How to make a spring wreath {+ Giveaway winners}

Hello, my friends!

I am super excited for today’s post (How unusual!), my mom and I had a lot of fun making a spring wreath for our house, and I thought it would be fun to teach you guys how to too.

I spent some time on Pinterest looking for inspiration. I was amazed at how expensive wreaths can be to buy premade! Wreaths are really simple, and not very expensive, plus they are just so pretty and fun to look at. But before we get onto that, I want to announce my giveaway’s winner. . .

Thank you all so much for entering! I really enjoyed hosting this giveaway and hopefully, I’ll do another one again sometime soon.

How to make your own SPRING

For those who didn’t win, hopefully seeing a beautiful spring wreath and even making one of your own will cheer you up. ❀ =D

tHE SUPPLIES

Here’s what you need to make a wreath of your own:

Peonies

We bought these exact flowers off of Amazon and we were able to use just the leaves that were already on the flowers instead of buying new greenery. They are really pretty too!

(I forgot to get a picture before we pulled the leaves off — That’s why there aren’t any leaves on them)
An 18-inch grape-vine wreath

I linked one from Amazon, but I’d recommend buying from some place like Hobby Lobby or Joanne’s or any other craft store because they will be much cheaper – We bought one from Joanne’s on sale for about 4 dollars per wreath, so you can definitely find one cheaper.

A GLUE GUN + Glue Sticks

Just any simple glue gun will do for gluing the leaves onto the wreath.

wIRE Cutter

You’ll probably need this for cutting down the stems on the flowers because as I’ve found, scissors do not usually work.

That’s it for supplies! See what I meant about it being simple?

HOW TO MAKE the wreath

Step 1: Gather all your materials together and lay them out

This will make it easier when you are making the wreath so you don’t have to go and grab things as you work.

I once again didn’t get a picture of this step. I need to get more pictures apparently. :’D

Step two: Remove the leaves // greenery off the peonies & Cut the flower stems down

I removed the leaves by sliding them off the stems. I left about 4 inches of stem on each flower to allow enough room for tucking into the wreath.

Step three: Start gluing the leaves to the wreath.

I glued the leaves down. I mostly glued them to the outside. I just put a dot of hot glue right on the back of each individual leaf and stuck it down the way I wanted it. There are some little leafy sprigs that I put glue on the bottom of the stem and then I tucked into the wreath.

sTEP Four: Tuck in the Flowers

Once you have finished gluing all of the leaves around the wreath, go on and start sticking the flowers in.

Step six: find a place to hang up your wreath

You can basically hang your wreath wherever you want it — The most common place is a door of course, but we already have wreaths on our doors, so I hung it up in my room. You can also put it on a mirror or over a mantel. Just put it somewhere where you will enjoy seeing it!

Have you ever made your own wreath? Does it feel like spring where you’re at? What is your favorite spring flower?

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and have a chance to make your own wreath! Thanks so much for reading, friends, and have a wonderful day!

      1. Love the wreath!!

        It does not feel like spring here. I think it will skip spring this year and possibly go right to winter!

    Thank you Pearl! That wreath is so pretty! ❀ It feels like spring sometimes here; some days are very warm, others (like today) are quite chilly. My family has never really done anything with wreath-making, but I'm going to see if my mom would let me try sometime! It looks fun.

    That wreath is so pretty! I have made my own wreath before, but it was a long time ago. I actually just had to take it down because it was damaged from falling off my door so much (I should have done a better job at taping it πŸ˜…). Maybe I’ll make a new one like the one you did soon though!
