Looking for a DIY spring wreath to adorn your front door and chase the winter blues away? Here's a super simple DIY spring wreath with an Easter egg twist! This is part of a blogger DIY challenge - check the links at the end of this post for more beautiful DIY wreaths from my friends! (Read more about the challenge below).
I don't know about you, but at this time of year, I'm ready to chase the winter blues away by diving into spring decorating.
The weather here is typical for this time of year. We call it 'Four seasons in a day'! We'll start out with rain, which turns into snow. Then, the sun will make a tentative appearance peaking through the snow clouds, wondering whether it should stay. A few hours later, we're dressed in t-shirts and basking in the sunshine!
How's the weather with you? Same?
Right about now, I'm thinking about all things spring décor. I'm ignoring the snowflakes drifting past my window. Instead, I'm getting all crafty and thinking up ideas for decorating my home for spring!
Did you see my spring home tour? I and 30+ home décor bloggers shared our ideas for spring home decorating. That was such fun!
So when I found out about this month's 'Blogger DIY Challenge', I couldn't wait to get started!

Here's how to make a DIY spring wreath
A QUICK REMINDER: When attempting any DIY project, please take care to undertake the necessary safety precautions. You should always follow the manufacturer’s safety recommendations when using any product or tool. When following my instructions for a DIY project, you are doing so at your own risk.
Step 1 - add twigs
Tie the dried twigs to the wreath base.
Step 2 - Add Eucalyptus garland
Tie the Eucalyptus garland to the wreath, over the top of the twigs. My garland had a loop at the end so I made sure that was at the top so I could use it as a hanger. If your eucalyptus garland does not have a hanging loop, you can easily make one once your DIY spring wreath is finished.
Step 3 - Tie on Easter egg garland
Add the Easter egg garland. I added mine to one side. Tie the end of the garland to the centre of the wreath at the top. Tie the garland in intervals until you reach the bottom centre of the wreath (or as far as it will go).
Step 4 - Glue on eggshells
Using the glue gun, position the eggshells on the wreath as shown in the photo below and glue them into place.
Step 5 - fill eggshells with moss
Fill the eggshells with moss
Step 6 - Glue ribbons to wreath
Cut a length of each of the ribbons and burlap. This will depend on how long you want your ribbons to hang down. I cut mine at approx. 40cms/16" (Burlap). I cut the other ribbons a little bit shorter. Glue the ribbons to the wreath.
Step 7 - Glue decorative heart to wreath
Use the glue gun to add a decorative heart to the front of the DIY spring wreath over the top of the ribbons.
Step 8 - Hang your wreath!
That's it! Your DIY spring wreath is finished! See how easy it is to decorate your front door and make it more inviting for spring?
I recently painted our front door and added a slate house sign. You can read those posts on the blog too:
