Rose & Moss Wreath..

I have been wanting a new wreath,
for the side of the front porch,
it's kind of empty over there..

(click photos to enlarge)

I had been wanting something mossy,
and then I found these sweet little roses..
and the plan was born.

Everything came from Joann's Fabrics..
the florals were 1/2 price,
right after Easter.

Everything is done with my crusty hot glue gun...
you don't want to see that :-)

I glued the moss on loosely..
so it had lots of fluff to it..
I wanted it to have a soft airy look
and... so I could tuck the flowers into it,
and hide the stems.

Here is the finished  rose and moss wreath...

and... here we are on the side of the porch,
I leaned the wreath on the sill of this old window.
The glass in the window was replaced with mirrors..
I had a large empty wall on this side of the front porch..
and found this mirror/window at a garage sale last fall.
 I really enjoy the way the window filled the space.

Here is a photo of the side of the porch in February,
if you would like to see a broader photo.

Today I am joining Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage

Thanks for stopping by,

Love that wreath and especially like the way you leaned it there instead of the usual hanging on the door.

Hi Bella
That is a pretty wreath you made.
I'm glad I'm not the only one with an old crusty glue gun - mine is metal and heavy but still works well.

Pinkie said...

That really is beautiful. I still have my Easter wreath up. LOL

Carolyn said...

Great job! It looks lovely leaning against the old mirror.I have a similar one that I hang out on the veranda as well.
