Create a Simple Spring Wreath for Your Home

With the hope of spring temperatures on the horizon, I decided to give my home a spring upgrade this weekend. I pulled my floral monogram ‘W’ wreath out of storage and hung it on the front door. I also pulled together a wreath to hang over the mirror in my living room that I am excited to  share with you today.Create a Simple Spring Wreath for Your Home // Twin Stripe

This versatile wreath only took me about an hour from start to finish, including hanging up the wreath. It will bring a burst of fresh life  into your home after so many long winter days. I easily found all materials at a local craft store for around $15. Click  through to learn how to put this simple, yet beautiful wreath together. 

Materials:
Grapevine Wreath
Wire cutter
Mixed faux greens (ferns, eucalyptus, etc.)
Small flowers
Hot glue gun
Floral wire
Ribbon

Directions: Create a Simple Spring Wreath for Your Home // Twin Stripe

1. Begin the wreath by fashioning the bouquet of greenery. All of my pieces were attached to a larger bunch, so I started by cutting a few fern leaves off and arranging them tip to tip. Make sure to hold your ferns up to the wreath to make sure they are the right length  for your wreath – I let mine hang down about an inch or so on either side. When I had the length correct, I hot glued the ferns together in the middle so they would stay in place.

2. Next, I added eucalyptus branches and one small spray of white cherry blooms to my bouquet. When I was happy with the arrangement, I tightly secured the pieces with floral wire.

3. Secure the greenery to wreath with floral wire and add a bow. As you can see, I made a last minute decision to change my ribbon out. I started with a thinner satin ribbon, but I ended up going with a thicker wired ribbon that worked much better with the wreath.

4. If you plan to hang your wreath over a mirror, loop  a piece of ribbon through the top of the wreath so it is easy to hang. If you plan to hang it on a door, you can add a small piece of looped floral wire to the back so it easy to hang on your front door and welcome spring!Create a Simple Spring Wreath for Your Home // Twin Stripe A new spring wreath for your door or inside is a great way to accessorize your home for a change of seasons.

    1. I love making wreaths – so much better than buying one. And don’t feel bad, I just took down my winter wreath too. 🙂

  1. Love the wreath. It is so simple to make and you can colorize the ribbon to match the decor. When you use greenery, it is universal. I think everyone is looking for something to decorate with that promises SPRING! We have had enough of winter.

  2. So pretty! I love how you styled the bouquet- it’s lush, but still has some color, so perfect for a spring wreath! And I love the ribbon you used! The gold and white is so pretty and fresh. I may need to try this… only I’m sure it won’t look as nice as yours. 🙁 HAHA! xx

    1. You could totally make a beautiful wreath! Or I can make you one and you can makeover my closet! Haha. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Brittany! It is pretty simple to create – I would love to see yours if you end up creating one! 🙂
