I’m ready for spring.
Winter – thankfully – didn’t hit us hard this year in the North Country of NY, but I’m still ready for warm + sunny weather to once again appear.
To welcome the coming change of season, I wanted to adorn my door with something new. Typically when April hits, I change over the front porch for Spring andÂ kick-off-the-seasonÂ by hanging my beloved forsythia wreath. This year I wanted something new…
The past weeks have been incredibly busy with little spare time to create + DIY, but last weekend, I squeezed in a few quiet moments to make a new wreath.
Quick + Simple, ANDÂ pretty. Â AÂ new wreath to adorn my door…
I adore my yellow forsythia wreath – my go to for Spring – but I was wanting something lighter + brighter to give contrast to the apple green painted front door.
After food shopping last week, I popped into AC Moore and saw so manyÂ vibrant + colorful faux flowers for Spring. Â Their whole collection was on sale, so I picked up 3 bunches – about $15 total – in soft colors of white, greens, and a pop of pink.
I was excited to get started…
TUTORIAL FOR AÂ SIMPLE 10-MINUTE SPRING WREATH
I started offÂ with anÂ 18″ grapevine wreath that I had on hand – but you can find them at most craft stores (even Walmart has them) for around $5.
And my 3 bunches of Spring flowers.
Using snips, IÂ broke apartÂ the flower cluster and was left with individual stems, which gives the flexibility + freedom to place the stems where they look best toÂ give aÂ real-lookingÂ result.
Once all the stems are separated, start weaving them into the wreath. Â Secure with floral wire if needed.
In about 5-8 minutes, I was done and had a new wreath to adorn my door.
And here it is… hung and pretty!
Well unfortunately I think I jinxed myself. Â Spring was on it’s way, but over the coming days it’s supposed to feel like winter again. Â Ugh. Â Soon. Â I know it’ll be here soon.
For now, this new wreath will keep me goingÂ to send Spring vibes our way.
Want to make something similar for your door, here’s a quick recap of how to make it. Â I swear, it is simple. Â Anyone can tackle this in a cinch!
