For March, I decided to make a forsythia wreath. Forsythia is a blooming flowering plant that always signals that spring is here! I’ve always adored the bright and sunny yellow flowers of these beautiful shrubs. I’m still trying to figure out where I can plant at least one or two of these shrubs in my yard.
Forsythia Spring Wreath
To create my spring wreath, I used the burlap-wrapped wire-wreath form that I used for my February wreath. (I used straight pins to pin on the decor for my February Pink and Blue Burlap Pinwheel wreath, so I could re-use the wreath form. The burlap is pinned around the metal wreath form,with the pins hidden in the back.)
To attach my faux forsythia and baby’s breath (I bought both at the dollar store), I simply slipped the branches into the folds of my wrapped burlap wreath. Occasionally I used a pin to secure the branches to the burlap of the wreath so the flordal branches would stay where I wanted them.
When needed, I wrapped some extra burlap ribbon around the floral branches to secure them better. The ribbon that I got from the dollar store was fraying and had long strings of burlap hanging from it. I liked how the strings looked on the wreath, so I kept some of them.
To finish off my wreath I used some of the blue burlap ribbon from my last wreath to tie a small bow on top and a bigger one on the bottom. This wreath only took a few minutes to assemble! I love how this wreath adds beautiful pops of color to my home’s front door. (The K monogram you see hanging from the wreath hook on my front door has become a permanent fixture. I love it!)
