I started by taking the holiday berry stems I had from my Christmas wreath...
And employed my trusty DIY crafts best friend: Mr. White Spraypaint
Then the berries looked like this:
Then I waited for the spraypaint to dry.
While I waited, I mixed my paint palette. These are the colors I planned to paint the berries:
My spring-inspired palette: heather grey, lemon yellow, pale blue and mint green
Also while I waited, I decided it was Wine O'clock...
Then I began painting the berries, one color at a time, until every berry was painted.
I couldn't lay the stem down on anything to dry, so I used a skinny vase:
Once the berries were dry, I worked the stems into my twig wreath.
This is the base I use for all my wreaths - just $7 from Michaels.
TA-DA! Finished product: a bright and inviting spring wreath that didn't cost anything extra.
I simply used paint and products I already had in my house.
I know what you're thinking now: Lizz, that wine looked muy delicioso. What do you drink?
