Didn’t you love her showstopping spring wreath? She’s always coming up with the best ideas!

Cindy created the monthly Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop so fellow creatives could put their own spin on projects and ideas seen on Pinterest.

Our theme this month is “spring wreath” inspired by this gorgeous tulip wreath created by Kristi of Chatfield Court.

Decorating with Tulips…

Decorating with tulips always seems like the perfect way to kick off the spring season because they’re usually plentiful this time of year.

In fact, we used them in our spring home tour last year.

So, imagine my complete surprise when I walked into the craft store expecting to have plenty of tulip options and found next to none.

Truthfully, there were boxes and boxes of spring blooms lining the aisles.

But unfortunately, they hadn’t been unpacked yet.

And as I gazed at the partially filled shelves waiting for inspiration, I knew I was going to have to pivot.

Thankfully, I spotted a single bush of pink and white tulip stems and that’s when I decided to refresh an old spring wreath in our garage.

Here’s a look at how to refresh an old spring wreath in case you have one sitting around your house too…

Supplies to Refresh an Old Spring Wreath:

  • Old Wreath (premade store-bought wreaths in good shape work best)
  • Floral Picks
  • Greenery Picks
  • Floral Wire
  • Floral Wire Cutters
  • Ribbon, optional

Steps to Refresh an Old Spring Wreath:

Gather your supplies and make sure your work surface is free from dirt and debris.

This wreath is a few years old.

While it’s mostly in good shape, there are a few spots that could use a little fluffing.

I consider myself a beginner when it comes to making wreaths.

So, the first thing I do is to look for patterns to build around.

For example, this old spring wreath features 3 pink hydrangeas.

And since the only tulips I found were pink and white, I knew it would be easy to build around that color scheme.

Once you’ve found a spot, flower, or color to build around, use caution and care as you cut your flower stems.

I’ve found it easier to cut the stems to the same size as a traditional floral pick.

After you have the stems cut to the size you need them, again, use caution and care as the floral wire will be sharp as you secure the stems in place.

Continue to work your way around the wreath tucking and securing your flower stems to the wreath form until you’ve refreshed your old spring wreath as you’ve envisioned.

Next, add extra greenery picks if you need them.

Finally, add ribbon or a bow to your old spring wreath if desired.

Orienting Your Wreath…

Most premade store-bought wreaths come with a hook at the top to let you know how it should be oriented.

For example, this hook is in a spot that lets me know the flowers on this old spring wreath should be oriented to the right.

Just for kicks and giggles though, I decided to see what it would look like to have the flowers on the bottom, and it gives it a slightly different look.

I share this because sometimes we don’t hang wreaths like these on our front doors.

Sometimes we refresh an old spring wreath to use around the house or in vignettes.

After all, it’s nice to have options, you know?

How Long Does It Take to Refresh an Old Spring Wreath…

It took me about 20 minutes to refresh this old spring wreath.

For one thing, the existing wreath was in pretty good shape.

For another, I created floral picks out of floral stems which are a lot easier to work with if you’re a beginner like me.

So, if you want to decorate for the seasons but don’t have the space to buy a new wreath, consider refreshing an old spring wreath.

It will not only save you time but money as well.
