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.
(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)
- Wire wreath form (I used a 24″)
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Floral cutters (This little kit does the job for all of it.)
- Artificial lamb’s ear stem
- Artificial lamb’s ear bush
- Artificial white berry bush
- Artificial peony stem
- Artificial dahlia stem (similar)
- Artificial ranunculus stem
- Artificial garden rose bush
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.
Easy and done in under an hour!
And now our wreath is hanging out on our front door hoping spring will show up soon.
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.
Really sage and blush (and “bashful”) anything has my heart to begin with.
Now to get the front porch swept and the rest of this little stoop in spring shape and we’ll be in business.
