We’ve all seen them – those beautiful wreaths in decorating magazines – and thought, “I could do that myself!”
The good news is that if you are even just a little bit crafty, the Internet is chocked full of “do it yourself” wreath projects to try. We’ve gone around the web, in fact, looking for some unique and inexpensive-to-make wreaths to adorn your door or mantel – anyplace you want to say, “Welcome, spring!” These projects are all easy, too!
We love the idea of making wreaths from everyday items. This first one from Happy Clippings uses simple, natural-colored kraft paper that’s been ruffled for effect. Neutrals are in right now, so this would be pretty with basically any room decor.
For a similar take on neutrals, here’s a burlap wreath from Chic On A Shoestring. This was originally a Christmas wreath, but it was repurposed with sunny spring greenery and flowers. We especially love how fresh it looks “framed” by the white mirror and complemented by porcelain bird figurines and eggs in soft green…other signs of spring.

This burlap wreath is from My Blessed Life. The simple wound burlap is quaint and cozy, and the pretty green and turquoise cloth flowers add a pop of trendy springtime color.

Butterflies are a symbol of warm weather. This wreath from Better Homes and Gardens uses a simple twig wreath and homemade paper butterflies. This is a project that the kiddos could get involved in, too!

Monogramming is back in high style, so how about putting your “stamp” on your front door with a monogram wreath like this one from Amp & Abi? The letter is wound with yarn. Alternatively, you could switch the capital H for your street numbers.

Finally, this whimsical wreath might just win the prize for creativity! Gardening is a springtime activity and we can totally see this garden hose wreath from Housepitality Designs dressing up a patio or mudroom door. So cute!
