In honor of the official start of Spring I want to share a DIY for the perfect Spring wreath.
After months with a Fall wreath and a Christmas wreath on our front door, I noticed that our door has looked a little bare lately as we enter the Spring season. So I set out to find the perfect Spring wreath to add to our collection. I found that perfect wreath pretty quickly in a Williams-Sonoma catalog. I immediately fell in love but just could not justify the very high $130 price tag.
Williams-Sonoma's Real Hydrangea Wreath
So I decided to make my own hydrangea wreath and settled on using fake hydrangeas to give my wreath many years of use. A visit to Michael's complete with a lot of digging through an excessive amount of silk flowers had me set for some wreath-making fun.
My supplies included:
-hot glue gun
-hot glue sticks
-grape vine wreath
-Fake hydrangeas (I used 9 total)
-the WS inspiration photo
The hydrangeas can really add up at $5.99 a piece. Fortunately Michael's constantly has sales going on. I waited until they had 40% off all fake flowers and immediately pounced on the deal.
I started by cutting the stems off of the flowers with the wire cutters. I left about an inch of the stem on the flowers to secure them into the wreath.
I then applied about a quarter sized dot of hot glue to the wreath. I then weaved the stem of a flower into the wreath and held the flower next to the hot glue for a few seconds until it was secure. I then repeated this process with the rest of the flowers until the whole wreath was covered in gorgeous hydrangeas.
30 minutes later we have a simple and chic Spring wreath adorning our door.
I'm in love and kind of want to make more in different colors! Best of all, I saved over $100 by making my own version of the WS hydrangea wreath.
