Easter is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me preparing for any holiday can be stressful. You have to prepare the food, decorate the house, clean the house, rearrange the furniture to make sure there are enough seats for everyone, and for this holiday hide the eggs. Now this is a home and living blog so I’m here to help you with the decorating. This weeks Sunday blog is Spring inspired to make all that preparation just a little easier.
Decorating can be anything from new pillows on the couch maybe a colorful throw blanket some bright pictures on the wall to help welcome in the spring season but a very important piece of decor is something that doesn’t usually come to mind right away. It’s the first thing that people see when they come to your house and maybe they aren’t even a guest of yours. They will still know you for your beautiful style. This important piece of decor is the decor you decide to hang on your door. There are so many different ways that you can decorate your door with the letter of your family’s last name or maybe a cute little snowman during the winter but this season is spring and easter is right around the corner.
That is why we are going to make a Pine Cone Flower Wreath. This DIY project is fast, easy, and very inexpensive. Let’s get started.
18” Grapevine wreath – this can be purchased at most craft stores or on this link https://www.afloral.com/collections/grapevine-wreaths
Pine cones – these can be found in parks or purchases at most craft stores
Paint and paint brushes
Start by painting the bottoms of each pine cone with whatever colors you would like. This part will form the petals of the flowers. Next, paint a small circle in the middle of the painted section to form the center of the flower. (see image below) Glue each painted pinecone to grape vine wreath and let it sit for 20 minutes to assure dried glue. Lastly, end with glueing or tying your ribbon which ever side you would like as the top and there you have it.
