Spring Floral Hoop Wreath

Hello everyone! 
Remember me? 

Hopefully the weather is spring like in your neck of the woods!
 It finally showed up for us here, yay, and I can't wait for more actually color to start popping up outside too!

I know I have been super quiet here, for a while now, but I finally have something to share with all of you! 

I love the hoop wreaths that have been floating around and wanted to make my own and I really love how it turned out.

 It is easy to create, like most wreaths, so you can easily complete it in a short time frame one afternoon.

Here's how you can create one for you door or even indoor decor.

-Hoop (I bought this MDF wood hoop at Michael's in the styrofoam section)
-Glue Gun
-Floral picks
-Succulent picks
-Ribbon optional
-Acrylic paint or spray paint 
-Wire cutters
-A piece of felt

Begin by painting your hoop. 
I just painted two coats of white acrylic paint on mine but you could also just use spray paint.

 As your paint is drying, trim all the heads of your blooms off the stems and cut apart any leaves or smaller floral picks to prepare them for use.

Cut felt and glue it to your hoop.
You will glue the floral blooms and leaves to the felt.

I like to dry fit my entire wreath together first to figure out exactly how I want it. Once I am happy I will start gluing each piece individually, overlapping them, and working my way around the wreath.

Start with larger blooms and leaves and continue filling in with smaller items as you go.

 Keep going until the full wreath is complete filling in where need be.

After all of the blooms and leaves are attached, if you will see any of the felt from the front, just flip it over and trim it down. 

And that's it!! 
Hang it and enjoy! 

I hope you guys like my new wreath and I sure hope that I will pop back on here more and more. Only time will tell. :)

 Until then, see you later!

MHCT&M: Colorful Dining Room Ideas

 Hello everyone and happy Friday! 
Spring has finally arrived, well officially at least whether the weather wants to act like it or not, and with that comes the arrival of all sorts of new colors starting to brighten up the world. Today, I am sharing some colorful dining room ideas with you to show you can brighten up your world too.

The farmhouse trend is still going strong and with that comes a lot of white and wood tones. Don't get me wrong, I love this trend too, I actually miss the white walls we painted in our old house, but sometimes you just need a little color in your life. 
Whether you like just a few accents of color or ALL. THE. COLOR., I am here to show you different ways you can inject color into your space. 
 I'll start with the most obvious way to add color to your room and that is on the walls.
Paint is the easiest way to quickly update your space and add color.
How about painting a solid color and then adding a contrasting color on top with a random or geometric pattern?! Great visual! 

(Curated Interior)
Wallpaper is another great way to add color and pattern into your space.
Pick a bold pattern but tone it down by placing it only on the top half of the walls and painting white under a chair rail. Throw in a rug with the same colors but in my more muted shades and the whole room comes together. I actually LOVE this room! 

(El Rincon Vintage de Karmela)
Hire a muralist to paint a scene onto one or more of your walls.
You can also buy wallpaper that creates a mural.

Did you find a bold wallpaper you love but don't want to commit to it in your entire space?!
Just place it on one wall as an accent and paint the rest of your room white. Tie in some matching cushions and bring in wood tones to keep the room grounded and you are set!

(Swoon Worthy)
Not ready for a lot of color but do want to incorporate some? 
Paint your walls a solid color and repeat that color in your rug then bring in brighter pops of color in the artwork and fabrics in the room.
Onto another flat surface that frequently gets ignored... the ceiling!
 Ceilings are another great way to add color but they don't have to be too crazy.
Just paint it a solid color, whether neutral or a pop like a blue, and your space completely changes.

(Jack Ryan Design)
Willing to go a little further with your ceiling? Try adding a stencil or pattern wallpaper to your ceiling for a more dramatic effect.
Furniture is such a great way to add a pop of color and if you get tired of it, just repaint it or buy a new piece! 
(Dimples and Tangles)
Paint a large hutch or buffet to add color to your space. Tie that color in with fabric or other accessories to tie the room together. 

(Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles)
If you have a colorful rug, pull colors out of your rug to paint your table, add fabric in the same hues, and even paint your walls or ceiling as well. 

Do you LOVE color?! Go big and bold by using bring colors to paint your table and chairs. Tie in the colors to a large piece of artwork hanging on a more neutral color wall.

  (Vintage Luxe)
Want color but don't want to commit to a large piece? 
Find a table with a colorful base or paint the base of your existing table in a color and leave the table top white or wood toned.
Don't forget the about the accessories that can bring color into your space with pieces that you love.
Find a fun, colorful light fixture that is the star of your room.

(The Glitter Guide)
Have a colorful collection of glassware or dishes?
The dining room is the perfect location to display them in all their glory!

Collect artwork that have similar color tones and display them in your space as a large gallery wall.
  This is also a beautiful space. Pick two or three colors you want to showcase in your space. Find artwork with those colors then tie in accessories and a rug in those colors to bring the whole space together.
There you have it! 
Do you love color or do you stick with a more neutral color palette? 
After checking out all these beautiful dining rooms, I'm ready to bring more color into my space!
Stay tuned next month where we will begin a whole new room and a whole new month of tips.
