DIY Spring Wreaths: 7 Unexpected Projects You Can Create

Spring is synonymous with growth, rebirth and brilliant flowers (such as buttercups and peonies) in full bloom. It’s the perfect time to display spring wreaths that add just the right amount of greenery to the porch or soften your decor with pastel hues.

But rather than shopping for a new life front door wreath or a cheaper option with artificial flowers, why not get your hands dirty and do some DIY? Floral artist and educator based in the Netherlands Anne van Midden advises that colorful dried flowers make “excellent everlasting wreaths” that will last all year long as long as they are kept out of direct sunlight and moisture. If you want to create DIY spring wreaths that will last the entire season, it’s a good idea to look for living material that can survive for a long time without water sources or dry wells, Midden says. For spring, she turns to plants like Pieris, pods, evergreens, acacia, baby’s breath, ivy, Mediterranean herbs, smilax, leather fern and willow.

Fernando Kabigting, founder of the Brooklyn-based floral design studio KDF flowers, says spring wreaths are all about selecting materials that reflect the colors of the season and retain their color as they fade, unlike a more muted fall or winter wreath. “There are no rules on what shape or form spring wreaths should take, but – taking inspiration from nature – you can give wreaths a shape that nods to spring landscapes and evokes the scenes found on shady forest floors, wide fields or those found outside your garden,” says Kabigting.

To compose your crown, he proposes to work with floral yarn to secure all greenery, flowers and branches together; using a glue gun with glue stick to stick any extra unruly pieces to your crown; and reach a Wire cutter And flower scissors (all can be found on Amazon or your local home and garden store) to make cutting and cutting the right size pieces to your design easy.

Looking for wreath ideas that you can display on your front door or use as wall decor? Below are seven inspiring DIY projects to help you welcome spring in style. For more tips on making non-traditional green wreaths, check out step-by-step tutorials. here.
