I love love love spring! There is just something about spring that makes everything seem magical and wonderful. Maybe it’s the melting of the frozen tundra and return of colors, or maybe it’s the warmer temperatures. I can’t say for certain, but there is something in the air when spring comes around that is literally intoxicating.
When we lived in the south, I didn’t have quite the infatuation with spring that I do now. But now that we’re in the New England area, I celebrate the arrival of spring wholeheartedly! And what better way to welcome spring than with a beautiful new wreath?
I create a new wreath for our front door for every holiday and season, and spring is no exception! I know that sounds a little excessive, and you might be wondering where does she store all those wreaths, or how much money does that cost, but I am going to share a little secret with you… I use the exact same wreath form every time. I don’t need to store or purchase any wreath forms, because I have the only one I need right on my front door.
Basically, each new season or holiday I just switch out the accessories on the wreath and have a gorgeous, new, holiday-appropriate wreath for a fraction of what I’d have to spend to buy a new wreath each time. So I just have to come up with fun and creative ways to put everything on my wreath so that it will stay on there but at the same time will easily come off when I go to change out the accessories for the next holiday. You can check all the different versions of my wreath below.
Because St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are so close together this year, I decided to make my wreath more of a spring themed wreath than Easter specific so I’d get more than a week or two of use from it. Though I think the flowers and colors also look Easter appropriate!
Materials Needed to Create Interchangeable Spring Wreath
- Burlap-wrapped wreath (If your wreath isn’t already wrapped with burlap, you’ll need burlap fabric/ribbon, glue, and a wreath form.)
- Variety of spring flowers
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
Steps to Create Interchangeable Spring Wreath
1. If your wreath isn’t already wrapped with burlap, wrap it with your burlap ribbon or fabric cut into strips. (Check out my tutorial on how to cut burlap if you want to get nice, straight strips that won’t fray.) Glue the end of your burlap to the back of the wreath, and wrap the burlap around the wreath until the entire wreath is wrapped with burlap.
2. Arrange your flowers on your wreath until they look the way you want them to. I did a layering effect with my flowers all around the wreath so it looks nice and full (and colorful!).
3. Cut strips of floral wire and use it to secure the flowers to the wreath. I wrapped the floral wire all the way around the wreath and didn’t even have to try to hide it. With all the flowers covering it up, it’s not even noticeable. Twist the ends of the wire around to the back of the wreath, and push them underneath so they won’t scratch up the door (you can see the arrows in the picture).
4. Make a bow from your ribbon and secure it to the wreath with more floral wire. (If you need help making a bow, check out this tutorial.) I totally reused the bow I made for my winter wreath. I just can’t get enough of that beautiful blue chevron ribbon!
And that’s it! Hang up your beautiful interchangeable spring wreath and celebrate spring’s glorious arrival! I use these heavy duty magnetic hooks to hang my wreaths so there’s no damage to the door or weatherstripping.
This wreath was really super easy to make. Of all my interchangeable wreaths, I think this one was the fastest one I’ve ever done. Basically just arrange and secure some flowers and a bow, and you have a beautiful interchangeable spring wreath that can be used for weeks! And when it’s time for the next holiday or season, just unwrap the wire and flowers and reuse the wreath!
I really love these flowers, don’t you? If I’ve inspired you to make your own interchangeable wreath, I’d love to hear about it! Leave a note and let me know how your wreath turned out!
