Spring is the perfect time to not only spruce up the inside of your home, but also the front porch. This front porch had a plain white rocker & a wrought iron “initial” plaque on the brick fascia. Not only did I add a delicate white blooming plant in the clay pot on the table, but I also added a square-shaped, plain greenery wreath around the wrought iron wall plaque. I purchased a yard of springy fabric, in a pink stripe, from the dollar/yard table at Wal mart and stitched together a new cover for an old, outdated pillow. Then, I hot glued a pink daisy right in the center of the pillow to announce the season with a touch of whimsy. Finally, I wired a few loops of sheer pink, floral ribbon together to create a bow & added it to the square greenery wreath to bring my pink accent color up. It is such a light & welcoming touch to an otherwise plain front porch setting.
Can’t find a square wreath of greenery? You could easily make it yourself, by adding artificial greenery picks (available at craft stores) to a square Styrofoam wreath. Or, for an even less expensive idea ~ cut your square wreath shape out of a pizza box bottom & top, glue them together for strength. Hot glue moss to the front, side & insides of the cardboard frame, cut the back stems of the greenery picks very short, add a touch of hot glue to the end of them & push them into the cardboard. [I found my square wreath at QVC.com]. And here’s another internet source, I recently found, for a pretty square wreath: www.plowhearth.com (search English Lavendar Square).
Enjoy the Creativity!
