12 Wreaths For Your Front Door (one for every month!)
When I was doing some boring maintenance work on my blog I realized just how many wreaths I have made since I started Cottage On Bunker Hill!! OK, I most definitely have a year of DIY wreaths for you to make…
There’s something about January that makes everyone crave a calm and clean environment…probably because of how busy our homes feel with all the Christmas hoopla and lights!!
My Anthropologie inspired moss wreath is the perfect choice for January…simple and pretty!
It’s also super simple to make using a foam wreath form and a bag of mixed moss. It only took me 10 minutes to make.
SUPPLIES FOR MOSS WREATH:
There’s Also a YouTube Video for This One!
For a sweet wreath for February, I made this delicate Grapevine Heart Wreath. Instead of a premade wreath form I shaped a grapevine garland into a heart shape and filled it with dainty greenery and pretty pink flowers. (but of course, you could get a pre-made heart grapevine wreath and create a similar look)
Here’s my quick (under a minute!) YouTube video
One of my favorite wreaths is this Forsythia and Pussy Willow early Spring wreath. Forsythias are the first flowering shrubs here in New Hampshire and as soon as I see that first yellow bud I know that I made it through another New England winter!
This wreath tutorial is a reader favorite! It’s also a very easy one to make…it will only take a few minutes for you to make it.
One of my favorite details of this wreath was also a quick DIY…the bird’s nest was made with Spanish moss and spray adhesive, then I added the green moss and mini eggs.

Well, not exactly a wreath but a door basket is a fun way to change things up!! For Spring I hung this hanging door basket that I’ve had for quite a few years ( It’s from Antique Farmhouse and this basket is similar to mine).
I filled it with a few flowing greenery stems and a combo of yellow pansies and purple stems.
Here Are Some Spring Flowers To Fill A Basket:
- Yellow Pansy Spray
- White Pansy Bush
- Blue Mixed Pansy Bush
- Purple Wild Blossom
- Dark Purple Astrantia
- Hanging FIcus Bush
Here are 3 choices for hanging baskets to hang on your door from Antique Farmhouse.
This Pretty Spring Peony Wreath was a showstopper! Peonies are one of my favorite flowers and I was so happy to find artificial versions that were so vibrant and beautiful!
One reason it makes such an impact is that I started with a 24 inch grapevine wreath.
All the floral stems were from Michael’s Spring floral line, the new line of Spring florals was just released this week and I’ve updated all the links so you can make a very similar looking wreath for your door. Some of the floral choices I used aren’t available this year.
Choices for your own peony wreath:
- 24″ Grapevine Wreath
- Fuschia Peonies
- Pink Peonies
- White Billy Balls
- Pink Rose Spray
- Yellow Stems
- Pink Cabbage Roses
I’m going to admit that looking at the picture of my Mini Flower Pot Wreath is making me daydream about Summer and my garden!! I can almost hear the birds chirping…reality check it’s going to be 0° here in a few hours!!
I loved making this wreath…it was really fun to paint and put the mini flower pots on the wreath. This wreath hung outside on the gate entering my flower garden. It was just perfect!!
What You Will Need To Make A Flower Pot Wreath:
This Sand Dollar and Starfish Wreath is the perfect wreath for a coastal vibe whether or not you live near the ocean! My favorite place to be is strolling along the coast walking through the surf and looking for shells and sea glass. I’ve only found a few intact sand dollars in all my years at the beach though…they are pretty rare along the New Hampshire seacoast…thankfully there are plenty of resin sand dollars to use for crafting!
Supplies for Coastal Wreath:
- Angel Moss Wreath (craftoutlet.com)
- White Starfish
- Starfish Mix
- Sand Dollars(I picked mine up at Christmas Tree Shops, can’t find an online link for you)
This Wood Bead Wreath is perfect for that transition time between the waning days of Summer and full blown Fall. I made it with a couple pretty Fall picks but you could use picks from any season really.
It started out with a bag of unfinished wood beads that I had leftover from another project…you have to check out the clever way that I stained them!!
This was one of my top DIY posts last Fall…youn all really loved it, so thanks!!
SUPPLIES TO MAKE A WOOD BEAD WREATH:
Last Summer was an incredible season for all of my Endless Summer hydrangeas. I was able to harvest basketfuls of the beautiful blooms once they started to turn for the season.
The way to tell if your hydrangeas are ready to be harvested for drying is 1.) you will first notice that they start changing colors…going from vibrant blues to a greenish-blue color and 2.) When you touch the petals they start to feel papery.
The base for this Fall Hydrangea Wreath is one of the square metal wreath frames from Dollar Tree…grab them when you see them because they are hard to find!! I used 8 foam pumpkins and dried bunches of hydrangeas…a little hot glue and that is all it takes to make this beauty!
What You Need:
- Square Metal Wreath Frame
- Foam Pumpkins
- Dried Hydrangeas
- Artificial Hydrangeas (if you don’t have access to dried)
October Front Door Idea
Well, this was a satisfying DIY to make!! It started with a metal pumpkin form from the Dollar Tree and a set of buffalo checked beads (the set comes with all the different colors too)
This wreath could definitely be made with any color combination of wood beads… even more traditional Fall colors would look wonderful.
To finish off the wreath (and hide the glue at the tops) I used a combo of black & white checked ribbon, beige burlap, and a narrow white velvet and a bit of greenery.
Pumpkin Door Hanger:
- Pumpkin Wreath Frame (Amazon…but look at your Dollar Store)
- Buffalo Check Bead Set
- Black & White Ribbon
- Burlap Ribbon
Last year was an amazing year in my flower gardens…it was my first time growing a cutting garden and I was over the moon with how everything looked!! This Dried Flower Wreath was kind of a last hurrah.
I grabbed a big basket and my garden clippers and cut all kinds of flowers, greens, and berries…really anything that I thought would look pretty!!
We’ll finish up the year of wreaths with this Arhaus Inspired Jingle Bell Wreath. Using 3 different sized jingle bells that I spray painted different metallic shades really gave this wreath a modern look. This wreath made it to my Top 10 Posts of 2021 too.
