Spring Inspired DIY Wreath Blog Hop

Spring Inspired DIY Wreath Blog Hop

Welcome to the Spring Inspired DIY Wreath Blog Hop and Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy at County Road 407. If you came from Blue Sky at Home blog, welcome y’all.

The way a Pinterest Challenge works is that we have one inspiration photo from Pinterest. Then, each blogger creates something similar that works with our own style.  This month, our inspiration photo comes from Jill over at Create Craft Love.  The garden hose wreath is so creative. Specifically, Jill encouraged me to think about using different items as a base for a wreath.

 

Today, I am sharing an easy, Spring inspired DIY wreath that I made with a few things in my decor stash!  Specifically, I am creating a wreath with a small tobacco basket.

 

Supplies Needed:

You can use any kind of faux flowers or greenery. For instance, I am using three white faux flowers from The Findery and 3 string of pearl succulents from AFloral.  Tip: Use groups of three or five depending on size of basket.  This white tobacco basket was only $3 from Hobby Lobby’s Spring decor clearance.

  • Tobacco basket
  • Faux greenery – hanging succulents, eucalyptus, lambs ear, etc…
  • 3-5 faux flowers
  • Floral wire or twist ties

 

How to Make DIY Spring Wreath

  1. First, arrange faux flowers and greenery to your liking. I like an asymmetrical style. Therefore, I staggered the succulents and the flowers on the right side of the basket.
  2.  Then, pull the end of the greenery stems through different openings in the basket. Tie in place with floral wire.
  3. Next, stagger the faux flowers in front of the greenery. Pull the ends through the basket and tie with wire.

The last thing to do is to hang it on your front door!

  1. Amy, I am loving your version. I love tobacco baskets and am loving the your white one. Adding the greenery and white flowers is perfect. Love working with you on this challenge.

  2. I love the elegant vibe this has, Amy. The flowers remind me of the beautiful gardenias that were in my wedding bouquet; oh, the fragrance. Your front door and entry is amazing; what a fun place to style and decorate!

  3. Smart to use the inspiration photo for a ‘different’ base, Amy! Love the succulents and basket, too! Using floral wire is great when you want to use the items again! Pinned to my wreath board! If all goes well, I believe we will be mentoring together at Haven! 😉

  4. Amy, darling “wreath” for the front door. Happy to have you on the Pinterest Challenge. The combo of the tobacco basket and the magnolia leaves is beautiful. Perfect for a girl from Waco.

  5. Very cute Amy and I love your door! I missed this challenge but wanted to see all the inspiration! Stay Healthy + Connected, laura

  6. Your wreath looks so pretty on your front door, Amy. Using a tobacco basket as a wreath base is a great idea. I really like the florals and succulents that you used. It’s a great look for spring.

  7. Hi Amy! I love the tobacco basket idea as a background and the pretty white faux magnolias are beautiful with the green succulents. Simple and beautiful… Enjoy your entryway this spring!!
