Ahh spring! Finally all of the snow is starting to melt, the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping. We love this season because it’s so full of life and color and puts everyone in a good mood after a long MN winter. If you’re wanting to add some greenery and color to your front door or in your home, we’re sharing a step-by-step guide on how to create a spring wreath.
Step One: Look for Inspiration
When it comes to a lot of home, crafty, and DIY ideas, I always turn to Martha Stewart. I grew up with a very crafty mom and one that loved Martha for her design ideas, so she has always been such an inspiration to me. Pinterest is another great place to look for inspiration when figuring out the type of spring wreath you’d like to make.
Here are some of our favorites:
Step Two: Buy Your Materials
- Grape Vine Wreath | $2.99
- Greenery, Dried Flowers | $1.99
- Floral Wire | $2.99
- Wire Cutters
Step Three: Wrap Greenery
Once you’ve gotten the few supplies listed above, clip the greenery off of the stems. Then take the greens and start wrapping them around into the wreath. I always do a little dry run-through and then start wedging all of the pieces into the wreath first and then taking the wire to secure any loose ends. Continue around the wreath until completely covered with greens.
Step Four: Add Pops of Color
Lastly, add some fun pops of color or just a simple burlap bow. Sometimes I’ll take pieces of soft yellows or pinks and add in a few stems throughout the wreath. Make the wreath your own by adding your favorite colors or bows that reflect your style. There’s not right or wrong way to make a wreath and it should be something that shows off you and your family’s personality!
