An easy and cheap way to update your front door! Use this DIY spring wreath tutorial to make a wreath that you can change flowers out for seasons.
My front door really needs to be repainted but it’s been raining so much that I need to wait a while for that project. So instead I decided to make a spring grapevine wreath to update the door a bit.
This is a super easy DIY spring door wreath to make that doesn’t cost very much either. The fun part of making your own wreath is that you can make it as unique and different as you want to. By using different florals, flower picks, monograms, or signs you can design your own one of a kind DIY spring wreath.

First I’ll show you quickly how to make a Welcome to Our Home Sign that you can leave up year-round or you can easily switch it out for an Easter or Christmas sign when the holiday season comes.
For the sign inside, I used a spare piece of wood I had lying around. If you are like me, and hoard all your wood scraps, this shouldn’t be hard to find! The wood I ended up using was an old fence board that I sanded down.
I’ve made so many DIY home decor signs using fence boards so I always try to grab some if I see them lying around.
I made the file in Cricut Design Space and then cut it out on vinyl with my Cricut. After I weeded it, I transferred it to the wood with transfer tape and brushed on some mod podge to seal the edges to prevent paint from bleeding under the vinyl since the wood was a little uneven.

After it dried, I brushed paint over it. After the paint dried, I peeled the vinyl off. Sorry, for some reason I don’t have pictures of this process but I have a lot of posts that I use this same method on.

Adding Faux Greenery to a Grapevine Wreath
For the spring wreath DIY, all you need is a grapevine wreath (I used a coupon at Joann’s and got it for $2-3!), a couple of artificial greens, spring twigs if wanted, floral wire, and cotton stems.
I ordered mine from Magnolia Market! It was the first time I ordered from the Fixer Upper store itself and they came in a lovely box all wrapped nicely with a thank you note for Chip and Jo.
I first attached the sign to the plain grapevine wreath. I put two nails in the back of the Welcome sign and tied wire around them and then tied it on the back on some of the branches of the wooden wreath.
I laid the flowers on top to arrange them how I wanted. I ended up putting one of each greenery, floral, and two cotton stems on each side towards the bottom of the wreath.
I put the two greens down first and pushed the stems into the wooden wreath and wrapped floral wire around it. Then I laid the cotton stems down and secure those also.
For the burlap bow, I wrapped a piece of burlap ribbon around the wreath first.
Easy Way to Make a Burlap Bow
I have always admitted that making bows is not a gift of mine! It’s always something I’ve struggled with and I have watched a ton of YouTube tutorials on how to tie them. I ended up finding a way to not even having to tie it!
For the bow itself, I cut out two pieces of ribbon and folded each side into the middle.
I used a zip tie and placed it on the bottom and then placed both folded ribbon face up on to it. Then pull the bow together with the zip tie.
I cut another piece of ribbon and folded it in an angle and put it on the bottom. These will be the wings.
Then I cut a small piece of burlap, folded it in thirds, and then wrapped it around the middle of the bow and angled ribbon and hot glued it on. (Sorry, hard to take pictures while I had a glue gun in my hand!)
I hung the grapevine spring wreath up on the back of my door so I could make sure the bow would be on straight. Then I just hot glued it on and trimmed the ribbon pieces at the bottom.
That’s it! On the red door, it went. I will be able to switch out the DIY spring wreath color accents every season so it will be used as an interchangeable seasonal wreath!
