Woodland Spring Wreath

Last week I saw these itty bitty mushrooms for sale over at Shop Sweet Lulu and fell in love. They come in two different sizes. I seriously wanted to order some in every color, but I just chose four colors. Last year I did a bird nest and rosette wreath for spring, so I just pulled those pieces off and got to work!
I started by tearing off a few pieces of moss that I bought at Hobby Lobby, and hot gluing them on.

 After that, all I had to do was arrange some super cute mushrooms on the moss! They come with little "stem" pieces that you can easily stick right into the wreath.

 I had a moss covered "B" somewhere else in my house, so I used that and added a few mushrooms peeking out.

Hang it up with some cute chevron jute ribbon (from Hobby Lobby) and you're ready for a woodland-inspired spring!

Reclaimed Wood Arrow Monogram

Today I finished a project that had taken over my mind and I HAD to get done! I wanted to make a arrow shaped reclaimed wood project. I am now itching to make more for my Etsy shop, and I have a few ideas to modify them to make them specifically for wedding decor. (think
i do" in lowercase letters) I want to perfect it first though. This one isn't perfect, but rustic isn't supposed to be perfect. 

 I started out just cutting some old wood and quickly decided I wanted some mint pieces mixed in with the old grey-ish wood.
