Some help with my spring wreath...

I had two helpers assist me in making my spring wreath yesterday.

After a while, I decided it would just be easier to give Luna and Josie their own yarn.  

I made this same yarn-style wreath last year.  See this post.

 It was originally inspired by a wreath made by dear Elizabeth (Creative Breathing).

A few strategically placed straight pins hold the yarn in place.

The flowers were recently acquired from Target in the $1 bin.  I also got the Toadstools from the Target $1 bins in 2012.


If you can't find the flowers at Target, you can also make them out of felt.  You can find a great tutorial for for making felt flowers on Elizabeth's blog.

 I love the gingham ribbon against the wreath.

A bit of spring.
