Two Minute, No Glue, Cheap Spring Wreath

Yup!

Two minutes.

No glue necessary.

Under $10.

I have had this twig wreath on hand for years. Michaels had these garlands on sale for $3.99. I purchased two.All I did was wrap the two garlands around the wreath tucking in their ends and . . .

VIOLA! Spring Wreath!I love the lazy, easy, freeform nature of the wreath.

Many years ago I was at a nature park with some youth I worked with. The nature leader taught me how to make those wreaths..imagine my delight when I found these vines in my backyard.. so much fun! I often make wreaths for the different seasons.. I love yours!

I LIKE its freeform look! If you had taken acutal forsythia branches and twisted them together, that's probably about what it would look like (except it would have taken a LOT longer than two minutes). Did you see the fabulous forsythia arrangements in the Metropolitan Museum in February?

Wonderful! I like taking an old wreath and giving it new life. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,
Sandi

This looks great, Carmie! Can't get any easier than that!

I'm sorry I haven't been by, but for some reason I was having a problem when I was on your blog page {it would freeze up} for about a week. It seems to be okay today, so I guess it was nothing serious.

The wreath is lovely. Do you do a wreath for your door for all seasons? I do--they just say "Welcome" to me. Love the yellow flowers. I have those same ones in stems in a large pot on my front porch.
