Happy Monday morning! We had a brief glimpse of summer here yesterday, with temperatures in the low 80’s. Woohoo! The spray paint was flying!
Now it’s in the 60’s and raining. Oh well, such is April in Ohio.
I did get a chance to makeover an old wreath for spring yesterday.
I forgot (geez!) to take a before pic, but picture an old dusty grapevine wreath, in sort of a starburst shape, with fake red berries on the ends of the branches.
Got it? Okay.
After two coats of Rustoleum’s Apple Green spray paint, and my first clumsy attempt at fabric flowers, she looks like this. I used burlap as a “ribbon” hanger, but I’m thinking of looking for something more colorful.
Wow, think I need to clean the door?
I used this fabric that I bought for outdoor pillows to make the flowers. That, and LOTS of hot glue.
The cream colored flower is made from drop cloth canvas. I had a couple of flower shapes that I used for patterns. There’s a few stitches and more hot glue on the back to give the flower some shape.
That’s it! Nothing fancy, but it adds some color to our front porch. Now, I need to get those pillows made!!
Have a great day!
