Hi friends! Are you looking for a fast and fun Spring project? This project can be made quickly and inexpensively using a 10″ wreath form from the dollar tree. You can use this same method to make larger wreaths as well, you just need a bigger Styrofoam wreath form if you want to do that. I recommend that if you are doing this with kids (it would be a great classroom or Sunday School craft) that you stick to the 10″ wreaths because it won’t take as much money, supplies or space to make. Why is Styrofoam so expensive anyway? Probably because it is an ecological nightmare which brings me to the other great thing about this project, it is all put together with straight pins so you can easily undo and redo it as many times as you like so you can keep reusing it season after season and not feel bad for your Styrofoam consumption.
I mention the wreath size because you are not going to gain a lot of bulk on this wreath. This is the same size form I used for my Christmas bauble wreath (glue method) but that one ends up being much larger because you are adding chunky ornaments all around it. This wreath pretty much ends u the size of the form so if you want a door size wreath you will want it bigger. Just measure before you buy:)

You can find most of the supplies you need at the dollar tree and you can order online and have it shipped for free to your nearest store. This is handy because my store often runs out of the good stuff:) You must buy 4 wreath forms if ordering online though so you might try my Christmas Bauble wreath or split the order with friends or make some to sell at a craft fair! It is still cheaper than one wreath form at the craft store! Look at your own craft stash to see what you have that will work on a spring wreath before buying new, if you need supplies I have shopped around and found decent prices on the basics.
