I couldn't take it anymore. I had to get some flowers. Once the flowers were in the pots, I had to make a wreath. This is how it happens right? One thing leads to another. I was going for easy, simple, and earthy. I'm also currently obsessed with butterflies. These cuties flew in from Michaels (about $1 each on sale).
I also picked up a wooden wreath form and some moss.
I bought a moss mat because I knew I wanted to wrap the wreath.
I painted the butterflies with some white outdoor craft paint.
Iced coffee makes any project do-able. While the paint was drying I started wrapping my wreath form using a hot glue gun. I cut the moss mat into small strips then wrapped and glued.
I wrapped the moss all the way around so that the wood wouldn't rub against my front door. When I was done wrapping it was time to bring out the vacuum cleaner.
Yeah - that moss is messy. Once the butterflies were dry I hot glued them in place. Then I used some fun polka dot patterned tape (also from Michaels) to cover my wreath hanger.
Here's my mossy, butterfly wreath on the front door.
The white butterflies really stand out.
I mean you can see them from the street.
They're so fun and spring-y. The pink flowering trees are peach trees.
Soon the pink flowers will be gone, and these trees will be covered in pretty red leaves. I wanted something tall and colorful by the front door, and these trees definitely fit the bill. I filled the the small white urns with miniature boxwoods.
I still have quite a few things I want to do out here landscaping wise; good thing I have a helper.
It was pajama day at school in case you were wondering. And yes, that pink blob you saw in the above photo is a pig-shaped watering can.
She rides pink bikes, wears pink pajamas, uses pink pig-shaped watering cans, and rocks pink glittery Toms.

What's not to love about spring?! Do you have something springy hanging on your front door? Anyone else in planting mode? Who wants a pig-shaped watering can? That thing cracks me up - the water comes through the pig's nose holes! HA! (It doesn't take much people.)
