Hello friends! I am kicking off spring (although the ground has been covered off and on again with snow, lol) with a DIY whimsical wreath! I’ve joined up again with Krista at The Happy Housie to share these fun seasonal ideas as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Series. Clearly, spring is on my mind so there was no twisting my arm to share a wreath all dressed up for the upcoming season.

This is truly a simple project and is perfect for a door, fireplace or wall in your home. When I was trying to decide how I wanted to construct it, I happened to be shopping at Michaels Craft Store. I was inspired by all their faux florals and wreaths they had there! I chose to make mine with certain colors and foliage which makes it a fun customizable craft to do.

Here is how you can make this lush whimsical wreath too…

The wreath with a hot glue un, and the greenery ready to go on the counter.

  • A grapevine wreath, any will do… but I chose the fanned branch style and it makes adhering all the florals pretty easy.
  • Faux florals and or branches, leaves, etc…
  • Wire snips
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Floral wire (I didn’t use this, but it may be helpful if needed in addition to the glue).

Green foliage on the table, laid out.

First carefully snip the florals. I kept the woodland ferns and foliage differing lengths, but also made sure to have the first layer of greenery be mostly long enough to cover the grapevines.

Laying the green branches out in a clockwise direction on the table.

Lay out the branches following the movement of the wreath, clockwise. Get a layout ready and done before you permanently glue as this will give you a chance to make any necessary changes. Apply glue to the back side of branches and stems. You will make to sure each piece is nice and adhered, therefore it will require quite a bit of glue ;)…

Gluing the greenery together to form the wreath.

As shown above, you can work by gluing sections with some of the longer pieces. Gluing the base first, adhering and then work to the top.

Putting the leaves on the wreath.

Again, always lay out the layers before gluing so you can see how you want it to flow. Then do another round of gluing.

The ferns glued onto the wreath.

Finish off with shorter stems and insert bulkier ferns, florals etc… I wanted to have some lovely fresh succulents scattered throughout, so that was my last step for the entire process.

And there you have it! I promptly stuck mine outside on our front door with coordinating ferns on each side.

It really isn’t quite spring here yet, but it doesn’t hurt to dream and anticipate all the beauty that is on the way!

I plan to keep this botanical beauty up here for months to come, even though snow is possibly coming this week!

I hope this may inspire you to try some fresh springy projects as the season is right around the corner!
