3 DIY Spring Wreaths That Will Brighten Your Door
A Basket Wreath
Don’t need an entire entry makeover, but still looking for a change? Think beyond the typical circle and opt for this square door hanging instead.
- Line a small wire basket with sheet moss. Fill two-thirds of the basket with empty plastic water bottles to take up space without adding weight and also help with drainage.
- Top the bottles with a layer of soil.
- Arrange spring flowers and foliage in the soil. We used snapdragons, pansies, violas, dusty miller, maidenhair fern, string of pearls, and golden variegated sweet flag.
The Succulent Circle
An all-green wreath has never looked this cool.
- Begin with a living wreath form. We used a medium size with a 20-inch-diameter wire ring. First, line the form with damp sheet moss or sphagnum moss cloth. Then fill with potting soil.
- Enclose the soil with more moss on the backside. If applicable to your form, place the back of the form over the packed wreath, and close.
- On the front of the wreath, make small holes with scissors or needle-nose pliers. Insert clippings (we used succulents, ivy, ferns, and reindeer moss), and use U-shaped florist pins to secure the plants in place.
Make A Burlap Carrot Easter Wreath To Brighten Your Front Door
We teamed up with Certified Celebrator Brittany Young from Bowling Green, Kentucky to craft this bright, festive wreath to celebrate Easter. Made from a wire frame, burlap, and a few styrofoam cones, this Burlap Carrot Easter Wreath brings instant spring curb appeal to your home, and is a welcoming impression for guests. No glue needed!
The Flower Basket
Simply swap out the bouquet when you want a new look.
- Start off with a square grapevine wreath. Lightly coat it with a layer of white spray paint.
- Soak a small, round florist foam cage in water to make it damp. Use florist wire to affix the cage to the bottom center of the square form so it faces out (not up).
- Take a bouquet of flowers (here, we used white anemones), and cut each stem in half.
- Insert the top half of each flower stem (the part with the bloom) into the top of the florist foam cage. Insert the bottom half of each stem (just the stem) into the bottom part of the florist foam cage.
- Then disguise the remaining visible foam by pinning Spanish moss to it and covering it with ribbons tied in a colorful bow.
