Countdown to Spring: Front Door Decor


Only 16 more days until the first day of spring!  I'm so excited to bust out some awesome spring green decor to cheer up my home.  I've been seeing some fab wreaths around the blogosphere lately and wanted to highlight a few of my faves. Each of the wreaths I found come with tutorials, so read the rest to grab the links and whip up some fabulous front door decor yourself!




Lucky Burlap Wreath with Flowers

Allie from Miss Lovie made this awesome wreath to get ready for St. Patty's Day. Not only is this wreath super cute but it comes with an awesomely detailed tutorial. The thing I love about this wreath is that it demonstrates how Allie is a crafting genius! 

Check this out: when she made the wreath, she attached the flowers with velcro so that you can swap them out for different doo-dads for different seasons and holidays. How freaking brilliant is that?! I love it!  It was a huge 'AHA!' moment for me to be able to do something like that.  Simple yet genius. Love it.

Make sure you check out Allie's wreath tutorial and send her some comment love here.



Grapevine Wreath with Scrappy Flowers
Jaimee from Craft, Interrupted made this super cute wreath from leftover scraps of burlap, lace, t-shirt and the edges of a dollar tree placemat! She shows great pics of how to make the different kinds of flowers in the tutorial on her blog.  Check her out and give her some love here.



Subdued Mossy Wreath
I love the beautiful muted colors of the "wildlife" that Courtney from A Diamond in the Stuff used on her wreath. It really looks great and gives a sense of subdued calm.  The aesthetic reminds me a lot of this birdhouse I made my dad for Christmas (but of course greener and more vibrant). 

She's got a ton more pictures and angles of this great wreath on her blog. Take a look at her walk through and scope out those extra pictures here.



Mossy Framed Monogram
This is another great find from Courtney's blog. She has her monogram and two mossy topiaries on top of a hutch inside her house but think the framed monogram would make a great wreath substitute for a front door (not to mention I need something cute to put on the bookshelf inside my front door and I am digging the topiary idea).

Check out at the whole look here.  The actual tutorial for how to mossify a monogram and put it together is here.

I hope you found a bit of springy inspiration among the blogs of the super talented ladies featured above!  Do you have plans for your Spring front door decor? Let me know and link up to pictures of your projects and inspiration as well!

  1. Hi Carissa! Thanks so much for including my wreath! How exciting : ) I LOVE the other ones, too. I saw Courtney's on a linky party last night and commented on it. I remember seeing the interchangeable wreath w/ velcro flowers, too and thought it was BRILLIANT as well! That moss wreath is just absolutely stunning. Beautiful! I'm honored to be among such great talent : )

  2. Thank you so much Carissa for featuring my wreath on your blog! You had such nice wonderful things to say, too! Very sweet. I love all those up there. I've already been ooh-ing and ahh-ing at that moss one earlier today. The other two are fabulous as well. Have a great rest of your weekend!
