Spring Wreaths Straight from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon

We've got a beautiful and bountiful Spring Wreath for every style!

What better way to welcome springtime than with a wreath full of flowers and greenery.

Tulip Wreath

We here at Hometalk have a special appreciation for tulips- we can't get enough of them (Editors note: Miriam was just at the Tulip Festival- check out her post!). As the most signature flower of spring, we can't think of a more fitting spring wreath.

Buy a variety of silk or synthetic tulips from a reliable source (we want them to look fabulous, right?) like Afloral.com. Choose whatever colors get you the most excited for spring! We love the color schemes of both Christina & Jacque. Christina stuck her flowers into the base of a grapevine wreath, while Jacque used a foam wreath wrapped in ribbon, and stuck the flower stems in-between the ribbon and the foam. Either way, cut the tulip bouquets up into smaller stems, and have fun planning out which color to stick where.

The thing that makes both of these wreaths look particularly stunning is that they packed in quite a few tulip buds- we recommend doing the same!

Hydrangea Wreath

We love how full and abundant hydrangeas look- especially when crafted into a beautiful spring wreath! Look at how perfectly Maryann offset the color of the hydrangeas with bright green moss and small white flowers. To make this wreath, begin with a grapevine wreath, and insert the flowers in between the vines. Top it off with some nice blue burlap- or any other color that you'd like. You can even hang this spring wreath inside, like Maryann did.

Daffodil Spring Wreath

We love Deb's flower choice, down-to-earth daffodils. Deb created this wreath by sprucing up one she already had lying around from seasons past. She simply pulled the flower tops off the old stems, and replaced them with new flower tops. We think her sprinkling of smaller purple and pink flowers just makes this spring wreath look extra cheery.

Spring Bouquet Wreath

Doesn't this wreath just look like spring is bounding off into your arms? You can easily get this lovely bouquet wreath look- just follow Melissa from Stockpiling Mom's tips. Begin with a basic grapevine wreath, and keep in mind that the key design element is a 'top heavy' wreath, with the longer stems coming down.

The background layer is served well by golden rod, followed by tulips and daffodils in the middle ground, and the stand out purple iris as the foreground. For the visual center, add a burlap bow and an easter ornament using a glue gun, like this cute birds nest selected by Melissa. Because there is a fair amount of flowers coming out of one section of the wreath, you may need to secure the flowers with a hot glue gun as well.

Wildflower Wreath

We love how this spring wreath by Melissa looks like an armful of wildflowers- and it takes no time at all! She made this wreath for her mother, who taught her all she knows about wreath- making.

Start with a plain grapevine wreath (starting to notice a pattern?), and quite heartily wrap fern garland around it. Allowing for a few loose strands will help achieve the 'country' look. Next add the blue bunched blossoms and accompanying leaves, adding slightly more to the bottom. Next, add in some white wispy flowers, again mostly to the bottom half of the wreath. Next, cut apart the yellow bunched flowers, and add those in, concentrated at the bottom center, but climbing up one side of the wreath to achieve the ultimate effect. We love the bright coloring and wide variety of flowers offeredby Afloral.com - so you'll likely be able to find versions of your local wildflowers to make this look extra homey.

A Spring Wreath For All You Gardeners

Here is a super adorable and incredibly easy spring wreath - a garden hose! To start, coil the garden hose and secure it with a twisty-tie. Then insert the small spring bouquet of your choice into the twisty tie, layer on some colorful garden gloves, then finish with a lovely ribbon and bow. Feel free to get creative with fun extra clips like Jill did- how precious is that ladybug?

Rabbits-in-the Field Wreath

This animated spring wreath consists of two wreaths, attached at the side. Lizy's bigger one is about 28' diameter and the smaller one is close to 16'diameter. She attached the flowers and draping grass with wires, and purposely left some of the underlying grapevine wreath bare to represent the rabbit's holes and burrows. Selecting some nice dangling greenery is key to creating the 'in the field' look. We think most of the fun will be finding the cutest rabbits to be the stars of your spring wreath scene!

Spring Berries Wreath

What better way to celebrate spring than with fruits and berries! You can easily make your own verison of this lovely Country Living Magazine spring wreath. You can use live ones from your yard (or surrounding area) or buy plastic berry pieces and ivy from a craft supply store. Wrap short lengths of the berry vines around a heavy-gauge wire (we like 10'-12'). Wind the wire around the vines to secure, and use wire to piece the berries, and then attach to the wreath. Fresh berry wreaths can last a whole day!

Spring Wreath of Dried Roses

Anne of White Lace Cottage broke from the norm and used a wooden frame as her spring wreath foundation. She then attached her dried roses using a hot glue gun, varying the colors and at times leaving some space so the underlying wood frame could peek through. We think this perfectly captures the Shabby Chic look!

Spring Willow Wreath

This is one of the most visually arresting wreaths on our list. This spring willow wreath is sure to make a grand statement, whether hung from your door or wall. Begin with the twig-style wreath of your choice (Barb used a will wreath as her base), and begin inserting the willow branches into the bottom of the wreath alternating between left and right. Insert the branches in a 'spray' shape, with the flow coming out of the center and spreading out to the side. The willow branches at the top can be wrangled in, closer to the wreath base. This mid-way photo ought to point you in the right direction:


Delicate Vine Wreath

For those of you looking to make a more delicate wreath statement, this is the perfect DIY project for you. Abbybegan with an embroidery hoop, and sparing looped around some handsome ivey. We just love her finishing touches of a nice spring bow at the bottom and a few colorful butterflies.

Coffee Filter Wreath

This spring wreath idea from Angie of The Country Chic Cottage would make such a fun craft to do with the kiddos. First mix up your desired colors in small bowls with water and food coloring. Then dip the ends of the coffee filters into the food coloring, the coloring effect will travel up the filter while they set them aside to dry. You can use any wreath form as the base, just first wrap it with cotton strips. Finally, attach the dried and color coffee filters at the base, using a hot glue gun. It's easiest to begin from the outermost part of the wreath, like so:

We think it would be fun to experiment with tye-dye effects, or even aim for an ombre coloring effect!

Any craft that you can make all your own is a great DIY project in our book.

Fun Floral Hat Wreath

This wonderfully creative idea from Barb at Our Fairfield Home and Garden is a unique take on spring wreaths, and do-able in just a few minutes! Simply arrange your desired flowers and ivy around the brim of the hat, and hot glue one! Nothing quite says 'springtime' like star hats to us! Like the coffee filter spring wreath, we encourage you to make this craft all your own- decorate with items and themes that reflect your unique personality.

If you're not quite up for the DIY task, we are big fans of Pier 1's wreath selection, and the work by Lenore of Design a Wreath - how beautiful!

    How about one where the gloves look as if they are holding the wreath? Placed on either side filled with foam.

    Some are quite beautiful. Not to offend, butDYI isn't an excuse to look like you did it yourself! I see cheap, gaudy, ridiculous, fake objects that scream dollar store! Or, "I was bored, so I made a first grade project". Where is the creativity with
