Here’s a fun spring DIY project to create with your family and use from spring to summer. Wreaths have been classic decor pieces for front doors for many years, but this DIY turns wreaths into a decoration for your refrigerator! The best part?  You can customize these wreaths to suit your personal or interior design style. Take this project to the next level and use all real materials from the good old outdoors, rather than getting them at your local craft store.

What You’ll Need:

  • Mini grapevine wreaths (5-9”). These can be found at your local craft store, or if you’re lucky enough to have twigs or grapevine in your own backyard, use them!
  • Fake flowers from your local craft store. Real flowers can be used, although the lifespan of the flowers will not be as long.
  • Clippers.
  • Hot glue gun.
  • Multiple small disc magnets

Steps:

  1. Gather all the materials together. If you are using real twigs or grapevine, braid them into a circle and use the hot glue gun to stick them together.
  2. If you bought fake flowers, use the clippers to cut off the greenery  (stems and leaves), and lay out the design you would like on the wreath. Optional: add other spring decor like moss, grass, palm leaves, etc.
  3. Weave the flowers, grass, moss, etc. through the wreath. Use the hot glue gun to make sure they are secure.
  4. Use the hot glue gun and place a pea-sized drop on backside of the top of the wreath. Let it dry for 15 seconds then place the magnet on top. Let dry completely.
  5. Place wreath on your fridge, file cabinet, or other places around your home to brighten up your house for the season!

Other options for putting your own style on these wreaths is to spray paint the wreath white, or other bright colors. If you are going to make a natural wreath, you can make one for each season, mixing up the flowers and greenery as the seasons change. Wreaths are for more than just Christmas, make them all year around!
