- Put a small amount of hot glue at the bottom of the flower stem and tuck the stem into the grape vine wreath. When you place the stems into the wreath the tulips flower should remain close to the wreath with all the extra stem tucked within the grape vine.

Spring Grass Wreath
This playful spring wreath is all about fresh green grass and sprouting flowers in your lawn.
What You Will Need:
- 8” craft foam wreath
- Yarn fur in lime green
- Small fabric daisies
- Dressmaking pins with pearl ends
- 2 feet of ribbon
- Small wooden dowel (optional for flag)
- Small piece of card stock (optional for flag)
- Markers (optional for flag)
- Tape (optional for flag)
How To Make A Spring Grass Wreath:
- Wrap the yarn around the wreath so that none of the wrath is visible. To do this you will need to wrap the yarn so that it is very close together. Continue wrapping the yarn until the entire wrath is covered then tie the yarn to the wreath and cut the excess yarn. If desired you can place a pin on the back of the wreath at the end of the yarn piece to help hold the yarn in place.
- Place the fabric small flowers on the wreath by pushing a dressmaking pearl pin the center of the flower to hold the flower in place. Ideally you will want the pearl end of the pin to match the size and color of the center of the fabric flowers being used.
- Cut 2 feet of ribbon and loop the ribbon around the wrath. Tie a knot and hang the wreath on a hook on the front door.
- If desired you can cut out a 3 inches by 1 inch rectangle out of card stock. Cut out a triangle from the right hang edge to create a flag shape. Wrap a small section of the flag around the wooden dowel and tape into place. Decorate the flag using markers with your own spring greeting, such as bare feet welcome. Stick the flag into the wreath.

Tie the top of the two ribbons together with a secure bow. Hang the boots on the door and fill each boot with colorful spring flowers. Get creative, create a bird’s nest with robin’s eggs in the boots or incorporate whimsical bugs and butterflies on floral picks.
