Pottery Barn-inspired Spring Butterfly Wreath!!

Have I ever introduced you about my little sister Ashley?
She is beautiful. She’s an amazing mom. She is a great business woman. And she is so creative.

So when she asked me for a good idea for a Spring Wreath the other day, I showed her a picture that has been pinned on my Craft Room wall for about 6 months:
Pottery Barn —
inspiration wreath
And she made an even better version for her front door! Check it out. What a cute wreath for Spring!!

PB-Inspired Butterfly Wreath

Here are the supplies she used:

Here’s what Ashley says:
  • I had 2 kinds of moss. Spongy moss and large sheets of moss. Both were preserved but real.
  • I took a grapevine wreath form and started hot gluing the sheets of moss onto the wreath, wrapping each piece around to the back. It took probably 10-12 sheet pieces to cover the wreath.
  • I then took the spongy moss and glued that in the gaps and crevices to give the wreath depth and dimension.
  • I found white butterflies in the floral section of Michaels. They were attached to 12 inch long wire. I thread the wire through the moss and into the back of the grapevine wreath, wrapping the ends around a piece of the grapevine to secure. I left 2 inches of wire between the butterflies and the wreath so they could hover above and create depth.
  • Finally, I attached a large piece of satin ribbon at the top and put it on my door. Voila!
  • The project took a total of 20 minutes and was super simple!
{You can also find these wreath forms at the Dollar Store.}

  3. Coming over from I'm Lovin" It at Tidy Mom. I love butterflies and that wreath is so cute, I just may have to make one myself. We get too much wind to put one outside, but it would sure look great over my fireplace mantle. Love your blog name by the way.

  4. What a cute wreath. And, your sister-OMG you are both so beautiful and creative and I just can't stand it. How amazing must your family get togethers be?!

    Oh I love this! Very pretty and simple!

  6. Michelle says:

    This is adorable! I love butterflies! Maybe this will make me give the whole moss thing a second shot, my first project with it FAILED but I bet mixing the two kinds is key!

  7. Beverly @ FlamingoToes.com says:

  8. Your sister is beautiful. Her boutique looks amazing. I love the wreath.

    I think that is one of the prettiest wreaths I have ever seen. Ashley's version is so much nicer than the inspiration wreath. My sister lives in the bay area, I am going to pass on the information about the boutique. Have a great weekend, gotta get myself some preserved moss!

    I think I like your sisters version better than the Pottery Barn one. Very cute! You both are so creative!

  12. Kadbury says:

    So creative! That looks great on the front door. I would make one to put up, but some little birdies moved into my current front door decor and laid five eggs : )So it stays put until the babies hatch and move out!
