Hey friends! Can you feel it? Spring is almost here! In fact, here in Texas it was sunny and in the upper 70’s all weekend. We got tons of work done in the yard, and I thought it was finally time to update some of my decorations for spring.
One of my favorite things to change out every season is my door wreath. I just feel like having a wreath on my door gives the house a welcoming, cozy feel. I didn’t put a new one up after Christmas, and it looked so barren! It was definitely time to change that.
There are some truly gorgeous wreaths available these days, but I really have a minimalist style. I decided on a simple farmhouse style wreath with tulips for spring.

This was a really quick and easy DIY project. In fact, I finished the whole thing (including cleaning up and hanging the wreath) during my toddler’s nap time! That is always a bonus, because crafting with toddlers can be such a headache. If you’d like to make your own wreath for spring, I’ve outlined what I did below!
- Natural Grapevine Wreath – 18″
- 1 bunch of white tulips
- Wire Cutter
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Satin Ribbon
DIY Wreath Instructions
Grapevine wreaths are some of my favorites to make. Not only do they provide a more rustic and minimal look, but they are also really easy to make.
First, cut the bunch of tulips, so you can work with them individually. You’ll want to leave the stems long so you can weave them into the wreath.
Then, separate all of the leaves from the flowers, because you’ll be working with those first.
Once everything is cut and ready, take all of your leaves and lay them out along the side of the wreath. When you like the way it looks, go ahead and use the hot glue to attach it all to the wreath and give it more support. With the stems woven through the branches, it’ll be petty secure on it’s own, but this step helps ensure that nothing will move.
Once everything is secure, it’s time to add a bow to the bottom. This hides the stems and it also sort of anchors the entire arrangement. I tried hanging it without the ribbon, and it felt like the flowers were just “floating.” Of course, it’s a personal opinion, but I definitely preferred adding a nice big bow out of white satin ribbon to mine.
To make the bow, I first wrap a length of yarn around the wreath where I want it and glue that down. Then, I make a bow to glue onto the front of that. This way, it’ll sit horizontally instead of vertically.
Now, it’s time to hang it on your door and enjoy it for an entire season! Don’t you think it’s spruced up my boring brown porch nicely?
Don’t you just love how something so simple can make such a big difference? I love being able to welcome guests with a pretty front porch, and adding a pretty wreath certainly helps!
