Claypot Spring Wreath

Wednesday, March 09, 2011
I saw the adorable idea for this wreath here, she sited where she got this idea, etc etc, and the internet lived happily ever after. I'm slowly making/collecting a series of wreaths for each season, and despite the fact that there are several more holidays to come, it just seemed like a good time to post a spring wreaths in honor of the season of growth.  The empty pots pretty much represent my gardening skills.  I can buy cute pots like you wouldn't believe, it's everything after I don't do well/don't follow through with/don't want to discuss any further.  As for the process.  I grabbed a grapevine wreath at the Goodwill Store for 99 cents that was a medium size (I didn't want one too large or the pots might just get ridiculously heavy).  I also found a stack of 6 pots on sale at Hobby Lobby for half off (they do this quite frequently, so it ended up only costing a little over a dollar each set of six pots. 
I bought every mini pot they had in the store, and it ended up being the perfect number.  I could have added 12 more, but I think it turned out fine.  I looped a wire through each pot, and tied it to the wreath. 
It's pretty heavy, and I may add a raffia bow...or I might leave it as is, but I hope Spring notices and decides to stick around!

I've made wreaths with clay pots, but with other decorations on them. However, your wreath is so cute with just the pots. I could see it for spring or summer. It would look stunnin near a garden bench or potting bench if you have one.

I'm Tonia Anderson by name, I am from the States, Suffolk county to be precise. I am here today to testify of the good works LORD ZAKUZA has done in my life, I never knew great men still exist until I found him. I have been suffering from heart break for the past 3 years, my partner who I invested on cheated on me with my best friend on my matrimonial bed, I was yet to recover from this terrible shock until I meant LORD ZAKUZA, a friend of mine directed me to him , I doubted him at first but as things went further, I had to give him my trust and did exactly as he told me to do. Ever since then, I have been happy all my life and my love life with my partner has been so wonderful. You can also need his help and here's his contact information.

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com website: Https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
