Project: Simple Spring Wreath

We may still have some snow on the ground here in Minnesota, but I am thinking and decorating for spring. It was time to take the winter wreath down from the door and replace it with something a little more colorful. I didn’t want something that was just for Easter with eggs and such. I wanted something that looked a little more natural.

I like using a grapevine wreath because I am able to insert the floral stems in secure enough that I don’t need to wine or glue them in place. This means I can easily use this same wreath form for other seasons by changing out the flowers and ribbon. Since I live in a condo my wreath is on a door that is indoors so it doesn’t get effected by weather or wind, if you were making something similar for say a covered porch, I would wire or glue things in to keep them secure.

This is almost so simple it isn’t worth a tutorial, but I thought I’d go through the supplies and steps anyway.

Supplies:

  • grapevine wreath
  • three or four floral stems with multiple stalks on them, I had two stems of the pink berry/flower things and two of the white pussy willow type which I cut into smaller pieces.
  • scissors or wire cutter
  • ribbon, I used a yard

1. Cut apart the floral stems to get separate flowers or sprigs. I just used utility scissors for this, but wire cutters would be good too.

2. Insert the stem securely around the wreath by tucking them in between the vines. I like to chose a center point for the top and work in both directions.

My sprigs were long and floppy, so I also used the vines to hold them in shape with the wreath where I wanted.

3. Once you have all the flowers and greenery in place, tie a ribbon to the top of the wreath. I tied it around a big vine.

I then wrapped the ribbon a few times around our wreath hook to hold it in place and tied a bow.

As I said, dead simple and ready to hang in almost no time.
