How to Make These Simple Spring Mini-Wreaths in No Time
This project is so easy and quick. Each wreath it took me about 15 minutes to put together, the hardest part was picking up the materials. Make these wreaths to give your home that spring boost!
What You Need To Get Started on Your Wreaths
There aren’t many materials needed to put these beautiful spring mini-wreaths together. The best part is that, the entire project cost me only $7 for both wreaths! I did have the jute cord on hand, and I already owned a hot glue gun. If you don’t own those, that can add into the cost of your project.
- Two 8 in Grape Vine Wreaths – These can be purchased online or at a local craft store. I snagged them at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.
- 2-3 Sprigs of Greenery – These were also on sale for a deep discount, I picked up three different kinds of greenery to add interest to the wreath.
- 2 Types of Flower – I wasn’t able to get the flowers on sale, but because I didn’t need many flowers, I chose the smaller stemmed flowers for $.99 each.
- Jute Cord – This can also be ordered online or found at a craft store. If you are interested in doing crafts, it’s always smart to get the large spool of jute cord. I use this stuff a lot.
- Hot Glue Gun – Similar to the jute cord, these can be found online or at the craft store. I find them useful for all types of things so I encourage you to purchase one!
- Scissors – You’ll need these to cut the greenery, jute cord and flowers.
Arranging the Greenery on the Spring Mini-Wreath
The first step to putting your wreath together is cutting down the stems of the greenery and arranging it in a pleasing way. I like to put 2-3 different types of greenery going in one direction, and then placing another bunch of 2-3 different types of greenery going in the opposite direction.
The idea is that you want the stems to meet where the flowers will be placed. For this wreath, we are only adding foliage to one side of the wreath. This gives it a simple, understated style.
Once you have your greenery arranged how you like and going in the direction that you desire, tie it onto the grapevine wreath with the jute cord. You will do this with both bunches of greenery going in the opposite direction.
Adding the Flowers to The Wreath
Once your greenery has been placed and tied to the wreath, gather 1-3 flowers of your choosing and arrange them on the wreath. Play around with the flowers until you find an arrangement that looks best to you.
Use your hot glue gun, place a generous amount of glue onto the bottom of you flower and glue the flower right where both stems of the greenery meet. Be sure to glue your flowers exactly how you arranged them. The flowers should fill in the gap between your greenery and give you a full, balanced look.
Finishing Your Spring Mini-Wreath
Use a piece of jute cord (or ribbon if you so desire) and tie a large loop from the grapevine wreath. You’re done! Now hang the wreath in front of a cabinet or on an upcycled window – like I did in the picture.
For the wreath I created, I used white, purple and green so that it would easily transition from winter to spring. I also went with more neutral colors so that it matched any additional décor I put up throughout the spring season.
When shopping for supplies, I also looked at what was on sale first, before looking for any additional products. Many times the best crafts can be created from things you find on clearance. Created beautiful decor does not need to be expensive.
