I had a wicker wreath sitting around my house for the longest of time doing absolutely nothing. I used it a few times but felt it always needed some more character to it. It sat there for almost a year collecting dust until I had a lightbulb moment a couple of weeks back when I spotted some gorgeous and very realistic looking artificial tulips. I had to get to work on a new Spring wreath!
I’m at the top of a mountain shouting “Hooray!” right now or at least that’s how I’m imagining myself because guess what? SPRING is here and I’m ready to rock this season like it’s the last Spring of my life! I know it’s still cold outside but I’ve even started making my famous (admittedly only famous in my family) lemon, lime and mint lemonade that I absolutely love because the last few days have been magical, sunny and warm.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not a huge fan of cold weather. It’s nice at times but I much prefer sunny days and flowers all year long. So as soon as Spring comes around I turn into some sort of flower power extremist and go a bit wacko. Am I alone on this? I don’t know. But I sure do get excited to see some leaves and pretty colors popping up.
The hubby and I are taking on a bit of gardening this year and getting the kids involved. We even started our own herb garden. I will report back to let you know if we succeeded or failed but so far it looks so pretty.

How to make a flower DIY Spring Wreath
Start by cutting off the stems from the greenery you purchase. I used my pliers to do this. If you are new to crafting do not, I repeat do not use scissors. Years ago, the first time I tried doing something like this, I used Scissors and I ended up with broken scissors, sore fingers and flower stems that looked like a dog had been chewing on them all day long.
Once all your greenery and flowers have been cut to length (remember leave plenty of stem length to work with) start adding the stems into the wicker wreath by sliding the stems between the gaps of the wreath.
Use the florist wire to secure the stems of the greenery and flowers around the spring wreath. This helps to keep it all in place and so that no random stems fall out of the wreath.
Fill your Spring wreath until you are happy with how much foliage and flowers you have added. I was happy with minimal flowers in this wreath. I played around with more tulips and peonies but felt it was too much and I preferred extra greenery instead.
And that’s it! Here you have a beautiful and simple wreath that you can make in 10 minutes and you don’t have to deal with messy glue or burning your fingers which I am guilty of so many times!
I hung this wreath in my entryway last week. I admit I have moved it around the house about ten times in the past couple of weeks! Do you do that also or am I the only one that does this?
I’m happy I now have a new Spring wreath to add to my collection and I can’t wait to get on to making some more wreaths I have in mind for the coming months! Let me know what wreaths you have made recently! Would love to know. Share them with me on Facebook! I always love hearing from you guys there.
