Christmas isn’t the only time to hang up festive wreaths and decorations around your house. Usher in the cheerful springtime season by dressing your door with your own Spring Wreath. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Experiment with your base
A standard twig wreath works well as a good base for you to decorate for spring. You can always repurpose your basic Christmas wreath with new colors and accents. But you can also experiment with different items around your house. A basket with a flat side, a tin watering can, a foam wreath wrapped in wide ribbon, a wooden rectangular frame, a monogram letter, or even a pretty umbrella can all be easily hung on your front door for a whimsical touch.
Pick Pastel colors
When choosing accents and flowers to work with, you can’t go wrong by sticking to the basic springtime colors. Adorn the wreath with faux flowers and ribbons in pastel shades of blush pink, cornflower blue, mint green, yellow and lavender.
Channel the spirit of the season with springtime elements. Pretty flowers in bloom, berries, birds, nests and gardening tools are just some of the common items associated with spring that you can incorporate in your wreath.
Repurpose old items to decorate your wreath with a specific theme. You can make paper butterflies from old wrapping or scrapbook paper, or you could glue brightly colored buttons or colorful balls of yarn on the wreath. For an Easter touch, turn to Easter decorations like plastic easter eggs, bunny figures or small stuffed toys.
