Patriotic Vintage Doily Wreath

wreath1

Happy Tuesday!

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…

Warm regards,
Melody

A New Crocheted Wreath Variation: Spring!

I’m continuing to modify the crocheted wreath I created back in December – it’s so easy to do since the doilies are just pinned on!  Thus far I’ve shared two versions: Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  Today I’m showing my newest version: Spring!

I used crocheted doilies and floral pot holders in purples and yellows, and love how the wreath turned out. Two of my favorite flowers are irises and daffodils, and the color scheme of this wreath reminds me of those two flowers.

I didn’t make this a “strictly Easter” wreath since this version is likely to hang until June, when I’ll work on creating a 4th of July-themed wreath. So this wreath uses spring colors, but doesn’t include bunnies, chicks, or eggs – though I was tempted because I love all three of those things!

Spring begins tomorrow, so I’d like to wish you a Happy Spring a bit early.  If you live in a cold climate, I hope you enjoy nicer weather.  :]
