The past couple of years I’ve used a wicker wall basket filled with live plants on my front door for Springtime. I wanted something different this year, so I decided to make a spring inspired wreath using garden elements.
Let me show you how easy and inexpensive this Spring wreath is to make.
last Spring’s door decor
A woven wall basket filled with pink globe amaranth was the door decor I used last year.

I adopted her idea and put my own spin on it. Be sure and pop over and see how Rachel made hers too.
Come along, and I’ll show you how I made it.

I used peat pots for my wreath instead of terra cotta pots. Mainly, because I already had quite a few, and also because they are light weight.
I bought a sleeve for about $3.00 to start some basil seeds, and had some left over.
I painted the peat pots for my wreath. More about that below.
You will need a grapevine wreath, whatever size you like.
You will also need some moss. I used a bag of sheet moss, but Spanish moss will work fine too.
Twine is how you will attach the pots to the wreath and an ice pick or sharp tool to put holes in the peat pots.
painting the peat pots
First, I painted all of my peat pots with a coat of white paint.
I didn’t completely cover the pots, so this step was super quick and easy.
This is how they will look when you are finished.
After they dry, poke 2 holes in the side of them, and pull a piece of twine through. This is how you will attach them to the wreath.
assembling the spring wreath
I added sheet moss all the way around my wreath. I just tucked it in between the grapevine pieces, and it stayed just fine. You could secure with hot glue if you choose.
Next, I started adding my pots.
I pulled a piece of twine through the 2 holes I poked in them, and tied them on randomly around the wreath.
I left a bit of space between mine, but you could do them solid around the wreath, if you choose.
After my pots were secure, I added a bow made from a french script ribbon I had on hand, at the top.
I embellished the wreath with a couple of seed packets, dried hydrangeas and a birds nest.
The seed packets were hot glued on to secure.
I tucked the birds nests into one of the peat pots and the stem of the hydrangeas were randomly placed and hot glued into the moss.
This wreath turned out super cute and was very easy to make.
And I love that I didn’t have to purchase anything to make it. I used things I had on hand, and shopped my house for things to embellish it with.
I hope you enjoyed this spring inspired wreath DIY!
Let me know if you try one of your own, I would love to see!!
