I wanted something that was both spring and summer-like so that she could leave it up for an extended period of time.
Here is what I came up with:
I started with a plain mdf letter from Michael's and hot glued moss to it.
I can't believe how long that took! Every time I thought I was done I would find another bare spot. Here it is halfway through looking wild and woolly.
Once it was trimmed and pressed down it looked a lot better.
I used faux orchids from the dollar store and added little orange daisy charms to the center of each of the white ones. I also added in some brown berries and some green and white buds.
Lastly I found a cute little clip-on butterfly for the top corner. I added a wide green ribbon to hang the wreath by.
I love how pretty it is.
Lively colours, not too busy, and I love those shades of green.
I hope she does too!
It was also my aunt's birthday on Saturday. I've been saving these suede-covered storage boxes for her forever. This particular shade of green is one of her favourites. And I thought the wide brown satin ribbon set it off nicely.
I used three colours of paint chips to make a tag and just cut the circles freehand with scalloped scissors.
She also loves purple so I added the flower for colour.
Love it! Coming up with interesting wrapping is always my favourite part of giving a gift.
Tom and I also redid the gallery wall in the living room, and he rode his bike with me while I ran 5K outside for the first time. Perfect day!
I'm linking up to these parties this week!
