I recently changed up my wreath – you know, the one I’ve decorated for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Spring thus far. (Well, I also did a St. Patrick’s Day version, but guess who forgot to take a photo before switching to spring? Ack!) This incarnation features red, white and blue. The wreath was switched up in time for Memorial Day, and will stay this way until after the 4th of July.
To create this look I pulled some blue doilies from my stash, as well as some red and white “bullseye” doilies. I decided to add some simple foil stars and a bit of white ribbon to finish it off, and love the look. Because I pin the doilies on each time with T-pins it’s easy to take off the old doilies and add the new ones.
What do you think? I hope you like it. Please let me know if you’ve been inspired to create a doily wreath of your own…
Remember when I shared that Vintage Crocheted Wreath back in December? The one I hung for Christmas? Well, in that post I mentioned that it would be easy for me to modify the wreath for different holidays or themes throughout the year. By pinning my doilies and potholders on instead of gluing, it was super easy to take some of the pieces off and add new pieces to create a Valentine’s Day wreath. This version is all red, white, and cream, and I think it’s darling.
I’ll likely make a new version of the wreath for the spring, and will share that new wreath with you in a month or two. In the meantime, do you have questions, comments, feedback? I’d love to hear from you…
