Add some spring to your front door with this pretty DIY Welcome Spring Wreath. Not only is it easy to make the supplies only cost less than $40 – far cheaper than purchasing a store-bought wreath!
Making a wreath is one of my favorite creative projects. When working on them I am totally and completely in the zone. There’s something about designing a wreath that simply speaks to my soul…
I tend to turn out about one wreath a month. I try to create variety, but I am straight up addicted to grapevine wreaths now (a strange addition, I know!) In the last three months alone, I’ve made several wreaths with a grapevine base – this Valentine’s Day love notes wreath (it went viral last month), a cute gnome wreath for Christmas and an elegant winter welcome wreath.
I had planned a break this month from my now familiar grapevine and intended to create another embroidery hoop wreath (like this one) for Easter, but wandering the isles of Hobby Lobby I decided I HAD to buy the GIANT egg-shaped grapevine wreath I found for $7.99 (plus I used my 40% off coupon!). I’ve created a HUGE egg-shaped wreath for Easter/spring. At this rate, I might be sharing grapevine wreaths ALL YEAR LONG!
DIY Welcome Spring Wreath
I actually purchased all of the supplies for this wreath pretty welcome spring wreath at Hobby Lobby. I will share links to the exact product where I can and make suggestions for where to purchase online as well.
To recreate this DIY welcome spring wreath you will need:
24″ Oval Grapevine Wreath Form (Hobby Lobby or Amazon)
Greenery (I used about half of a 6′ mini green ficus garland and lamb’s ear from Hobby Lobby)
Magnolia Flowers (I used a few flowers off this cream magnolia garland from Hobby Lobby and this pink magnolia stem)
Small Floral (I used this pink cherry blossom spray from Hobby Lobby)
Wood Tag (I used this wood scroll banner from Hobby Lobby. Here’s a similar banner on Amazon.)
Baby Pink Craft Paint (Hobby Lobby or Amazon)
Welcome Spring Cut File PNG or SVG
Electronic Cutting Machine
Matte Black Vinyl (I buy all my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl)
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Floral Wire Cutters and Floral Wire
DIY welcome spring wreath directions:
- Pull together all of your supplies and stage them in your crafting space.
- Deconstruct your medium and small floral stems. Save all of the pieces for use in the wreath outside of the stem base.
- Place the grapevine wreath on the center of the table. Note: I love crafting with grapevine wreaths. They add texture, PLUS pushing the greenery and flowers into the branches when you’re gluing them down helps to keep them stable.
- Take the greenery (frosted mini ficus vine) and place it as desired on the wreath. I used both full bunches and individually cut stems to fill in about half of my wreath.
- Take the magnolia flowers and disperse them throughout the greenery. I used individual flower heads on my wreath.
- Add lambs ear as filler amongst the greenery and flowers.
- Place the smallest flowers as accents throughout the greenery and floras. I like to extend these out slightly passed where the heavier greenery stops.
- Use the leftover leaves and stems from your floral bunches to fill in the wreath closer to the back and on the sides.
- Paint the wood banner using acrylic paint and a foam brush. Highlight the edges using a black sharpie.
- Cut out “welcome spring” in black vinyl and adhere to the wooden banner.
- Secure the banner to the top of the grapevine wreath using floral wire and hot glue. Note: You might be able to get away with using hot glue. The sun really beats down on my door in the afternoons/evenings and it melts the glue right off my wreath. I’ve learned to secure heavier pieces with wire.
You guys, this welcome spring wreath is GIANT. It takes up my whole door and I absolutely LOVE IT!
