1 Spring Wreath 3 Ways

Spring is (finally) almost here but I must confess, I haven’t started ANY spring decorating yet – I’ve been having way too much fun with a raft of other projects. In fact, don’t tell anyone, but the OneandSeventy mantel is still sporting her winter white. With news of even more snow due this weekend, it does make me wonder whether I’m channelling the continuing winter weather.

Mental note to put AWAY the snowball lights.

My spring décor might end up being a last-minute dash this year, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me when I start posting those new projects.

In the meantime, to get us in the mood and encourage the return of warmer weather, I thought I’d share my spring wreath that so far, has had 2 makeovers. It’s amazing what a simple change can do and this is a great example of reusing what you have and shaking up your seasonal décor without spending much money.

Spring Wreath 1

Spring Mantel with DIY Spring Wreath and Spring Banner made on the Cricut

I started with a rattan wreath from Hobbycraft that I decorated with flowers and mini Easter eggs. The eggs are a kind of foam material, so very light and easy to attach. The finishing touch is a DIY spring banner, that I attached temporarily.

You can see how I went about making the wreath and the banner by checking out this very simple wreath tutorial.

Remember how I said the spring banner was temporary? Now you know why! Temporary fixings make life SO much easier when you swap out décor as much as I do!

Hence why I used so much Blue and White tack all over OneandSeventy, but that’s another story.

I made the new banner to celebrate the Spring Equinox but if you don’t follow the seasons astrologically, then Ostara might not be your cup of tea.

No biggie, you can spell out anything you want. Within reason, of course. “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” might be a bit long.

And not very spring-like.

For the third spring wreath, I went wild and left off the banner completely. Instead, I wrapped the wreath in a little green ribbon that I had left over from my May Day Maypole Wreath.

Easy peasy!

The eagle-eyed among you will have spotted it wasn’t just the wreath that got recycled. I also re-used the Ostara banner to decorate the milk bottles on the mantel.

And there you have it! Three super simple ideas for making your own spring wreath. Reckon you might try giving one a go? Drop a comment below to let me know. I’d love to see your photos, too. Come on over and share them on my Facebook Page, or tag me on Instagram.
