Spring Wreath How To

Hey there! And welcome to our very first How To’s Day linky party!

The first project we thought we’d share is how we made an easy-breezy Spring wreath for our dining room. With March right around the corner, it was high time we replaced the evergreen one we’ve had hanging in there since Christmas.

It was super simple to make, and it was really fun deciding which colors and embellishments we wanted to use. We started with an inexpensive foam wreath form, and some chunky, off-white-colored yarn…

Our wreath form measures 14 inches in diameter, so it did take a little while to completely cover it. (Note: This part will go much faster if you have a second set of hands to help.)

We used hot glue to secure the beginning and end of the yarn, and after that, it was all about adding the embellishments…

(The flowers are actually hair barrettes!)

First up- a little twig we found in our backyard. We wrapped it with some fuzzy, moss green-colored yarn, and then hot glued it onto the wreath…

After that, we glued on some buttons, and added a spiral of twine to the center of the largest flower. Lastly, we attached some green and white striped ribbon to the top of the wreath so we could hang it on our screen door.

And there ya have it! A fast & fun, Spring wreath how-to!

    What a great collection of posts, I’m off to visit a few!

    I love your wreath – especially the twine center of the flower, it’s little touches like that which really make something special!

    I would love to see a tutorial on how you do the presto changos in Photoshop. I am experienced photoshopper and I can’t figure it out! Thanks for hosting this – lots of insopiration here.

    I think you have an endless supply of inspiration Layla!! You are just so stinkin creative and cute. I love this idea. I can not WAIT for spring! (We just got snow today here in the Pac. NW… what’s UP with that??) I’m ready for green and blooming things… this wreath fits the bill.

    Blessings sweet girl!

    (PS- I downloaded and printed that “Gathering place” photo for my new (old) house, and I can’t wait to hang it and enjoy it! Just wanted to share!!)

    I love the wreathe and I love the how to party! I went out to Hobby Lobby immediately to try and be crafty for the first time ever. I mean seriously, I didn’t even own a hot glue gun!!! (I’m new to all this decorating and blogs and everything, I mean I just discovered all this stuff about a week ago) So anyways, my wreath is about halfway done and it looks adorable and my husband is super proud of me and is really excited about me making our home an even more beautiful place. Thanks to all of you who post your beautiful homes and projects and give me inspiration!!! :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Seriously, that final pic looks like a magazine shot. I love that view! I want a wood screen door – can hear it in my memories!

  8. says

    I don’t know how your house looks like a magazine. My wife and I have been trying to copy you for over a year and we still are no where near “there”. Awesome!

    Thanks so much for the linky party. It’s my first one! I love to read how to’s.

    I love that magazine flippy thing on your page. I need to get one of those. Hugs…
