Now that Spring has finally arrived (at least according to the calendar, not sure Mother Nature has caught on yet as it is still pretty chilly and rainy here…). Usually our Spring in Northern California consists of temps in the 70s and mostly sunshine. Not so much this year. But, since it is technically Spring, I wanted to create a bright and colorful DIY Spring wreath to hang on my front door to give my house a pop of Spring colors. And who knows, maybe it will clue the universe in to the fact that the weather needs to catch up!
DIY Spring Wreath Supplies and Materials
- Grapevine Wreath Form
- Artificial flower stems (mix of blue, pink, and white Spring colors) with big leaves
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Wire Cutters
First, I placed my wreath form on a foam board to protect the table I was working on from hot glue (I’m not the most coordinated with a hot glue gun; I regularly end up with hot glue over everything, including myself… :-/ ). I gathered all my supplies and placed them into my work area.
Next, I began using the wire cutters to remove most of the stem from the faux flowers and placing the flowers onto the wreath form. I didn’t glue them in place until I had all flowers in the location on the wreath form, as I wanted to make sure the flowers were arranged in a way I like before gluing them down permanently. I started with the largest flowers first, and then added the smaller flowers. Here is a visual of the wreath being put together:
Once I had all the flowers in place to my satisfaction, I used the hot glue gun to glue each flower and leaf into place:
The completed wreath:
I then hung the wreath in it’s final location on my front door. Definitely gives the front of the house a bit more of a Spring-feel, even if the weather isn’t!
Have you created any Spring wreaths? If so, I’d love to see them! Thanks for reading!
