I absolutely love early spring. The little glimpses of warmer weather in early spring beg me open to the windows for a bit, throw on my flip-flops, and leave the heavier coats on their hooks by the door.
My favorite, FAVORITE part of early spring?? THE FLOWERS! Especially daffodils and forsythia. Maybe it's because they're my favorite color? Maybe it's because they are among the early spring bloomers? In any case, I love them. When I see their bright yellow buds, I know for sure that spring is coming.
This year, I've been so inspired by nature's beauty that I wanted to do some spring decorated cookies, like this pretty (and easy!) forsythia twig wreath!
What you'll need:
* your choice of cookie base. Base icing flood is optional!
* brown icing- thick!
* Decorator tips 1 or PME 1 or 1.5 - depending on how thick you want the branches
* Scribe tool or some other tool to mark dried icing
Although the twig wreaths are pretty au naturel, I wanted to add some blossoms to mine! I used thickish yellow icing with a tiny star tip to make blossoms closer to the center of the wreath. Then I switched to a small round tip to make the impression of smaller blossoms towards the twig ends. You could even add in tiny dots of green for leaves!
I think that forsythia wreaths placed on a door are the perfect way to Welcome Spring!
