After a long rainy or snowy winter everyone is ready to cheer up their homes a little. This easy DIY Spring Wreath is just what you need to bring Spring indoors, even if the weather outside isn’t quite ready to cooperating.
As I started writing this post it was dreary and rainy so making my diy spring wreath came at just the right time. Our home office seems to be the brightest spot in the house this time of year, even though in deep winter no sun actually hits our house. So instead of making it a front door wreath it’s going to stay displayed on the handles of the murphy bed so I can enjoy it all day long. And maybe in a few weeks I’ll move it to the front door.
My blogging does a themed challenge every few months and the theme this round is anything spring. I was excited because I’d already made my wreath and I felt ahead of my normal procrastinating self. Look for the linkups to their projects below and check out all of their Spring Inspirations.
It’s very easy to make your own DIY Spring Wreath so let me walk you through the steps I used to mine mine. Maybe instead of DIY we should start calling it MYO, make your own 🙂 Ok, that’ll never catch on.

Supplies for Your DIY Spring Wreath
- 1 Roll 25 yd Paper Twist Ribbon
- or 25 yd white 5/8″ ribbon in a color you like
- 1 12” Foam Wreath Form
- 1 – 2 bunches of Pink and Burgundy Silk Tulips (I got mine at Walmart for $0.97 a bunch)
- Glue Gun
- Wire cutters
- White Craft Paint (if your wreath form isn’t white)
- 1″ Foam Paint Brush
Let’s make a DIY Spring Wreath:
- Start by painting your foam wreath form with the white craft paint, if your it isn’t already white. Or use whatever color paint that matches the paper twist or 5/8″ ribbon you selected. I got my paper twist at a garage sale so I’m not entirely sure you can get it in white in the 25 yard rolls any longer.
- You could also use spray paint but the craft paint dries so much faster. And you can use craft paint indoors without the mess or worry of fumes.
- While the paint is drying cut the flower heads off the stems with wire cutters. I ended up cutting mine a bit shorter during assembly.
- When the paint is dry start wrapping your wreath form with the paper twist or ribbon.
- Dab some hot glue on the wreath form to get started and hold the paper twist in place until the glue sets.
- Keep wrapping and pushing the paper twist together.
- Hot glue a spot every few inches to help keep it together while you wrap.
- When it’s all wrapped cut the paper twist and glue it where you started.
Now it’s time for the flowers. I bought two bunches of flowers but decided that I only needed one. As I mentioned before I had to snip the stems a bit shorter.
- Take the leaves off the stem and trim shorter if needed.
- Attach the flowers with hot glue to the wreath randomly or in a pattern you love.
- Cut apart and attach a few of the green leaves for more contrast and dimension.
To hang your new DIY spring wreath use a length of the paper twist or ribbon and make a simple slip knot so you can hang it from a wreath hanger, a handle or even a simple nail.
Checkout the cute video I made of the entire process to see how easy it really is to make your own spring wreath.
I love how this turned out! The simplicity of the white wreath with texture and interest from the paper twist is lovely. And the bright pop of Spring flowers makes it such a cheery addition to your home decor 🙂
