Easy Spring Wreaths

One of the best ways to say hello to spring is with a bright and cheerful wreath for your mantel or front door. And while you can always buy one, making it yourself is a much more affordable and rewarding option. You know we love our “DIY” projects!

This week, we’ve gone around the web looking for creative wreath ideas that are also easy to make - just follow the links for the how-to’s and have fun! First up, this simple tulip wreath by U Create is so pretty. We love the choice of colors.
