Recycled:: Square Spring Wreath

Spring is upon us which means it’s time to bring out the fresh flowers and spruce up our front doors with some ‘Spring-y’ decor.

I haven’t had a chance to work on a wreath for my door yet, but I did make one last Spring. Since I have some new readers, I thought I would recycle an old post and provide some {new to some} Spring project inspiration. Read on to learn how to make this DIY Spring wreath.

DIY Spring Wreath

The wreath started out looking like this. Pitiful, I know. I had made a faux boxwood wreath the year before and it had been sitting in storage for a year. So it needed a little TLC.

I decided to re-use the wreath instead of buying a new one. I removed all the greenery to start with just a plain square wreath base.

I wanted the wreath to have a full/clumpy look. Typically when you buy the filler stuff at a craft store, you angle them into the wreath and they lay against the wreath. But since I wanted the baby’s breath to be front and center, I had to cut them down quite a bit.

But, since I was cutting them down into such small pieces, it took a lot longer than I planned. It probably took me a good 3-4 hours total. :/ Some of you may be faster than me, but if you wish to duplicate, be sure to set enough time aside!

I also added some hot glue here and there to make sure some of the baby’s breath stayed in place.

Here’s what it looks like all finished.

I knew our door was blue, so I also didn’t want to do something that would clash with that. I found this fun purple and white patterned ribbon and it added just the perfect touch.
