We are in the process of cleaning out from winter and making way for spring. Our foyer and mudroom area are in the process of being cleaned from the winter snow boots and rock salt from the driveway. One of the easiest ways to prepare for spring is to add a fun bright wreath to your door or wall. The question, how to make a wreath can be easily answered by gathering any outdoor elements you love or purchasing faux flowers from your local craft store and adding them to a grapevine or foam wreath.
I used a grapevine wreath that was in our storage room and purchased faux hydrangeas and greens from Michaels Crafts. I am not a big fan of faux flowers but many times if you layer 3 or more different types, it looks less faux. I always just choose greens I love. I used a 50% off coupon so I was able to purchase the more expensive ones which usually look less faux to me.
I snipped the greens using a wire cutter and fastened with crafting wire. I also purchased a large letter “B” from Michaels and painted it a fun bright coral color. I used hot glue to fasten the letter.
The beautiful thing about a grapevine wreath is you can just push the stem of the flower inside the wreath. You will need to wrap the green wire around the greens and tie on the back side.
That’s it! Super easy and quick.
There is no right or wrong way when it comes to making a wreath. This spring wreath took almost 30 minutes to make and it looks fabulous hanging over the shelf in our mudroom. If you are looking for more ideas on how to make a wreath, be sure to check out our fall hydrangea wreath.
