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