The weather is starting to feel like spring time here in Charleston. Our temperatures have been climbing into the 80s. It’s time to put away all of the wintry decor and bold colors and bring out the pastels and pretty pops of cheerful spring time colors. This Spring Blooms Wall Art is a great way to welcome in the new season.
I found this Art Minds bead board plaque at my local Goodwill. I’m not sure what the price of this would be at a craft store, but I got it for $2.99. It was in great condition and didn’t need to be repainted. That’s always a plus!
I have a supply of wood letter that I like to use for various projects. I pulled out the letter for Spring and gave them a couple of coats of Ballet Slipper Waverly Acrylic Paint.
Making felt flowers is a go to craft for easy embellishments for me. I made an assortment of them in various colors and sizes. I purchased the package of pink roses to use for Valentine’s Day, but I didn’t need them. They worked nicely for this project.

There are a few different ways to make felt flowers. I use a roll method.
For some of the flowers, I didn’t use the spiral strip. I used a straight strip of felt. When rolling those, you will need to twist the felt back and forth as you roll it into a flower shape.
You know how as crafters we save almost everything? When I cut the top from the leprechaun hat centerpiece that I made for St. Patrick’s Day, I was left with a round piece of sturdy felt. Of course I didn’t toss it! I found a use for it sooner than I thought I would. I cut it into strips and used it for the flower stems.
Using hot glue, I added the paper rope to the bottom of the board. It’s wrapped around the sides and a dot of glue is added to the back of the board.
I find so many uses for laminated burlap sheets. I love that they don’t ravel when cut. I cut small piece in the shape of a pot.
More of the paper rope is added around the rim of the pot. I glued the bead garland on top of the paper rope to add more dimension to the bottom.
The stems are hot glued onto the board and then the flower pot is glued in place.
I love how delicate these paper roses are, but I didn’t love the wood colored picks. To have them blend in better, I used a green marker to color the picks.
The roses are tucked between the flower stems with a tiny dot of hot glue to keep them in place.
The felt flowers are each hot glued to the board, matching up with a stem.
The finishing touch was to add a bow tied from the paper rope to the corner of the flower pot. It’s glued in place.
I love how cheerful this turned out to be! It adds a touch of spring to my sun room.
The only time consuming part of putting this together was making the flowers, but once you have the hang of it, it doesn’t take long to make a lot of them.
Are you breaking out your spring decor yet? I might be rushing it just a bit since it’s only the start of March, but it’s a welcomed change.
