DIY spring wreath

I love to make wreaths.. I could make one every week if I had reason to! My grandma recently asked if I could make her one and I totally jumped on that 🙂  She was hoping for a spring wreath that she could use into summer as well.  Tulips have always been a favorite of mine (and is my current wreath on the door!) so I thought what better way to welcome the new seasons than pink?!


Supplies needed:

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Flower of your choice
  • Letter
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon

Step 1:

Come up with a design idea!  Choose a color palette or flower and mix and match some greenery to add more to it!

Step 2:

Lay out the flowers and initial or numbers how you’d like them to go! Don’t worry about gluing anything down just yet. After I set them out with how I wanted them to look – I cut all the steps so that the flowers were apart and then they were good to go!

Step 3:

I started to intertwine the tulips into the wreath and adjusted as I went along.  I did not glue any of the flowers either – they just stick right in there!

Step 4:

Once it started to take shape, I had to decide where I wanted the bow to go and how far down I wanted the tulips to go.  Once I figured out where the bow would go, I placed a ribbon over the middle of the tulips.

Step 5:

Next, I started to place the tulips in the other direction so I could fill out the left side of the wreath.

Once I started, I realized I should move to the other side so I can actually see how I wanted them placed.

Step 6:

Adjust flowers how you want them to look -fill in any empty areas or lopsided areas!

Step 7:

Make a bow ahead of time and glue it right on where you already had your ribbon.  I switched up my ribbon so it would flow with the tulips more for Spring.

Step 8:

Lastly, turn over your letter (or numbers) and hot glue it right onto the wreath.  If there are loose edges on the wreath where your letter is going, I will sometimes put the letter under those for more support.

And when you’re all done, hang hang hang it!  Or in my case, I’ll give it on over to my Grandma 🙂  You could also put ribbon around the top and hang it that way if that’s more your style!

Easy peasy, right?!  I might just need to go into the wreath making business because it’s just so fun!

Happy Tuesday!

    This is so pretty! It’s perfect for spring. I just might need to make one! I parted with my fall and Halloween wreaths that I made for someone else, so I suspect this year I will be making a lot of wreaths myself. I adore this cute idea! Thank you for sharing. =)
