There’s something about wreaths that just make a home feel put together. You can incorporate elements of the season or holidays, and proudly display on your door, over a mantel, or – as is the case with our spring wreath – in my daughter’s bedroom. It’s surprisingly easy to make your DIY wreath full of springtime flowers.
What you’ll need
- Wreath form (I like a smaller frame, like this 9-inch recycled foam)
- Ribbon – the wider, the better
- Faux flowers
- Consider one longer garland along with smaller bouquets
- Hot glue or tacky glue
To make life easier, I have all the supplies (minus the glue and scissors) available in the Spring wreath craft kit
Time to put together your DIY wreath
- Wrap wreath form with ribbon, using glue to keep it in place
- Wrap long garland around the wreath. Tuck the ends into the folds of the ribbon and add glue to prevent lifting away from the form
- Cut down your single flowers or bouquets to single flowers, or flower with a small bit of greenery
- Tuck flowers into the folds of the ribbon
- Add hot glue to the inside of the folds to lock in place
- Hang up and enjoy
My 5 year old daughter absolutely loved this project. We were able to pick the flowers together, and she liked helping to tuck them into the ribbon. I handled the hot glue to keep her little fingers safe, but she felt completely engaged with this DIY wreath craft.
At only 9 inches, it’s smaller than a typical front door wreath, which made it a perfect fit for her bedroom. As soon as the glue cooled, she ran upstairs and put it above her bed.
I would love to see your creations! Be sure to share your finished DIY wreath with me on Instagram @happy.little.chaos, and tag with #HappyLittleChaos.
