Getting Ready for Spring : Spring Baby Grass Wreath by Patty Schaffer

I was perusing the web the other day and catching up on my favorite blogs when I stumbled upon this adorable spring project created and designed by Patty Schaffer.  I love how simple it is, how versatile and easy it would be to change it up a bit and that it totally says that spring is indeed on it’s way if not here already.

That little banner that she created is just precious and instantly brought a smile to my face…what a fun idea!

To learn how to create this project yourself please check out Patty’s blog post here at, Capture the Details and while you’re there be sure to check out her archives as she has numerous digital downloads and freebies to be found as well!

Wishing you all a very happy Easter weekend!  May  there be a wee bit of grass for you to wiggle your toes in!
