I’m excited to share this Easy Spring Floral Wreath as part of the Celebrate Spring Blog Hop!
Welcome to My Family Thyme! I am happy you are here! If you are visiting from my sweet friend, Sonya’s, welcome! Don’t you just love her style and those French inspired Easter eggs? She’s so creative!
I am so excited to join in the Celebrate Spring Blog Hop hosted by the lovely Leen from Sand Dollar Lane.

After a long gray winter here in Connecticut, it finally feels like spring is on its way!
The snow is melting, birds are chirping, and it feels like the world is waking up. It is filling me with a renewed sense of optimism.
To welcome this season, I started added a few spring touches inside my home. I recently had made and shared these simple Decoupage Easter Eggs along with this adorable Easter Bunny Reverse Canvas, but I needed something for the outside. When I was shopping at Hobby Lobby, this ranunculus caught my eye and I decided it would be perfect in an easy spring floral wreath for my back door! Let me show you how you can make one too!
- grapevine wreath
- greenery (2 bushes)
- flower stems (I chose ranunculus)
- wired ribbon of choice
- Bowdabra bow wire
- wire cutters
- glue gun and glue

- Using your wire cutters, trim any loose pieces from your wreath.
- Cut each little cluster of flowers and greenery off of its bunch, leaving at least a couple of inches of the wire stem.
- Arrange the greenery on the wreath, layering the two different kinds. I began with the boxwood and added the second. When I was happy, I tucked the wire stem into the wreath and secured it with hot glue. Do this for both the top and the bottom of one side, leaving a gap where you will attach a bow.
- Repeat this process by arranging and layering in the flower stems. Play with the greenery so it overlaps a little. When you are happy with the placement, tuck the wire stem and secure it with hot glue. I love to create visual interest by layering the variety of textures and colors.
- Using the Bowdabra, the Bowdabra bow wire and wired ribbon, create a bow by making a loop and then twisting the center before creating the next loop. I have had this tool for at least 20 years. I love it and use it to create all of my bows!
- Attach the bow to the back of the wreath and enjoy!
I actually made two of these wreaths…one for my home and one for my mom. She suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease and lives at a long-term care facility. After six long months, I will finally be able to have an in-person visit with her. I am so thankful for her amazing caregivers that have kept her safe, healthy, and happy through this challenging time. I am hoping that this spring floral wreath will bring a smile to her face and to those around her too!
