An unconventional spring wreath

 Most times the projects I like the best are those done with stuff I already have that is just laying around. A project that requires no money spent, and no running to the store for that one thing you don't have is a perfect project in my book!

     I'm in the midst of changing up my decor to look a bit more spring like, and wanted something to hang on my antique window.  I had a pack of these decorative balls to play with.

     I wired them together to form a circle.

     A generous dose of white spray paint and a few bits of ribbon later I have my wreath.

     The green ribbon doesn't show up well against the green wall, but that window is getting turned into a mirror shortly so that will fix it nicely. The shadows due to the massive amount of windows in our living room aren't helping either. My springifying is coming together rather nicely. Yes, springify is a word... you just think it's not a word! What does spell check know anyway!
