Painting the wall behind our open shelving with Simply White paint

My kitchen has been through many colors. For years I’ve had a dark tannish-greige on the interior wall, opposite of the kitchen window. Since our house has an East-west exposure, I decided it was time to paint a brighter color behind our open shelving with simply white paint to open up the room a little [...]

EASY, inexpensive and beautiful DIY spring wreath!

Comments are off for this post.
These are my favorite kinds of projects/posts my friends! Quick DIYs that are easy to replicate and aren't going to break the bank. This one is especially easy! 

I found this tulip wreath and fell. in. LOVE with it: 
Full white and yellow tulip wreath

But the price? Seventy dollars?? 😳 It's gorgeous but I knew I could make my own. 

I gathered my supplies -- this grapevine wreath I had already. I recommend grabbing one when they're on sale (I believe this one was $5 after half off). I love these because they're SO easy to stuff with seasonal items:

Then I went to Hobby Lobby because their fake flowers were half off. I grabbed way more than I needed just in case (they're usually half off every other week so I wanted to make sure I had enough): 
Affordable fake tulips

So pretty! 

I used my wire cutting pliers and started cutting the stems off the bunches:

Then you just stuff them in! It really is so easy. Just place them where you want. 

I thought it looked pretty with just a couple bunches on there:

But I wanted a fuller look so I went with six bunches total: 
DIY large tulip wreath for a fraction of the cost

LOVE it! Mine was $24 and is even bigger than the one online. Score! 

I used six bunches at $4 each. I had the wreath, but as I mentioned, you would easily come in under $30 for a very full and large wreath. If you go with a slightly smaller grapevine wreath you'd be able to make due with fewer flowers too. 

I use a Command hook to hang my wreaths on the glass door. This is what I use and it's made for wet locations. We don't get any of the elements on the door, but I used it just in case. It's stayed up for years and held HEAVY wreaths:

It's hard to get a photo of the glass door without me in it. ;) You don't want to see me in my comfy pants so here you go: 
DIY white and yellow tulip wreath

SO pretty! I just love it! Mine measures about 24 inches across, bigger in some spots. You can make it bigger or smaller with your placement of the tulips. 

Of course you can use any fake flower or greenery for a wreath like this! I love that I can take them out, keep them for next spring and reuse the wreath for summer. It takes maybe ten minutes to add the flowers in once you've got them cut. 

If you don't want to DIY this wreath these are some BEAUTIFUL options. I'm so ready for spring!:
