|Silk flower front door wreath $49.00|
I'm about ready for spring! This hasn't been a bad winter compared to last winter when we got buried in snow. We've had some warmer days also, but regardless, by the beginning of February, we want longer days, warm sunshine, and visits to the beach. We are tired of our heavy winter coats, scarves, and gloves. Spring can't come soon enough! I have started to work on my spring wreaths in my etsy shop. You can check out my Etsy shop at my Angels and Everlastings Etsy shop. I'd also like to introduce my wreath making classes. This wreath sells for $49.00 plus postage in my Etsy shop. Would you like to create your own beautiful spring wreath at a fraction of the cost? If you are in the Boston, Massachusetts area and are interested in hosting a wreath making night, I will bring everything needed. I will carefully select flowers in coordinating colors and shapes so that you can create a beautiful piece that you will be proud to display on you front door. The cost is $20.00 per person - 5 person minimum. I can do home craft nights, women's groups, church fellowships, or senior center activities. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. References are available upon request.
The key to making a harmonious design is in picking the right elements, color and a variety of shapes that coordinate well.
|Large focal flower|
For a pleasing wreath design you need a focal point - either a ribbon bow or a few (1 to 3) large flowers. This wreath has a pretty purple plaid ribbon as the focal point.
|Ashland Bunches from Michael's|
|Smaller detail flowers|
|Long shaped silk flowers|
I chose to add a bright yellow flower in a more elongated shape along with a few smaller lavender flowers to brighten and add detail.
|Tall and thin shaped eucalyptus and silk grass|
You should also include some long and thin shaped pieces. This will add some length to your design and create a eye pleasing design. Any long thin greenery, or long thin silk flowers work well. Along with the long silk leaves that came with the bunches, I used a long thin fuzzy purple silk flower and eucaluptus to add length and structure.
Fill in any holes or spaces between the flowers with any leaves from your silk flowers and bunches and you are done.
