DIY Sage and Blush Spring Wreath

A step-by-step tutorial for making a spring wreath from scratch using artificial sage greenery and blush flowers for soft, romantic style.

I hope you won’t judge me for this and it’s taken me a while to come to terms with this trait in my personality, but I can’t help it. I’ve realized…

I’m kind of a wreath snob.

I know. I’m totally ashamed. I’ll decorate our house with recycled bottles bound for the trash. I’ll swoop in for a piece of furniture that would get passed up at any yard sale. I will fill our house with IKEA everything and pretend it’s designer in a heartbeat.

But I’m the pickiest person alive about the wreaths we hang on our front door.

While I was cruising through the aisles at Michael’s last week, I noticed all of their faux florals were 50% off and I couldn’t help myself. I scooped up every bashful and blush flower that crossed my path because apparently pink is my signature color this spring. (Steel Magnolias, anyone?)

So I thought I’d share how you can make your own DIY spring wreath, if you’re kind of a snob about it like I am.

You can find a bunch more inspiration at the end of this post for The Happy Housie’s Seasonal Simplicity Wreath Bloghop, if “bashful and blush” isn’t your thing.

The Steps:

1. I started with the lamb’s ear first by snipping them into individual stems and placing them evenly around the wreath frame. And then attached them with florist wire and tape.

2. Once the lamb’s ear was in place, I took apart the white berry bushes by snipping individual stems and attaching them with more wire and tape between the lamb’s ear stems on the wreath form.

3. Then, I placed the blush flowers where I wanted them, pulled the stems through the wire form and attached them with more wire on the backside of the wreath.

This is actually the first wreath I’ve ever made totally from scratch, and I think I’m ready to make more because this one was WAY more fun than I thought it would be. I’m not exactly the crafty type (more of the furniture painting / home improving type), but I can get on board with this new little hobby.

  1. Lauren,
    This is stunning!
    Love all the ‘blush’ hues!
    Lambs ear and ranunculus. . .now you’re speaking my language!
    (wink! wink!)
    Thank you for inspiring with this lovely sage and blush Spring wreath!
    Pat

  2. Your wreath is so pretty! Love the blush flowers- they almost look vintage. And the way you put the larger flowers off center is charming. You’ve inspired me to try my hand at wreath making!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I love your wreath – it’s so beautiful and I love the soft colors. It really reminds me of a wedding. 😀 You made this project look so easy and now I want to make one. Artificial flowers have come a long way!

  4. Absolutely beautiful, Lauren! Hard to believe you haven’t been making wreaths forever. Love the colors and the way you placed the flowers. I’m inspired—off to Michael’s and hoping they still have some blush floral stems left!

  5. Wreath is beautiful! I was looking thru the items linked and you might want to take a look. Unless this wreath cost you over 500.00 to make. ? Im thinking is was very budget friendly.

    1. Haha! So about that… Michael’s only allows you to order online in bulk which is a major bummer. But I wanted to link the exact items I used so that when people shop in stores in person, they’ll know what to get. I definitely don’t recommend spending that much money unless you plan on making 10 wreaths. Haha! Big ol’ nope!

  6. Ha ha! When I saw the word “Blush” in the title I knew there was a “Steal Magnolias” reference coming. Nicely done! Oh, and the wreath is pretty awesome or awesomely pretty, too! 🙂

    1. Our door has a peg already on it, so we just hang it from there. It was there when we moved in and we just never removed it because it comes in handy. 🙂
