Spring Wreath

I was going to make a wreath for winter, but that did not quite happen. As most crafting goes, it's better to follow your instincts even if you veer away from your original idea. This was definitely that type of project. I wanted something dark and dreary like the weather, but then I found this bright, happy, yellow and I could not resist. Actually it is kinda perfect since the sun decided to come out today! So here is my winter/spring wreath :)

  • 6" Wired Ribbon (expensive! ~ $7)
  • Fabric
  • Wreath ($5 at Joann's)
  • Hot Glue
First make a couple cute fabric rosettes. I have a tutorial if you need more instruction. I made one out of the ribbon as well to tie it together.

Then take your giant ribbon and tie a ginormous bow on the top. It is really handy to have wired ribbon because it holds it's shape better and does not wilt. Trim the ends.

Attach the rosettes with hot glue.

To hold up the wreath I made my own hook on the back with some extra ribbon. I glued down each end in an arch so it would hang evenly.

Hang and enjoy!


  1. When I was a kid, we had a bunch of permanently dead-looking grapevines as well as willow trees around our property, and one summer my dad and I got really into picking them and making wreaths.

    Simple, but brings back a lot of memories. This wreath reminds me of that. It looks very easter-y. I am almost sad that winter's over.

    Thanks for the tutorial--I might do this myself.
