Well, you know the old saying, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." This is the same coffee filter wreath that I posted a couple of weeks ago with the garland of miniature Easter post cards. Loved the look but on my front door the blowzy spring weather kept the garland in a sad state.
I had the idea of tucking eggs into the wreath, but wanted to minimize color, so I decoupaged plastic eggs with old book pages. Then added the medallions made from textured 'paper bag colored' paper, on which I added stick on letters. Next I added our lamb friend, one of my favorite spring motifs, this one is from Graphics Fairy, as usual. Last of all I added bits of French blue seam binding, just for color.
When I dug into my vintage supplies I found this old blue bell, and after cutting off the paper bell our lamb originally wore, I added it to a bit of seam binding and tied him up in a bow. I think Blue Bell is a lovely name for a lamb, don't you? Well, thanks for coming along to see the remaking of my wreath ... all the details are glued on with hot glue, so I think I am safe from any rearranging by the elements!!
Our weather has turned warm and sunny ... and I am feeling almost as frisky as a lamb myself ... hope your spring days are lovely as well!
