I bought this wreath years ago at a thrift store. It already had the yellow Forsythias attached to it. Since Forsythias are one of the first flowering shrubs to appear in Spring, they are a popular faux flower to use in March and April.
I “re-do” this wreath over and over in different themes or pretty additions. Starting with the a twig wreath and the Forsythias, this is the perfect wreath to change up as the months pass.
Did you know:
The genus is named after William Forsyth (1737–1804) a Scottish botanist who was royal head gardener and a founding member of the Royal Horticultural Society. Source
I added a pretty pale green and off white plaid ribbon bow. I have had this ribbon in my stash for several years as well. I reuse it regularly.
And then I added some sparkly little butterflies throughout the wreath. These were purchased at Michaels when they were 90% off. A package of 6 were .69 cents.
You can’t get much more simple! This wreath will slowly change as the months change. But, for a pretty and welcoming addition to your door, this is the perfect simple Spring wreath. And, not a single penny was spent to create this wreath. Everything came from my thrifty stash of pretties!
What do you have hanging on your door right now?
