Spring Hoop Wreath
It is now way past Valentine's Day and definitely time to update the front door! I still love my Twine Cross but would like to pull that out Easter week. I also wanted something very cheery - I admitted on Instagram that I don't naturally love Spring, so trying to move past that and enjoy bright, fun, happy colors and the beautiful photos I can snag of blooms popping out!
This is a very easy project and made from all things I had on hand! I started with a fairly large embroidery hoop and wrapped the outer edge with fabric scraps. My favorite place to find embroidery hoops is the thrift store! They are usually about twenty-five cents each.
I found this pom pom yarn months ago at Michael's on clearance. It reminded me so much of Rachel that I thought I might make her something out of it. But, it is a huge pain to crochet with - so I've decided to use it for crafting instead. I just wrapped it around in a crazy pattern until I was satisfied. Then tied both ends to secure.
It's actually really cute just like that and you could certainly be done at this point. I wanted something meaningful so continued by adding words that have been on my heart/mind and little scrapbook paper cameos: a dad, mom, two girls and a boy. Awww, sweet!
Since my wreath is going to hang outside and it is super humid here - I laminated my words so they would last longer. That makes it tricky to take photos but definitely more durable!! Just hole-punch and tie on with twine.
What do you put on your front door for Spring?
