spring wreaths

I think this paper roses wreath by Stephanie Lynn at Under the table dreaming is really to-die-for. I have been keeping my eye out for a pretty wreath idea to make my doors a bit more welcoming, and this was the first that really caught my attention. I have double doors, so making a wreath, means making two:). Here is the line up of the favorites I found. I am enlisting your help in choosing which one to try to make.

In the etsy store Itzfitz there are some really pretty wreaths like this one,

and this one,

aren't they just so pretty?

I also found this nice image online, but the etsy seller no longer exists, and doesn't have a blog anymore, so I can't give credit where credit is due, but I did want to share, it is so very feminine. I am not certain that I could recreate it, but I could try. I would change the sign to perhaps He is risen, or Happy Spring, or He's alive, or maybe leave it off so It can stay on my door longer.

and, this from Home Confetti
don't you just LOVE that little sign stuck on top??

Or, click this to see some goodness from under the sycamore!

And, at the spotted sparrow look at this, so simple, but the vintage feel really appeals to me. I'm not sure how I would hang it, perhaps by a ribbon attached to the back. My doors are also glass, so the back has to be at the least tidy, and at best pretty.

Here's one from etsy seller DanaAndCarol,
 it really screams spring doesn't it? 

The always beautiful and fresh Layla shares a how-to for an equally fresh and beautiful wreath HERE, at the lettered cottage. If you haven't found her decorating blog, you must stop by for a visit. 

What about this braided wreath from Carolyn, she also shares the how to for this one, on her blog Homework, with a robins nest complete with tiny blue eggs that I adore! 

So, there you have it,
 anyone with spring fever out there? 
Which wreath do you like best from those I've chosen?

As always, you have delicious taste! I love all of the first four! But, the fourth one with all the little cones of pretty papers might be my fave - and it looks like it would be the most doable to make in a pair? Love, love, love.

Have a great day, Amy!

Love all of the wreaths...but I think my faves are 2nd, 3rd & 4th one's...they also look like they'd be the easiest to make...I especially love the felt flowers...Thanks so much for your comment on my latest loving hearing all about how you and Mike met....each Monday evening I eagerly get onto the computer to read the latest instalment!!! Keep em coming.

I love the first one, especially because you could leave it up all year! but its not super "springy" like the others...the 2nd one is probably my favorite. what if you added a few colored paper flowers somewhere in the 1st one?? just a thought.

also love the one with the "barefeet welcome" sign! what is that made out of??

can't wait to see what you make! :)

Hi! I think I'm doing this right...never commented on a blog before :)
The wreath of pages from an old book is my absolute favorite. I've never seen anything like that before. And I love those old pictures of children playing. But I think it would best show itself off inside the house. Otherwise, I love the wrapped striped fabric wreath with flowers ... because striped fabric is a favorite of mine
