Fern Wreath

Now, that spring is well underway and we feel like we are into summer I made some changes on the front door.  I changed the nest wreath to a fern wreath.

I first took a 6 ft. artificial fern garland I purchased at a craft store and a 12-inch grapevine wreath.   
 
I clipped the garland to fit the wreath with my tin snips.

I used a burlap ribbon left over from Christmas decorations and fashioned a bow.
I used a pipe cleaner and created a hanger.

Here is the finished wreath.  You can shape the ferns as desired.  The wreath looks really nice on the front door because the front walk is lined with ferns this time of year.

I really like this -- it's so clean and crisp looking and great because you can leave it up all summer as is or add to it -- love the burlap too.

That is so simply pretty! We have so many ferns growing in our backyard and I am always on the lookout for how to utilize them. Even though yours isn't real, it looks real enough for me to gain a visual of how it would look if I used live ones:)

Hope you have a blessed week!
