With the shortest month of the year upon us, Spring is just right around the corner. Today, we are going to share how we put together a Geranium and Succulent wreath. This wreath will look great on your door from early Spring and into Summer.
You can easily switch out your Geranium stems for different colors. White for early Spring, pink for late Spring, or Red for Summer. We purchased all of the supplies to make our wreath from Afloral, an online faux floral supply company, but you can easily find similar products at stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
