DIY Spring Wreath

I ‘ve been waiting for  warmer weather  to make my Spring wreath. Today, when I woke up to beautiful sunny skies I quickly grabbed my supplies and started working on the wreath for my front door. When I stepped out on my back porch to go photograph my finished wreath I was nearly knocked down by the wind. The wind was so aggressive  but, the sun was shining down and I could feel the warmth on my face. I lugged myself  towards the back of the house to place the wreath on the fence . I started photographing the wreath it was simply a gorgeous spring day, wind and all! The weather was definitely a welcome change from the cold rainy weather  that we have been experiencing the last few days. What’s the weather like where you live? I hope you like my Spring Welcome wreath as much as I do!

Would you like to know how I made my wreath ? Keep reading!
 
 Supplies needed:  
 
 
Oval Grapevine Wreath
Artificial Flowers 
Black Sharpie Marker
Floral Wire
Ribbon
 Jute
Burlap
Scissors
Chalk
Hot Glue Gun
 
 
Cut the bottom of the stem from the flowers . Using floral wire secure
the flowers together .Secure flowers to the wreath with floral wire or hot
glue, make sure you cover the wire with the flowers.
 
 
Make a template for your welcome banner by drawing and cutting out a 
triangle to the size you want. Trace 8 triangles on the burlap with chalk.
 
 
Cut triangles out. Using a Phillip screwdriver poke two holes in each
triangle. Use sharpie marker to make the letters . Spell out “Welcome”.
 
 
String together the triangle’s using the Jute. Hint: put tape or
glue on each end of the jute to make it pass easily through the
 holes. Glue your banner to the wreath.
 
 
I think the wreath looks great on the fence but, will look better on my front door. I really like the way the “Welcome” banner turned  out. I can use this wreath throughout the summer months. It will look great for Spring,  Easter and Summer. Have you bought or  made a wreath lately?

      It was really easy to make. The hardest part was making the banner. Great idea about reusing the wreath later when I 'm ready to put something else up. Thank you for stopping by! Have a great night, Kim

    Your wreath just shouts SPRING! Thanks for the inspiration. I have a grapevine wreath I made several years ago poked away on a shelf in my craft room. I have a great idea for it now! I'm pinning. 🙂

    How cute and I love how easy it looks to make! A lot of the wreaths I've seen so far were super bright and wouldn't match my style..love this one though!

    Super cute for spring decoration, I was gathering aromatic garden weeds to make one ,but my kids (my two princesses) ended up wearing it as a crown

    • KimSeghers

      Thank you Eileen A ! I bet that would have been a pretty wreath but the girls using your garden weeds were probably more fun fur them then you using the weeds for a wreath . I'm sure you enjoyed watching them wera their crowns! Thank you for visiting ! Have a nice week, Kim
