CRAFT :: Spring to Easter Wreath

how to make a spring wreath, easy spring to easter wreath, burlap, flowers


Today I am sharing a gorgeous wreath that is convertible! Say what? Yes, that's right  . . . this wreath will give you TWO options: use it now for Easter and then again as just a spring wreath or the other way around! This super easy spring to Easter wreath can be made to match your own color scheme with just a few supplies and will have you wanting to make a couple more when you are done! (at least I do! ;)

For the supplies, I personally like using pool noodles duck taped together for a wreath form as it makes a nice size wreath and if you stock up on those pool noodles when they are on clearance . . . well the price is right too! Can you say 10 cents! Yup I paid 10 cents for that pool noodle last year! OK back to the supplies . . . the other items you see pictured I grabbed on my last trip to Hobby Lobby. The carrots, flowers (I had already), the Easter egg garland and the burlap ribbon. The thing about buying supplies is I honestly never know how my wreath ideas will turn out until you get the goods home and start to play around with different options. Just get a few things that you love and go with it. To be honest, I planned on this being an Easter wreath ONLY but when I saw it before adding the Easter items, I changed my mind & came up with a solution to do both!

In addition to the supplies you picked to make your Easter- Spring wreath, you will need a glue gun, glue sticks, scissors and some sewing push pins.

Step 1:
If using a pool noodle, duck tape it together to form a circle or simply use a wreath form - either will work just fine. Take your burlap ribbon, apply some glue to the end of the ribbon and attach to the wreath form, then start wrapping around the whole form until completely covered. Apply some glue at the end to attach to wreath form so it holds in place.

Step 2:
Next I decided that since I only had so much of this striped burlap ribbon, that I would cut it into equal strips that were long enough to go around the wreath form and create a design around the wreath. Once I figured out the placement, I attached with my glue gun.

Step 3:
I then took my flowers I had chosen and cut them off of their stem so I could attach them with the glue gun, in bunches around the wreath. Again the easiest way to decide where to attach is simply laying it all out and changing it up until you find something that you love!

Step 4:
For my bow, before cutting up all of my ribbon in step 2, I saved back enough to create this simple bow to attach to the wreath.

This is the point that I changed my mind, like I mentioned earlier, as I love how it was looking right now. Since I was planning on hanging this on my front door and I knew it would look amazing since I gave my front door a makeover and painted it dark blue last year, I decided to have the best of both worlds: a spring wreath AND an Easter wreath!

Step 5:
Let's switch it up to an Easter wreath! I simply took the egg garland (that I had unstrung as I thought I would be gluing them on the wreath) and re-strung them using some bakers twine and tied it to the back. I also attached a carrot to the wreath, using sewing push pins, that way, when Easter is over, I can simply remove the pins and untie the egg garland. This keeps the Easter items in tact so they can be used again next Easter plus it doesn't damage the existing spring wreath. Win-win! ;)

The only thing left to do is to hang on your front door and enjoy! Doesn't it look amazing on that blue door? Looooooove!
