Looking for a super simple DIY spring wreath idea for your front door? Here’s a project that will take you from spring until summer.

How is the weather where you are?

Here?

It’s foggy with extra fog on top.

The kind of day that makes you want to pull the covers up over your head and go back to bed.

Spring with its bright sunshine and floating clouds and chirping crickets and mornings that make you want to leap out of bed seems like an eternity away.

So today I’m bringing a little spring along with me on this cold foggy day.

It’s a DIY spring wreath that I made with stems of pink flowers and eucalyptus that will take you literally 15 minutes to put together.

Want to join me?

Oh, good.

I’m saving you a seat at the table.

DIY spring wreath made from eucalyptus and flowers

supplies:

grapevine wreath

eucalyptus

pink flower stems

branches

hot glue

Step 1: start with a grapevine wreath

You can find these in any craft store or your craft closet or at yard sales this spring.

For this craft, I used an 18″ wreath to start with.

They come in lighter and darker grapevine and I chose the darker brown.

Step 2: choose your florals

I chose eucalyptus and three different stems of pink flowers.

A smaller pink flower.

A medium pink flower.

And a larger pink flower.

Step 3: chose branches

You can find these in the dried floral section of the craft store.

This is the secret ingredient that takes the wreath to the next level.

Make sure the branches are smaller and have forks in them.

Step 4: add the first layer of eucalyptus

Cut smaller pieces of eucalyptus and layer them on the wreath.

These pieces are between 4″ to 5″ long.

They are directly hot glued onto the wreath.

Start in a counter-clockwise direction and layer in the pieces of eucalyptus with hot glue until you have a base layer as shown.

Step 5: add the flowers

You don’t need a ton of flowers for this wreath.

Just use 2-3 stems of each one.

Cut smaller pieces of the floral stems and layer them on the wreath.

These pieces are between 4″ to 5″ long.

They are directly hot glued onto the wreath.

Step 6: add the branches

Lastly, add the branches to the wreath.

Cut smaller pieces of the branch and layer them on the wreath. You can see the ones I found here.

These pieces are between 6″-8″ long.

Hot glue the branches directly onto the wreath.

Here’s my little bit of spring that will take you from now until summer starts peeking through the clouds.

It makes me so happy that it seems like the fog is lifting.

May your day be full of sunshine and a little bit of spring.

PS This post was delayed a little bit today because I just started water aerobics this morning.

More on that later—but just between us—IT WAS AMAZING.

PPS Here’s another fun spring project here and here.

    So cheery! I need to make two of these for my entry. It is overcast and cold where I live...far from spring, but this wreath makes a girl dream! Thanks for sharing, and yeah for the water aerobics!!

    Thanks for the tip and link for the hog huck branches. I'd never heard of them, but they provide exactly the look I like in my floral projects. Good luck with the water aerobics. The woman who teaches an exercise class I attend on Tuesdays here in my apartment building also teaches this at our local rec centers and has been trying to get me to sign up. I have to say at my age I just can't see myself in a swim suit in public these days. Let me know how your are getting along. It might encourage me!

    Love this wreath! a few years ago I took a water aerobics class and it was the funnest exercise I've ever done. The class was mostly older ladies like me and I laughed and had so much fun. Plus if you get hot you can just splash yourself off. I felt so uplifted afterwards!

    I love the wreath! This may be my next project! Water aerobics sounds fun and a great work-out, but I haven't been in a bathing suit in over 15 years..

    Just when we need a breath of spring I knew I could count on you Karianne. Today was rainy and cool here so it was perfect for planning a revamp our small guestroom, do some grocery shopping and then binge on The Crown with a hot cup of tea and a warm scone. Had some crocus blooming in my garden so spring must be around the corner๐Ÿ˜Š

    This wreath looks absolutely adorable, I will have to give it a try. Also, I have always wanted to try water aerobics, it sounds super fun! Too bad they don't really have pools up here in the frigid Northwest. You'll just have to enjoy it for the both of us. :)

    Sure is a beautiful piece of Springtime. Foggy here this morning, too. I want sunshine, blue skies and butterflies. xo SuZeQ

    Oh my gosh, KariAnne! That wreath is so pretty! Just the sort I'd expect to see hanging from your door. Your creativity and love of beauty is shining through for sure.

    Beautiful inspiring wreath and makes me want to get at it!! But ... one little snag, I donโ€™t want my front door to get scraped up. What do you do to prevent that from happening? ๐Ÿค”I always had wreaths on my last door, but now with this new door Iโ€™m hesitant. Maybe felt on the back of the wreath would work and what kind of wreath attachment? Thanks for any tips!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    I love this wreath! We have fog with fog on the side and fog on top for most of the winter and early spring where I live and the fog is broken only by rain ๐Ÿ˜†. I think I need to bring some spring into my life today. I think a bright cheerful wreath might show up on my front door this afternoon and I think you might be the cause of that! ๐Ÿค—
