A Colorful Spring

It has been so incredibly beautiful here in Las Vegas the last few weeks. I'm loving our March springtime.  I also started decorating for spring inside.  Do you want to see?

I figured that when someone walks in my home, I want them to feel happy! Nothing makes me happier than color and handmade, so that is exactly what I did.

The three projects I have going on here are the wreath, the pinwheels and the quick piece of art.

The pinwheels came together fast thanks to this download from Christmas..who would have thought?!  I ended up gluing the pinwheels onto metal floral wire.

Don't all those colors make you smile?! (They make my day everytime I see them.)

You may remember THIS wreath from last year. It found it's new home welcoming the visitors this year.  You can see how to make the rosettes HERE.

And lastly, I made this quick little piece of art up with a canvas, some scrapbook paper and some wood grained contact paper.  Simply cut the paper the size of the canvas..spray adhesive it on. Draw your letters how you want them on the contact paper and cut out and place on the paper.  You are done!  So fast and simple.:)

And that's a wrap for today. Hope your weekend goes well. Have you started decorating for spring yet?

This is SO pretty! Can't decide which I like more... the pinwheels or the wreath. Both are so bright, cheery, and fun!
