The spring fever bomb has officially detonated. Here, in the Midwest, we never know what March can bring. One day a snow storm while the next day is a heat wave. For now, my kids are partying naked on the swing set. Ok, well maybe partially naked. As for me, I’ve seen crocuses and daffodils popping up which makes me crave anything with flowers. Meanwhile, my house still reeks of everything winter. We still have Valentine’s Day hearts hanging all over the walls. It’s definitely time for a spring decoration overhaul! In general, I’m not a wreath person but I simply fell in love with making this delightful and colorful spring wreath.
This post is part of a spring craft blog hop hosted by Craft, Create, Calm. I’m excited to share this idea among so many other great bloggers.
If you’re scanning through this post thinking, “I can’t possibly make something like this, ” trust me, you can! This is a super simple DIY spring wreath project that doesn’t need too many fancy tools or tricks.
- Fabric Remnant (find a great bright pattern)
- Fake Flower Stem With Spring Blooms
- Flower Wire
- Glue Gun
- Wooden Beads and Pony Beads
- Homemade Yarn Pom Poms (can substitute with store bought pom poms)
DIY Spring Wreath| Process
1. Take the floral stem and form it into a circle. Tie together using floral wire.
2. Cut 3 or 4 strips of fabric into 1/4″ strips.
3. Dab a dot of hot glue on the end of a fabric strip. Then adhere to the floral wreath. Begin wrapping fabric around the wreath. Hot glue the end of the fabric to the floral wreath. Keep repeating until the whole spring wreath is covered in fabric.
4. Hot glue pom poms, beads, or any other fun notions you have laying around. There are no rules, make it fun and unique!
5. Cut six 1/2″ strips of fabric and tie them to the wreath. Then cut three strips of satin ribbon and tie them to the wreath.
This was a wonderful little project for my daughter and me, to make together. She loved wrapping the fabric around the floral stem and telling me where to glue the pom poms. Her little fingers were also capable of threading big wooden beads on the fabric scraps.
