Looking for a spring wreath idea that won’t break the bank – or send you into craft fail territory? Then this bicycle basket inspired spring wreath is the perfect way to go. See, I consider myself a lazy wreath maker… it can’t be too complicated or I’m just not gonna do it. But this one is easy peasy!
How to Make a Bicycle Basket Inspired Spring Wreath
- Hanging Basket (this one is from Ikea)
- Floral Foam
- Faux daffodils (this are from Walmart for $3 a bunch!)
- Ribbon for hanging
Y’all – this couldn’t be any easier. The hardest part was literally cutting down a huge cube of floral foam. Don’t buy the massive cubes that are all one piece – buy a couple of smaller pieces instead (and thank me later!) Fill the bottom of the basket with foam.
Also, cut your flowers away from the bunch so you have individual stems. Don’t throw out that greenery, though!
Stick about half the greenery in the back side of the basket, then cut apart some to tuck in between the flowers. Starting on the edges of the basket, work your way around and build upwards to get a nice, full arrangement. (Because no one want’s a sparse spring wreath!)
Tip: I found that leaving some stems longer and others shorter helped in placement.
Once the arrangement is done, loop a piece of ribbon through the basket, then hang on your front door. The whole spring wreath literally took minutes to put together – and not a single hot glue gun burn in sight!
