Spring Wreath

My front door currently has a "cupcakes" hanger on it,
...that was super cute for Valentines Day, but it's time for it to go away until next year.
While I was browsing the isles of one of my favorite stores, the Dollar Tree, I decided to try to make a version of the cute wreaths I've seen popping up on other blogs. I bought the supplies and was out $3.23 poorer. I started with a styrofoam floral wreath, a ball of twine, and a bundle of silk dahlia bush flowers... A couple (ok, several) hot glue gun dots and about 45 minutes later I have a new front door decor!
up close :(please excuse the poor pictures...all I had on me was a camera phone)
At first I wasn't a fan of the twine because it was frayed, but now that it's finished I like it; it adds character!
However, the more I looked at it though, the more I felt like it just needed something else. I used some of the twine left over and spiraled it and hot glued it to the center of the flower.
Much better!


Love! :D
