A few weeks ago I posted "Top 10 Spring Wreaths" and ever since then I have been trying to come up with a cute idea for my own spring wreath and I finally did it!  I used my "Recycled Aluminum Flowers" and an old worn-out wreath and put it all together to create a super cute and original wreath for under $5.00!

Here is the tutorial for the Recycled Aluminum Flowers:

Pin It

You will need:

flowers

wreath

burlap ribbon

scissors

stapler

wooden plaque

black and aqua acrylic paint

paint brush

high temp hot glue gun and glue sticks

chalk

I started with the wreath, burlap ribbon, scissors, and stapler.

I wrapped the burlap around the wreath once and stapled it.

Then I wrapped the burlap ribbon all the way around the wreath.  When I got all the way around, I stapled the ribbon onto itself in the back so it would stay securely.

I wanted to add a little chalkboard to my wreath so I could write different messages like "Welcome," "Happy Easter," or when I host a wedding shower for a friend of mine I will write a message for the guests.  I got this plain wooden plaque from Michaels...

And used acrylic paint to paint the center black with an aqua frame around it.

Then I was ready to start gluing everything to my wreath!

I started with the chalkboard and flowers, then added the leaves.

I think it looks great on my front door!
