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.


I hope you have been inspired to create your own Printemps Couronne de Provence. I love mine!
