Spring Wreath for Metamorphosis Monday

Do you remember when I found the wreath,
in the clearance aisle of Home Goods?

It was originally $80...seriously???
It was reduced to $39.99.
Then it went down to $18.00.
I finally bought it for 1/2 off at
a whopping $9 bucks

It had a few bare spots but I
just took sprigs from the back &
hot glued them into those empty spaces.

I also pulled off all the faux berries.

I added some spring-like silk flowers that
I had in the house.

Added some ribbon, too.

I'm very happy with the transformation!

The glittery ribbon came from the Dollar Store.
I'm going back for more as
I've decided the iron planter needs a bow, too.

I had enough flowers left over to fill
the wrought iron planter, too.
I FINALLY put in a cocoa mat liner to
cover up the stems.

I had a bunny tucked in there for Easter,
but now it just works well for Spring.

If you'd like to see some other
transformations, go to

  8. So much prettier than what I came up with this spring.

  9. Rett, this looks perfect for spring. You are so clever! I love the look on your glass door. It all gives a feeling of fresh springtime. Good idea to add a bow to the planter on the wall. They look so nice together.

  10. Oh how lovely! It is so Springy!
    Be careful a bird doesn't nest in it..I opened the door once and a bird was in my wreath and flew in the house! Took us an hour to get it out! Freaked me out...old Irish superstition..a bird in the house will soon hear of a death..Oh those Irish people..they had a million of them!
