Looking for an easy DIY Spring wreath? Spring is finally here and Easter has almost passed, so it was time to think about a spring wreath that wasn’t Easter themed. This DIY Hello Spring wreath was easy to make and only cost about $10!
I’m a novice wreath maker. This is actually my first wreath project! Can you tell? I hope not! The supplies were cheap and I ended up spending less than $10. I got the grapevine wreath for $2.50 on half off day at my local Community Aid. The flowers came from Dollar Tree. The Hello sign and paint came from Hobby Lobby. I used a 40% off on the sign and the paint was on clearance! Even if you don’t find the materials quite as cheap as I did, it’s definitely still under $20 ($15 if you’re a smart shopper and use your coupons!).
Materials to make DIY Hello Spring Wreath
- grapevine wreath
- hello sign
- artificial flowers of your choice
- ivory paint
- paint sponge
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- floral wire (optional)
- wire cutters
- varnish (optional)
Directions to make DIY Hello Spring Wreath
Paint the home sign with paint sponge and set aside to dry. Make sure you paint the sides, top, and bottom. The back can be skipped. I did two coats total, but one would have worked. If you are worried about weather affecting it, you can add a varnish to finish it.
Cut the flowers from the bunch, leaving an inch or so of stem. You need to be able to add hot glue and push the stem halfway (at least) through the wreath.
Wrap leaves or foliage together wire floral wire so you can glue it as one piece if you are adding it in a bunch as I did on the ends.
Arrange the flowers ahead of time until you get them how you like them. I started with the foliage on the ends, then added the 3 large lilies. Next, I added the medium-sized flowers (peonies and roses), and finished with extra greens and small white flowers to fill it in more.
Once you are happy with how it looks, add hot glue to the ends and glue it into place.
Add your dried hello sign. I did mine at a slight angle and liberally applied hot glue under the “h” and “o”. I attached the second “l” to the top of the wreath for a little more support.
Not bad for a first try, eh? I’d love to see what combinations you come up with for your DIY Hello Spring Wreath! Tag me in photos or add them in the comments. Don’t forget to check out my other home decor DIYs!
