My Spring Wreath

I’ve loved my rolled book page wreath since the day I made it! First is was an autumn wreath.

Then, it transformed into a Christmas wreath

And now it’s blossomed into a spring wreath and is by far my favorite!!

After going on a lunch date with the boyfriend on friday (just this past friday!) we decided to do a little thrifting at one of my favorite shops and I found these small shutters, they were white but I’ve been in love with the aqua color for some time (as you can see from my blog header and background) so, I brought these babies home and spray painted them yesterday morning.

Then I got to work on my wreath. I wanted to make a new spring wreath but I decided, instead, to repurpose this one. So I got to work. I added a few of the cherry blossom branches that I made following a tutorial that I had saved on my pinterest board a while back (I tried to link to it but it didn’t work) and then I just added a chalboard tag (one of my favorite things) and there you have it!

Aren’t those shutters just the most perfect backdrop for it? I must say that this little project has prompted a total change of the color scheme in our living room but we are loving the end result! I’ll post pictures of the rest of the updates as soon as I get a chance.

Here’s one last shot of it!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!

    • Thank you &welcome to my home in blogland! (: I had the idea of using shutters in the back of my mind for a while but I hadn’t ventured out to find some bcs I didn’t even know where to start but I got lucky and found them when I wasn’t even looking! πŸ˜‰

  1. Hi I’m a new follower and found you on Debbiedoo’s Newbie Link Party! I too, am new to blogging, about 3 months now. I’d like to be a follower but couldn’t find a link for it. I love your idea with the shutters! It just gave me inspiration for a problem I’ve been trying to figure out with a cabinet in my kitchen. : )

  2. Hi, there!! Thank you so much for your visit and your comment! How exciting to meet newbies such as myself! (: I get most of my comments on my facebook page when I link my posts to it to share with my friends but none of them are bloggers so it gets a little lonely here in blogworld when you don’t know many fellow bloggers!! I just added the follow button at the top of my page so hopefully it will allow you to follow my blog now and I will most definitely go over to yours and follow right now!! Thanks again, and I’m so flattered that you loved the shutter idea and so happy that I could inspire you!! (:
