With mother’s day being right around the corner, what better way to celebrate than to make a simple, affordable spring wreath for a mother you know or with your children for your own home!
Having a daughter has brought me tremendous joy! She is the reason I became a mother despite being told I couldn’t have children. What a gift when I found out I was pregnant! Being the oldest of four girls myself, I was overjoyed dreaming of the days ahead. Imagining holding my baby girl, then eventually building a strong relationship and close bond with her! I didn’t have any doubt in myself when she arrived that I could nurture and care for her. I loved her before I knew her!
Watching her grow in to a young girl has been bitter sweet. She very much enjoys spending time with me and learning from me. However, I realize it won’t be long before she will be venturing on her own and tending to her own family someday. Of course, I am hopeful still to have a solid relationship with her as she grows up and moves away. I myself live far from my mother. Despite my love toward her, being geographically separated makes it difficult to have a closer relationship.
Knowing that she will soon grow up and have different interests and pave her own path is not a bad thing, but my mother’s heart wishes she could stay little forever and we could always spend time together.
That being said, I try to take many opportunities to include her and seek her opinion about things, especially if we can bond over it. I love learning more about her as she develops into a young lady and hear her likes and interests.
Needless to say, when I realized we needed a spring wreath for our garage door, I created an opportunity to spend time with her to make one! She was thrilled to make this wreath with me.
Let me show you how simple and beautiful this wreath is to make!
Materials And Tools For Your Spring Wreath
- 4 floral picks: ours were from Walmart for 97 cents each
- 1 wreath made of sticks: ours was from Walmart for $9.44
- 1 piece of Twine
prep time: 10 MINUTES
active time: 30 MINUTES
clean up time: 10 MINUTES
Time needed: 50 minutes
- Buy a wreath form and flower picks
We bought all our materials from Walmart.
Design your wreath in the pattern you like by laying the picks around the wreath form.
Once you have decided how you want your wreath to look, gently guide the wire stems into the wreath form.
- Hide the wires
Flip the wreath form over so that you can see any wire stems poking out. Bend the wire stems back into the wreath form so that no loose ends are sticking out.
Once you pick a location to display your spring wreath, you will need to measure how much twine it will take to hang it precisely. Cut a piece of twine to length. Tie the twine around the wreath. Then hang it on a nail or command hook.
Hang it up and admire your simple and affordable spring décor!
Notes For Making This Spring Wreath
If you are doing this project on a surface that is scratchable, be careful when placing the stems into the wreath. The wire could scratch the surface on which you are working on.
Let me know in the comments how you enjoy spending time with your kids! I’d love to hear your special moments!
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3
