Celebrate longer, warmer days and all the things we love most about spring with a beautiful seasonal wreath for your front door (or your balcony or solarium). Showcase the fresh greenery emerging all around and the first flowers that bloom. Whether you get crafty and make the wreath yourself, or buy it online or from a nearby Dallas store, you’ll have a cheerful splash of color at your entrance that welcomes you home and greets your visitors and neighbors.
One of the first plants to bloom each spring is Forsythia. This common shrub boasts eye-catching yellow flowers on its bare branches in early spring before its new leaves unfurl, and helps announce that spring has arrived. Why not make that same statement on your front door with this simple but elegant faux-Forsythia wreath from Target (2417 N. Haskell Ave.)?
A Succulent Wreath
Succulents are one of the most popular modern floral trends, and a faux or living succulent wreath makes a beautiful focal point. Purchase a pretty faux version at Pottery Barn (3212 Knox St.) or get hands-on and make your own living wreath. If you have a spot with bright, indirect sunlight, a living succulent wreath will thrive with a weekly soak in your sink or tub, and occasional misting. There are plenty of online tutorials showing you how to make and care for your wreath, and you can purchase the succulents at downtown Dallas nurseries such as Ruibal’s Plants of Texas (6630 Lemmon Ave.) and The Plant Project (2310 Routh St., Suite B), or your favorite florist, or home and garden store.
Tiptoe Through the Tulips
If you’re ready to make a bold declaration that spring has arrived, do it with a tulip wreath. You can find a faux-tulip wreath to match just about any decor or theme, as these iconic harbingers of spring come in a huge variety of colors. For something soft and feminine, this tulip wreath from your local craft store, JOANN (6330 E. Mockingbird Lane), features multiple shades of pink. Or opt for this stunner with more than 200 silk tulip heads in orange, red, and yellow from online wreath specialist, The Wreath Depot.
