DIY Spring Wreath and Banner Reveal!


Happy Monday! It truly is a happy Monday for me, because I worked all weekend and now I have 4 days off - WOOHOO! I am hoping we can finish our guest bedroom during that time, and then maybe I can finally show it off on here! Fingers crossed!
This is a super simple wreath idea that my sis actually brainstormed but didn't want to make, so I made it for her. It's so easy it doesn't even need a tutorial, just the pictures!

I got everything I needed at Hobby Lobby, as usual. I used 3 flower stems, but I think it almost could have used four. Go when they have sales and you can make this for so so cheap! I am so happy with how this turned out and she was too. I am going to have to make one for myself when I get a little more time on my hands!
 Remember here when I showed you how to make this DIY banner?
Well my sister got her engagement pictures back with the banner in them! We plan to use the banner again somehow at the wedding reception. I didn't think I would like any other pics as well as my engagement ones, but hers give mine a run for their money! They are so cute, and I can't wait for June to hurry up and get here! See what you think!


And how adorable is Sadie, their dog? It's Ollie's puppy cousin, and they are best buds! She is much more patient with a camera though. She used the same photographer we did, Josh from Sunlit Images. He is amazing!

Happy Monday!!

  17. You should really think about opening up an etsy store or just selling these on your blog. I always say how I'm going to make wreaths and banners and still haven't gotten around to it. I want a banner so badly for my fireplace! Keep rocking out for DIY's I'm jealous of.
