Happy Hump Day!!
I’m super excited to share a cute & easy spring wreath idea with you today! I made this little wreath over the weekend & I’m so happy with how it turned out!
What do you think?! Doesn’t the green color just scream spring?!
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely ready for the warm, spring temps & I’m looking forward to things greening up in our area! I’m hoping this wreath is the start of many more green things just around the corner!
Here is what you’ll need….
Leaving the clear wrap on the straw wreath, I applied a generous amount of Mod Podge to the wreath using a sponge brush.
Then I stuck the wreath down inside the cake pan & began “smushing” (technical term) the split peas to the wreath using my hand.
Be prepared to get your hands a little messy & also be prepared to have a million split peas to sweep up off the floor when your done! I honestly thought the cake pan would catch them all, but turns out those little suckers fly all over the place! Or maybe I’m just a messy crafter! 🙂
I kept repeating the above steps, covering the straw wreath as well as thoroughly as possible…..
Once I had the wreath covered pretty well, I sat it aside & let it dry overnight. The next day I went back & filled it all the left over bare spots.
This project wasn’t difficult to do, it was just a little time consuming trying to fill in all the bare spots. Like I said earlier, I think a green wreath form would have made a world a difference and definitely would have saved me some time!
Simple & sweet!!
p.s. I think this would make a great wreath for St. Patrick’s Day too!!
Are you ready for Spring as much as I am?
Have you made a wreath for St. Patrick’s Day or Spring for your front door?
