Bonjour! A simply elegant spring project

Welcome to my blog Belle Maison Et Moi!  I'm excited to chronicle the things I find beautiful, tasty, fun, fashionable, and inspiring.

While spring cleaning, I stumbled upon a mixture of leftover fabrics from other projects that needed to be used up.  When I finally decided our Christmas wreaths needed to come down in April (they were too pretty to tuck away!), we were in need of a spring wreath.  So I dusted off an old, bland, grapevine wreath and revamped it into an ethereal white gem that makes me smile everytime I pass through our front door.

Forgive me, I forgot to photograph the wreath before I spray painted it white, but trust me, this is much prettier!

A few supplies:
pink and peach tulle, a faux white feather, ribbon

Ta da!  C'est magnifique!

Here are some close ups:

yes, I changed the ribbon to silver satin

pink and peach tulle flowers with vintage yellow faceted bead centers
Tomorrow, I will be posting some fancy fabric gift wrap as part II of elegant spring projects.  Excited to share!  But I'm wondering, what spring projects are you working on?  I'd love to hear and see some pics too!
