Spring is my favourite season, by far! There is just something about the lush green everywhere and the promise of better weather ahead (…yes, even in the UK!) If you’ve been following me for a bit, you know there’s a few things I REALLY love .. Trays is definitely my number one addiction. And the other? Well, wreaths! Having a seasonal wreath in your home is a great way to invite different seasons into your home and mixing things up. With days getting longer and summer on its’ way there’s no better time to tackle this very easy Spring Wreath DIY project. You really do not need any craft skills for this. As long as you can wrap yarn around a ring and press a few pins into place, you’re all set for this fun project.
I first saw this spring wreath on Pinterest and just loved the simplicity of it (you know I’m all about keeping things simple!) Of course there are loads of spring wreaths in the shops to buy, but let’s be honest – some can work out pretty expensive. And you’re missing out on the fun and satisfaction of making one. Here’s what you’ll need to create your own with some basic materials.
here’s what you need
- 30 cm polystyrene ring
- 2 balls of eyelash yarn (I used lime green)
- Daisy trim – 30 flowers (25 mm) – I chose pink ones, but available in different colours.
- Pearl Pins (matching the colour of the daisies) – 1.5 inch pins with 4 mm heads
- Ribbon – colour of your choice. For obvious reasons, I chose pink.
- Tooth pick
- Accessories (optional) to finish
- Glue or glue gun
How to create your own spring wreath
Making this Spring wreath really couldn’t be easier. The first bit is a bit time consuming but definitely not difficult. You can do it with your feet up while catching up with your favourite Netflix series.
Start by wrapping the yarn around the polystyrene ring until it’s completely covered. Every so often push the yarn closer together to fill in any gaps. When you’ve completely covered the ring, turn it around to check for any empty patches and continue to wrap the yarn around to fill in any remaining gaps. When you’ve finished, tuck the end of the yarn under the wrapped yarn a few times to secure. I didn’t take any pictures of this process, but you can refer back to the video if you need to.
You will probably only use about a pack and a half but the more you add, the fluffier your “grass” will be.
Once covered, take your daisy trim and carefully cut the daisies into individual ones. Make sure not to damage the thread of the daisies.
Get a pin and stick them through the middle of the daisy, securing them into the ring. Repeat this until you’re happy with the effect. I used 31 flowers for this 30 cm wreath, allowing some space for where the ribbon will be placed.
With a tooth pick or a needle, carefully lift some of the “lashes” that have been squashed by the yarn. By lifting them to the top it will make your grass nice and fluffy. Continue all the way round the ring until you’re happy with the effect.
Finally, cut off a piece of ribbon of your choice to hang up your spring wreath
Your wreath looks great as it is, but you can add some optional fun accessories. I found a sticker with the word “spring” which was just perfect for what I needed (and matched all the colours I had used .. win/win!). Glued on a toothpick with a glue gun, and carefully pressed into the “grass”.
Of course, you can add as many or little accessories as you like. Perhaps some chicks or little bunnies that are playfully hiding in the grass? Try some different things and create your own style!
But most of all .. just have fun!
