We've been getting some pretty nice weather over the last week. It has really lifted my spirits and gotten me excited for spring. Here is a precious wreath to make to welcome spring into your home. Don't you love the little "Bare Feet Welcome" sign? Darling! Perfect for a garden party or Easter. You could even replace the daisies for little shamrocks and temporarily use it for St. Patrick's Day. Capture the Details gives the step by step for this easy wreath.

- Valentine themed scrapbook paper.
- Styrofoam disk, measures approximately 1 3/4" x 7 7/8" (didn't write down the exact measurement!)
- Two pink pipe cleaners
- Hole punch
- Regular tape
- Glue dots
- Pink copy paper
First, cut 3 strips from your chosen paper for the bottom of the cage. My strips measured 12” L x 2 5/8” H simply because I didn’t want to cut off the words. Then print out the words “You’ve Captured My Heart” on pink paper. My final trim size was 7 ¼” L x 1 ¼” H. I used glue dots to position the paper around the Styrofoam disk.

- Mod Podge (I used satin finish)
- Glue gun
- 12 x 12" mosaic floor tile (under $3)
- Magnets (purchased at Michael's with my 40% coupon)
- Started out with porcelain markers, but ended up using Sharpies (do not use washable or regular markers-you won't get solid color and it will smudge easily)
- Color printer
Set them all aside to dry. These are just a few of the ones we made. As you can see, we even used the small square tiles to create simple "I (heart) U" tiles.
