Welcome Spring! - Sassy Sanctuary

Hello everyone!  Krystal from Sassy Sanctuary here today and its my turn to welcome in Spring!  I too am itching for some consistent Spring weather.  We've actually have had quite the mixed basket of weather here in Utah this last month.  One day it'll snow, the next will bring sunshine, the next day pouring rain, and then back to the sunshine.  But those nice days mixed in are so much fun and such a tease!

When I think of Spring the first thing that comes to mind is tulips and daffodils.  Those first bulb flowers that pop up are how I know its finally arrived! So I set off to create my own little Spring flower garden.

I just LOVE how it turned out and think it just screams Spring!  I'm itching to go through my house this next week and replace all the winter decor for Spring, and I know this little bundle will be so cute on my mantle display.

It was a pretty easy and fun project too.

This one started out with a vision in my head and a sketch. 

Once I had the basic pattern made out of paper, I transferred the pattern to wood and cut out the flowers.  The large flowers are 1/2" wood and the leaf, tulip petals, and daffodil center are 1/4" wood.  The block and dowels I picked up at Micheal's.

Once you have all your pieces you just paint, paper, and assemble.  Everything is just put together with hot glue.

Here are some close-ups of the different pieces.

 I couldn't decide which paper to use on the tulip so ended up using both!  I love the mix of pattern!

And the Daffodil is probably my favorite.  It's just so happy!

And to really seal in the theme, I embellished the block with the words "welcome spring,"  a little bakers twine, and some moss on top.

So there you have it!  I'm ready to welcome in Spring!

Come back tomorrow to see what Melinda has in store for Spring this year!  And if you missed it be sure to go back and see Wendy and the Crafty Sisters made for Spring.  Serious cuteness!!!

Thanks for reading!
