I was looking for a new Spring Wreath DIY idea when I had a light bulb moment. Instead of working on a new wreath, I decided to update an existing magnolia wreath with these DIY Spring Wreath Ideas.
Therefore, instead of purchasing a new wreath or making one from scratch, I decided to update an older wreath and save a lot of money.
Here are the easy steps to create a new wreath by adding a few items. There are many possibilities, but I hope you like my update.

Spring Wreath DIY Update Ideas
To begin this project, you need a wreath. I have a magnolia wreath that I’ve used for several years. It’s still in great shape, and I prefer to use it primarily during the holidays.
However, I’d like to have a wreath that has a more spring-like feel.
You can use any existing wreath for this project. If you don’t have one, check with thrift stores and consignment shops because they usually have great deals on old wreaths.
Don’t let existing ornaments on an old wreath scare you! They are usually easy to remove, and if the base of the wreath is good, you’ll save a lot of money. You can find more thrift store tips here.

What Do You Add To Wreath?
To begin, I needed some additional greenery and wanted to add some individual stems.
However, once I saw the garland was on sale and realized it would be easier to work with, I purchased a eucalyptus garland at Hobby Lobby. Here is a similar silver dollar eucalyptus garland that would work as well.
It has the benefit of lush greenery as well as tiny buds for additional fullness.
How To Update Magnolia Wreath
Adding the garland was so simple and much easier than adding individual stems.
Just weave the garland in and around the existing magnolia leaves by lifting the leaves and securing the garland around the existing stems.
The garland was longer than the wreath’s diameter, and I considered cutting the excess off. However, in the end, I just continued around the wreath until all the garland was attached.
I love how full and fresh the wreath looks already.
Add Lemons to existing wreath
Next, I added several faux lemons to the wreath.
As I mentioned before, I didn’t want to damage the original wreath because I like using it as it is.
Note: If you plan to add weight to the garland by adding lemons or other heavy items, you must firmly secure the garland to the wreath base. I recommend using twine or twist ties to tie the garland securely.
Oops! Once the lemons were attached, the garland wanted to pull away from the original wreath.
As stated above, I corrected my mistake, but I recommend attaching firmly before adding the lemons.

Easy & Inexpensive DIY Spring Wreath Ideas
This was such an easy and inexpensive DIY Spring Wreath Idea.
Remember that you can substitute lemons for flowers or other fruit choices. Get creative with your repurposed wreath.
The additional items cost only $14.00 as they were on sale. Plus, I can remove the fruit and garland after the summer and still use the original wreath as intended.
In addition, it only took about 10 minutes to update a new Spring Wreath.
