Spring Wreath

So-I love LOVE spring.  I love the flowers, warm weather, how green everything is...I even love...the rain!  I currently have green things growing in my garden...with I am hoping that this weekend sometime I will end up with pretty flowers.  After all, my neighbor already has daffodils in her yard.  Which actually brings me to my project today.  My husband's favorite color is yellow.  It is a bright and cheery color actually.  My mother gave me an old grapevine wreath.  I needed a wreath for my front door.  So I went to DT and purchased a few (like 6-7) stems of daffodils.

I cut each bloom off and hot glued it to the wreath...

Once I had finished this and had it on the door, I wanted to do something for the inside too.  I had a couple sprigs of daffodil, some green hydrangea from my topiary project.  I had seen some Easter lilies at DT-so I went back.  I bought the white Easter lilies and a new wreath-about 12" so its not front door worthy.

At first I wasn't sure what to do-if I should just use the lilies, or what.  So I played.

I am a HUGE fan of symmetry.  I may have OCD (I'll find out this semester in psych-haha).  Plus I knew I wanted to add the color of the other flowers and not just have white.  So I tried this:

I wasn't exactly a fan.  So I scraped it and started over AGAIN.  This time, I ended up with:

Much better-but I still had that green hydrangea...

Ah-that's better.  It just sort of fills it out a little better-not really there for looks as much as volume.  I love it.  It is now hanging at the end of our hallway to the bedrooms.  Sorry, I don't have a picture of that yet.

My spring break is almost over.  :( I am sad, it doesn't seem like it has been nearly long enough.  AND I am not ready to go back to school yet.  I enjoy the break and getting to craft and decorate.  Our house has been sparse for far too long.

I hope you have enjoyed my wreaths!
