Welcome spring with wildflowers and a simple DIY craft to dress up your front door!
The recent temperatures have certainly been the highlight of the past few weeks. Spring bulbs are in full bloom, painting a picturesque scene for many of us who’ve been spending more time than ever at home.
Once I tackled my spring cleaning tasks, the front porch needed a little pick me up. While the flower containers aren’t quite ready to be planted, the door is a great place to add some greenery! I feel like everything is alright in the world when my front porch is happily adorned with seasonal touches- how about you?
Much like last year’s outdoor hoop wreath, this DIY wildflower wreath is simple to construct. It’s a 30-min project from start to finish. Let your creative juices take over and get crafty. The wildflowers don’t need to be arranged perfectly, an element of natural disarray is alluring in this case.
Supplies for DIY Wildflower Wreath
- Olive Garland
- Lavendar (mixed bunches)
- White Lilac or Phlox Stems (I used some of the leaves too)
- Small white ball shaped flowers – look like clover flowers
- A branched greenery for texture (I used Queen Anne’s Lace)
- Green floral wire
- Grapevine wreath
- Strong snips or shears
Crafting the Wildflower Wreath
For the base, I used a basic grapevine wreath. They are inexpensive and easy to find in any craft store or in the craft aisle of Walmart. Divide your flowers (use shears to cut large bunches into smaller ones) and tuck throughout the vines. Use your own artistic eye for placement.
Once your flowers are tucked in snugly, it’s time to add a layer of greenery. For this version, I deconstructed olive garland left over from Christmas decor.
Don’t you just love finding ways to repurpose craft materials?
Use green floral wire to attach any pieces that don’t feel completely secure to the wreath. My wreath is exposed to the elements so I don’t want to worry about chasing wildflowers down my driveway in a windstorm. To secure loose pieces, wrap floral wire around the stems and thread the other end through the grapevines.
