The first day of spring. I think the word itself is full with blooms and nightingale songs and caressing rays of the bashful sun. All this is supported by the world outside my window and to celebrate the advent of its majesty I made this adorable spring wreath. And you can make it too, because I am adding links to patterns for flowers, leaves, butterflies and beads you can use for the wreath.
To make this lovely wreath I used an embroidery hoop, a collection of flowers and leaves, yarn to cover the hoop (you can use ribbon - it's much easier), a sewing needle and thread.
If you choose to crochet around the hoop, and note that this could be awkward, take a chunky yarn so the crochet would be easier, faster and plushier.
To make the flowers, use these patterns:
Work on the arrangement of flowers around the hoop, pin and sew. I didn't want to use any glue for this step, because sometimes glue makes some projects look sloppy, and I find it much professional and better when flowers are sewn onto a project like this particular one.
When done, add a ribbon or a thread of yarn in the center and it is ready for hanging.
This makes an adorable nursery décor too, so it is a great gift for a new mom!
