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.

A spring wreath adds a little freshness to your home. This one has eucalyptus branches, sprigs of dried flowers, and buds on the front. Add the wreath to your front door or hang it on a wall indoors.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day. How is the weather where you are?

Here?

It’s Texas.

If you don’t like the weather? Just blink and it changes.

It was hailing yesterday and tomorrow it’s 80 and this weekend it’s supposed to be freezing.

The kind of weekend 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 I’m bringing a little spring along with some sunshine today.

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.

supplies (everything is linked for you if you don’t have all this in your craft room)

18″ grapevine wreath

eucalyptus stems

pink flower stems like these and these and these

wire 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 like this one.

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.

    Beautiful! Thanks for the step by step directions:)! Weather here is supposed to be in the 80's with 45 mile wind gusts. We are heading to low 70's for the weekend with close to freezing temperatures at night. The weather forecast looks like a rollercoaster.

    KariAnne, your wreath is so pretty -- just like you are! It looks beautiful on your door! Enjoy! I have just made a Spring basket with flowers for our front door despite the fact that winter still wants to hang around! We are getting more snow tonight! Have a great day!

    I have moved from our 82-acre farm (with cattle) to our 10-acre place. I am unboxing all of our things from living in a 5-bedroom house with a full basement for storage(3000+ square footage) and crafting to a 1728 square footage place. I am beyond tired, but am keeping up with the unboxing!!! I did not know we had this much stuff!!! Lol My daughter has been the real trouper and helped soooo much in cleaning and unpacking!!! I will get it all done, but boy, is it making me weary. The movers said our stuff was heavy!!! Lol We have well-built furniture, what can I say??? Well, just wanted you all to know that you need to purge, purge, purge before moving 21+ years of accumulated items!!! Lol I am 68 years old and my husband is 69 and we are so beat!!! God has been good to us and provided us with beautiful spring weather though!!!
