Spring Wreath

Now I know its almost Summer now, but I did this project about a month ago so it was more appropriate at the time. And it still looks cute for summer :)

 I'm sure there are tons of tutorials on these flowers but I posted how I did mine for this one. This is the first time I've done this sort of flower. I really like how they turned out.

Read more to see how I made the flowers and attached it all....

First cut a circle out. The bigger the circle, the bigger the flower.. obviously.

 Then, cut it into a spiral.
Now with your hot glue, dab a little glue, then roll it up. I suggest doing a practice roll before the gluing if this is your first time. 
 Once you have a few different sizes that you like, you can start laying them out how you like.
Last, I added little stones as a center for the flowers.

I always wrap my wreath in yarn or ribbon so that I can keep reusing the wreath each month. (I don't have room to store 12 wreaths)

Then I hot glued the flowers to the ribbon and I'm all set.

I really like the color combination. I'm not sure I like the ribbon. Maybe its too shiny. But apparently I like it enough to leave it up for the last month :)
