Spring Front Door Decor

Well, you won't believe it but I did it! I dug, crawled, searched, panicked and all I found was this...
An old sign, with my favorite saying, 4 wooden flowers, a heart shaped wreath and some small dowels. I was really hoping for a wreath to put stuff on. Since I put my decor on my wall next to my door and not on my door it needs to be bigger so the little heart shaped wreath was not going to work. BUT! The creative juices started to flow and I went and got out my ribbon and my spring colored craft paints..
I took the sign and ran out to the garage, pulled out my miter saw that hasn't been used in a long, long while. Chopped that baby down to the size I wanted...
Sanded and sanded...
Back inside I went, because it was dang cold outside, and painted and painted. I also made leaves for the wooden flowers with some green ribbon like this...
Cut them in this shape and pinch the square end together, it kinda looked like a leaf. Then I just hot glued them in under the flowers.

Put it all together and "I (heart) Spring" is what I came up with...

I was surprised, I might even keep this. It's not what I had in mind for the front door but it is unique. I can also say "IT WAS FREE". You should try it, making something with only what you already have. Let me know how it turns out.


  1. Excellent! I love the heart wreath and your creative use of the sign. Looks great!. xx

  2. Very nice! Way to be resourceful too. I'm impressed with your power tool skills especially. Maybe you could do a "Power Tools for Girls 101" post sometime? I'm ok with a drill, but that's about it :)

  3. So cute! I'm inspired to make something for Spring now.

  4. Very sweet...and congrats on your bloggy award!

  5. So fun! Those hearts wreaths are so cute and look great with the sign. I heart Spring too!
