Hello friends! Happy Spring! Since today is the first day of spring, I thought I’d show you how to spruce up your spring wreath. I just pulled out all my Spring/Easter decor and found the wreath I made last year was falling apart. As you know, wreaths can be expensive, so I decided I would give my wreath a little makeover with supplies I had around the house. I wanted something bright and fun, so I added a spring banner and flowers to spruce it up. Here’s what you’ll need to get started.
Supplies for a Spring Wreath:
- Wreath (I spray painted mine white and added cherry blossoms flowers with hot glue last year)
- One page ripped from an old book
- Embellishment punch (you could cut out your own shapes as well)
- Twine or ribbon
- Glue dots
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Hot glue
- Fabric flowers (found at Hobby Lobby)
Bunting is such a fun/cheap addition to add to your wreath for any holiday. To make this one, you’ll need one page from an old book. I cut (6) squares out of the page (2×2.5 in) with my paper cutter. Then I cut the points off to create a little flag banner.
Next I punched out several butterflies and glued them to the center of the flags. The words “Spring” or flowers would be cute as centers too! Once my butterflies were glued on, I hot glued twine to the back of the flags. Then I hot glued the twine to the back of my wreath to hold up my bunting.
Now go find an old wreath and give it a little Spring makeover ;)
