Transitional Winter Wreath

So now that the New Year is here and we are still in the winter season what kind of decor do you use? Do you leave up your holiday lights until spring? Do you go back to just the same old everyday look? I still like to have a nice seasonal wreath for the decor on my front door! That’s where I got the idea for this beautiful transitional winter wreath!

Weave the grass like ends of the flowers allll through the branches of the wreath. I tried to have them kind of facing like they were moving up toward the direction of the top of the wreath. I didn’t want them looking just random but if you like that look do what you want!

Now is a good time to attach and small loop of twine to the back of the wreath where you want it to hang. Just loop it around a few branches and tie it off, place it on your wreath hanger and adjust it as needed.

Now, place the birds as you’d like around the wreath. They have a long wire in the back so it’s very easy to place and adjust to your liking. Hang your new wreath and enjoy!

I think this wreath is transitional because cardinals are a big symbol in winter decor and the small white flowers bring just a little hope of the spring to come!

I hope you liked this tutorial, it’s really not very hard now was it?!

  1. Great wreath! I was trying to think of something to make to bridge that winter gap, and was thinking of doing something for Valentine’s Day. I love how you used the cardinals to add color but still keep it seasonal. Thanks for the tutorial!

  2. This is really cute. I like to take my Christmas stuff down after New Year’s, but my house always feels so bare. I went with snowflake themed wreath to round out the winter.

  3. Thanks so much for this idea, I’ve been wanting to make a wreath for my front door, I really miss the Christmas wreath since I took it down. Pinning this for sure! I think I’ll go tomorrow and get the stuff to make this, I always get cardinals to my feeders, so this is perfect for me.
