Spring Wreath

I don't know anyone who isn't looking forward to Spring!
 When I found this cute vintage child's rake I knew it would add the perfect touch to my Spring wreath...

To make this wreath you'll need:

18 inch Grapevine Wreath
Child’s Rake
Wire
Moss and other natural elements
Glue
Seed Packets
Twine
Chalkboard Paper with an Adhesive Back
Scrapbook Paper
Ruler
Pencil
Scissors
Hole Punch
Chalk

Start by wiring the rake onto the grapevine wreath. If you are unable to find a child's rake, use the head of a large rake.

Glue on moss and other natural elements...
Tuck a seed packet in with the moss.

Add seed packets to the rake tines...

Next, create a banner using chalkboard paper and scrapbook paper. Cut out triangles from the adhesive back chalkboard paper that measure 1 ½ inches wide by 2 inches high.

 Peel the back and stick onto scrapbook paper. 



Cut scrapbook paper slightly larger than the chalkboard paper to form a pennant. Use a hole punch to make holes in the top corners of each pennant. 

String the pennants onto twine.



 Use chalk to write “welcome” on the banner and tie it to the wreath.



Now, I'm raking in smiles when friends come to visit!


In the Fall, I think I will remove the seed packets and add these cute whimsical leaves from Patience Brewster...
