I am so over the rainy, dreary days of winter. I have the gray blahs. I need color! I need sunshine! I need spring! I created this Hello Sunshine Spring Wreath to usher in spring. Hopefully, Mother Nature takes a cue and follows suit! It’s the perfect door decoration to greet guests this spring and summer!
I found these cedar shims at Home Depot. Then I grabbed a wooden circle and yellow paint from Wal-mart. The paint is actually three different colors of yellow – Pale Daffodil, Sunny Day, and Yellow Flame. I mean how perfect is that?!
I cut 15 shims with my miter saw. They measure 15 inches each, so I cut them at the 8 inch mark.
I painted the wooden circle and shims in the different shades of yellow. (For those interested in those details, I used Sunny Day for the circle, Yellow Flame for the shorter sun rays, and Pale Daffodil for the longer sun rays.)
Once everything dried, I began gluing the sun rays to the wooden circle.
Allow the wood glue to set for about an hour. Once that had cured, I added the longer rays and glued them in place. (See the Ruler wreath post for more specifics.)
My favorite part of this wreath is the cute hello banner! I painted the little wooden squares aqua and then cut out the letters on my Cricut using this font.
You all know I love my wreaths. In fact, they are like my children. I have a hard time choosing a favorite. Each time I create a new one, it takes over the #1 spot in my heart. That’s how I feel about my Hello Sunshine Spring Wreath! I just LOVE it! It’s so bright and cheery! This wreath can stay up all spring and summer long!
If you’re looking for more fun spring wreaths, I’ve got them!
