New SPRING Wreath I Made

I have been thinking about what I wanted on my porch for a while. I wanted to pull in the colors of my pots and flowers, but not detract from them either. This is what I came up with...
I got the wreath at Ben Franklin for $6, and used a 40% off coupon! (Best part!) If you even need a Ben Franklin coupon, you can find theme here.

I bought cherry blossom 6 stems and cut them up. They were on sale for 40% off of $3.99 each. I just stuck them in the wreath randomly.

I bought a letter for $3, and a sheet of coordinating paper for $.99. I traced the paper using the letter, cut it out, and taped it on. I was going to mod podge, but I have other plans for the letter for the near future, so I didn't want to do anything so permanent. Also, my porch is protected, so it shouldn't get wet. I hooked everything together with ribbon. Last night, it was bugging my husband when he was using the door, because the letter was clanging around. So, I just put a command strip behind it, and... problem solved!


  1. I love the plants in your planter and it really does coordinate nicely. Well done!
