In case you missed it, I recently made a daffodil wreath.
And I hated it.
It wasn't necessarily a bad wreath, it just really didn't jive with my bright red front door. Some of you gave me suggestions to improve it, but in the end I just had to think about a little color theory. I was putting two saturated primary colors right next to each other. What my wreath needed was some neutrals to temper those bright hues. This is what I came up with...
Ta-da! Much better, right?!
Less "Dr. Seuss" and more "Bright and Springy", which is what I was going for.
It doesn't require much explanation if you are interested in making one of your own. First, I ripped all those daffodils off of my wreath form, but you are welcome to skip that step. Haha. Then I wrapped it in hemp cording, tacking it down with hot glue on the back every now and then (which added great texture as well as a neutral foundation). I glued on a small grouping of daffodils and some aqua ribbon for a pop of color. And there's a little pearly goodness on there, too...the pearls were on my craft table and the glue gun was hot. What's a girl to do? :)
Anyway...now I LOVE it! Isn't it great when a second try yields better results that you imagined in the first place? Lesson learned...
