What is it about doors that makes them always look so bare without a wreath?
Do you recognize that feeling? That your house is not a home when your door is lacking a proper front door wreath?
I think that after Christmas, the season that most calls for a little sprucing up of the front door is spring.
The quickest and easiest way to make a spring wreath for your front door is using a bare DIY twig wreath that you can decorate with silk flowers. Twig wreaths are the easiest wreaths to decorate with and to customize to your style and liking. The bare wreath is a great base and holds decorations easily and without fuss.

How to make a spring wreath for your Front door
This particular pretty spring wreath is so easy to make. The base is a simple twig wreath. You can buy a bare twig wreath to decorate or make one yourself from your garden clippings. I have used a ready-made one in this post, but I have also used and re-used my homemade twig wreath many times in my home decor.
The beauty of a twig wreath or a grapevine wreath for that matter is that they already look good bare. The natural look of bare twigs is pretty in and of itself. But they are also so easy to customize. You can stick greenery and faux florals in between the twigs, use hot glue to add foliage and blooms to the wreath and morph a plane old wreath into a colorful wreath, that will have your neighbors ask where that stunning wreath came from.
And it only takes 30 minutes from start to finish.
Let me show you!
How to make a Spring wreath with silk flowers
With the base covered it is time to add some flowers. At the dollar store, I found some faux stems with silk flowers that look a bit like daisies, and also had lovely green little leaves. I bought three twigs and cut them up into smaller pieces.
I love the look of a floral wreath on my front door in spring. After all, spring is the season where everything starts to sprout and it is full of the promise of new life.
So my DIY wreath had to be full of flowers. The little white daisies with the yellow heart are sweet and a wonderful contrast to the dark twigs, and together with the green leaves, these vibrant colors make the wreath pop.
I think twig wreaths are the champions among wreaths because they are so easy to customize and you can use them throughout all the seasons. No need for floral wire, just push your flowers in between the twigs and they will hold beautifully.
How to Hang your Wreath on the Front Door
My front door has a big window where the wreath needs to go, and it is a fiberglass door so nails are out of the question.
I resolved the question of how to hang a wreath on my non-wooden door a long time ago by investing in a whole bunch of command hooks. I have the small ones for lightweight wreaths and the heavy-duty hooks for when I hang my super large pine cone wreath.
For this door, I prefer using clear command hooks. The hooks are reusable, all I have to do is buy some new command strips from time to time when I fear that the weather has dried out the glue of the command strips.
Oh, look at the details of my outdoor spring wreath. Don’t those flowers just jump off that wreath! In close-up, you can see that those faux stems even have some small berries too.
This is true craft love for me. Buy a ready-made wreath in the sales, add some cheap dollar store flowers, and together – like magic – they become handmade pieces that are truly unique and look like a million bucks.

I like to keep my door wreath hanging for a pretty long time, so using faux flowers is the best choice for an easy DIY wreath.
This silk flower front door wreath is no exception. I put it up for spring, and I have the suspicion that it might still be hanging there – and looking good – well into summer.
The front of the house has moved into spring, a new spring wreath is hanging on the door and…
All is well in my world.
