I’m sorry Punxsutawney Phil, but there’s no way I’m coming to terms with 6 more weeks of winter. Nope. Not going to happen. So, to protest winter in hopes that spring will come early, I made and put up my spring wreath! It may be gloomy, cold, and snowy in some parts of the US, but my front door will greet you with bright and cheery colors. You might remember when I rounded up 25 of my favorite Bright and Beautiful Spring Wreaths just a couple of weeks ago. They all were so lovely that I had the hardest time deciding on how I actually wanted mine to look.

Quick DIY Spring Wreath! Easy to make, and so cheery and happy to dress up your front porch for spring! Made by Dwelling in HappinessBut that’s because when it comes to creating something, I’m super indecisive. Ok, maybe I’m indecisive about everything in general. I may have an “idea” of what I want to create in my head, but when I get to the craft store, I stand there and stare at everything for a very long time. I just shut down with all the options before me. Am I the only one?! But when it came time to make my wreath, I found a beautiful 18″ rustic grapevine wreath at Michaels for only $4.99. Right away I knew I wanted to use it. I was so proud of my indecisive self! However, when I started looking around at all the options my wreath could be dressed up with, I was clueless. Too. Many. Beautiful. Things. I looooved the fake peonies, but at $5.99 a pop, there was no way I was going to spend that much. Boo.

So, I went to the Dollar Store instead. I wasn’t even sure what colors I was going to use, but I searched through their flowers and ended up getting a simple purple heather and grass bundle. I also grabbed a large lavender butterfly. I finally decided I didn’t need to spend money on anything else, and I challenged myself to use all the crafting supplies I already have at home. I love a good challenge. 🙂

SONY DSCTo make your own DIY spring wreath you’ll need:

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Faux flowers
  • Wire cutters
  • Pom pom trim
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Large Butterfly
  • Glue gun + glue sticks

I wanted to keep my wreath reusable for other seasons, so I only used the glue gun to attach a bow to the ribbon at the end.

First, figure out where you want your pom pom trim to go, and tie it around a small vine in the back of the wreath. Alternatively, you could hot glue them in place. I started out with two pom pom “garlands,” but after I got it all together, I added a third to balance it out.

SONY DSCOnce your pom pom trim is in place, turn the wreath to the front and figure out where you want your flowers to go. I had some white hanging flowers that I had at home, but you could use any kind you’d like. Because the grapevine wreath already has sticks everywhere, I just slid in the stem of my flowers under the vines to hold them in place. I didn’t use any glue at all on my flowers, but you could if you want them to be permanent!

SONY DSCThe stems blended in really well! I wanted two different kinds of flowers, so I added in my heather stems after all my white flowers were in place, by also just sticking them in under the vines to keep them in place.

SONY DSCI loved that the heather grass stuck out below the flowers to give it some more depth.

SONY DSCClip your butterfly to the top corner of your wreath to balance it out a little.

SONY DSCAttach your ribbon to the top for hanging, and a bow if you’d like. I originally wanted to use some large gold glittery burlap ribbon I had on hand, but once I got it on and hung the wreath, I decided the burlap was just too big and too much. So, I chose a smaller aqua ribbon I had and used it to make a small bow and to hang it with.
SONY DSCMy front porch is already so much more bright and happy! On a side note, I told David we are totally painting our front door this summer. It just clashes with all my wreaths! 😉

SONY DSCI’m just so in love with this gorgeous grapevine wreath! I love all the curls and leaves and vines.

SONY DSCI’m still not totally sold on the huge butterfly, but maybe it’ll grow on me. What do you think?

Am I totally crazy for putting out my spring wreath already? When do you change out your winter decor for spring decor?

Hope your week is going great, friends!

      Thank you, Angela! Haha, I seriously hate when it happens! I hate being indecisive and not knowing what I want sometimes! But, in our defense, why do they have to give us so many pretty choices?! 🙂 Hope your weekend was great!
