DIY Spring Wreath with Crafty Creatives

DIY Spring Wreath with Crafty Creatives

We love subscription boxes, and we have been fortunate to review quite a few in the past. The most recent ones have been for the kids, but it’s always nice to be sent something just for me to indulge in. So I was particularly pleased when Crafty Creatives sent me one of their boxes which contained everything I needed to make a DIY Spring Wreath.

I have reviewed a Crafty Creatives box before, it was a kit to make a really cute autumnal felt garland. That’s what I love about these boxes, the crafts are very diverse and often have a seasonal edge to them.

Sadly I don’t get a huge amount of time to just sit and do crafts on my own, but over the weekend I sat down whilst the kids were happily playing outside and got to work on my DIY Spring Wreath. Everything I needed (and much more!) was in the box, so I got crafting and I was rather pleased with the finished result! So if you’d like to make one yourself read on for the full tutorial..

What You Will Need for Your DIY Spring Wreath

  • Half rounded polystyrene ring
  • Orange ribbon
  • White ribbon
  • White lace ribbon
  • Green and pink raffia
  • Yellow pom pom
  • Yellow pipe cleaners
  • Pins
  • Glue gun

How to Make Your DIY Spring Wreath

  1. Wrap half of the polystyrene ring in the orange ribbon. I used my trusty glue gun to secure the end of the ribbon to the back of the ring, and carefully wound the ribbon around it.
  2. Wrap the other half with the white ribbon in a similar fashion.
  3. Wrap the lace ribbon over the white ribbon overlapping the orange ribbon slightly.
  4. Then wrap the green coloured raffia around the white section, concentrating more on the centre of the section.
  5. To make the large flower, wrap a few strands of pink raffia around your fingers a couple of times. Then tie a piece of raffia around the centre. You will need two of these for each flower.
  6. Pin the raffia bunches to the wreath, and spread them out to make the petals. Use pins to keep in place.
  7. Glue a pom pom to the centre of the flower.
  8. To make the smaller flowers, just simply wrap the raffia around 2 fingers to make smaller bunches. You could then use smaller pom poms for the flower centre, or I used a small piece of pipe cleaner coiled up.
  9. That’s it, simple but effective DIY Spring Wreath.
