spring-almost-summer wreath

A few weeks ago, I put together a new spring-almost-summer wreath
[it's still pretty spring-like with all the rain we're getting in New England].

Here's what you'll need to make a similar one:
grapevine wreath
yarn
felt
hot glue gun
fabric markers
baker's twine or string



I re-used a grapevine wreath I had decorated for fall.
I just love how versatile they are.
I started, but wrapping a section of the wreath with yard.
Next, I cut out felt triangles to form a bunting banner.
I just used two colors to keep it simple.
Since the wreath is going on the front door, I chose to write
 'welcome' on the bunting, stringing it together with baker's twine.
I thought it needed a little more, so I also made a flower
out of the felt in a contrasting color.
To learn more about making such a flower, check out this tutorial.
Lastly, I used hot glue (in small amounts) to put the wreath together.
