Flower Filled Wheelbarrow Spring Wreath
Spring is in full force here in Virginia. Trees are blooming as are spring-flowering bulbs and it’s so beautiful. I’ve been decorating my home for spring and today I’m sharing a Flower Filled Wheelbarrow Spring Wreath that I made for our sunroom.
Today’s spring wreath is part of a monthly Pinterest challenge hosted by Cindy of County Road 407. Each month Cindy selects a picture from Pinterest and challenges our group to create our own version of the look.
Many thanks to Cindy for hosting this challenge.

Our Inspiration for this Challenge
This month we were inspired to create a spring wreath inspired by this Garden Hose Spring Wreath created by Jill of Create, Craft, Love.
This wreath has a gardening theme with its hose, garden gloves, and spring florals.
Wheelbarrow Spring Wreath
For my garden themed spring wreath, I used a small wheelbarrow from Oriental Trading that I purchased a few years ago.
Below are a few more decorative wheelbarrows from Amazon that possibly could work for this project.
I usually use this wheelbarrow for Easter decor and fill it with eggs. You can see it filled with my carrot Easter eggs in this Easter decorating post from last year.
How to Make the Wreath
The first thing that I did was fill the wheelbarrow with floral oasis.
Floral oasis is for arranging fresh flowers. A better choice for this project would have been dry floral foam which is designed for faux flowers. I used what I had on hand since I’m shopping as infrequently as possible.
I then wired the wheelbarrow to a grapevine wreath form.
The next step was the fun part, filling the wheelbarrow with spring flowers and greenery.
The flowers and greenery that I used came from Dollar General. I had no idea that Dollar General carried faux florals and was pleasantly surprised at their selection, all at a reasonable price.
Dollar General doesn’t offer the flowers that I used online but if you shop there in person, look for a flower cart near the checkout. I shopped at Dollar General in Lynchburg and in Moneta for my florals and they were located in the same spot in both stores.
Below are a few similar florals from Amazon if you want to make a wreath like mine and are being wise and not shopping unnecessarily. (I purchased my florals from Dollar General before things got as bad as they are now.)
I used five rose bundles and four fern bundles from Dollar General, all just $2 each.
I cut the rose and fern bunches into single short stems and inserted them into the oasis.
The last step was to make a bow with ribbon from the craft aisle at Walmart that I already had in my craft stash.
I planned to hang this on my front door but the wreath was too heavy for the 3M hanger that I have on the glass, so I used it on our sunroom wall.
We live on a corner and this wreath can be seen as people walk or drive past by our home.
The flowers are from my yard and the nest is a spring DIY project that I’ll be sharing tomorrow.
Many thanks to Cindy of County Road 407 for organizing this fun monthly Challenge!

So pretty Paula, Springy and happy and creative all at the same time. Love the wheelbarrow ~ what a cute idea.

I love your wreath, Paula! It is perfect hanging on the bricks there in your front porch sunroom… I too am amazed at the nice florals you can find at the dollar stores each year. Love the roses and the ferns look so real!
Happy spring to you,

This is such a sweet spring wreath! I love the wheel barrel and that color pink is beautiful!
Thank you! I have already enjoyed this wreath so much. It really brightens up my porch wall.
So many beautiful ideas of where to hang a spring wreath. I usually just put on on the basement door. I am going to use your idea to put one outside maybe on my deck so I can see it out the kitchen window.
You know that I’m loving this wheelbarrow spring wreath! I have a small wooden wheelbarrow that I may can use to make something similar. Thanks for the inspiration!
That is beautiful! I love the wheelbarrow and all the pale pink flowers. Pinned.
I love wheel barrows! That is the cutest thing ever! And the inspiration hose wreath is just so adorable, too! Thanks for sharing and linking up.
