Spring wreath and wildflowers

 As I was tidying up mums in the pots from the fall,  I thought  the dried cuttings could be used to make a spring wreath for my front door.  A silk flower ring was used to place the dried pieces and flowers, a bow to hang.    The first picture is of some wildflowers I picked while dead heading this afternoon,   they are as pretty as any other I believe.

anyway- back to the wreath
mums needed clipping

Yep I can use these clippings.

I pushed the clippings into the floral foam ring.  this view from backside.
I purchased white flowers pushed them into the foam on front and added a bow.

I think it looks like spring with the white flowers budding in the center
