5 Creative DIY Spring Wreaths

Spring is here, and if like me you want to celebrate the seasonal change without growing (and then killing) a garden, a spring wreath may be the answer! Indoor or outdoor wreaths serve to brighten things up all year round; they're not just for the winter holidays. Below we will look at five creative springtime wreaths that you can make yourself (and that don't require daily watering!).
This wreath looks so polished and intricate, and you can fully customize it to your favorite spring-time color. If you don't have any acorns, you can also use beans, Jordon almonds or pistachio shells. Be sure to bake your acorns after you wash them to ensure it keeps til next year!
Much like the acorn/nut/bean idea, but it doesn't require any painting! Split peas may call up The Exorcist for some, but I think this lovely shade of green is perfect for spring.
This project is perfect for extra scraps of fabric, and is a great way to show off any especially spring-y patterns or colors (pastels, bunnies, polka dots, the sky's the limit!).
I am not a fan of eating peeps, but I am a fan of their cuteness! This project is the perfect balance for those who don't care for their taste, but love their look. It also works great for those who love their taste, since there are sure to be a couple of extras! Other candies like those blue robin's egg Whoppers would be cute too.
While not strictly for spring, this wreath idea means breaking away from the traditional circle shape. Represent your family's name with pride, or even write out a word. I would love to experiment with other shapes too, like a spiral or a simplified fleur-de-lis.
