Here in the Celebrations offices we're pretty excited. Not only is spring here, but this year, we've got an office with windows that open wide to let it tumble right in!
In an effort to dress up our space a bit, to mirror all the creativity, crafting and celebrating that goes on in here, our intern Chris and I decided to try our hand at decorating - on a budget.
He painted one of our walls with chalkboard paint - more to come on that later - and then helped me make this incredibly cute and trendy spring wreath with some crafting supplies Jaclyn found over at CreateforLess.com.
All in all it cost us LESS than $20 to make and we've got enough supplies left over to spruce up another door in our humble abode.
Neutral, natural decor is a big trend this year, so rather than covering our Styrofoam wreath with a whole lot of fake branches, we decided to wrap it in twine.
Then, to add lots of spring color, we layered some faux flowers strategically to one side and hung with a bright blue satin ribbon.
Chic, yet cheap, sophisticated, yet simple - it took about an hour to make - we're loving our latest decoration and bet you'll want to recreate at home.
1 Circular 10" Styrofoam wreath
300 ft roll of twine (we used about 200 ft to cover our wreath)
Paper flowers pack (we used this one)
Ribbon to hang the wreath
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Wrap your wreath with the twine. We did ours in sections to more easily maintain the close wrapping we wanted. To do this, cut the twine in about 20 inch pieces. Tape one end to the Styrofoam and wrap. Then, repeat. Go around the whole wreath, making sure to tape only on the back of the wreath.
Step 2: Once your wreath is completely wrapped in twine, add on your flowers with the hot glue gun. You can place as many as you'd like on there.
Step 3: Secure your ribbon with the hot glue gun - place a dab of glue on the back of the ribbon where it meets the back of the wreath. Next, glue the two top ends together. For a neater finish, fold the top of the ribbon over and secure with more glue.
