Spring Wreath Inspiration

Spring Wreath Inspiration by virginiasweetpea.com

Have you started thinking about spring?  The past few days have been warm and my thoughts have wondered to spring even though I know it is still a month away.  I’ll soon need a new front door wreath for spring and have been thinking about what I might want to make.  Since many of you might also be thinking about spring wreaths, I thought I’d share some of mine from years past.

Crepe Paper Wreath for Spring

I still adore the crepe paper wreath that I made for 2013.  If you make this, be sure to hang it in a protected area.  Mine blew off my front door and got slightly damaged by rain.

 

Moss and Nest Wreath

A moss covered wreath with nests graced my door in 2012.  The nests were all ones that students brought in to school to show the class.  Don’t worry, they were empty before the kids brought them to school.

 

Yo-Yo Wreath for Spring

I still love the yo-yo wreath that I made for spring 2011.  The yo-yo’s were left over from a previous project.

 

Rolled Flower Spring Wreath

I was industrious in 2011 and also made this rolled flower wreath.  Dogwood is Virginia’s state flower making this a perfect fabric for a Virginia girl’s spring wreath.   This wreath faded badly and I didn’t throw it away, you’ll want to see how I transformed it to a fall wreath!

 

Burlap, Fabric and Button Wreath

A burlap and fabric wreath with buttons was crafted for spring 2010.  I enjoyed this for several springs until the fabrics became too faded to display.  I removed all of the fabric and burlap circles and used the form for another wreath.

 

Lemon Head Wreath

2009’s spring wreath was a faux lemon head one.  The “lemon heads” are ping-pong balls spray painted yellow with sugar looking glitter sprinkled on top.  It looks good enough to eat, doesn’t it?

 

I hope one of my past projects may be of inspiration for your spring 2014!

  1. Your wreaths are always so beautiful! I am definitely looking forward to spring and thinking spring projects! Let the warm weather begin!

  2. I love your wreaths. I’m like you and always like something on my door. My kids make fun of me for it. I’m glad I’m not alone. You should go link this up to our Tips and Tricks Party. The main theme this week is Wreaths. http://fearlesslycreativemammas.blogspot.com/2014/02/tips-and-tricks-wreaths.html

  3. Love the wreaths! You inspire me to think outside the box as I am tired of the traditional container with the seasonal flowers and greens.

    Sure hope spring has not fogotten us. We just had 11 more inches of snow yesterday here where I live in Minnesota. We were looking forward this weekend to visiting our son at graduate school in NE but now that’s off our radar. Maybe I can skate over to the local JoAnn Fabrics for more inspiration and pick up some goodies for a spring wreath.

    Curious – love those little yo yos. I remember my grandmother making them. Any ideas on what else to make with them?

    • June – I have used yo-yos to decorate sweatshirts. I cut the front of the shirt to make it a cardigan, sewed material around the raw edges to finish it and then put yo-yo’s around the neck.

  4. These are lovely wreaths.
