It’s finally warmed up which means that I need to replace my winter wreath with something more bright and cheery. For this week’s post I’ll walk through how I made an easy DIY wreath for my front door. I bought all of the supplies at Hobby Lobby and made the wreath in less than 30 minutes for under $20. It really livens up my front porch and is perfect for both spring and summer!
I just love making wreaths. It’s a ton of fun and saves me a lot of money since store bought wreaths are typically $40 or more. The sun beats on my front door most of the day so it doesn’t take long for the wreaths on my front door to fade. For this project you’ll just need a few supplies and all of them can be purchased at your local hobby store such as Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. This wreath uses a grapevine wreath for the base and 5 floral/greenery stems. I bought 2 greenery stems provide a full green base, two stems of white flowers (one large and one small) to brighten up the wreath and then one stem of small yellow flowers to add a pop of color.

Grapevine wreath base
Hot glue gun and glue
Cut the greenery stems into small manageable pieces and then evenly space them around the wreath base. Once you have them located in the positions that you like, use the wire or hot glue to attach them to the wreath base.
After you have the greenery attached, trim the floral stems just like you did with the greenery stems. The picture below shows the cut stems and the wreath with the greenery attached. I honestly considered stopping here because the green wreath looks so cute on it’s own. If you like the look of this, you may want to check out the easiest DIY wreath ever tutorial that I posted earlier this year.
Once the greenery is attached, it’s time to start adding flowers. I always like to start with my largest flowers first so that I can space them evenly to provide the fullness that I’m looking for. Attach the large flowers with hot glue and/or floral wire.
Evenly space and attach the smaller flowers just as you did in step 3. Since I had both white and yellow flowers to use, I started with just the white and then after those were attached I finished with the small yellow flowers.
And there you have it! This wreath cost me about $18 to make since the stems were on sale and I had a 50% off coupon for one item. In less than 30 minutes I was able to create a nice full wreath that really livens up my front porch! One of the next items on my DIY list is to make larger planters for my front porch. My little pots are way too small for the space. Check back in a few weeks for the tutorial on the planters 🙂
As always, please share your creations on social media and use #handmadeweekly. I’d love to see what it looks like on your door and the variations that everyone comes up with. With all of the floral stem choices at the hobby stores, the wreath possibilities are endless.
