Spring Garden Door Decor


A different take on a spring wreath. This door decor project is different than my typical wreath decor. I do love wreath making, but sometimes, a little change is good! You might recognize most of the items I used to make this if you’re a frequent Dollar Tree shopper. I think it’s a fun take on a spring garden wreath.

I purchased the garden trellis along with some birds, butterflies and flowers on a recent trip to Dollar Tree. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to make with this, but when I spotted the “Spring” sign at the dollar spot at Target, an idea started coming together

The butterflies are pretty delicate. I tried attaching them with the wire that came with it, but it quickly pulled away from the butterfly. I used hot glue to attach them. I did the same with the little birds. I originally thought I would use blue birds, but they didn’t have the spring look I wanted. I also bought a few of the pastel colored ones and decided to use those.

I added a flower to the door hanger instead of using a bow.

The “Spring” sign was orange when I bought it and orange isn’t a color that I wanted to use. A couple of coats of white chalk paint and I liked it much better.

The flowers are attached to each other and the rail using hot glue.To attach the flowers in the space in the middle, I needed something to glue them to. I looked around for a small piece of wood to use and the first thing I saw was a paint stirrer. It’s a good size. I glued it to the back of the trellis and then glued flowers to it.

I always have a stash of silk flowers, so I used an assortment of styles and colors.

The cattails are held in place through the trellis.

How simple and inexpensive is this! I’m using this as indoor spring decor. I don’t think the birds and butterflies would hold up well to wind or rain outdoors.

    I love this for indoors in any room, on a wall or door. You have so many ideas, but do you think you might do something similar for the other seasons or holidays? A funny story about Dollar Tree birds: I bought one that chirped when it was motion-activated for the Christmas tree in the foyer. It drove me nuts so I clipped it to a shrub outside to delight my grandchildren. After Christmas sometime, I thought about the bird. Naturally, the battery was dead, but it looks good, so I brought it in. Now I clip it to one artificial ficus tree or another in the house, and the girls look for it when they visit.

    • I'm sure something similar could be done for lots of other holidays. The 4th of July could be a good one for using the trellis. That's great about the bird. It's fun to find different ways to use Dollar Tree items.
