DIY Spring Wreath

Today I made a spring time wreath that can also carry on as an Easter one as well. I used a Dollartree wire wreath mold, 5 bundles of flowers (these were leftover after tea party) and a rabbit banner from Targets dollar spot. That comes out to about nine dollars and you can make a beautiful wreath! 

I like to start with an idea in my head and warp it as I'm working. The flowers are the tricky part because you have to twist the wires all around which isn't easy and takes some thought placement wise. Remember: with fake flowers you can swap the colors around from stem to stem if you think a color is taking over a section and you want to break it up. 

Then I just took my rabbits and figured out my pattern and how many I wanted to use. Tied then off and voila! My front door is a nice green so I didn't add anything dazzling above or around the rabbits because my door will do the hard work.

Playdoh Recipe

1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 cup flour
Few drops of food coloring, flavoring or glitter

Step 1
Combine water, oil, cream of tartar, salt, color and flavoring over medium heat.

Step 2
Stir. Once bubbling reduce heat and continue stirring.

Step 3
Turn off heat and add flour and glitter.

Step 4
Mix up until everything combined. Knead if you wish. Then let it set in an air tight container until no longer warm.

For these I used two drops of red food coloring, a few splashes of raspberry flavor and pink & purple glitter. I ended up making the recipe twice because one go wasn't big enough for multiple kids.
