DIY snowdrop wreath


Dear readers, 
I have the feeling that spring is coming soon! The days are getting longer, birds are singing in my garden and tiny green shoots are popping out of the ground. I love to visit garden centres at this time of the year as the first delivery of forced spring bulbs has just arrived. It is the time when grey winter days are finally brightened up by some colour again. At the garden centres I discovered flowers such as snowdrops, winter irises, cyclamen, hyacinths, daffodils and tulips. And not to forget primroses. These I like in particular as their lovely fragrance feels the air of the garden centres and instantly reminds me of spring. Of course, I can´t leave the garden centres without taking some of these lovely spring flowers with me. Last week I bought some snowdrops with the intention of using them for a small DIY project. Some time ago I saw a picture of a heart-shaped wreath with a snowdrop  plant imbedded in it on a blog or in garden magazine (I can't remember anymore). As it looked so lovely I tried to do a similar wreath myself. After collecting some branches from trees and moss I started my small project and I think it turned out quite nice and most importantly the wreath gives me some feeling of spring. 
Have a lovely weekend!
Best wishes,
Lisa

  1. These are so sweet. I love them. I couldn't find any little Snowdrops in pots around here yet. I wish I could I would be inspired to make one of these.

    P.s. I bought the Sissinghurst book. I am enjoying it. I can see how you liked it. I wish I could go there.

  2. That is an interesting DIY project. Maybe I can do something similar with the snowdrops in my garden. Thinking...... your brick wall is a fantastic back drop. Groetjes Hetty
