Learn how to make this simple DIY Wreath for Spring to add a little spring time charm to your home. This Spring wreath is perfect for the front door or to display anywhere in your home!
Like many people right now, I am staying at home this spring season, with the occasional trip to the grocery store. I am not much of a stay at home person, and I tend to go stir crazy after just a few days. Mix in two kids that haven’t left the house in a few weeks and everybody is feeling it.
While I have planned projects and activities for the kids to do each day, I haven’t really done much for myself. Creating is definitely and outlet for me and I absolutely need it during this time of social distancing. This was a great stress reliever project for me! I thought that some of you might be feeling the same way as me so I wanted to put together a DIY craft that I could share with you, with supplies that most everyone would have access to right now.
On my last grocery shopping trip to Walmart I grabbed a few items in the floral craft section to make this simple DIY Spring wreath. You might even have things around the house already to put together a wreath!

How to create a simple DIY Spring Wreath
The first thing I do when creating a wreath is to take a pair of wire clippers and cut each flower stem and foliage branch off. I always cut them as long as possible first and then trim them down once I need them. I don’t want to start off with the stems to short! You never know how long you might need them to make your spring wreath!
Next I removed all the odd colored leaves from the base of the flowers. I kept a few dark natural toned leaves on some of the flowers for variety.
For this DIY Spring wreath I decided to only fill in the bottom half of the wreath. If you want a full wreath you will need more flowers and foliage.
I started with placing the eucalyptus first. I wanted the flowers to be centered in the bottom, so I started the eucalyptus along the bottom edges. I like to just tuck the stems into the grapevine wreath form for now. That way I can move things around a bit as I figure out how I want my wreath to look. So don’t glue anything down just yet.
After that I started with my center flower, which I had planned on being a white Lily, but in the end it turned out slightly different then I originally planned. I used my wire cutters to trim down the stems so that they would fit in the wreath form without sticking out the back of it.
After that I added the beautiful pink Poppies and the the remaining foliage and small white flowers.
I decided to not use the pink daisies that came in the flower bouquet for my wreath. I liked the look much better without them and my daughter was happy to have them to play with.
Once I had everything in place of how I wanted it to look. I slid each flower out just enough to add some hot glue to the stem and then slid it back into place. I was careful to not get any hot glue on the other leaves and flowers when I did this.
A new spring wreath for the porch meant that I needed a new spring porch look to go with it! I mean that is only fitting right?!
I started with the vintage egg crate that my mother in law found for me. It was in my Sunroom for a long time and since my porch is covered I figured it would be safe to sit outside. Then I added my DIY painted Easter Eggs in a jar I found on a previous thrifting trip. – Man oh man do I miss going to the thrift stores!
Of course I had to add the easy barn quilt sign that I made with the same colors as my DIY Easter Eggs. I love the bright cheerful pop of color that both of these add.
The ‘Hello Spring’ sign, fabric carrots and small watering can all came from the Target dollar spot and were finds from previous years. Then I finished off the look with some aged terracotta pots and spring greenery!
There is my early Spring porch look for this year complete with my new DIY Spring wreath! I may switch it up after Easter or once the spring flowers start arriving in the stores!
I hope that you are staying healthy and safe and hopefully this DIY project will provide you with a little creative outlet during this time!
