Garland Turned Spring Wreath

My front door has been a little bare since Valentine's Day. I didn't want to store away my Valentine Cupcake Liner Wreath that I learned from Jen at TatertotsandJello. It was such a lovely wreath but alas, the seasons do change.

I had two spring garlands purchased several years ago from Michaels that I never did anything with. Never displayed it. Nothing.

It's a bit hard for me to think out-of-the-box when it comes to seeing the possibilities in something. Inspired by all of you great bloggers, I decided to rattle the space between my ears and think of what I could do with these two garlands. After purchasing a wreath form at the Dollar Tree, it hit me to deconstruct the garlands and make a spring wreath.

I used snippers and snipped away.

And, this is the result.

Not bad right? I stuck some Eastery things on the wreath when I hung it from my front door.

I would say the total cost was $1.00 for the wreath form and maybe $7 for the garlands purchased some time ago.

I love thinking out-of-the-box!

It's so pretty! I don't know why but I wouldn't have thought to remove the flowers from the garland, I would have wrapped them around and around the form and then been mad that it was too bulky!
