Are you ready to make a gorgeous wreath for your door to welcome in spring, but need a great spring wreath guide to help you get started? From design inspiration, to supplies, to tutorials, we’ve got you covered!
In our opinion, wreaths were MADE for celebrating spring! With the world feeling like it’s finally unthawing, we all get the urge to crack open the windows, sweep off the porch, and hang something beautiful on the door to welcome back the sunshine, greenery, flowers, and adorable animals. This is the time of year to hang a wreath that will get noticed, as everyone is looking forward to seeing beautiful things after a long winter!
And with the UITC™ streamlined wreath making system, anyone at any skill level can make a spring wreath using fewer materials and less time than traditional methods. Let’s take a look at some of our spring wreaths and how YOU can create them using supplies and tutorials!

As part of our spring wreath guide, we’ve broken down all the supplies and materials you’ll need to get started on your spring masterpieces!
And yes, all of these materials and supplies can be purchased in our online shop!
It All Starts on UITC™ Wreath Making Boards
Every single wreath we make is built upon a UITC™ Wreath Making Board. This is the #1 essential supply for building a stunning spring wreath!
UITC™ Wreath Making Boards are the base for all your wreath making projects: They’re made entirely of 100% recycled plastic, they’re weather resistant, they can be reused, and they feature patterned holes to which you can attach all your materials. And yes, they’re easy and fun to use, and get you beautiful results every time!

Don’t Forget Your Zip Ties!
We recommend using cable ties, or zip ties, with all of our wreath making boards to attach your materials. You really can use any material you wish as long as you can zip a cable tie around it! Because this helps you use fewer materials, the wreath making process is much more cost effective and environmentally friendly.
Fill Out Your Wreath With Mesh or Other Materials
Once you’ve preloaded your board with zip ties, you’ll begin filling it with materials. Mesh, fun foam, felt, various types of fabric, and tulle are all great choices for filling out your spring wreath and giving it volume.
Each type of material requires a different method for working with it, and final look of the wreath also varies depending on the type of material you choose:
Though all these materials make beautiful wreaths, mesh is by far the most popular material for wreaths made on our boards as it’s the most versatile–both in types available (e.g. poly burlap mesh, value mesh, etc.), colours and patterns available, and in all the ways you can use it! Also, it’s easy to work with.
