Simple Spring Wreath

Look what I made!
This simple spring wreath came together literally in minutes, using only the leftover crepe paper flowers I had on hand after the 'Belles and Beaus Ball' and a grapevine wreath I had dismantled after Thanksgiving last year.  We made these amazing blooms ourselves (how clever are we?) and you can read all about how to make them here too, but you could certainly do the same with store-bought silk flowers.  I think what really makes this wreath stand out is the use of a single color/flower on the entire wreath.  I have been looking for something to take me from Spring through the first part of summer and I thihk this is it!
Since these flowers were made on floral picks, I didn't even have to secure them with hot glue.  I simply stuck them into the grapevine wreath and hung it up outside.  Super cinchy as Sheep would say!
I have a new banner out flont on my tree and a planter box stake, both with a butterfly on them, so i am considering adding a single butterfly to the wreath just to tie it all together.
What do you think?
It's already the last week of school around here for us, so I'll be welcoming summer as well as my houseguests with this little number!
Well, Hello!
