Spring came early in the bluegrass this year. I couldn’t be happier. I mean let’s face it – you can take the girl out of Southern California, but you can’t take the Southern California out of the girl. I’m warm blooded – born and raised. While I love having all four seasons, I really look forward to any temps that allow me to bust out the flip flops. Flip flop hooray – hooooo- heyyyyyyy. Okay – enough Naughty by Nature (please tell me you know that song).
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.
