An easy 3-step DIY spring wreath for your front door. This lovely wreath will add instant color and curb appeal to your home!

Every time I design a new wreath for our front door, I have two goals in mind. I want it to add curb appeal, so it needs to be big enough and bright enough to be seen from the street. I also want it to offer a wow factor when someone walks up to our front door. Because of our blue front door, hitting both of these goals can be tricky. Many times, my wreaths look beautiful up close, but from the street, they fade into the door.

Not this time! This 3-step DIY spring wreath looks great from the street, and even better up close, plus it was also one of the easiest wreaths I have ever put together. Read on for the very simple directions.

3-Step DIY Spring Wreath Supplies Needed

Step 1: Determine how much eucalyptus garland is needed to go around the circumference of the wreath. Trim the garland. Attach it to the wreath with florist wire in 4 or 5 places.

Step 2: Insert the ranunculus stems into the wreath at 2 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 8 o’clock, and 10 o’clock. No wire is needed.

Step 3: Cut the berry stems into smaller stems if needed. Randomly insert the berry stems in between the ranunculus.

That’s it! Three easy steps and in no time at all, you will have a lovely wreath to welcome spring to your front porch. Before I hung the wreath, I took a few minutes to wash my front door, and blow off the porch. I couldn’t believe how much better it looked, and how much better I felt after it was finished.

The final touch to this spring front door area is, of course, a new doormat. When I saw this bunny, there was no doubt in my mind that it would find a home on my porch!

    Lovely front door display! I don’t have a covered porch. How do the berry sprays stand up to the elements? Being in New England weather I have to be careful what I put out there.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Janice…the berry sprays that are styrofoam don’t hold up well. But if you can find berries that are plastic, they would work much better. Good luck!

  2. Your wreath is so beautiful. I’m going to try and make one. Blessings to you

  3. Teddee Grace says:

    One of your prettiest wreaths!

  4. Beautiful, Ann! This is the wreath that will be gracing my front door this spring. This will be the 5th spring one of your fabulous wreaths has brightened our front door, your creativity never ceases to amaze me. I always receive so many compliments on my seasonal wreaths, all thanks to you. This spring, all of us need something bright and beautiful to add a spark to our days, thank you for helping me find a spark. Be blessed.

  5. Lovely. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly a wreathe comes together once I have decided on the components. Not glueing the flowers in lets you reuse the components if you chooose to, also.

  6. That is beautiful! And doesn’t sound too difficult. Do you mist the flowers or replace them as the season goes by or just allow them to dry out on the wreath?

  7. PERFECT! That was in my head & now I will be successfully attaching that beauty to my door. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your gifts with us Ann.

  8. What a pretty wreath! I’ll have to give this one a try.
    Your doormat is adorable!

  9. I love your wreath.
    Awesome job
    You have inspired me to try and make one as well. So I thank you for that. I am still learning how to make wreaths.

    Hi Ann,

    What size wreath did you use. It looks larger than 20″. How many white stems did you use?

    The wreath is just so beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Your wreath is totally gorgeous and the doormat goes so well with your door colour. Love your style!

  12. How lovely, Ann! You’ve inspired me to finally try doing my own wreath!!

  13. I love wreaths and this one is spectacular. It really pops against your beautiful blue door. I’m still trying to convince my husband to paint our front door this color. Alas, we have a storm door and beautiful full wreaths like this one won’t fit between the front door and the storm door.

      I have the same set up. I used a command hook and hang my wreaths on the outside.
      Follow all directions on the command hook for success. Mine has been on for two years.
      Happy Easter Decorating!

      1. I don’t have a covered porch. I’m afraid it would get ruined in the wind and rain. I just have to make thinner ones that will fit between the doors. Thanks for the suggestion though. I appreciate it.

  14. Beautiful,I love the whole look, the doormat is adorable !!

  15. The wreath is AMAZING! May need to make one!

  16. It’s really pretty and cheerful. What size grapevine did you use? I’d love to try and make one.

  17. I love your wreath (and fully intend to copy it!) but what I really want to know, is what’s in your porch planters? Is it real or fake? I need something green for spring but I don’t know that anything is even available for purchase yet in Michigan.

  18. I love the use of garland as the base for a wreath. I own not less than 10 wreaths – all hanging in the basement. For my spring wreath I stripped an older large grapevine wreath. I bought an adorable garland of birds nests and eggs with greenery from Michaels – on sale – as my base. So easy to attach and it set the theme for the rest of the wreath. I had previously bought a pretty good sized twig house and large bow so it was just a matter of filling in with daffodils. My driveway is over 100 feet long so I make sure the wreaths are oversized – what’s that saying – go big or go home.

  19. I think your new spring wreath is just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

  20. What are those greens in the front porch pots? I’m looking for something to get me through until I can plant when it gets warmer.

    1. Lovely, and I adore that doormat and the planters with the boxwood! Do you know the source of the planters?

      1. Ann Drake says:

        Hi Cali, I got the white planters at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. They aren’t technically planters, so I had to drill holes in the bottom for drainage. They are no longer available. I wish I could be more help!
