My Mom gets a lot of catalogs in the mail... I mean A. LOT. of catalogs; and she is nice enough to keep the "good" ones for me. I saw the cutest daisy wreath in one of them months ago and wanted to recreate it for the spring. Everything I needed was at the dollar store which meant I could hang it outside and not worry about the elements messing it up!foam wreath form- $1
3 multi-coloured daisy bunches- $3
sewing pins- on hand
I found that if I took off the plastic flower backing, they lay better on the form and were easier to manipulate. The rest was so easy, I feel funny even mentioning it- just stick the flower in the form and secure with pin trying to hide it as well as possible.Ridiculous tip #1: When my fingers got sore from the pins, I used the plastic backing from one of the flowers to help me push because I was too lazy to get up and get a thimble. It worked just as well!
I think it looks so pretty and springy on the front door, it just makes me happy every time I come home! Next year, I'm making one twice as big!!
