It is that time of year when I start looking for spring wreath ideas. This fairy garden wreath is perfect for spring and summer frankly. I love how this one turned out and I am sure you will as well. Grab your supplies and get ready to hang a fairy garden on your door.
Supplies needed for these spring wreath ideas:
- Patio Paint in Fern Green, Geranium Red, Cloud White, and Sunshine Yellow
- Wreath Form
- Chicken Wire
- Unfinished Fairy Garden Door
- Moss (2 types)
- Foam Ball
- Wine Corks
- Paint Brush
- Fairy Garden Miniatures (any that you love)
- Round Foam Brushes
- Serrated Knife
- Craft Knife
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
Start by making your mushrooms. Cut a styrofoam ball into fourths with your serrated knife. Paint with the red paint and then allow to dry. Cut wine corks in half with a craft knife. Paint white and allow to dry.
Once dry, add white circles to your mushrooms with a round sponge brush.
I also painted my wreath form in green. This ensures that you will not see any white if you have gaps in the moss that will cover the form.
Then you can paint your fairy door. I used a few coats of yellow on it. Be sure to paint completely especially if using this wreath outdoors.
Once your components are dry, you can begin to assemble your wreath. Start by using wire cutters to trim a piece of chicken wire to fit the back of the wreath. You may want to wear protective gloves for this step as the wire is sharp. Press the wire into the wreath form and use a bit of hot glue to secure into place.
Then use sheet moss to cover your wreath entirely. Use hot glue to secure.
Then you just start layering on your fairy garden elements. I used another type of moss on my wreath to really make it stand out. The miniatures you choose for your wreath are completely up to you. I used some clay pots and mini gnomes. Add on your mushroom pieces as well. Just secure everything into place with hot glue.
I also added moss around my door and in the window to complete the wreath. You can add as much or as little as you would like to your version. Spring wreath ideas are meant to be customized!
Once complete, all that is left is to hang it on your front door. Keep this one up all throughout the summer if you would like. Spring wreath ideas that transition to summer are my favorite! I hope y’all enjoy this fairy garden wreath and will make one for your home as well.
