Since our family is coming over for Easter, I want some springy, bright decorations to spruce up the otherwise neutral decor in my home. I’ve been thinking about making a spring wreath for a few weeks, and I thought it would be the perfect way to add a touch of color when welcoming guests into our home.
The hardest part about this project was selecting the perfect fake flowers at the craft store– there were so many to choose from that it probably took me almost a half an hour. Thank goodness for my wonderfully patient friend, Julia, who helped me select the flowers I used and complete the entire project.
- Twig wreath
- Various fake flowers and leaves on stems- I used a variety of 9 different kinds
- Wire cutter
- Fake butterflies- mine had little clips, but if yours don’t, you’ll need glue (or you could use little birds or chicks or bunnies if you want to be extra Easter festive)
- Wreath hanger (if you don’t want to pound a nail in your door)
Little tip- We laid a garbage bag on the carpet so we didn’t have to vacuum the floor…
Warning- a playful cat just might loooooove trying to help with this project too. Hobbes kept trying to steal our flowers.
Cut the flower clusters to break them into long, more separated stems.
Weave various flowers into the twig wreath, going either clockwise or counter clockwise. Allow some flowers to stick out from the sides to give it more volume. Julia and I sat on the floor, watched a tv show we discovered we love, and both weaved the flowers in.
After all of the leaves and flowers are weaved in, take a step back and adjust them as you see fit. We had a few sort of hollow spots that we had to fill in.
After we got all of the flowers adjusted, we clipped in the little fake butterflies.
Ta-da! Hang it up and enjoy!
