DIY: How to Make a Springtime Wreath

https://myfamilythyme.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Spring-wreath.jpg

Easy to DIY  to make your own beautiful springtime wreath for less than $20.

Do you recycle?  I make a very conscience effort to recycle around the house, but today I am recycling something different…a blog post.  You see, this was one of my first blog posts.  This DIY springtime wreath was project that my daughter and I made together after a Saturday trip to Hobby Lobby.  The problem was that no one read it.  It was before I learned about photography, social media, or the ever popular, Pinterest.  So I thought I would share it again…recycle.  🙂

Last week brought sunshine and warmth that FINALLY felt like spring.  I pulled out this wreath that I made last year.  It is in pretty good shape, with the exception of the ribbon that had faded, which is an easy fix.

As I said, this wreath began with a trip to Hobby Lobby. I went with a list, but of course, I felt like a kid in a candy store…there was so much to see.  All of the spring decor was inspiring!  I couldn’t help but notice a beautiful wreath; however, with all of the floral stems on sale, I decided to make a new springtime wreath instead.

I began with a basic grapevine wreath, some artificial boxwood stems (2 light and 2 dark), 2 forsythia stems, and some delicate white floral stems.  I also picked up a roll of fun ribbon for a bow.

I began by using my wire cutters to cut apart the boxwood and then tuck the pieces into the grapevine wreath.  I used hot glue and floral wire to keep it into place.

I worked my way around the wreath until it was full.  Then I filled it in with pieces of the forsythia.  It was starting to look like spring!

I finished it up with some sweet, delicate white floral sprigs, filler greenery, and a decorative bow.

And this spring, it received a new decorative bow.

This wreath came together in under an hour and for less than $20.

Nothing says “Welcome” like a beautiful wreath!

I hope you give making this beautiful Spring wreath a try!  I would love to hear your thoughts.

  5. I almost bought a wreath with the forsythia and other blossoms on it 2 weeks ago…unfortunately a lovely bird built her next in the basket currently hanging on my door and with 5 beautiful blue eggs now turned into babies that I can actually see through the glass on my door, well until they fly away I am going to leave it be. 🙂 You made a very pretty wreath and updating a bow is a key to a fresh update.

    1. How precious! How lovely that you have baby birds for the spring! Thank you for your kind words. I hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring!
