DIY: Dress up your front door with a spring wreath

March is here! That means spring is bound to be on its way soon, right? What better way to kick off our monthly theme – windows and doors! – than with our DIY expert Kristina Barbee. She’s preparing for the turn of the season by dressing up her front door with a spring wreath. Kristina shares her latest DIY project with us.

Happy March everyone! Freezing February is finally at an end, so that means spring is here, right? Ok, wrong. We’re still getting snow and although I LOVE snow, I am ready for warmer weather and springtime!

Today, I’m sharing an update to my grapevine wreath. I decided to use a command hook to hang the wreath this time and got rid of the old heavy burlap ribbon.doityourself21

For this project, I grabbed a pack of striped ribbon, 2 ranunculus bushes and 2 baby’s breath picks.

For the flowers, I used wire cutters and cut the bushes apart and set aside.

For the bow, I did the following:

Tip: Since I change it up every season, I added an extra strip of ribbon on the back (step 5) to tie around the wreath.

After I tied the bow on, I hung up the wreath and started adding my flowers. There really isn’t any math or science to the flowers. Just add them in on both sides of the ribbon and fill in the gaps of the flowers with baby’s breath.
Once it is all done, step back and admire your work!
