Jazzing up your front entry for Spring..It's almost here!

Spring has arrived..on my calendar at least. I've been dying to fix up my front porch and with the weather being so nice, I finally put my mind to it, and got it done.

I was inspired last week when I saw this wreath on Pinterest. I love this natural look. It can go all summer long and you don't have to worry about changing it out, which I love.

I stopped into Hobby Lobby on Saturday and picked up some floral, green moss, spray adhesive, monogram letter, and green tulle. I had the grapevine wreath and fern already. Total cost @ Hobby Lobby.. $30.00. Not bad.

I spent about 45 minutes putting it together. I think the spray adhesive really helped out on time. I didn't have to mess with a glue gun, which saved a lot of mess and burnt fingers:)

I'm pretty excited how it turned out. Makes such a big difference to the front door and really personalizes it with the monogram letter. Very cozy:) Thanks Lindsay for the idea!!

With the wreath done, I drove on over to Calloway's and picked up this real pretty pot, cypress, and a couple flowers. Will be nice for this summer. I typically do containers of flowers, but to keep maintenance low, this one will be all I need. I can just change out flowers in the front when the time comes and keep the spruce trimmed. The green pot really brightens things up. Between the wreath and the container, I spent under $100.00. What a deal!!

It's really a shame that we drive up to our house through the alley and miss out on walking up through our front door. It's not everywhere in Dallas, but many homes you drive through the back and into your garage to get in. Miss that about Jersey. Miss having a driveway. Weekly, I'll do a drive-by to take a look at the front of our home and make sure it's still standing:)

Thanks for stopping by!! Hopefully your able to decorate your front entry soon for Spring.
 I'd love to hear about it.
