I used a variety of faux flowers and greenery that I got on deep discount at Michaels. I didn't use any hot glue on my wreaths, so that I can reuse the supplies in the future if I want to. These wreaths are made to hang indoors; if you want to make them sturdy for outdoors, you will definitely want to use hot glue and wire to attach the stems securely.
DIY Budget Spring Wreath
Don't spend a fortune on a new Spring wreath, make one yourself! I'm sharing two gorgeous wreaths I made from one grapevine form. I'm Cindy and I'm addicted to DIY You can find hundreds of thrifty decorating ideas on my blog at diybeautify.com.
Let's make a beautiful Spring wreath!
After dividing my grapevine wreath into smaller ones (you can find out WHY and HOW I do that by watching this short video), I made two grapevine forms in custom sizes for my Spring wreaths. This one I painted with a little white spray paint.
This one I wrapped with a eucalyptus garland. For the purposes of keeping this tutorial a manageable size, the wreath tutorial I'll be sharing below will be the one made on the white grapevine. I will however, show both completed wreaths below. Please note that the tutorial is the same for both, I just used a few different flowers and items.
Before anything gets attached to the grapevine base, I like to experiment with flower placement to get an idea of how I want the wreath to look.
After that, I trim all my stems down to a couple inches.
Next, I start with the main florals (largest flowers). I poke the stem through the grapevine, then bend it and poke it through again to hold it in place. I like to place the flowers as close as possible so there are no gaps between them.
Look how pretty it looks already! I could totally stop here and have a beautiful wreath.
Next I add the complementary florals, tucking in the stems so they're hiding underneath the larger flowers. I use a little wire to attach the stems that want to poke out.
I keep working my way around the wreath, adding flowers. This wreath was symmetrical on each side.
Finally I added a few small wood slices because I like the contrast. I did hot glue these as there was no other way to attach them.
For this wreath, I kept the decorative elements on the bottom and used a polka dot ribbon to hang it.
Here is the other wreath I made in the same way, although it's more asymmetrical. All the flowers are simply tucked into the grapevine.
I was fortunate to buy all my flowers on sale and made BOTH Spring wreaths for around $45!! The wreath above is huge!
I hope this tutorial is helpful and saves you a lot of money. You can visit my blog post below for a complete supplies list and links to the specific florals I used.
