Garden Hose Spring Wreath

Spring is almost here and I'm getting ready to be outside more!  One of the first places I like to start freshening up is our front porch.  I always like for it to look nice for when someone comes to our home.
I decided to make this Garden Hose Spring Wreath to add a fresh touch of Spring to our front porch.  The old shutter its hanging on stands in the corner and I always have some type of seasonal goodie on there.

There are lots of different versions of this wreath on Pinterest, but this is the one I ended up choosing for mine! Plain and simple.
This whole wreath cost me right at $10 to make.  I found the garden hose at Walmart for $6.97, the gloves and flowers at DollarTree for $1 each and the rest of the items I already had in my stash. You'll notice that I switched ribbons in the end.  The butterfly ribbon didn't really look good after I tied it on the wreath.
When I removed the packaging from the hose, I thought at first I could use the cable ties that was already on it, but the "wreath" was too small and too compact for my liking, so I cut off those ties and used my own. After I got the hose adjusted to my liking, I secured its shape with one 18" cable tie and trimmed the excess off with scissors.
Next I arranged my gloves and florals the way I thought they'd look the best on the wreath.
You can see here that I had already tied on my orange and white striped ribbon, but it wasn't enough to hold all the florals in place, so I grabbed a length of jute twine and secured it again a little higher up.
I tied it securely and made sure it was in the right place that the gloves would cover it up and not let it show.  I ended up adding a few dots of hot glue to hold the gloves in the exact place I wanted them.

I think it turned out cute and it already makes the front porch all fresh and happy looking.  Now I just need to make sure there is no more freezing temps and bring out all my plant babies to keep the new wreath company!

If you loved this project and want to save it for later, be sure to pin it to your favorite Pinterest board.  I have a Pinterest board all set up just for Wreaths and I'm pinning something new every day.


It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

  1. Very cute. We go thru so many hoses here on our place. I kept several and wound them up into a wreath. I used some old garden tools on it and it's out in the weather hung on the driveway side of our shed.
