Springtime Wreath

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

The latest issue of Mississippi Magazine came last week, and one of the features was on Spring door decorations. They were fantastic! I got 100% of the inspiration for this one that I made from the one called "Spring Garden Pot Wreath" available for $85 from A Daisy A Day in Jackson.

It was so easy, so fresh, and cost only about $10 to make. All it takes is a grapevine wreath (mine's about 2 feet wide or so), some raffia, some small terracotta pots, and little colorful plants:

For my plants, I used two little six-cell packs of annuals:

Planted two plants per pot:

...then tied the pots onto the wreath form with raffia. I did this part by myself, but it would have been a little easier if there had been one person to hold the wreath steady and another to tie the raffia!:
One on, four more to go:

All done!

Now I can either put it on the door, or how it is right now - hung on a wreath stand outside (on a wreath stake out in a corner of the yard would be great too!):
