Spring door

It is spring or so the March calendar indicates.  Here in Colorado it is still winter, we get most of our snow in April but right now our March has been warm, very warm even balmy.  It was 72 today!  I'll take it because it could snow here tomorrow.  There's a saying in Colorado, 'if you don't like the weather wait an hour, it will change'.  True but I love the weather here, every day it is sunny and though sometimes cold the sunshine helps.  Even in the summer when 90 degrees there is a breeze blowing and without humidity it doesn't feel that hot. 

Today I'm sharing a super cute and easy spring craft I make in less than 30 minutes.  The best part was that it cost me $8.00 to make!  If you have more things on hand yours could be even cheaper!  I think it is super cute.
You will need:
An old frame - you could make one out of wood (I got mine at Hobby Lobby in January for $9.00)
Faux flowers of your choice (I had these on hand)
Ribbon - I also had this on hand
At least 2 packs of small canvas triangles - I got mine at Hobby Lobby
1 pack of string - I used jute twine -  I got at Hobby Lobby
1 pack of small clothes pins - I got mine at Hobby Lobby
Stamps - I had these on hand, you could just hand write each letter with marker

I took the frame I used for my Valentine's Day door décor and removed the heart. 
I then spun the frame upside down so the flowers were on the bottom but you can put your flowers wherever you want.  I didn't want to glue my flowers to the frame since I plan on changing them out for the fall. 
But if you want this permanent you will need to hot glue your faux flowers to the frame.  I think in the corner would look really cute!

Here is a link to the Valentine's Day door -

This is what the Valentine's Day door looked like -
Next using my stamps and a stamp pad I stamped SPRING out on my triangles. One letter on each triangle.  I also stamps a Fleur de Lis and a flower each on their own triangle.

My next step was to cut a length of the jute twine.  Make it longer than the frame and tie it in a knot on each side of the frame.  You are making a sort of clothes line.  Don't worry about the twine itself or the knots; you won't see it all when you are done.  I pulled the twine as tight as I could and made the knots as tight as I could.  I then tucked any extra twine from the ends behind the frame.

Using the small clothes pins hang your word on the line.

I then used a ribbon and tied a knot in one end and looped it around the frame to hand it from the door. 

That is it!  It turned out Super Cute!!!  I love it because it isn't your normal door wreath. 

What do you think?

  1. How cute is this! I think a door is a great place for a welcome message to friends. It says, "Come on in, y'all."

    I found you via The Scoop where we are almost neighbors.
