Spring Wreaths

I have my glue gun fired up and a can of spray paint at hand but my project isn't quite ready to share. Check back later for what is sure to be the most wonderfully glorious spring wreath ever.

In the meantime, check out these other wonderfully glorious spring wreaths.



I adore this gorgeous egg wreath that's for sale at the Urban Farmhouse. I wish I lived closer so I could try and convince her to take 383 of my felt pins in exchange for the wreath.



Southern Lagniappe gets her nest (and watering can) on.



A yarny, spring wreath from Design...Stat.



How about this adorable paper flower wreath from Dana and Carol's etsy shop?



Jamie from Paint Till You Faint made her own chocolate egg wreath. YUM!

I love these wreaths but the one from Urban Farmhouse is my favorite! I just visited their site and found out that they are about two hours form where we live. I just might have to make a trip to visit... it looks like such a neat shop. Thanks for sharing!

What great ideas! Cant wait to see yours~

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

oh - I know yours is going to be even better. I bought some fun things to do a spring wreath, but alas, they may go into my "to do" closet along with many other "must halves." Just not enough hours in this week. :)

Those wreaths are adorable! Can't wait to see your creation. Jackie

Astrid said...

Oh my! It is time to change out that wreath for something Happy, Cheerful and Spring-y. It's hard to think about spring when there's snow on the ground though. sigh.

Pretty Organizer said...

Cracking up. I thought the first wreath was covered in potatoes! Couldn't quite get potatoes to tie in to spring.

Just bought me some dollar store resin birds to spray paint. They're pretty gosh awful looking on my hutch right now. It looks like I'm 85 years old and collecting bargain junk!

Chocolate egg wreath... favorite.

Songbirdtiff said...

Oh my! What creative ideas! I always go blank when I try to think of something cute for a wreath.

Thank you!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Still Learning said...

Oh, my heavens. I must find a way to make me that very first wreath pictured with the eggs. I must have that bad boy. Don't you just love to make wreaths? I know I do.

They are all so cute. I especially like the last one. My fav!

I noticed your little bird figurines on your first picture. I also admired your other bird figurines you painted. I purchased some. They were very dirty so I put them in the dishwasher and they completely dissolved. I posted this an mentioned your blog that you inspired me to buy bird figurines.

Have you thought about making a wreath with your 300+ pins? Just a thought...loads of work!

Her shop is in my parents town and the owner of the Urban Farmhouse is my sister's neighbor. How cool is that...he he!!! Her shop is my all time favorite place. I visited her shop a few weekends ago and found some great goodies. I will be posting pictures of them on my blog later this week. Come on over for a peek.

Living on the E.D.G.E said...

I forgot to tell you that my new blog is Invitedinn.blogspot.com. I am still working on trying to delete my old blog. Any ideas?

Urban Farmhouse said...

Hey there! Melissa at Invited In shared your blog with me and it's fun! Looks like a great group of ladies too, hi all! You have me "cracking" up (pun intended-egg wreaths) about the potato wreath, too funny. Actually, the wreath is made with faux egg forms that have been rolled in REAL crushed quail egg shells...the effect is stunning! I put one on the larger ones on the front door of my shop with some wide jute ribbon and it sold within an hour! I was sad to see it go. But I'll just have to put together another and hang it out there too. Happy spring everyone! The peepers are singing!!

Sandy Toes said...

Anyone in their RIGHT mind would trade pins for a wreath! That first one is beautiful, I like the paper flower wreath too. Can't wait to see yours!

Jessica said...

So beautiful...every single one! They make me feel like the wait is almost over. I was feeling like spring wasn't coming this year. Thanks for cheering us up!

Flax and spindle said...

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Beautiful, Kimba! I'd love to invite all your readers over for a Spring Fluffing party on March 18th (next Wed.), so I hope you'll join in too with your spring wreath. It's gonna be fun!

I've gotta get busy myself!
