Welcoming Spring. . .

It's officially time to be Welcoming Spring. . .
On Crooked Creektt Spring begins at the front door!



"Mr. Ed" smiling as he greets our guests!

As he should,
you see, dear ones, he was a h u g e help in making our Spring wreath.



Both, "Mr. Ed" and I had seen a unique square wreath on facebook.
 Once, I determined how the wreath was made,
we set out to try one of our own creations!

* * * * * * * Tutorial * * * * * * *

First,
we made the purchase of our initial "C" at Hobby Lobby.

Next,
we purchased two stems. The first of soft buttery yellow florals;
the second off~white with hints of green delicate flowers.

We also, purchased one bag of Spanish Moss.



Using an 8" X 10" wooden frame,
"Mr. Ed" hot glued the Spanish Moss to the front and sides of the frame.

Then, 
he painted the "C" in our soft Sherwin ~ Williams Paper White.



Once the Spanish Moss had 'set'
and the initial "C" had dried, I began the designing and gluing of the florals.

I made a single tan burlap bow 
and attached it to the upper left hand corner of the frame.


The larger soft buttery yellow flowers 
are some that were in my bin of Spring florals.
I attached them at several of the corners.

The initial "C"is tied on to the frame using a thin green ribbon.

I adore how it brightens On Crooked Creektt's front door!




The unique square shape is a 'perfect' fit  
for the unique square 'peek' window opening.




I've been "photo bombed"!

On Crooked Creektt,
both "Mr. Ed" and I are Welcoming Spring!


Until next time. . .

Love your new wreath and the unusual shape. We can't put one up any more due to birds nesting in the last one and then flying in the house when we opened the door and scared them. It was a mess of do-do on the door's window too. yuck.

Your wreath is just too beautiful sweet friend. I love it at your Pretty door. Your Mr. Ed looks very proud of the wreath too.
Thank you always for your sweet and kind visit.
Hugs,

What a pretty and different little wreath. Letters are so popular, I buy a couple then think "what am I going to do with that?"
