles. To cut the flowers, I used free cliparts as stencils.
4. Paint the flowers and leaves and let them dry. I painted mine with inexpensive acrylic paints, $0.60 each in Michaels.
5. Curl the petals of the flowers and leaves by applying heat on the edges with a candlelight. Do not put the flowers or leaves directly on the candlelight. Leave a distance of about an inch.
6. Glue the rhinestones on the flowers and glue the flowers and leaves on the wreath.
7. Finish your wreath with a ribbon.
Isn’t it beautiful and Spring-y?
