Hello again, here we are celebrating the first day of spring. Spring is by far my favourite season of the year. I love seeing all the spring bulbs in full bloom, especially the snow drops and the crocus. I am a keen gardener and spring is the start of an exciting new year in my garden. I grow my own vegetables and potatoes are the first thing to go in the ground. I love the springtime. It is the most amazing time of the year.
Feeling inspired yet? I love traditional cottage garden plants in my flower garden and these flowers remind me so much of primroses and polyanthus. I have fond memories of polyanthus as a child, being ill with salmonella for months from school dinners and my mum picking me a bunch of polyanthus flowers to cheer me up. I was only about 7 at the time. I just love driving around the countryside and seeing all the primroses on the banks and cowslips. A true sign that summer is on the way and the flowers are there bowing their heads in the breeze to tell us summer is around the corner.
To celebrate, I am using my Craft Buddy wired flowers (purchased off Craft Price Drop) to create a cheerful wreath to brighten up your door. It’s small enough to hang on a cupboard door handle to brighten up any space.
You will need:
- Craft Buddy Circular wreaths – I’ve used the large one in the set.
- White Gesso
- Craft Buddy Wired flowers and leaves.
- Craft Buddy butterflies.
- Craft Buddy metal embellishment (dragon fly of any other of your choice)
- Alcohol markers to colour the metal embellishment.
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun or silicon glue if you prefer.
