Quick And Affordable Spring Wreath

It’s almost the weekend!! And it just so happens to be Mother’s Day on Sunday. Did you find a gift for your mom? Or would you like to add a pop of color to your front door? I’ve got you covered with a really quick and affordable spring wreath that you can create for about $20.00.

It’s Finally Spring

The cold days and long nights have been replaced with warmer temperatures and much more sun. And with spending more time outside I noticed that my front door was needing a quick update.

A few weeks back I spent a Saturday afternoon updating my front door with a new coat of paint. And I LOVE how it turned out. This was a fast project that I made a video about, showing you how simple it is to update a front door. Seriously simple. It took me about 4 hours to make over the front door.

But I wanted a little something extra. So I ran to Wal-Mart, and searched for supplies to make a springtime wreath.

Let’s Make A Wreath

And as I was walking around, I considered just buying a wreath form, and lots of silk flowers to make a wreath. But then I found a Boxwood wreath that was so adorable! And it was affordable. Just $11.68 for this wreath. Not too bad right?

But I wanted some color too, not just green.

And then I walked by their huge tower of silk flowers they have at my local Wal-Mart. I love that my store has these flowers. Every so often I will grab a few bundles of the flowers to update my jumps, or for a random project. If your Wal-Mart has these flowers, they can be a very affordable way to update your home (or horse jumps) for spring!

I found a really pretty pink flower for my wreath. I bought 3 bundles of the pink flowers at a whopping $0.96 a piece. How’s that for affordable?

And then I found a few extra green sprigs too.

Then making the wreath was easy. I cut the floral stems down, plugged in my glue gun and glued the floral stems into the wreath.

About 15 minutes later, I had a very pretty spring wreath to hang on my newly painted front door!

All that was left to do was to hang the wreath. I didn’t want to use one of the over the door wreath hangers I have because it wouldn’t fit my wreath. SO I took a piece of floral wire and attached it to the hanger on the back of the wreath.

Then I put the wreath in the position I wanted it to be, and secured the wire on the back side of my door with some packing tape. Sure it doesn’t look the best, but for now it will do. And the front view is the one that matters!

The total cost of my project was $19.52! This included buying the boxwood wreath, 4 silk flower bundles and a package of glue sticks. I only used one glue stick for the project, but I included the cost because well, I did have to buy the glue. If you don’t have to buy any glue, you can make the wreath for around $15.00!

Talk about an easy DIY project! And I think this would make a really thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day too.

I hope you have a wonderful, warm weekend and are able to share Mother’s Day with the special mother’s in your life. Happy Spring!
