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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
