There’s no better way to greet your friends into your home than by hanging a spring inspired wreath on your front door. While there are many places you could buy these, you can also flex your creative muscles by making your own.

I’ve put together a simple tutorial on how to make a beautiful wreath using easy-to-find materials. You can also reach a middle ground between these two approaches by buying a pre-made wreath and later adding your own special touch with silk flowers, small figurines or ribbons.

For this project I began with a plain grapevine wreath (found at my local craft store), a couple of dried hydrangeas, silk fern leaves, preserved moss (from HomeGoods) and some teacups/tiny creamers (also from HomeGoods).

The first thing I did was glue the moss on the grapevine wreath using a hot glue gun. To create a more realistic look, I tucked the corners of the moss in between some of the branches.

After this was all dry, I scattered small bunches of hydrangeas and the fern silk leaves over the wreath and glued them down. During this process I made sure to leave some open spaces to later place the creamers in.

Next, I put some soil and small succulent cuttings from my garden into the small creamers. These plants are great for this project since they are drought-tolerant and will do great outside in a sunny area.

Using a craft wire, I tied the creamers to the wreath from the handles. To ensure that they were secure, I also used the glue gun on their backsides, careful to make sure these spots would not be visible. As a final aesthetic precaution, I made sure to cover these areas with more dried hydrangea bunches.

To properly tilt the creamers I placed the wreath in an upward position when hanging and gluing them. This helped me to arrange the tiny cups in a way that was interesting to the eye but wouldn’t cause the succulents to fall apart or come out of the creamers.

As you can see, this wreath was easy to make but still comes out looking well put together. While I’m happy with the design that I chose, there are endless possibilities to the accents you can add, such as small bunches of dried roses or clusters of plastic faux-fruit.
