Spring flower wreaths are the perfect way to start decorating your home for spring. You can place them anywhere in your home, but I love spring wreaths for the front door. Make this beautiful spring wreath with simple tissue paper flowers and branches.
This beautiful spring flower wreath is the perfect way to decorate your front door. Even if spring has not arrived at your house, the colorful flowers will remind you it is not too far away, hopefully! And to add a little more nature to the wreath, the wreath form is made from branches trimmed from a tree (never throw away good wood). I partnered with Spellbinders to create this fun new spring wreath for the front door and love how excited I am to add even more flowers to my decor.
My favorite thing about spring is the flowers! I love when the new flowers start to grow and bloom in our flower garden. Even though I cannot keep flowers alive indoors (all the hard to kill plants tend to just be leaves), I have perfected the easiest, low-maintenance flower garden with lots of perennials that come back each year. You can find me searching through the mulch impatiently waiting for little sprouts of spring.
This year I decided I needed a new spring wreath for the front door. The hot air balloon wreath I made last year just didn’t store well. But I also LOVE making wreaths. It is the perfect way to decorate for every season. So this year I decided I needed a fun spring flower wreath. Especially since the flowers are not going to be sprouting up anytime soon.
So while the snow was falling outside, I turned my craft room into a flower shop. I decided to use the Spellbinders Simple Anemones steel rule die. The steel rule dies are great because you can cut a lot of layers in just one pass. I was able to cut enough tissue paper for 2 flowers each time. Easy peasy!
But after I made the beautiful tissue paper flowers for my spring wreath, I realized I hadn’t thought about what to put them on. Of course I could easily go for a traditional wreath form, even a grapevine wreath would be beautiful, but that is not how I roll. I happened to have a small branch left over from the woodsy fall log wreath I made a couple years ago (yes I am a wood scrap hoarder). I knew the delicate spring flowers would be beautiful on a log wreath. And using old branches means its free!
Now my front door looks just like spring! The spring flower wreath is perfect on my green door (PS I love this color, it is XX from Behr). I love the sweet little tissue paper flowers and the simple log frame. Now if only Mother Nature will get the hint and bring back spring because this is what our front yard looks like. YIKES!
