The forsythia bush around the corner is starting to bloom, and that means one thing for me. Spring allergies are at my door. Anything that blooms in the south during the spring- forsythia, honeysuckle, trees- sets my allergies in motion for a month of sneezes and itchy eyes. This breaks my heart, though, because I adore the look of Spring’s flowering plants and bushes.
I have noticed that my allergies have gotten worse over the years. They caught my attention a few years ago while out doing a spring photo shoot with my daughter in her Easter dress. Have you ever tried to look through a camera viewfinder with watery eyes? It’s kind of hard to do for sure!
I’ve settled for faux vines and Xyzal® Allergy 24HR (available at CVS!) to keep my allergies at bay and still enjoy a little spring color. Xyzal® Allergy 24HR is taken at night and starts working in 60 minutes to relieve symptoms from both indoor an outdoor allergies. I like that I take it at night to help with a better night’s sleep because my allergy symptoms are relieved. I have four kids who are all rambunctious outdoor lovers, and I definitely need a way to keep up with them. Xyzal® Allergy 24HR offers 24 hour allergy relief that doesn’t fade.
A lovely spring wreath is a great way to bring the outdoors in without bringing in the pollen that comes with real flowers.
Here’s how to make this quick and easy wreath.
- Grapevine wreath
- Garland vine of flower of your choice
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
- Clay pot
Cut a long piece of twine. Place the clay pot in the center bottom of the grapevine wreath. Thread the twine through the hole in the bottom of the clay pot and the grapevine wreath, pulling the twine tight and tying the ends in a knot. There should be no slack in the twine. Cut the excess tails of the twine ends. The clay pot should be wiggly, but semi-secure with the twine.
Apply hot glue all over the bottom of the clay pot to secure it to the wreath. Do this on each and every bottom surface of the pot that touches the wreath.
Apply hot glue around the inside of the clay pot. Place the garland vine inside the clay pot, pressing it into the pot and adhering it to the hot glue. Bring the vine up and wrap it around the wreath. Cut the excess garland and use twine to secure the vine to the wreath.
Use a piece of twine to create a wreath hanger at the top in the center.
