Hi All! Who could use a little hopeful reminder that Spring will, indeed, arrive? If you just got dumped on over the weekend with another snow, it might feel like a distant reward. Decorating for Spring only helps remind us of the hope that it's coming, right?! So let's get on with it!
I came up with the idea for making a Baby's Breath wreath when considering how to balance the industrial presence of our pipe shelves with a softer, natural element, (there go my bohemian tendencies again). Baby's Breath is actually my favorite flower! Can we call it that? Any botanists in the house? Anyways, it's soft, whispy and wildly untamed look is perfect for covering a wreath frame!
Dreamy, isn't it?! And so easy to make. Here's what you'll need:
-12-16" wreath frame
-4 bouquets of Baby's Breath
To begin, separate sprigs of Baby's Breath from the whole stem:
Gather up 3-4 sprigs in a bunch, unravel a length of twine, and simply wrap the sprigs of Baby's Breath around the frame.
Continue on gathering up small bunches of sprigs and laying them over the previous bunch on the frame, going over top of the twine from the last bunch.
When you get all the way around, just tuck the ends of the last bunch underneath the first bunch, and tie your twine in a small knot in the back to hold everything secure.
I used the stems from the Baby's Breath to lay across the top shelf. I love how naturally structural they are!
Mission accomplished! I've seen quite a few Spring wreaths starting to circulate on Pinterest and Instagram. Here are a few other ideas, (the bottom right is by my other Sis-in-law, Megan! The other three you can click through to the source).
Hang in there, flower buds, Spring's-a-comin'! Thank you so much for stopping by!
