I love to think I’m crafty, but I’m really not.  For one, I am super cheap!  Second, I walk around the craft store and I change my mind about a project twenty times and get frustrated.  

I wanted a new wreath for the front door and I’m always shocked at how expensive they are to buy, so I headed to the local craft store to get the materials to make my own, inexpensive one.  I’m attempting a DIY spring wreath!

I live in North Carolina and it’s the warmest I’ve ever remembered it being in February.  Everyone has spring fever.  When I go on my walks around the neighborhood I’m always looking at how people decorate their houses, so I went having a few ideas in my head.

Easy DIY Spring Wreath with Initial

I went straight to the wooden initials.  I live in the south and they’re very popular around here.  They’re also inexpensive.  I picked a medium size that would fit perfectly with a wreath for the front door.

 I located the grapevine wreaths and they have a lot of different sizes.

 Last, I headed to the flower section and spent most of my time there.  I have a dark blue door and wanted something that would stand out against it, so I chose bright yellow flowers that were a little fuller and would show up from the street.

Ok- on to the wreath making.

Materials needed for DIY spring wreath

Step 1–  I spray painted my initial white with spray paint I had in my garage.

Step 2–  While that was drying I headed inside to work on the wreath.  I warmed up my glue gun and got out my 2 flower stems I purchased.  The stems are almost the exact color of the wreath so I just weaved it to secure it.  

I only hot glued 3 stems down to get them how I liked it.  Depending on what kind of flowers you get you may need a little more glue.  See, you can’t even see the stems from the flowers.  It matches great!

Step 3–  I brought in the initial and I felt something was missing.  It was a little plain, I jazzed it up with putting a chevron pattern on it.  I had the stencil from a previous project, but ran out to get a little bottle of yellow paint.  

If you don’t have a stencil you can tape off the chevron pattern using painter’s tape or do a pattern freehand (stripes, circles, or swirls).  My son stopped by and did most of my painting for me.

Step 4– After the paint dries, add the initial.  I just placed it where I wanted it and started hot gluing.  Hold it down a few seconds for the glue and initial to bond well with the wreath.   I used 1 glue stick for the whole project.
