Good Options for a Beautiful Wreath
There are so many great ideas for pretty spring wreaths to add to your home decorating. Affiliate links below.
Coffee Filter Wreath
One of my favorite creative wreaths that is also a beautiful spring craft is making a coffee filter wreath. If you do not want a colorful spring wreath, but still prefer something classy then this wreath is for you. While this DIY wreath is super simple, it is a little bit time consuming and requires a whole lot of patience.
Supplies for Making a Filter Wreath
- 1500 Coffee filters between the 2 wreaths
- 17" craft wreath - Wreath size is important so you get a nice big wreath.
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue
You can easily find these supplies at your local dollar store. Coffee filters are a pretty thrifty craft supply. Turn on your favorite show and get ready for this simple wreath that is perfect for any skill level.
How to Make a Coffee Filter Wreath
Center Your Pencil in a Coffee Filter
The first step to making this wreath is to take a pencil and center it in the middle of the coffee filter with the eraser side face down into the filter. Push the sides of the filter up onto the pencil.
Add Hot Glue
Take your hot glue gun and add a small glob of hot glue onto the pencil with the filter on the end. Immediately stick the filter onto the foam wreath form and press down.
Place Filters in a Tight Formation
Now listen up - because this next tip is very important as you move forward and proceed to glue on more of the filters. In order to get coffee filters in there nice and snug for a tight look, you need to put the filters as close to one another as you can.
Lift the edges of the filters you have already glued down and place the new filter right next to the last one you glued on. This is why the process takes forever, but believe me it is so worth it.
Pro tip: A great way to speed up the process is by working on two sides of your wreath. Hot glue needs time to dry. Instead of waiting for it to dry before adding another filter, you can simply alternate sides. Place a row on one side and then do the same thing on the next side. This will help to move much faster.
Continue to add coffee filters to your wreath until it is completely covered on the front and sides. Everything should be tight and bunched together. You will leave the back open.
A this stage you can leave your filter wreath as is, white and beautiful. But if you are like me, you can add in some bright colors or a neutral palette to make that lovely wreath pop even more.
Add Ribbon for a Spring Wreath
My favorite part of a coffee filter wreath is adding a selection of ribbon. But this trick is not limited to coffee filter wreaths. Add ribbon to your green wreaths or solid color wreaths too.
This is a super convenient hack for wreaths. Instead of purchasing a new wreath each season, keep your same wreath and then change it up by swapping out your ribbon decor instead. This is so much cheaper!
Cut a variety of ribbon strands for this step. You can choose to have a colorful wreath or pick neutral tones. I use roughly 10 to 12 different types of ribbon, depending on the style that I am going for. You can mix sizes and textures as well. Make each strand approximately 3 ft long because it will be folded in half.
Attaching the Ribbon
Bundle all the ribbon strands together and tie twine in the center of the ribbon. Make sure to have long tails remaining on the twine. This is what will be used to make the loop for hanging the ribbon.
Tie a knot to make the loop. Nothing fancy here. The easiest way I found to attach the ribbon to the wreath is to hook the ribbon on the wreath hanger as well. This makes it so much easier to change out for different holidays or seasons.
These ribbons add the perfect touch of spring colors to this gorgeous wreath. If traditional floral wreaths are not your style, try out this unique spring wreath made out of coffee filters!
Coffee filter wreaths are easy DIY spring wreath ideas that anyone can do with only a few supplies.
Artificial Flower Wreaths
Another option for easy DIY spring wreath ideas are artificial flowers. A popular spring flower wreath is a lavender wreath, a wildflower wreath, or a wreath with tulips. And while you can definitely make a faux flower wreath on your own, you can find several online or in store for decent pricing.
Wreaths don't always have to go on the door either. I placed my tulip wreath on a sign as an art backdrop for our bench nook. This is a fun and festive way to add a little more decor to your space.
Here are some of my favorite floral spring wreaths online.
You can also hang a wreath on a frame like this lovely spring boxwood wreath hanging on a gold frame. See the tutorial for how to make and preserve a boxwood wreath.
