Every spring I love to decorate my home for the season and I often have a go at making my own DIY Wreath.
This particular idea is actually one that I shared last year over on Kenarry.com (where I am part of the creative team).
As it is still one of my favourite (and easiest) projects I thought I would also share it here with you guys.
DIY Modern Spring Wreath
- 24″ Polystyrene Wreath
- String or jute twine
- Some Raffia or straw
- Mini Plastic Bird Eggs (real eggshells will work too)
- Floral Pins or a Hot Glue Gun
Secure The Twine
Tie the end of the string around the 24″ Polystyrene Wreath (knotting it securely at the back)
Cover The Wreath With The String
Wrap the string evenly around the wreath making sure that it is tight enough and that there are no gaps.
I found because the wreath is smaller on the inside, the string can start to slant. I corrected this by adjusting it every sixth wrap and allowing it to overlap on the inside.
Once you have completed wrapping the whole wreath, secure the string at the back and make a loop so that you have something to hang it up with.
Make A Birds Nest
To make the bird’s nest just grab a handful of the Raffia or straw and shape it into a ball. Cup it in one hand and use your fingers on your other hand to make an indentation.
Securing The Nest & Eggs
The plastic eggs I used to make my spring wreath already had wires attached so I was able to just poke them through the bottom of the nest and then push them back up to secure them.
I then used double Floral Pins to secure the nest onto the polystyrene wreath.
Alternatively, you can do these steps with a glue gun.
The Finishing Touches
To finish your wreath off, tuck a few different-sized feathers into your nest
I personally love how mine turned out using neutral colours but you could really play with this idea and make it using brighter colours.
I think pastel colours would also look lovely this time of year.
I’d love to hear what you think about this Modern Spring Wreath Idea, so please do leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.

You sound just like me, so many projects waiting in the wings.
The next furniture flip that I have planned is to transform a little old-fashioned dark wood vanity table for my daughter’s room. Although I’m still not entirely sure as to which colour or what type of paint would be best for this project.
