I like to change up my home decor with the seasons. I don’t like to store a lot of items, but things that can hang on my walls or cheer up a dark space are a winner. I was trying to find a great spring wreath, BUT I wasn’t able to find one that wasn’t tied to a holiday (St. Patrick’s Day or Easter). So, I decided to create one!
This one is a little non traditional. However, it’s whimsical, and not like anything I’ve seen at the stores. It didn’t take long to make and I’m very pleased with the outcome!
Okay, here’s what I used:
Foam wreath form (about 8 and a half inches wide). I purchased on Amazon for about $6.
Lion Brand Fur Yarn in lime green. I purchased on Amazon as well for about $3 a skein. I could have used one skein if I didn’t want the “grass” to seem as thick. I did have a little leftover that I put away for another project on another day.
Ribbon in your choice of color. I happened to have pink on hand.
The adornments are completely optional and this is where you can REALLY customize it. I got mine on Etsy.
The mini banner is actually a cake topper. It’s sold in a few colors. I love the pink. It’s from Backyard Prims on Etsy.
The picks are my favorite part. I got them in butterflies and chalkboard flags from ApplesModernArt on Etsy. She sells some awesome party and craft supplies. Warning, you’re going to want it all!
The butterfly picks come in a few colors and they fold out so they are 3D and really add dimension to the wreath. The chalkboard flags are perfect for adding any saying you want. I used a silver Sharpie marker to write “Welcome Spring!)
I started by wrapping the yard around the wreath form. I held the first piece in place with a tiny pin and then wrapped and wrapped and wrapped. It took me about 30 minutes. I tied the ends down on the back.
Because the wreath form is foam it was easy to put the picks in. I tied on the banner and ribbon and was ready to go. Overall, this cost about $20 and took less than an hour to make.
This would make a great hostess gift or spring break project! It’s also very light weight so you don’t need to worry about finding a special type of hook for hanging.
