Nothing says, “Welcome to Spring” like a colorful front-door wreath. I feel like it might convince mother nature to warm up and give off her own blooms. Even if it doesn’t, I can still enjoy the pop of color. I hope you get inspired with one or more of these 13 DIY spring wreath ideas!
Even if you’re new to wreath making, we’ve gathered several DIY Easter wreath ideas that are PERFECT for beginners. You don’t have to be a craft expert or a blood relative of Martha Stewart to learn how to create a beautiful wreath.
One of the easiest ways to make a wreath is to start with a grapevine wreath foundation. These can be found almost anywhere, (Walmart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.) Once you have your wreath foundation, find your favorite items to add to it.
You can add moss and eggs, florals, ribbon, or a combination. You can spray paint the grapevine if you’d like, or leave it more natural looking. The easiest way to add things to your wreath foundation is with a trusty glue gun.
Another common wreath foundation is a foam wreath. These are usually white or green foam usually found right next to grapevine wreath forms. With a grapevine foundation, the frame is part of the wreath aesthetic. With foam wreaths, the form is purely functional, so the design should cover it completely.
You can wrap the foam in almost anything to begin. Twine, ribbon, or yarn are all popular choices. Once the foam is covered, you can begin to add items like florals, eggs, pompoms, or other cute items.
You can even cover the entire thing with baby chicks if you’d like!
The most difficult wreath to make is one that has a wire base that you weave fabric or burlap through to create a full lush wreath. Although these are a little more involved than simply wrapping or gluing flowers to a ready-made form, they are still completely doable. All it takes is a little time, ribbon, and a few extras to make it picture perfect.
While most of my wreaths I use on outside doors, you can also hang a wreath over a window, on a closet door, at the end of a hallway, or over your mantel. The possibilities are limitless so you might want to make more than one.
