There are so many fun ways to decorate your house for springtime. And, of course, since Easter happens in early spring, it shows up as a theme in many of my craft projects.
How to Make a Spring Wreath
After a long winter, I am looking for something bright and colorful for my front door. In Vermont, our spring flowers tend to happen closer to the end of April. So, a wreath is a wonderful way to add color to the front of our house until it warms up a bit.
What do you need to make a spring wreath?
- Bunnies (these are similar on Amazon)
- Carrots (these are similar on Amazon)
- Hot glue gun
You can get these artificial flowers at Dollar Tree. They are super affordable. I have seen so many cute Dollar Tree spring wreath projects.
The bunnies and the carrots come from Hobby Lobby. So, if you don’t have one in your area, you can pick up whatever Easter decor you find at Dollar Tree and use that in place of the bunnies and carrots.
I like to repurpose our grapevine wreath over and over again. Have you checked out my apple grapevine wreath yet?
What size wreath do I need for my front door?
For a standard front door that measures 30 to 36 inches wide, you will need a wreath that is about 18 to 26 inches. Of course, that’s only a guide.
The grapevine wreath used in this project is 18″ wide. If you have something about that size, it will work fine.
How do you decorate a grapevine wreath in the spring?
This wreath has rabbits and carrots for an Easter theme. But, you can easily use any type of spring flower including tulips, daffodils, or forsythias. Or, you can use any type of artificial flower that is in spring colors like pink, yellow, and purple.
I have also seen some adorable plastic Easter egg wreaths that are very festive especially if you have younger kids.
How do I hang a spring wreath on my front door?
I have an over-the-door wreath hanger on my front door. Then, I just take a piece of rope, string, or twine and make a loop on one end. I fasten the look on the hook and then pull the string up and over the door. Then, I tie it tightly so it doesn’t fall.
Is this an outdoor spring wreath?
I wouldn’t want to expose this to the elements. The rain, wind, and snow would probably destroy it or at least damage the artificial flowers and the fabric accents.
This type of wreath works best on an inside door. So, if you have a storm door over your front door or an enclosed porch, this would be ideal.
What can I use instead of rabbits and carrots?
If you can’t find these cute fabric rabbits and carrots, you can find a small bird’s nest and an artificial bird like a robin. Or, you can simply add more greenery in that area of your spring wreath to fill it out.
Other popular options include a large burlap bow, pair of toddler rain boots, or even a pair of garden gloves and a small trowel. Just think what things remind you of spring and use those.

- Hot Glue Gun
- Wire Cutters
- Glue Sticks
- wire cutters
- Using the wire cutters, cut all of the stems leaving about 3 inches
- Next weave the stems into the grapevines (depending on where you live you might want to use some hot glue to have the flowers stay better)
- I alternated the pink and yellow flowers
- Using hot glue, add a few strips to the carrots and then add on top of the pink flowers, I did two carrots on the bottom and then the one on top
- Next add a generous amount of hot glue to the wooden bunny and add to the grapevine wreath filling in gaps with the hot glue to make sure that it adheres to the grapevines
