{wreaths: simpledaisy style}

Hello.... hope you had a fabulous weekend:)
You know I am truly going crazy with this weather!! This is the time of the year when I start to get obsessed with the 16 day forcast, just hoping to see a 50 degree day. I haven't seen it on there yet....but I have my fingers crossed.
I took a walk around the house today....and look at what is poking their sleepy little heads out of the ground:)
At least the daffodils know that spring is right around the corner:)


Today I spent the day crafting! You know I love that..
Let's see what I made.
But first...the thing about crafting and being creative is to just keep it simple! Don't try and make things too complicated.
Sometimes you can even re-work something you already have.
That's just what I did with this
wreath. Remember it from this autumn! I love to make winecork wreaths. Simple and cute:) I just changed out the yellow daisies for white ones. walllaaa it's a new wreath:) Don't try and reinvent the wheel, right?!?!?
Don't you just love the blue door?!?? I do...it makes me so happy:)I forgot to show you what I added to my front door after seeing someting similar on Lime in the Coconut. {the hello} You have to give credit where credit is due...right?!?!?

I think it looks charming...

Now I just can't wait until I can put some happy little flowers in those pots. Here's how it looks in the summer:)
You know my love affair with daises and so couldn't resist making a really simple wreath.Get yourself a good hot glue gun, one of those floral wreath forms and lots of daisy bunches. I just pop the tops off and hot glue them to the wreath.I love it...turned out so adorable! At least I think so:)
I ended up hanging it in our bedroom!Next I made another wreath....in my favorite color..TURQUOISE!
It turned out fabulous.Get a wreath form & spray paint it aqua blue.After it dries...glue on those glass things that people put in vases with flowers!
Oh my gosh...it turned out better than expected! I love it.
Now I just need to find the perfect spot for it!!It's so great to be crafty!
What crafts do like to do!?!?! Oh and let me know if you give these little crafts a whirl:)

Hope you have a really wonderful week:)

  1. Clever girl!!! I love your front door...I missed out on the "before". What did you do to the front door after you saw something on Linda's blog? White trim? I need a lift for my own blue front door...looking for ideas...

  5. Ok. I'm making the turquoise wreath...that is tooo cute! I think it would be awesome on your dining room table as the centerpiece with some fresh flowers in the middle....some "daisies" maybe??
    OMG.....just finished re-doing my bedroom in shabby chic and need something for one wall. A huge wreath made like this would be perfect hanging by vintage ribbon on a mirror!!!!! Thanky SD...for your creativity.....

  6. I just had to check outside to see if any daffodils were popping up here too and they are. The turquoise wreath is fab. It must look so pretty when the sun hits it. P.S. the hello on the door is so unexpected.
