This spring wreath is so simple you’ll want to make one for every season…
With the weather turning warmer and the days getting longer, I find myself wanting to bring spring inside. Our house is usually decorated with dark reds and browns. I’ve been slowly replacing the dark accents with lighter and brighter. I’ll finish replacing the items when we move in a few months. Something about moving into a new house makes me want to change things up. Anyway…
The wreath I had on my door until the other day was of course dark red for Christmas. The weather pretty much ruined it so my door stood naked for a few days. After dropping my kids off at school, my youngest and I headed to the craft store in search of wreath supplies. I got all my supplies at Michaels Crafts for around $20. I of course used the 40% off one regularly priced item and my military discount.
Being impatient or motivated, whichever you want to call it, I started on the wreath as soon as we got home. Even with a toddler and three dogs running around I managed to finish the wreath within 30 min.

The first thing that I did was to cut the flowers apart, leaving about a 3 inch stem. Once they were cut I bent the stems over so that I could slide them into the wreath.
I put all my flowers place then secured them with a small amount of hot glue so they wouldn’t fall out. I don’t’ know about you but in our house the door gets slammed shut a lot by my kids.
Once my flowers were secured I got out the ribbon. I held the wreath up so that it was in the position I wanted it to hang in. The ribbon is going to be your hanger so if it’s off center your wreath will hang crooked. Leaving about a 12 inch tail, I wrapped the ribbon around the wreath 3 times, leaving another 12 inch tail.
The two tails will be tied in a bow, but to make sure that the bow is secure I used some hot glue.
Seriously that’s all there is too it. Within a matter of 30 minutes I brought spring to my naked front door. Of course by the time I was done my toddler had destroyed the living room. That’s ok though, she was making memories…
