DIY Spring Wreath for The Front Door

I’m slowly working on getting my house ready for Spring and Summer. One of the projects on my to do list last week was to make a DIY spring wreath for our front door.

DIY Spring wreath for your front door. So easy!

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.

I knew that I would just decorate one side of the wreath so all I bought was 3 flower stems from Hobby Lobby and 2 lemon stems. The grapevine wreath, burlap ribbon and jute twine were already in my stash, so I saved some money there.

Supplies for DIY Spring Wreath

  • grapevine wreath
  • 1 stem of yellow faux yellow flowers
  • 1 stem of faux white flowers
  • stem of faux greens
  • 2 stems of faux lemons
  • burlap ribbon
  • floral wire
  • hot glue
  • wire cutters
  • jute twine to hang wreath

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. Once I placed them where I thought they looked good, it was time to get my hot glue gun out.

Really, this couldn’t be any simpler. I took a stem out, put hot glue on it and placed it back into the wreath.  After all the flowers and greens were done, I did the same with 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.

I love my new spring wreath. It was such an easy project to do and it cost me about $15 for the flowers and the lemons. Not bad. πŸ™‚

What do you think about doing crafts like this? Love to do them or would you rather buy it already made?

    If it would turn out like your wreath I would make it Kristi but I have never been able to arrange flowers in the simplest fashion. I also can’t tie a decent bow so I buy my wreaths and arrangements. I like yellow and blue together, Your wreath is perfect for Spring, even summer. Debbie

      Thanks so much Debbie. I’m not big on arranging flowers either but this really was so easy. I bet you could do it. πŸ™‚ You could buy a bow already made so you wouldn’t have to worry about it.

      Thanks for stopping in Debbie. It’s always great to hear from you. Hope your week is a good one.

    Absolutely adore this – especially with your bright blue door! And even more so that everything isn’t centered on the bottom, but on the side…extra bit of visual interest!
    These are the kinds of things I would love to be doing – store bought wreaths aren’t as pretty anyway, and you can buy one plain wreath “base” so to speak and change it whenever the mood suits you! πŸ˜€

      Thank you! Putting everything on the side is only my lazy way of doing it. πŸ˜‰

      I looked at pre-made wreaths and, besides being expensive, they were all kind of puny so I like to be able to make what I want. And you’re right about changing it, I’ll probably end up changing mine. I tend to get tired of things pretty quickly.

      I always appreciate it when you stop in. Have a great week!

      Thank you Tara. I love the lemons too but my husband thought it was really strange to put them on it, and he thought they were real. πŸ˜‰

      I appreciate you stopping by.

    The wreath is really cute and I love your front door!

    As for me making one… last time I tried to make a wreath, it was one of those ornament ones for Christmas that everyone was making about 5 years ago, and after many tears, lets just say I bought a regular pine wreath at the nursery where we got our tree LOL

      Thanks Rue.

      At least you had the guts to try making one of them. I look at the pictures of those ornament wreaths every year and decide ummm…no. Maybe next year. πŸ˜‰

      Thanks so much for stopping in Rue.

    I would much rather do them myself! They cost way too much in the stores. I saw one yesterday at a major craft store, very similar to yours, price…..$79.99! Now you know how much you saved! Yours is very pretty, and looks great on your door!

    Love the wreath Kristi! I have to change mine soon and it’s with a grapevine wreath so I could just change the bow and berries on it to something spring, and no it’s not a Christmas bow, thank you! πŸ˜‰ I noticed your door handle and I really like it! Thinking of updating mine now! Take care! MJ

    Kristi your wreath came out great and I love the yellow against your pretty blue front door. I love the jute to hang it with and the burlap ribbon too! You are inspiring me… front door needs something badly for spring. I must admit I just took down my completely dead evergreen wreath from Christmas not too long ago πŸ™‚

      Thanks Lisa! I had my Christmas wreath up for far too long too! It’s nice to see something new in its place. I’m so glad to hear that I inspired you.

      Thanks so much for stopping in and Happy Spring!
