My front door really needs to be repainted but it’s been raining so much that I need to wait a while for that project. So instead I decided to make a wreath to update the door a bit. This is a super easy wreath to make that doesn’t cost very much either. Keep reading for a DIY spring wreath tutorial!
For the sign inside, I used a spare piece of wood I had lying around.
After it dried, I brushed paint over it. After the paint dried, I peeled the vinyl off. For a more detailed tutorial on making signs click here.
For the wreath, all you need is a grapevine wreath (I used a coupon at Joann’s and got it for $2-3!), a couple artificial greens, spring twigs if wanted, floral wire, and cotton stems. I ordered mine from Magnolia Market! First time I ordered from the Fixer Upper store itself and they came in a lovely box all wrapped nicely with a thank you note for Chip and Jo.
I laid the flowers on top to arrange them how I wanted. I put the two greens down first and pushed the stems into the wooden wreath and wrapped floral wire around it. Then I laid the cotton stems down and secure those also.
For the bow, I wrapped a piece of burlap ribbon around the wreath first.
I cut another piece of ribbon and folded it in an angle and put it on the bottom. These will be the wings. Then I cut a small piece of burlap, folded it in thirds, and then wrapped it around the middle of the bow and angled ribbon and hot glued it on. (Sorry, hard to take pictures while I had a glue gun in my hand!)
That’s it! On the door it went. I will be able to switch out the spring color accents every season so it will be used year round!
