Simple Spring Wreath

It’s that time of year again…you know the one…my mom’s birthday!  My mom is always happy when I make her something, so since she’s been hinting at a new wreath for her front door, that’s exactly what she got.

I love how it turned out, so I’m excited to share it with you today!

Simple Spring Wreath with Apples

I wanted to make her something fresh and cheerful, but that didn’t scream Spring, especially since there is still snow threatening our area.

This was so simple to make. First I gathered my supplies:

Simple Spring Wreath 15

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Hot glue gun/hot glue sticks
  • Wide wired burlap ribbon
  • Stems of your choice (I chose three stems and apples for an accent)

Simple Spring Wreath 16

You probably know by now that I prefer one-sided wreaths. That’s my technical term for “all the stuff on one side”.  You don’t have to worry about keeping everything balanced and you spend less on floral stems to fill it.

That’s the best reason for us cheap-skates. πŸ™‚

I started by cutting my first stems apart:

Then I added them to my wreath using a little hot glue on the end of each to secure in place.

A little sad to start, no?

Keep going…

I cut my next set of stems apart too:

And added them to my wreath…

Simple Spring Wreath 10

Looking good so far…

Then I continued to cut my third set of stems:

Simple Spring Wreath 9

I liked that these had some leafiness to them (that’s a word, right? πŸ™‚ ).

I added these and my apples:

A pretty burlap bow attached with floral wire finishes it off perfectly!

So simple, right?

I tried it out on my front door:

I’m thinking I need to make one for me too!

I love the burlap against the freshness of the flowers:

I didn’t tell my mom I was making this, I just hung it on her front door and rang the doorbell. She was so surprised and loved it!

I need to create something pretty for my own door now!

It would be really nice if all I had to do was hint around to somebody that I wanted one hmmm…

You might also like my Summer wreath from last year that I made for less than $10! It would also be perfect for Spring!

  5. Hi Christy! This is so pretty and your Mom is going to love it! I think we are all ready for Spring and this wreath absolutely brings it. Love the green apples! Pinning and thanks for sharing – have a happy Monday!

    • Thanks, Cindy! I think it’s safe to say we are ALL ready for Spring!! It’s funny because last year our winter was so mild that I wasn’t really ready for Spring and then we got a late winter storm and that did it lol, but this year…I am SO ready! Hope you have a fantastic week! XO

  6. I love this wreath! I would’ve never thought to add apples. They are great!

  7. Great job and how pretty! I think I’ll try to put one together like yours for us Southern people to enjoy! Love the colors since my door is a deep burnt red.

    • Thanks, Cathy! This would be pretty on your door and it was really simple to put together. SO glad to hear from you. I think we have one more winter storm coming and then hopefully that will be it. I’m so ready for Spring and I’m sure you are too! πŸ™‚

  8. Lovely! I have trouble making wreaths. When I try, they turn out wonky. he key for me is to not try so hard. lol You make it look effortless. πŸ˜€

  9. It’s so pretty Christy! The green apples are so springy! So sweet how you presented it to her. πŸ™‚


  10. This is so pretty! I’m pinning this!!
    I don’t care what the calendar says… I’m in spring mode, lol! πŸ™‚

  11. I completely suck at wreath-making. Can you come out to Illinois and tutor me?

    And not to sound like a complete imbecile, but how is that wreath hanging? It looks like you’re magically levitating it against the door. Inquiring (stupid) minds want to know….


    • I only make one sided wreaths because they are kind of no fault…plus they’re prettier to me! How far away are you from Wisconsin? My sister lives in Kenosha! I have this hung with a heavy duty suction cup hook. It’s attached to the glass panel…like magic. πŸ™‚

  12. Love it Christy- so fresh and pretty but natural feeling. I am so excited to see a spring wreath post – that means spring can’t be far behind right? (as I look out the window at snow here… lol).

  13. Very light and pretty, and adds a breath a freshness, even with the snow.

  14. Lovely! Do you make your own bows?

  15. That’s beautiful! Happy birthday to your mama! Makes me itch for spring!

  16. Beautiful and easy! Love it! Pinning

  17. This is one of the prettiest spring wreaths I’ve seen. Great job!

  18. Simply exquisite! Love the fresh green apples and crisp white flowers! I’m pinning this one and I’m not ashamed to say I’m going to copy it for my front door! I am so ready for Spring this year and this will add some spring flair to my porch. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Christy, I really like the white forsythia you choose. I even like the photo where you just have two kinds of floral added to your wreath….add a bow or a cluster of apples and you could call it done. πŸ™‚ Of course I LOVE the finished product with everything…but surprisingly it was looking fabulous early on.

    I bet your mom was thrilled with her beautiful gift.

    Thanks for linking up your gorgeous wreath at Project Inspire{d}!!

  20. What a lovely wreath, Christy! I love simple design the best…. Always!!

  34. This wreath is so beautiful – I like how it’s just a little bit of bloom, and still a lot of bare brown – just like the season! I’ve featured this on our 1st Day of Spring Round Up –

    Took me a bit to get down here to leave my comment, you got quite a few. I’ll read them after I leave mine.
    Love your wreath for the simplicity and softness of color for spring, love the apples. Looks so pretty, loving it. I don’t have quite the kind of stems you do but will make do with what I’ve got on hand. Got quite a few more papery faux flowers at Habitat so using those. I go around taking things from other arrangements when the need arises if necessary until I can get some more. We live out in country few miles from available sources so I’ve really learned to make do, somehow the things I make turn out pretty well.
    Happy spring days pinned this also.

  37. Good morning, Christy,
    I saw your link at Inspiration Monday and just had to come see your lovely wreath! It’s perfect for spring – it’s bright, has texture, simple beauty. And I will never be able to make a bow that perfect! lol. Will you come hang one on my door too?
    So nice to find your blog. Have a great day.

  38. You spring wreath with the green apples is fabulous! The burlap bow is perfect with the apples.

  39. Love it!!! Featuring as one of my pics from Swing into Spring party! XXOO Christy

  40. I found this on a Pinterest board that had been share and thought it was pretty, I like the smaller flower stems used. Great inspiration!

    I would love it if you would like to share on my Friday Favorites.
    Hope you have a great weekend!
