Semi-DIY Floral Spring Wreath
I love ushering in the new season by changing up the home decor. It really helps to set your mood to the transition that's happening with the weather. After the miserably cold winter we just had, I was in a rush to take down our winter decor and get some color and floral into our lives again. I practically ran to Michael's as soon as the temperature came above freezing.
I really love creating new wreaths for our door because it reminds me of the new season, even if the weather hasn't quite caught up! And as easy as it would be to just buy the wreaths, usually I have an idea in mind and its hard to find one that fits what I'm looking for as well as my budget!
For this spring, I wanted a pretty floral wreath with a very natural feel, a lot of green and a lot of flowers. But I particularly wanted a lot of pinks because we recently painted our door this dark fuchsia color. So I wanted lot of white flowers along with some pinks to compliment the color.
I found the perfect mixed green wreath to use as my base. (Link below to a similar wreath from Micheal's if you're interested).

I say base, but its actually a beautiful wreath on its own. It could easily have been hung up just like that! But like I do with most things, I always want to put my own touch to it. So I picked up bunches of craft flowers in varying shades of pinks and set to work!
How to Create this Spring Floral Wreath
Actually this floral wreath was very simple to do.
- Since the base was already a finished product, I did not have to worry about getting a frame and covering it with the greenery.
- I snipped the flowers from their bunch. So I was only working with individual flowers on their stems.
- I arranged the flowers in a color scheme. Here I was looking for an ombre effect, or gradually blending the dark pinks to the lighter pinks and settling on the whites.
- Then I just put my hot glue to work, sticking the flowers into the base and gluing them in place.
- Once all of the flowers were arranged, I just added some twine to the back of the wreath and it was ready for the door!
I love it so much I think I just may keep it for summer as well!
