A wreath for my front door

I have been seeing beautifully decorated front doors with gorgeous wreaths for the Spring since early March. Unfortunately I was buried in snow back then and nothing seemed Spring like around here.
I know I am behind the ball game here, but finally last week I had some time to dedicate to my front door.
I went to Michaels and I got  a wreath for $16.00, I knew if I hunted around the thrift store for a while I could of done better price wise, but I didn't want to get to this project at the end of the summer!! :)
One of my favorite flowers are peonies. So I got a few of silk ones at Michaels as well. I guess being late in the season had some benefits as they were 60% off!! :)

 The process was very easy. I just inserted the flowers steams into the wreath, and tied them up on the back with some twine.

And there you have it. It was very easy!

 I added a couple of flags for the Holiday. 

I have no green thumb what so ever, so my ferns are looking very sad. I have been feeding and watering them religiously in hopes they will come back!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project! 



  1. Cristina - Lovely Springy wreath! Love the addition of the flags for the holidays.


  2. Your wreath is very pretty! I love homemade wreaths. Grapevine wreaths are the secret huh? I'd say you are ready for summer now. I love how pretty your house looks from the outside too. I have good luck with my ferns and I don't do anything to them other than watering them but mine are on a covered porch. Ferns prefer shade. If yours aren't thriving, they may be getting too much sun.

  3. What a pretty wreath and the pink really pops against your black door!

  4. Beautiful wreath...and loved that you added the flags for another beautiful look for the holiday...and love your very pretty front porch!!
