Easy No Glue Spring Wreaths

My old spring wreath died in the garage this winter.  It was all dusty and smashed thanks to some big projects that went on in there, namely the mudroom shelves that my husband built for me--and I love the shelves--but the project killed my wreath.  So I had about 20 minutes max one day to throw together a new wreath and I actually ended up making 2 spring wreaths without glue.  I re-used flowers that I already had from other arrangements or projects.  I have a ribbon stash too that I could draw from.  Anyhow, I decided to show you my no glue wreaths because they were so EASY!  And maybe it will get your creative juices flowing so you can throw together your own easy wreath for your front door in 20 minutes.

No glue spring wreath number one.







This piece of heaven totally brightens my room.  I actually have it hanging on the inside because I love it so much.  The wall basket made it so easy to make.








I used a wall basket similar to this Rattan Wall Basket from Hobby Lobby.  Amazon also has some other styles of wall baskets that you could use.







Basically you just stuff your wall basket with flowers and arrange them nicely.  Taller pieces in the back, smaller pieces in the front.  Spread the bright colors evenly.  You can use artificial flowers like these or even natural branches and blooms.  






To keep the flower stems and branches from flopping forward when it hung, I added some floral wire just to hold them back a little.








Add a nice big ribbon.  Use what you already have around the house if you can.  Tie it tightly so it stays on for the season.  When you are sick of this arrangement, simply fill it with different flowers, add a different bow and then you have a whole new wreath!  

No glue.  Just easy.  And cute.  And bright.  And everything else.






This spring wreath brightens up my kitchen too.  I can't decide where to put it.








Here is no glue spring wreath number two.

And yes, my front door is salmon-colored.  I like to call it coral.  

I live in a neighborhood where all the houses look the same, so I had to liven our front door up.  








I wanted this one to look very natural.  I wanted the flowers to look as natural as possible and the ribbon to be soft instead of stiff.  Here it is blowing in the breeze.







I re-used my grapevine wreath that I have had forever.  It is similar to this one at Amazon.com.









I have used this wreath many times, including my Easy Valentine Wreath.   This wreath also used minimal glue and wire so I could easily reuse it again.





And here it is again in one of my earliest blog posts, back in the day when I was still called Pebbles & Piggytails.  Please no cringing at my high-contrast photography.








Anyway, simply insert your artificial flowers in between the grapevine branches.  Put an even amount on each side.  Tie a ribbon in the middle to finish it off.  I got these flowers from Hobby Lobby a couple years ago.  You can also find tons for artificial blooms at Amazon.com.










Best of luck in your crafty endeavors!  Have a blissful spring!
