Making a Spring Floral Wreath

I don’t do that much seasonal decorating (except for my very over-the-top Christmas decorating, of course!). Maybe, it is because San Francisco does not have traditional seasons? Anyway, after our cool and wet winter, I really felt like celebrating Spring this year, so I made a new wreath for our door!

I’ve had this white berry wreath on our door for over a year, convincing myself this was an all-season wreath… but in truth, it may have been meant for winter… what do you think?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • wreath form
  • greenery garland for the base of the wreath. I like to shop for my faux greenery in person, whenever possible, so you can pick what looks most realistic.
  • assorted fabric flowers. Shopping in person also allows you to see the flowers side-by-side to find the combination you like most!
  • green floral wire
  • wire cutters

Here’s how to do it:

  • Place your greenery garland on the wreath base. Mine was longer than the wreath base, so there is an area that is doubled up. This is the part I left open with no flowers
  • Arrange the flowers over about 2/3 of the wreath base, where there is only a single layer of garland
  • When you have the layout you like, use green floral wire to attach the garland and flowers to the base!

Welcome, Spring!
