welcome to Ohh My Gracious

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

Spring Wreath DIY

My bedroom door was looking a little plain, so after a little boredom last night, I decided to do a little arts and crafts project. I plan on making a few others for the different seasons, but for now I'll start with Spring.

I used a straw wreath for this, but any kind would be fine. I wanted mine to be messy and not totally covered.

The doilie gives the wreath a little bit of a vintage feel and texture that I love. You can find them in any linen store like Bed Bath and Beyond, or if you're like me, have millions of them in your Italian grandmothers house. So just take a few, she'll never notice.

Blue and white paper flowers 99¢ at Michaels Crafts. Pick up as many different colors that you can. You never know when you can use them.

Always look in the $1 finds section in Michaels Crafts. The birdhouse along with other great things just a buck.

Also added a little bit of hemp cord around random spots.

Finish it off with a ribbon to hang it and you're good to go.

Thanks again Ashley!
