Are you starting to prep your Spring and Easter decor? Here’s an easy DIY floral cross wreath that’ll soften your entryway for the new season.

You know I love to have some fun with florals. All the colors, sizes, shapes, and seasonal varieties you can have just from flowers. Do you feel the same about flowers, or am I a bit crazy? And you know I love to celebrate all the holidays, even the made-up ones. You know the ones I am talking about, like, National Cupcake Day! Ha! Did you celebrate that this year… I had myself a classic chocolate with cream cheese frosting.

Simple DIY Floral Cross Wreath for Spring

Are you starting to prep your Spring and Easter decor? Here’s an easy DIY floral cross wreath that’ll soften your entryway for the new season.

Ingredients

  • Spanish moss

  • long grass greenery

  • floral foam

  • floral pins

  • any type of long grass bush greenery

  • hanging Gypso bush

  • Peony bush

  • Cherry blossom or peach blossom stems

  • Eucalyptus bush

Directions

  • Mount a rectangular piece of floral foam in the center of Twig Cross Base with 4 floral pins dipped in hot glue. Poke them from the back through the guts of the base.
  • Use faux moss to camouflage the foam piece. Hot glue in place as you wrap around the outer edges of your foam.
  • Remove some individual Wispy Grass Pieces and begin inserting individually, focusing them poking out from the top left corner and bottom right corner of your foam base.
  • Grab your Gypso White Flowered Bush and remove a strand from the main bundle. Apply the pretty strand and place a piece so it hangs from the bottom of your foam to add some whimsy. Set aside to use more later.
  • Grab your Pink Peony Bush and pin in place up top on your foam. Add a second smaller one facing towards the bottom right as well.
  • “Shake hands” with your Light Pink Wired Floral Garland and begin tearing off sections. Position the twigs and stems to the angles you want before inserting in place on your foam. Pin in place.
  • Twist those wires and florals to the proper angles as you place them.
  • Grab your Greenery Bundle and break it into smaller sections to add to your foam, creating a much fuller look.
  • Next, remove sections from your Soft Pink Mini Filler Flower Bush and work them into your design. Add pieces here and there poking out to add dimension and texture.
  • Going back to your Gypso Bush we used earlier, and remove a few pieces. With a long section, curl up into a circular bundle and pin in your foam with hot glue floral pin, right in the center at the transition point.
  • Stepping back and looking at your creation, add more flowers or greenery depending on what you need. Make it nice and full, especially since we aren’t adding a bow to this project.
