Add a simple touch of spring to your home decor this season with my oh-so-easy starburst forsythia wreath.
March is officially here and you know what that means- we all can start thinking spring! Who’s excited for warmer days, more sunshine and more green? I know I am. I’m so tired of looking at dead grass. So I got a jump on the new season arriving and already made a new spring decor item for our home. It’s a starburst forsythia wreath and it was so incredibly easy to make!
And that’s not all! I have a ton of inspiration for you today. I’ve teamed up with Krista from The Happy Housie and many other fabulous bloggers to show you a ton of beautiful spring wreaths! So before I show you those, let me show you how I made mine.
First things first, I gathered my supplies. Joann’s Fabric Store was having a great sale this past weekend so I purchased everything 50% off!
- 1 Wispy Grapevine Wreath – mine is 24
- 4 Forsythia bush stems – mine are white but yellow is also very popular in the spring
- floral wire
And that’s it – just six items for this simple wreath!
How to Make a Spring Starburst Forsythia Wreath
I started creating this wreath by curving the end of one stem slightly and then laying it on top of the grapevine wreath. Once I found my placement, I secured it with a couple of pieces of the floral wire.
Then I repeated those same steps with another stem. But this time, I placed the flower end over top of the stem end of the already attached forsythia. Basically my goal here is to not expose any of the plain stem end. I want it to look like one continuous wreath of forsythia blooms.
I worked my away around the wreath until I completed the circle with the forsythia. Then I adjusted the stems to cover any gaps or blank spots. And I used the flower blooms to hide any floral wire that was peeking out as well.
And that’s it! This may be the simplest wreath I’ve ever made. 🙂 To give you a better visual and help you see the details of this starburst forsythia wreath a little more closely, I placed it on the back of a door.
But really, I intended to place this wreath in our dining room. My mirror just isn’t the best place for you to see the details as well, with so much light reflection.
But once you see a view of the wreath with a little perspective of the room, I think it looks really nice in this room! And will add a nice touch to my spring tablescape I will be sharing tomorrow. 🙂
