Easy Spring Wreath

 

Easy Spring Wreath - Tutorial with Pictures

Who is ready for spring?  After this very long winter, I think most of us are more than ready for warmer weather, being outside, and the beauty that spring offers.  Even though spring doesn’t officially begin until March 20, I decided to welcome it a few days early with an easy spring wreath that I made for our front door.

Purchase Floral Stems and a Wreath Form

I purchased the floral stems and ribbon for this spring wreath from Michaels.  I used Forsythia, Dogwood, and Pussy Willow.  Since I’ve been wreath making for nearly 25 years, I knew that there was no need to purchase a wreath form, there would be plenty available in my basement.

Believe it or not, the two wreaths that I used were made by my grandfather in the late 1980’s.  I wired two skinny wreaths together to make one more substantial wreath.

Add Forsythia

I started the wreath by making a base with forsythia sprigs.  I wired each sprig into place.

Tip:  Cut the long forsythia branches that you buy at the craft store into smaller more manageable sprigs.How to Make a Spring Wreath

Add Dogwood

I then added a layer of dogwood sprigs to the wreath.  Again, I wired each stem into place.

A bow was added to the center of the floral pieces with the tails adhered in place with hot glue.

Hang and Enjoy

It won’t be long until the forsythia blooms in my neighborhood.  Until then, I’ll enjoy the faux version on my wreath.

    1. Thanks, Ginnie! That’s a very popular door style in Virginia. If you walk around my neighborhood everyone has that door but very few are the same pattern.
