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. . .
Congratulations, Rose!! I’ll email you as soon as possible. 😀
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

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