A Wreath Make-Over

This is a picture of my "spring wreath" not very pretty, right!!! So I decided to give it a make-over.

Lucky for me the sun took a toll on the glue too because the sprigs came right out!

I re-painted the sprigs and added some stickles for bling!

And I made a bunch of handmade flowers then hot glued it all together.

Taaaa Daaaa!!! Here's my new spring wreath!!

What do you think???
I also entered it into a couple of challenges...
Crafty Creations.....Make your own flowers
Pile it On.......Pastel Colors
By the Cute and Girly.....Spring is in the air
Thanks for stopping by!!
