DIY Rustic and Natural Spring Wreath

Spring Wreath

I’ve been wanting to make my own spring wreath for awhile now, but due to the cold weather of the past few months I had to put this project on hold. I was so excited this past week when the temperature was in the 70’s! It was so gorgeous outside that there was not way I was going to stay cooped up in the house all day.

Thankfully I remembered that I wanted to try my hand at a “natural wreath”, and it soon became a wonderful a day πŸ™‚

All you need for this DIY spring wreath is:

  • a wreath frame (they range in price from $2 to $10 depending on where you go)
  • long vines or thin, pliable branches
  • twine
  • a little bit of patience
  • and pixie dust (just kidding πŸ˜‰

Below you’ll see a picture of the wreath frame that I used. I almost forgot to take a beginning picture. Oops!

This was my first time making a natural wreath so I just twisted and tried a few different techniques for wrapping the vines and branches around my frame. Here are a few tips that might also help you if you’re interested in making one yourself:

  • Try to select vines without thorns. This might seem obvious, but you’ll thank yourself for ensuring you have selected vines without them. As Ava would say, “they are just a tiny bit ouchie”.
  • Select vines and pliable branches that are not completely dead or dried out. They’ll just continuously break every time you try to move them around your frame.
  • Personally, I wouldn’t recommend using a length of more than 3-4 feet at a time. I found it a little frustrating pulling and weaving too much length through my frame. It always seemed to be catching on something.

  • Use a nice selection of vines and branches with and without leaves. I realize that the leaves will eventually turn brown and fall off, but for the time being it’s so nice to a little bit of color!
  • This is essential. Have entertainment while you work πŸ˜‰ Our Sheltie, Kyler, has been obsessed with birds since he was a puppy. Typically he is running around trying to catch our neighbor’s guineas, but on this particular morning he was as happy as clam playing “guard duty”. What can I say? I am easily amused!

  • After you’re all done winding, weaving and pulling your ideal amount of vines and branches around your frame determine how you will hang it up. I decided to just use a little bit of twine to so it wouldn’t take away from the overall beauty of such a simple design.
  • Last: Enjoy your creation!

  1. This is so adorable. I love that you used leaves in it. It gives it so much more character!! I have a ton of vines and have been wanting to make one of these since forever…but procrastinate lol.
    PS. the photo of your dog and the guineas is priceless! My aunt has some of those to help with the garden critters and stuff. The fact that you dog does not eat them is simply amazing lol. Mine was on the hunt the day he spotted them at their house!

    1. Hi Jess, I know how that is! I just never seem to have enough minutes in the day πŸ™‚ P.S. Loving YOUR site!

  2. I love this! I don’t have access to all those branches, but I love the way that it looks! Especially with the leaves. It looks great, like spring! But it will look great for any season.

    1. Thank you so much! You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to actually find flexible branches/vines with leaves. Who knew?
