DIY Spring Wreath


Do you ever find yourself dreaming about the perfect spring wreath but you either can't find it or it's out of your budget? Yeah, me too!! So I decided to take things into my own hands and create the perfect budget friendly spring wreath.


I have been admiring Spring wreaths since summer and couldn't wait to get my hands on one. The wreath I have been gawking over is one I saw on Instagram.


Isn't it beautiful!! I mean who wouldn't admire it!

I bought my supplies from Hobby Lobby.
Hydrangea Stems (two white, one purple; I couldn't find the ones I used so the link is one similar to it)

The other supplies I already had on hand.
Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks
Small Paint Brush

I gathered my supplies together.

I painted the letter two weeks ago when I first bought my supplies. It just took me until yesterday to finally sit down and complete it.

Before beginning the second time around, I cut the hydrangea stems into smaller bunches using pliers. 

Originally, I hot glued the letter before the small bunches but decided to take it off and put it on last about half way through. I also hot glued the flowers two different ways. I started off putting the hot glue on the bunches than attaching to the wreath.


About half way through, I realized that was kinda tricky to quickly put it where I wanted it without the glue drying first. So, I did the last half by placing the flowers where I wanted them first than applying the hot glue. The second way was much easier and helped me decide for sure if I liked the arrangment. Once, I was done I decided where I wanted the letter to be and applied hot glue where needed.

In total, this project took me less than an hour to complete and I am so in love with my spring wreath!!


Price Break Down:
Hydrangea Stems - on sale for $5.99 x 3
Wreath - $2.99
Wooden Letter - $2.49
Paint - $0.77
Total - about $26

I saw one similar to mine on Etsy for $50 so I am completely satisfied that I was able to spend half the price.

Would you spend the $50 or try to DIY? What are you dreaming for this Spring season?
