I’m slowly working on getting my house ready for Spring and Summer and one of the projects on my to do list last week was to make a DIY spring wreath for my front door.
I’m not a huge crafter so I wanted to make this project as easy and inexpensive as possible. I decided to use a fresh Spring color that would look good with our blue front door and yellow fit the bill, with a little bit of white and some green to add interest.
To keep the cost down and to make it simple, I knew that I would just decorate one side of the wreath so all I bought was 3 flower stems from Hobby Lobby (1 yellow flower, 1 white flower and 1 green leaves) and 2 lemon stems. I already had the grapevine wreath, the burlap ribbon and the jute twine, that I used to hang it, so I saved some money there.
The first thing I did was to cut the flower and lemon stems apart so that I had individual stems. I kept the green leaves stem intact and only cut a few pieces off because I didn’t need very much to fill it out. Next, I arranged the yellow stems on the wreath, added some of the white and filled in the empty spaces with the greens. The lemons were last and once I placed them where I liked them, it was time to get my hot glue gun out.
Really this couldn’t be any simpler. I just took a stem out, put some glue on it and put back into where I had placed it before. After all the flowers and greens were done, I did the same to the lemons. The last two things to do were to tie the burlap ribbon and attach it with a piece of floral wire and to use a piece of jute twine to hang it on the front door.

Such an easy project and it cost me about $15 for the flowers and the lemons. Not bad. 🙂
What do you think about doing crafts like this? Love to do them or would you rather buy it already made?
