Printemps Couronne de Provence – Spring Wreath from Provence

I love the delicate and graceful flowers of Provence, France in springtime.

The soft lavenders and whites exude the beauty of spring in such a subtle way (from France Romantique below) .

J’adore this delicate and elegant wreath below from C…comme Coeur mes coups de coeur.

It inspired me to create my own Printemps Couronne de Provence.

I bought three artificial spring flower bunches ($3.99 each), a grapevine base ($4.99) and jute ribbon ($3.99) above. I originally wanted to use actual dried lavender, however, it was $8.99 a bunch – a little too expensive. I was also nervous that the dried lavender would break up when handling it. The artificial flowers had a green wire stem that eliminated the use of additional wire. I carefully inserted the wire stems into the grapevine and if necessary, twisted them to secure them into place.

I love the carefree natural look of the small delicate flowers. I chose a simple jute ribbon that had a touch of white woven through it.

  1. Hi Maureen – I llike your artistic and practical flair as much as the way you inspire your younger son & family in your projects. I like the repurposed tin cans a lot and the palpable joy in your photo-taking. Thanks ~ Lai-King
