DIY Wreath for All Seasons to Decorate Your Home
DIY Pampas Grass Wreath
Jump on the dried-grass trend and make it into a beautiful wreath for your home. It's as simple as you'd think to put one together, and there are as many ways to personalize it to your minimalist, maximalist, boho, or rustic tastes.
Use a 10-inch diameter for a huge wreath that will still fit on a single door, and a larger diameter if you wish to hang it on a wall and have more room to decorate.
What you need:
- 15 or more similar-sized pampas grass stalk heads (similar to these)
- 10-inch metal hoop
- Floral wire or 24-gauge wire
- Wire shears
- Airless hair spray (to keep it from shedding)
- Ribbon made of silk or cotton
It is to be noted that there are many kinds of pampas grass you can find online, it might be still fluffier than others as you order.
- Before you begin working on your wreath, thoroughly spray your pampas' grass plumes with aerosol hair spray to protect them from dropping seeds all over your flooring. Let them dry in an adequately ventilated area before touching them.
- Trim your pampas grass stem to leave a 3′′–4′′ stalk. Cut about 2 feet of wire and wrap it numerous times around the first stalk at the bottom of the plume. Wrap it numerous times around both the stem and the hoop to tighten it.
- Cut the second stalk and place it on top of the first. The bottom of the second stalk will stay in place much more smoothly if you fold it just beneath the hoop rather than on top of it. Wrap your wire many times around the stem and hoop.
- Continue to place the next stalk over the previous stalk until the plumes cover the stalks. When you run out of wire, cut another 2′ strands (for convenience) and twist it together with the end of the previous wire before proceeding.
- Continue to fill in the gaps in the wreath until there are none left. To attach the last plume to the hoop, you may need to raise the initial plume.
- Finally, fluff the sprayed plumes around the inside of the hoop to ensure they cover the stalks and wire. Wrap a 4-inch piece of wire around the hoop and twist the ends together to form a loop. This will serve as your hanger.
- You may declare it completed, add another layer of dried grasses, flowers, ribbons, etc., to give it a little more flair, or simply enjoy it as is.

DIY Spring Wreath
What you need:
- Base wreath
- Wool felt
- Burlap ribbon
- Felt balls
- Needle and thread
- Hot glue gun
- Wire cutters
- Pattern for a spring wreath
- Then, print the spring wreath design. Cut out your felt pieces using the design. Cut the wreath's branches using wire cutters and wrap the wreath's exterior corners with burlap ribbons.
- Begin attaching the leaves to the wreath by folding them in half and alternately alternating colors and positions.
- By hand or machine sewing, add contrasting lines to your cut carrot piece. Fold in half lengthwise and whipstitch up the back.
- Fill with fiberfill and seal the top with a running stitch and a tight thread. Using a chopstick, stuff the carrot top pieces into the little remaining opening.
- When you've hot glued the carrots and felt balls to your wreath, you're finished! For a healthy dose of cheerful spring joy, hang anyplace in your home or on your front door!
DIY Grapevine Wreath
What you need:
- 18-inch grapevine wreath
- Fresh flowers that will dry well (You can use one of a bunch of each of these: hydrangeas, Craspedia, seeded eucalyptus, marigolds, caspia, button poms, and pyracantha).
- Wire cutter
- Floral wire
- Trim the flower stems to around 5′′ - 7′′ in length. Select where you want your flowers to go on the wreath and attach the individually stemmed blooms first.
- The marigolds, Craspedia, and Caspia blended very wonderfully with the grapevine wreath shape. Instead of mixing them, grouping all of the same flowers together.
- Continue to add the remaining flowers and wrap the stems with floral wire around the wreath until it is completely covered. Wrap the stems of the flowers that have already been put to secure them even further.
Tips: To keep the flow of the flowers consistent, have the stems of the flowers all facing the same direction as you make your way around, placing the heads of the flowers on the stems of the preceding flowers.
Additionally, while dealing with hydrangeas, the petals should be fairly dry when you place them on the wreath. This is to prevent them got clump together and falling flat. Put them in a vase with fresh water. Make sure the water is covering half of the stems before you assemble the wreath.
The hydrangeas will be dried after a few days, after the water has gone, you can set them up for the arrangement you like.
