Front Door Wreath Step-By-Step DIY Guide

Spring, summer, fall or winter… a wreath on your front door always makes for the perfect decor! And they’re super inexpensive to make.

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 your perfect 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:

1. Succulent Wreath


2. Celestial- Inspired Wreath


3. Hydrangea Wreath


4. Boxwood Wreath


Step Two: Buy Your Materials

Once you know what kind of wreath you want to make, it’s time to get your materials! We picked up all of our materials from Hobby Lobby, but Michael’s or any other home improvement store would carry these supplies as well. The best thing about Hobby Lobby is that they always have sales going on. I don’t think I have ever paid for anything there at full price. Everything we bought to make this wreath was 50% off, so we were able to make this wreath for under $15.

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!
