Simplified Spring Wreath

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve done any decorating. But I love changing things up for a new season, even if it’s just a little refresh!

I love having a wreath on the front door and change it out a couple times a year.

I was never quite satisfied with how it turned out. Do you ever feel that way about a project? There was nothing wrong with it, and I’m sure anyone looking at it would say it was fine. Even nice. But I didn’t love it.

As a lover of decorating and home design, my home is my canvas. The place where I get to be creative and experiment and make things pretty. Sometimes that means I get to decorate and design a whole room, and I love it when that happens, but more often, it means I am rearranging the furniture, changing out the pillows on the sofa, or redecorating the mantel.

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, you know that it will never be perfect or exactly how you want it to be. If I had time there are walls I would love to paint, light fixtures I’d change, and a bathroom I’d love to remodel. Those are things I can’t change very easily and I’ve learned to live with them.

But the wreath. The wreath was something I could change.

So even though there wasn’t anything wrong with it, I took 10 minutes to fix the wreath.

The best part about this project is that it didn’t cost anything. All I did was pull out the white flowers and rearrange the yellow flowers so they were only on part of the wreath. Then I made a burlap bow (using this tutorial), stuck it on with hot glue, and called it good.

Do you have something in your house that you don’t love? If it’s something you can change in 10 or 15 minutes, what’s stopping you?
