If you had to choose your favourite part of spring, what would it be? Personally, our very favourite part of the seasons changing and weather getting warmer is that all kinds of beautiful flowers start to bloom all around us. Different kinds and colours sway in the breeze, which smells sweet and pleasant thanks to the fresh blossoms. Where we live, however, it gets very hot in the spring very quickly, and the summer is only warmer from there, so only certain types of flowers survive the season long. That’s why we’re such big fans of making faux floral crafts and DIY projects for our home! What’s our favourite type to make, you ask? Well, we’ve made all kinds of things with fake flowers over the years, but lately we’ve been particularly big fans of making our own spring flower door wreaths and flower boxed for our windows.
Just in case you’re as interested in the concept of springtime floral wreaths and window boxes as we were, here are 15 awesome designs, tutorials, and inspirations to get you started on making some of your own!
1. Twisted branch wreath with side flowers
This might sound predictable because it’s such a common way of making wreaths, particularly spring and summer ones, but our very favourite way to make a spring themed door wreath is by twisting pliable branches (fake or real, depending on what you have access to) together into a pretty ring. Once you’ve done that, there are almost endless possibilities for adding a floral element! We adore the way Afloral used little peach and pink blossoms on a base of leaves to cover one whole side, leaving the other side clear branches for contrast.
2. Twisted branches with flowers filling the lower half
Do you really like the idea of creating at twisted branch wreath and covering only half of it, but you can’t help but feel like covering only one side of the circle, regardless of whether it’s left or right, makes the project look unbalanced, even though you like the half exposed idea where the twigs are concerned? Then perhaps flipping the way you’re looking at things will help! The way Live, Love, DIY chose to cover the bottom half of their wreath with lovely white blossoms is the perfect example of what we mean.
3. Dual coloured tulips wreath
Half floral and half branch wreaths are beautiful and all, but what if you’re feeling especially cheerful and you just can’t help wanting more of a flower element than a half covering allows? In that case, we feel like this full tulip idea featured on Hometastrophe might be a little bit more up your alley! We love the way they’ve chosen two different colours in the same kind of flower to create some subtle depth. Bright yellow and white are a colour combination that practically screams spring.
4. Basket and bird’s nest wreath
Even though you did start out your DIY search today looking to make a door wreath, are you somehow still hoping to find something a little more unique than the more classic styles we’ve shown you so far? In that case, we think this adorable spring basket tiled to the side to sit against your door just like a wreath might be a little more up your alley! Take a look at how Karen Lidbeck-Brent filled theirs with moss, pussy willows, pansies, and even a little faux birds nest with a feathered mama bird looking on from one of the branches.
