How to Create Gorgeous Spring-Summer Wreaths For Your Front Door

Today I'm going to share with you how I created beautiful and very simple spring-summer wreaths for your front door. These could be used for either season, and they were so much fun to make. They were also very affordable and very easy. So let's go ahead and get right into it making a spring/summer wreath for your home.

This spring wreath for my kitchen is so incredibly beautiful, and it was super easy to make. I'm going to show you exactly how I did that.

First, I'm going to share where I got my items and what they are. This is some floral foam that I picked up at Walmart. Then, I'm using a few things that I already had. I had this garland with moss and some lamb's ear.

I didn't use the lamb's ear, but this is so pretty, and it makes a really wonderful filler. If you have some empty spaces in your wreath, you can just add little pieces of greenery, and this lamb's ear is really soft and subtle looking, so I really love using it.

Most of the florals that I will be using today are florals that I have had from years past.

I didn't go out and buy anything new except for those bright pink florals that you see right here. I picked those up at Walmart as well.

I'm going to start by laying my greenery down onto this piece of floral foam and to keep it in place, you can either use some hot glue or larger staples. I'm going to stick those in there. And they aren't going to hold the piece of garland on there as well.

It's just kind of keeping it from moving around while I'm adding my florals because once you put your florals into this foam, it will also hold that greenery in there for you.

Normally, if I have different-sized florals, I like to add my larger pieces first and then add in the smaller ones, like filler. But mine are pretty much all the same size today, so I'm just going to start by color first.

I wanted to start with all of the whites, and I'm just kind of evenly spreading the white florals throughout, and then I'll go with the other colors, like all the pink ones.

Last, I'm going to be adding in my lavender because they do look a little bit differently, and I wasn't sure how I was going to place those until I had the rest of my florals in here. This turned out so pretty. I love this. It was super easy and super quick, and I cannot wait to make one for my front door.

To attach this to the hook that I plan on hanging on the wall, I'm going to use some floral wire, wrap that wire around my wreath, and then create a little bit of a loop. It is that easy.

It doesn't have to cost you a fortune to make something beautiful, and quite honestly, you could probably find most of these items at Dollar Tree.

I know the white florals and possibly that lavender I did find at Dollar Tree. And I've also seen those wreaths there before. they are a little bit smaller, but again, you can just use your creativity and make it work. It does not have to cost a lot of money to do that.

I decided to leave the greenery and the white flowers that were already in here, so now I'm just adding the other white flowers that I purchased.

Then, I'm going to add in those really adorable strawberries.

For my door hanger, I am using a tin wall pocket that I found at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.

I'm placing some greenery in here next and then, I'm adding some yellow florals and some lemons.

I did end up taking some of those florals out and going with more lemons.

I wasn't going to use lemons this year in any of my summer wreaths, but I felt like they looked so incredibly cute here in this wall pocket that I'm using for my door.

For this last idea for summer wreaths for your door, I used everything that I already had before, mainly using white florals. I like to use a lot of whites in my home, which is why I picked the main color in this wreath to be white florals. I chose a couple of different types of flowers for that and then I'm using this peachy cabbage rose.

I really love to use some type of garland to cover the foam as well, and this works so well since you're not buying a bunch of greenery and sticking that in there. I placed a mossy type of garland over the top, so once you start sticking your florals in there, it will keep that from moving around. That way you don't have to worry about gluing it down or anything like that. I really don't like to use hot glue because I always take my wreaths apart and redo them anyway.

I purchased these white florals at Dollar Tree. I like to use their florals as a filler, so I'm just going to place these sporadically throughout the wreath first.

Then, I'm going to go ahead and use that same concept working through the rest of my florals.

And lastly, I'm going to use my bigger florals toward the end.

Here is how it all turned out.
