Hi Friends, Mindi here, from MyLove2Create. I am happy to be back at Oh My! Creative. I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for spring….it just isn’t coming fast enough!
I decided to make a Beaded Spring Wreath to brighten my spirits, since it was snowy and cold this morning. Do you think subliminal messages work with the weather? “Think green, think Spring!!”
Even if the weather isn’t going to listen, at least I have a fun wreath now! Let me show you how to make one, it is pretty simple.
I started with this wreath I had in my craft stash. I needed it white, so I grabbed some Gorilla tape, and wrapped it around the whole thing.
I wandered around looking for something to cover it with. I ended up remembering these car seat cushions that my father-in-law gave me. He never used them because the thread holding all the beads together was falling apart. So of course he thought of me! And of course I would use them for something eventually…which happened to be today!
I started on the outside and hot glued them in rows. When I got to the front of the wreath, I started adding some of the brown beads to add some color.
Once all the beads were glued on I grabbed some ribbon, and wrapped and glued it on. Then I made a bow for the front.
I love it! Simple, pretty, and green for spring…
So do you have any beads laying around? This is a great way to repurpose them!
Come check it out! And have a great day!
