Simple Spring Wreath Tutorial

Simple Spring Twig Wreath DIY Tutorial. Click the picture to view the tutorial.One craft that I always wanted to do once I moved into my own home was to make a wreath. Well, I’ve made several over this past year and they are so much fun I decided I should share my Simple Spring Wreath Tutorial!

See my wreath on the DIY Spring-Themed Wall Collage post.

There are so many different types of wreaths you can make and so many different ways to make them, but my favorite at the moment is the twig wreath. This will just be a generic tutorial. I encourage you to play around with different colors and types of flowers and additional decorations.

What You Need

  • Twig wreath, any size
  • Fabric flowers of various sizes in coordinating colors
  • Accent pieces (butterflies, birds, beads, bolder flowers)
  • Hot glue
  • Wire cutters
  • Something to hang the wreath (I attached a ribbon then hung it with a metal hook, but you can also use a wreath hook)

Directions

1. Set out the bare twig wreath and make a plan. Get a rough idea of where you will be placing your flowers. I tend to clump all my flowers to one side taking up about half of the wreath with fewer flowers and decorations on the ends.

2. Usually I would recommend starting with your biggest flowers, but you can also do a base layer of smaller flowers first then add more on top for accents. Using wire cutters, cut off the part of the flower you want visible, leaving approx. 1 or 2 inches of stem then hot glue into place on the wreath.

3. Glue on some of the flower’s leaves to give some more color and depth. Add a flower on top if a hole is showing in the leaf (you can stick the stem through the hole and glue both down.)

4. Come back in and glue on the accent flowers. These can be a few larger flowers on top of the patch of small flowers or smaller flowers in between bigger flowers. Use varying sizes, shapes, coordinating colors, textures, and types to make your piece more interesting.

5. Add your accent pieces. I used a butterfly on mine, but you can get creative.

6. If desired, add some more accents around the remaining bare twig wreath. I added fabric flower petals from small flowers I’d removed from the stems. You could also use moss, beads, gems, or glitter!
