How to Make a Spring Farmhouse Wreath to Brighten Your Front Door

Your spring front door display will be the envy of the neighborhood!

Colorful flowers are a sure sign of spring, and after a dreary winter, we can't wait to decorate in bright florals. We'll show you how to make a farmhouse wreath to dress up your front porch for the season. You can use real flowers, but we paired faux blooms with a classic grapevine wreath to create a spring front door wreath that'll last for years to come. For a finishing touch, tie a pretty gingham bow around the handmade spring wreath. We picked a delicate gray buffalo check bow, but you can choose any color that coordinates with your flowers.

How to Make a Spring Farmhouse Wreath

Follow these simple how-to instructions to make your own spectacular spring farmhouse wreath. In under an hour, you should be able to complete the sweet wreath and hang it on your door.

What You Need

  • Faux large flowers
  • Assorted small flowers
  • Scissors or wire clippers
  • Florists wire
  • Grapevine wreath
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Buffalo check ribbon

Step 1: Prepare Flowers

While you certainly can make this wreath with fresh blooms, using faux flowers means you can hang the wreath up year after year—and the end result is just as pretty! We used faux roses, ranunculus, lamb's ear, peonies, and ferns, along with assorted small flowers. Use wire cutters to trim the stems on each of your faux flowers so they're just long enough to fit into the grapevine wreath (we trimmed ours to about 5 inches).

Step 2: Create Bundles

Once your flowers are trimmed, use florists wire to create mini bundles of mixed faux flowers and greenery. We only used 5-6 large floral bundles since we didn't cover the entire wreath.

Editor's Tip: Lay each bundle on top of your wreath form as you go, so you don't make more than you need.

Step 3: Wire Bundles to Wreath

When you've made as many bundles as will fit on your wreath, use florists wire to attach the bundles to a grapevine wreath. Layer the bundles over each other so that each bundle hides the stems of the previous one. Fill in any gaps by hot-gluing small sprigs of flowers and greenery to the wreath.

Step 4: Create Loop and Hang Wreath

To hang the wreath on the front door, create a hanging loop from florists wire and wire the loop to the back of the wreath. Add a bow made from buffalo check ribbon using more florists wire, then hang the wreath on the front door.
