Good morning, friends! Sadly, the calendar and weather have not corresponded much yet this spring, but I’m sure hoping that having pretty flowers out will help bring warmer weather! Today I’m sharing how to make the easiest spring wreath ever, and I hope it’ll help you get in the mood for warmer weather, too!
This spring wreath took me about 20 minutes to put together. With a toddler and pre-toddler around, that’s about all this momma has time for sometimes!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Large grapevine wreath (I got mine at Michael’s)
- 1 greenery garland (also from Michael’s)
- A couple of bunches of pretty faux flowers
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Ribbon for hanging
While I was at Michael’s finding supplies for this wreath, I had in mind of using a bunch of sprigs of greenery. I realized the bill was really adding up fast as I had a cart full of them. I put them all back and instead, I grabbed a garland full of greenery (and score, it was half off!) to use. Michael’s always has 40% coupons you can use, too! I hadn’t thought to use an already-put-together garland as the “meat” of my wreath, but boy did it make it so easy!
First, I just tucked one end of the garland under some of the branches of the grapevine wreath. The best part of this easy wreath (in my opinion) is there is no hot glue gun needed (except for the ribbon!)!
I then just started twisting floral wire around the branches of the wreath and the garland, fastening them together so they’d stay put. I would wire them together every 6 inches or so, as I went around. When I got back to where I began, I used my wire cutters and just snipped off the remainder of the garland. Some of the greenery was a little wiry and sticking out in weird spots, so I just tucked a few of the faux leaves under the branches of the wreath.
Next I cut all the flowers off of the bunches using my wire cutters, leaving about 3 inches of the stem attached. I then started sticking the stems into the wreath sideways so they’d sit snug and not fall out. I kept placing flowers until about 1/3 of the wreath was covered.
I filled in any empty gaps I saw in the greenery using the extra piece I cut off from the garland. I glued a little bow and a ribbon for hanging around the top.
I love having spring on my door, if nowhere else! I also love how lush the wreath looks and the pretty little flowers, too.
Do you have your spring wreath out on your day yet? Hope your weather is warmer than it has been here!
