Cute Spring Wreath

My girls and I made this really cute Spring wreath this week.  The weather here has been cold, dreary and we even had a dusting of snow.  Working on this little wreath helped us take our minds off the weather outside so we could daydream about the pretty Spring days that will (hopefully) be coming soon.  The best part is that it cost us next to nothing.  My only expense was the $1 wreath from the Dollar Tree, everything else I had in my craft room.  And those cute flowers?  They're made out of an egg carton!

My inspiration for this project came from
this gorgeous wreath by Krafty Kat.  As soon as I saw it, I bookmarked it in my "Things to Try SOON!" folder.  I loved how bright and colorful it was and that the kids could be involved in its creation.  However, I only had one empty egg carton, so I adapted the wreath to match what I had on hand.


  • foam wreath form
  • egg carton
  • acrylic paints
  • patterned paper
  • fabric strips or ribbon to wrap around the wreath
  • hot glue gun

1.  Cut apart your egg carton into 12 individual cups, then cut each cup into a flower shape ( I did a couple different kinds of petals.)

2.  Using your acrylic paints, paint the inside and outside of each flower.

3.  While your kids are hard at work painting their flowers (and it does keep them busy for awhile!), wrap your wreath with fabric strips or ribbon.

I cut 1" strips from a pretty green fabric I bought for another project.

Then wrapped it around my wreath, hot gluing it place.

4.  Next we cut some circles from patterned scrapbook paper for the center of our flowers and glued them in place.

We just used regular glue so the girls could do this step.

 5.  Then I got work gluing our flowers into place.

6.  Finally, I cut out a few leaves from some green patterned scrapbook paper, glued them in place and added a ribbon to the top for hanging.

I think the little leaves are a cute touch!
7.  And there you have it!  A gorgeous little Spring wreath to hang on their bedroom door.  ( Now I just have to come up with a "boyish" wreath for their brothers' door, any suggestions?)

What a cheery little decoration for their door!
