These easy spring wreaths are made of grapevine, wooden letters, and artificial spring blooms. A little hot glue and imagination are all you need to create a few adorable spring wreaths.
Every year I go away for the weekend with two of my very good childhood friends. We talk a lot, laugh a lot, shop a lot, eat a lot, and sleep very little. Always soooo much fun.
Because it's late winter it seems like we are always looking for something bright and cheery for our spring decor when we shop. So this year one of them suggested I bring a craft idea to make and I thought, why not a cute floral wreath for spring?
I didn't want it to take too much time away from our time together. I also didn't want to make too much of a mess so I picked up some grapevine wreaths, silk florals, greenery, and a nice initial for each of us from the craft store.

How to Make Easy Spring Wreaths
The letters were made of particle board so I painted them ahead of time. Two were painted with white chalky paint and the third with acrylic paint in a midnight blue.
The white ones were also sanded on the edges revealing the brown underneath to give them a distressed look. On mine (the E) I added a little tinted wax.
I prefer grapevine wreaths to a foam wreath form or wire wreath form because it has many surfaces to glue things on, as well as lots of nooks and crannies that you can insert and use to attach the artificial florals.
We played around with the placement of our letter and then used a hot glue gun to adhere it to the wreath. Then we cut up the spring flowers in shades of blue, pink, and lavender and attached them to the wreath.
Who knew that such an easy project resulted in three pretty spring wreaths?
It was a nice sunny morning so we took them out to the porch to photograph and hung them, one at a time, on the front door.
The whole project took about an hour and was so much fun to make, especially with my girlfriends. You could add a ribbon such as a burlap bow to your new wreath but I think the letter monogram is the perfect touch.
Here's what my beautiful wreath looks like on my own front door. I love the airy feeling of the faux flowers on the dark wreath and door, and the softness of the chalky paint on the letter E for Estep.
It looks great on our front porch, however, I think this simple spring wreath would also look great on our mantel.
These pretty floral wreaths would be great ideas for an Easter craft or a girls' night out party activity, though really, anytime with friends and family is certainly a good time.
