Spring Wreath Tutorial {Frugal and Fast!}



I recently made a pretty spring wreath for our front door!  I have been soooo ready for spring, and in the last two days, the weather has finally turned warm!  It's in the upper-60's and sunny!

This wreath was very easy to make and only cost me $14.  It's really big and makes quite a statement on our front door!  We're getting a new front door soon, so I took an indoor picture.

To make one, you will need:
-1 grapevine wreath (I got mine at Michael's and used a coupon, so it was around $2)
-6 stems of artificial hot pink parrot tulips (from the Dollar Tree, so $6)
-4 stems of artificial yellow alstroemeria (ditto, $4)
-2 stems of grassy stems with fuzzy green balls (ditto, $2)
-ribbon for hanging (I had this on hand, but you can get it at the Dollar Tree too)
-wire cutters or scissors

To assemble your wreath:
-Cut all floral stems apart at the base, so that each individual flower is separate.
-Lay out the flowers on the floor (or table) the way you might like to place them on the wreath, just to get an idea of spacing.
-Start poking flower stems into the wreath, going around the wreath in one direction with each new stem overlapping the previous one.
-Continue adding flower stems, alternating among types, until you reach the beginning.
-Tuck the last stems under the first flowers.
-Add additional flowers anywhere needed to fill in "holes."
-Loop some ribbon around the back to create a hanger for the wreath.
-If needed, you can secure the flowers with wire or hot glue, but mine seemed secure enough without doing that.

If you make a wreath like this, send me a picture!  I'd love to see it!
