DIY Budget Spring Wreath

5 Materials
1 Hour

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

Let's make a beautiful Spring wreath!

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.

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.
