What do you have on your front door?

It is still spring isn't it? Well, maybe not because memorial day is kind of the official day of kicking off the summer season.  I enjoy spring so much but it seems it doesn't last very long.  I have had this wreath up since March and I still have it on my front door so I thought I would share how I made it.

I started with a grapevine wreath and added some greenery that I had stashed away.  I think both of the greens that I used were actually garlands, and I just cut them apart and attached to the grapevine wreath with hot glue. I then had some hops flowers that I added. (those are the white ones you see.)

I then had some eggs that I had spray painted a cream color and then speckled them with a dark brown, ( I use a paint brush with brown paint on it and then flick the brush through my fingers, it is kind of messy but I like the end results.)

I like the bright greens because it really makes the whole thing pop!

It is probably time to start on something for summer but I thought I better share before I take it down.
Now on to SUMMER!

Spring is my favorite time to decorate our door and I am always a bit sad to take our umbrella door candy down. Yours is so delightful too. That limey yellow green is one of my heart throb colors. Thanks for sharing on BeColorful this week.

Such a pretty wreath! I love all the shades of green you've used. On my door I repurposed a wreath for the 4th time and I think I like this version the best. I posted about it here...http://makethebestofthings.blogspot.com/2012/03/spring-wreath-redothe-4th-look-from.html
