Spring Wreath with Bunting

Have  you decorated for Spring? It still feels like winter here, so I needed a little something to get me in the spring mood. This little Spring Wreath was just the trick! Its simple, pretty, and cheap to make. Just my style!

Spring Wreath

Bluebirds LOVE building nests on our front porch {last year we had 5 bluebird nests!} so of course, I had to incorporate a nest and eggs into my Spring Wreath! Add in some pom pom flowers and a cute washi tape bunting and I am seriously loving my wreath! The ruffly pom pom flowers are so fresh and pretty. They add a nice soft texture to the wreath.

You can see previous years’ spring wreaths here and here.

I found cute little plastic robin eggs for my tiny nest. I chose to use 3 eggs since I have 2 boys and a baby on the way!

Washi Tape Bunting

Washi Tape buntings are all the rage right now! What’s not to love about these adorable, easy to make buntings that go on about….anything?!! If you haven’t made one, use my quick tutorial below and whip one up today!

How to Spring Wreath

supplies: wreath form, teal fabric, white fabric, rotary cutter {optional}, hot glue, bakers twine or string, white felt, scissors, washi tape, mini nest, mini plastic eggs.

how to make wreath

1. Cut the teal fabric into 2″ wide strips and hot glue around the wreath form at an angle. Secure with hot glue at the beginning and end of each strip. When one strip ends, over lap it with the next strip and continue wrapping until completely covered.

How to Make Pom Pom Flowers

2. Cut the white fabric into 4″ squares. You’ll need approx. 15-18 squares per flower.

3. Fold one white square of fabric into fourths. {fold in half, then fold in half again so that its in the shape of a square again}. Hold the bottom corner with the edges of the fabric away from your fingers, as shown.

4. Using your scissors, round off the edges of the fabric.

5. Cut a small circle of felt {about 2.5″} and hot glue the rounded piece of fabric to the felt.

6. Repeat Steps 3-5 until you’ve gone around the felt circle. And it looks like this.

7. {not shown} Fill in the center of the flower with more pieces until the flower looks full to your liking. Then hot glue each flower to the wreath form along with the nest and eggs.

How to Make Washi Tape Bunting

1. Tear off approx. 2″-2.5″ pieces of washi tape. Put the bakers twine across the center of the sticky side of the washi tape.

2. Fold the washi tape over on top of itself so that sandwiches the bakers twine in the middle.

3. Grab your scissors and fold the tape in half and snip off the bottom to get either a pointy bottom or inverted point bottom, like mine.

4. Repeat Steps 1-3 until your bunting is the length you want. {I used 5 different rolls of washi tape for my bunting, but you can do however many you’d like.}

4. Tie one end of the bakers twine into a bow and then hot glue the bunting onto your wreath putting the untied twine end behind the pom pom flowers.

    It looks great Linda! I have a wreath with a birds nest and eggs up right now too. We have had weather in the 80s this week and I just want the 60s and 70s back for a little bit! I hate having an egg hunt for the kids on Easter and sweating my butt off!

    Love the wreath!! Where is the best place to buy washi tape?

    • 6.1

      Hi Alyssa,
      Thanks! I get my washi tape from Target, Michaels, and Pick Your Plum :)
      Thanks for stopping by!
      happy crafting,
      Linda

      • Alyssa says:

        Awesome! Thanks:) I went to hobby lobby and the two people I asked had never even heard of it, they showed me the printed duct tape!!

        • bahahaha that’s awesome!! Can’t believe HL hasn’t gotten on the washi bandwagon!

            Alyssa,

            I also had a horrible time finding Washi tape. The closest craft store we have here is Pat Catans and they never heard of it last spring. The nearest Michaels had only two roles of the ugliest patterns so I didn’t buy them. There even wasn’t any in the Martha Stewart section! That was a surprise! I mean, she has everything in her line of crafting supplies. Then I heard the Target had some and went there. They came through! Bough one of every pattern available. No orange. :( Not that it is my favorite color or anything; I just wanted some to complete my color pallet. Target had mostly solids, stripes and dotted tape. No florals or other patterns. I have recently seen some at Walmart. It can be found in the craft section and/or with the Wedding and Party supplies. Another place that had some (and I mean only a couple of rolls) was Staples. So keep on looking; you never know where you will find some. Good Luck!

            I know, I thought it was a bit crazy myself!!

          • Alyssa says:

            Thanks Maureen!! I will check out Target and Walmart first. I never thought those stores would have washi before the craft stores! I was actually at Walmart yesterday and never even thought to look there. I did see that there are etsy owners who sell them in their shops, but washi is something I’d like to see in person before I buy it. I did see the offer on pick your Plum a while back, but at the time I didn’t have a use for it, imagine that!! :) I saw a really cute pattern with birds all lined up on it, but I’m not just looking for something like that, just something fun and bright with a little teal in it. So I’ll keep my eyes open and check some of those other places. Thanks to you both for the info!!

    Linda,

    Love the Washi tape bunting. And the color/patterns you picked out go perfectly with the color of the wreath. I haven’t used any of my Washi tape yet. Keep buying and not using. :) Don’t know why; I’m up to three full antique blue Ball jars and have started a fourth. Went into Hobby Lobby on the first with my Aunt and found several rolls in the Clearance section. Bought one of each and never even looked in the Scrapbook area. FYI – the closest Hobby Lobby in nearly 25 miles away so I don’t go there very often.
    Congratulations on the baby! If I knew it didn’t register until now. When are you due and how are you feeling?

    Maureen

    P.S. Milkglass?

    How absolutely beautiful!! I’ve made those flowers before but I only used like 4-6 pieces of fabric (I created a hair clip for my daughter). I love how full these flowers are. And that fabric is gorgeous! It looks like it has small white dots? Pinning and sharing on twitter right now!!
