Yes, I know that they are pretty…very pretty and indeed I had second thoughts about repurposing them. But if you know me, bright color isn’t really my thing and I tend to be a soft hearted romantic in all ways:-)
I am not above buying on clearance, especially at Target where I head for the dollar bins first. For the price I felt that it would do no harm in cutting them up and taking out the loud silk magenta daisies. And the yellow….whatchamacallits! I do use silk flowers, but not poor quality ones. It makes a difference my friends.
I love the way that this softly muted wreath looks and it’s just perfect for spring. So much better than that overly bright and plastic looking thrifty wreath 😉
