There’s nothing like feeling all the spring fever feels after a long cooold winter. This post is all about spring wreaths, let’s tap into your creative side and create a beautiful statement wreath for your front door!
DIY Spring Wreath
I’m so excited for the snow to melt, temperatures to raise and for some sunshine, so I decided to get a jumpstart! So I started gathering some inspiration and ideas by visiting some of my favorite home decor sites, like Pottery Barn, Etsy, and Kirklands. Viewing a few ideas ahead of time, always helped me figure out how I wanted my space to look.
My goal was to purchase everything I needed to make a beautiful spring wreath for under $30.
In efforts to make this a one-stop-shop, I collected everything that was on my list from Hobby Lobby. For the most part, Hobby Lobby’s floral department is always 50% off, so right off the bat I know that I am going to be able to maintain my budget.
To make a wreath like mine, you need to start with an inexpensive grapevine wreath that normally costs about $5 but keep in mind that everything in the floral department is 50% off! The size of the grapevine wreath that I use is 14″, this is the perfect size to place on a door.
Then, I begin to browse the massive selection of faux flowers! With a color scheme in mind, I venture towards some green, pink and white tone flower sprays and stems.
You want to keep in mind that the flower sprays should be full and fluffy, the items below will help make your wreath look nice full. I prefer to start with a bush or spray that is really natural looking, even though we’re using fake flowers, it doesn’t mean that they need to look fake!
Let’s make this beautiful spring wreath shall we?
|| Materials ||
- 14″ Grapevine Wreath
- Variety of floral stems, bush’s, spray’s, and picks
- Bow (optional)
- Glue Gun (Not required)
- Floral Wire (Not required)
|| Step 1 ||
Begin by tearing/cutting the floral spray/bush into groups, you will see that each arrangement is wrapped together in bunches. Be sure not to cut your stems too short, separate the stems and cut them to the desired length once you know where you want to place the stem.
|| Step 2 ||
Once each bundle is separated, you can lay out the clippings on top of the wreath before you begin to tuck and shove each wire stem into the grapevine. If you wish to use floral wire you can, I tend to just attach the florals directly to the wreath frame by pushing the wired stems into the intertwined branches so that they’re nice and snug. You may also find a glue gun use-full as well, not necessary but if you find flower heads with no stem, a glue gun might be useful.
With a layout in mind, begin building your wreath. You will start to notice that the full & thick bundles will soon cover the brown grapevine frame and pretty much act like ground cover.
Periodically, pick up your wreath to make sure that all of the floral pieces are nice and secure.
|| Step 3 ||
After you have placed the thick bunches down, it is time to add in the flower heads and berries!
With my budget and design layout in mind, I knew that wanted to avoid large flower heads on my wreath. I was envisioning subtle and small pieces to incorporate throughout. While still in Hobby Lobby, I walked down the wedding decor aisle and hit the jack pot! This aisle had everything I needed which were small picks and individual short stems that were perfect for tucking into my wreath.
Now you have made a gorgeous spring wreath for your front door! If you wish, add a bow to the top or bottom of your wreath just to add to the sweetness!
