Romantic Pink Spring Renewal

I had this grapevine wreath with a few of the flowers on it for quite awhile.  I had found it at the Goodwill for about $2.00.  Wanting a new look for the window, I started looking around my home to see what I had in my hand that I could re-purpose. 

The hydrangeas  and some of the fill flowers were already on the wreath, as well as the pretty pink ribbon.  I then started to tuck smaller flowers around the hydrangeas.  The first hydrangea was placed at the 3:00 position. 
Next the ivy was placed at the 12:00 position.  I let the Ivy cascade down over the wreath.  Tucking tulips at various positions (2:00, 7:00, and 8:00) around the wreath was next on the agenda.

Wire your little bunny, or whatever you might choose, so that she is sitting on top of the lower bed of flowers.  Encircle your wreath with pretty lights.  It is now ready to display where ever you would choose.  I like to have a focal point in my dining area and have chosen an old wash tub with lids as the backdrop to create vignettes.  I am starting to think spring, so have added a few of my treasures to the grouping. 

1. grapevine wreath
2. Cascade of silk green IVY
3. Bunch of Silk tulips
4. Hydrangea flowers
5. Other fill in flowers of your choice to match your project
6. Silk ribbon-pink of course
7. Florist wire
8. Pretty little white lights, or the new silicone covered lights (That is what is pictured here.)
It is so much fun to re-purpose what you already have in your hand!  Happy creating....
