I know. We’re still in the middle of winter, but I’m dreaming of warmth, sunshine, and flowers. I’ve been on the hunt for a good Mickey wreath for a while now, and either found that they were too expensive or not exactly what I was looking for. One day while I was shopping in Michael’s, I noticed they had some plain wreaths for spring on sale for 60% off. With that a plan was born to make my own wreath! I picked up 3 wreaths; one for the head, and the other two for the ears, some fake flowers, and I was off!
- One medium wreath
- Two small wreaths
- Fake flowers
- Hot glue gun
My vision was pretty simple. A subtle pink arrangement that would work for now with my Valentine’s Day decor and transition into spring.
I started off by cutting the fake flowers off at the stem, sticking one end into the wreath, and then wrapping it around, sealing that end with hot glue. I repeated this until I was satisfied with the look.
I repeated those steps on the other wreaths, and voila! My very own Mickey wreath! I debated adding a bow to make it a Minnie wreath, but I really love the simplicity of this for the Spring. I plan on making a much more vibrant version in the summer with bigger flowers and perhaps I’ll do my Minnie then!
Here it is in all of its glory right from my living room (with Audrey photobombing).
I hope this gets you through the dark days of winter!
Bye for now!
