Spring wreath

When I flipped the calendar to April, I realized it was probably time to take the heart wreath off my front door. (I put it up in February when I took down my Christmas wreath.) Around that time, Jeni posted pictures of her vintage sheets wrapped wreath tutorial and listed some kits in her Etsy shop. Perfect!

Spring wreath
Jeni sent me a bundle of vintage sheet hems, and I got to wrapping. In less than an hour, I had a finished wreath. Easy and fun.

Spring wreath Rosettes
I added the rosettes, using this tutorial.

You could use any fabric scraps to cover a wreath form. I really like the Easter-y look of the vintage sheets! (And, let's face it, this will probably be on my door until Halloween.)

I am so loving this too! I love the bright colors, just what we need this time of year while we're waiting for all those flowers to come out!

It looks beautiful! I'd proudly hang that baby well into Fall, myself.

We had a frosty the snowman folk art carving on our front door until the first day of Spring.

That looks so amazing! Wow! Thank you for sharing, I must've missed that on Jeni's blog. This definitely says spring to me :)
