Simple DIY Spring Wreath: A Pop of Color for Your Door

Simple DIY Spring Wreath

As the snow melts away and the first green sprouts begin to peek through the soil (or even if it’s still snowing, like this year 🙈), one of my favorite ways to welcome the new spring season is with a fresh pop of color for the front door. Today, I’m excited to share with you another easy DIY spring wreath. I made this eucalyptus spring wreath quite a few years ago, and it was high time for a new one!

Step 1: Lay Out Your Design

Before you dive into attaching anything, lay out your flowers and greenery around your wreath to get a sense of how you want your final product to look.

Simple DIY Spring Wreath step 1

Lately, I’ve been loving the really simple wreaths with just a few stems along the bottom. I arranged a few gypsophila stems along the bottom and weaved in a couple boxwood leaves and wildflower stems.

This step is all about letting your creativity flow. There are no rules here—mix and match colors and textures until you’re happy with it.

Step 2: Secure Your Greenery

Start with your greenery as the base layer. Use floral wire to secure the stems to the wreath. This not only adds depth to your wreath but also creates a lush backdrop for the pop of color. If needed, add a dab of hot glue to ensure everything stays exactly where you want it.

I attached the gypsophila stems first, as the main greenery. Then added a few stems of the boxwoods. The wire was flexible enough that I was able to weave the boxwood stems into the wire I attached the gypsophila stems with. As you can see above, I wove the wire around and around the hoop and added in stems as I went. You could also just do single loops of wire around each stem in a few spots (twist them tight to tie it off in the back). Add wire as necessary, or use hot glue.

Step 3: Add Your Flowers

Once your green base is in place, it’s time to add the pop of color – the flowers! Attach each flower individually, experimenting with placement until everything looks balanced. I either weaved the flowers into the existing wire or used hot glue to secure them.

This part usually involves a fair amount of wrestling the wreath … it can take some “finesse” to get the stems into place and secured.

Step 4: The Finishing Touches

After all the stems are securely attached, step back and see how it looks. This is your chance to tweak the arrangement, fill in any gaps, or add any final stems.

Tie a loop of velvet ribbon to the top of the wreath for hanging it on the door. If you want, you can also add a bow along the bottom – I’ve done that on quite a few wreaths a love the extra texture and color. I just decided to keep this one really simple and focus on the stems.
