{Make it Monday} DIY Spring Wreaths

The warm, sunny weather this weekend got me in the mood for a little Spring Cleaning and I finally had the chance to put away all of my winter decor. Well, out with the old and in with the new, I'm now in the process of updating for Easter & Spring. As you may know, I have a little wreath obsession, and as soon as I have some free time I plan on making a pretty Spring wreath to welcome the Easter Bunny! Here are some pretties from around the web that caught my attention, best of all, they all come with tutorials from the talented ladies who created them. Just click on the links to get the scoop on how to make your own Spring Wreath!

Spring/Easter time is generally the only time of year that I find myself drawn to pastels. The rest of the year, I'm a bright and bold color kind of girl. This wreath from The 36th Avenue caught my attention because of its soft, light colors and feminine feel.

If bold is more your thing, this green and orange toadstool wreath from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs is bright and has just the right touch of whimsey for Spring.

Ok, confession: I have a scarf that looks exactly like the green 'grass' used to make this wreath. I have to say, it looks better on a wreath than it does around my neck! Check out the tutorial for this sweet Spring wreath with daises on The Creative Place.

Lovely! That's what I would say to describe this soft & light wreath from Ashley Ann Photography. View the full tutorial and beautiful photos on her blog.

Last but not least, it's time to think outside the 'box' of round wreaths and try something square. I love this wreath because it's perfect for Easter, but you can leave it up for Spring too! Get the how-to from The CSI Project. 

Check back next week to see what I come up with and if you've made your own Spring Wreath, we'd love if you'd share!
