It’s slowly feeling more and more like spring and I am so ready for it! We had beautiful warm and sunny weather last week and I spent the weekend pressure washing and cleaning up the front porch for spring. That also meant I was ready for a pretty spring wreath to put on my door so this is what I created!
It all started when I saw this wreath at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago.
I love the colors and simple look of it but the price was more than I wanted to pay. So I posted it in my Instagram stories and did a poll to see if you wanted to see if I could recreate it for less.
So this is what I picked up at Hobby Lobby to make the wreath. Make sure to do it on a week that floral stems are on sale for 50% which is every other week.
I ended up using 4 of these stems so $6.00.
I reused a wreath form I had on hand but you’ll need one of these if you don’t already have one.
So here was my supplies once I was at home. Since I had the grapevine wreath form already it only cost me just $13 to make this wreath –even less than half of the $28 wreath at Hobby Lobby.
I used the floral wire cutters to cut stems off of the greenery and then I just tuck it into the grapevine wreath. You can secure with floral wire if you want but I find I can get it pretty secure just tucking it in and then it makes it easy to remove when I want to update or change up the wreath later.
Once the green leaf stems were all added, I cut and tucked the white flowy stems into the wreath as well. I could have made them drape more like the inspiration picture from Hobby Lobby and I may go back and do that but I also like the way this looks too.
I did a quick time-lapse video of the wreath-making process posted on my Instagram reels here.
But here’s how it turned out!
The best part of making your own wreaths is you can customize them to make them look however you want. Add a ribbon to hang it by, add a bow, and when I get my spring bin out I may hang a wood plaque that says “welcome spring” in the middle of it.
I love the early spring look it gives! So much greenery sprouting from the trees and bushes right now and lots of white blooms in the Bradford Pear trees everywhere.
I’ll be adding ferns or pots filled with flowers on either side of the door and reveal my whole spring front porch soon – just waiting for this week’s cooler weather to pass and some good sales on plants!
But for now I am loving this freshly cleaned porch and pretty spring wreath!
Is it starting to feel like spring where you are? First day of spring is officially later this week!
