Follow along with Coach Fancy as she takes one of our spring subscription kits and turns it into something wonderful and uniquely hers with a few simple tweaks. This lovely spring wreath with purple flowers uses a new technique with poufs.
Hey, y’all! Today Coach Fancy is joining us to share a beautiful spring lavender wreath design that’s complete with lots of deco mesh, florals, and a beautiful welcome sign.
Coach Fancy is calling this a spring wreath because it feels fresh and colorful, much in the same way that we think of spring. It’s a design that uses a lot of soft lavender and light green and some creative techniques to produce a wreath with plenty of whimsy.
Normally we save the florals for grapevine wreaths, but Coach Fancy has a cool technique for adding them to deco mesh wreaths. I can’t wait for you to see it!
Let’s dive in and see how to make this spring wreath with purple flowers. I can’t wait to get started!

How To Make A Spring Wreath With Purple Flowers
For this project, Coach Fancy takes a page out of Coach Jordan’s book and adds poufs to this wire wreath frame to make it look full. Follow along with this step-by-step tutorial to see how to do it yourself!
Start by cutting your strips of mesh. Take the lavender mesh and cut (9) 22” strips.
Next, cut (9) strips of green mesh 22” long.
Take a mesh strip, curl the edges under, then squish it into the middle to create a ruffle. Insert it into a pipe cleaner on the outside of the wreath. Repeat this process all around the outside pipe cleaners, alternating colors as you work.
Then, repeat the same process on the inside row of pipe cleaners to give your wreath a good base.
Now we’re using Coach Jordan’s technique of adding poufs to help build out the base for our wreath with purple flowers even more.
Take the tan deco mesh and insert the end into one of the pipe cleaners on the outside row of the wreath frame.
Roughly measure your mesh out two pipe cleaners down on the frame from where it is tied. Squish the mesh back to the pipe cleaner in the middle and tie it in there to give you a pouf.
Continue this process all the way around the outside edge of the frame, measuring out two pipe cleaners and going back one before tying the mesh into the pipe cleaner.
Now it’s time to prepare the sign to add to our wreath before decorating with a bow and purple flowers.
This welcome sign is thick enough that we can just use a staple gun to add pipe cleaners to the back.
Position a pipe cleaner near one of the corners on the back of the sign, staple it, then twist it over the staple so that we can’t pull it out as we’re working.
Repeat the process in each of the corners of the sign. Then, use the pipe cleaners to attach the sign to the wreath frame.
Let’s make our bow!
Take the 4” ribbon, and, holding it loosely in your hand, make (2) long 18” tails and (2) 6.5” loops.
Next, take your 2.5” ribbon and make (2) 18” tails with (4) 5.5” loops. Offset the loops in this so that you can clearly see all the loops.
Grab the 1.5” ribbon and make (2) 18” tails with (2) 4” loops.
Wrap a zip tie around the center and pull it tightly to make the bow loops “pop.” Trim off the excess. Wrap a zip tie around the wreath frame in the top left part of the wreath and use it to attach the bow to the frame in that spot.
Now, those long ribbon tails from the bow have a job. We’ll billow them over the wreath design to open the sight lines and draw the eye over the rest of the wreath.
Take the tails from the 4” ribbon and the 2.5” ribbon and loosely pull them over the curls and poufs to tie them into a pipe cleaner at the bottom left part of the wreath.
Repeat the same process with the ribbon tails from the 4” ribbon and the 2.5” ribbon on the right side.
Dovetail the ribbon tails and use your fingers to curl the tails of the 1.5” ribbon.
The bottom part of the wreath needs a little more to brighten it up, so grab the 4” ribbon and the 1.5” ribbon. Cut 28” lengths of each ribbon.
Then, stack the 1.5” ribbon on top of the 4” ribbon and make a 5” loop, leaving 9” tails. Pinch the ribbons together at the bottom of the loop and insert them into a pipe cleaner at the bottom of the wreath.
Note: Make sure to twist the ribbon tails that are facing the wrong direction so that the pretty side of all the ribbons face the front of the wreath with purple flowers.
Now it’s time to add the florals!
Take the lavender floral stems and use bolt cutters to trim the smaller sprigs off of the large stems.
Then, take a sprig, add a dab of hot glue to the end, and insert it into the wreath. Sprinkle these springs throughout the entire design to add a lovely wispy element.
Next, take a variety of lavender flowers and use bolt cutters to trim the blooms off of the main stems.
Apply a dab of glue, then insert the stems into the design. I worked diagonally, but you could add them at random if you want something that looks a little less symmetrical.
Your wreath with purple flowers is now complete! Combining different types of lavender-colored florals makes this wreath design look fresh and ready to hang on the front door for spring.
Make This Lavender Wreath With Purple Flowers For Your Customers
Most of the supplies for this wreath came in a DecoExchange subscription box, which (at $65 with free shipping) is a steal. Coach Fancy supplemented a few of her own supplies (the green mesh and additional lavender florals) to create her own unique design, and I love it.
I also encourage you to take similar creative liberties as you make your own wreaths. Simply changing out colors, techniques, or patterns can make a big visual difference!

Spring Wreath With Purple Flowers
- Cut (9) 22” strips out of the purple mesh and the green mesh.
- Take a mesh strip, curl the edges under, then squish it into the middle to create a ruffle. Insert it into a pipe cleaner on the outside of the wreath. Repeat this around the outside of the frame and then again around the inside of the frame, alternating colors as you work.
- Now we’re adding some poufs.Take the tan deco mesh and insert the end into one of the pipe cleaners on the outside row of the wreath frame.Measure out a length of mesh equivalent to the distance of two pipe cleaners, then pouf up the mesh as you go back and insert it only one pipe cleaner away. Continue this process all the way around the outside edge of the frame.
- Prepare the sign.Position a pipe cleaner near one of the corners on the back of the sign, staple it in place, then twist it over the staple so that it won't pull out as you're working.Repeat the process for each corner of the sign. Then use the pipe cleaners to attach the sign to the wreath frame.
- Make the bow.Take the 4” ribbon, and make two long 18-inch tails and two 6.5-inch loops.Next, take the 2.5” ribbon and make two 18-inch tails with four 5.5-inch loops. Offset the loops so that you can clearly see the loops in the previous layer. Grab the 1.5” ribbon and make two 18-inch tails with two 4-inch loops. Wrap a zip tie around the center and pull it tightly. Trim off the excess. Use another zip tie to attach the bow to the top left part of the wreath frame.
- Now, take those long ribbon tails from the 4" ribbon and the 2.5" ribbon and billow them over the wreath design. Tie them into a pipe cleaner at the bottom left part of the wreath.Do the same thing with the ribbon tails from the 4” ribbon and the 2.5” ribbon on the right side.Dovetail the ribbon tails and use your fingers to curl the tails of the 1.5” ribbon and let them hang.
- Cut 28” lengths of the 4" and 1.5" ribbons to create a loop for the bottom of the wreath. Stack the 1.5” ribbon on top of the 4” ribbon. Make a 5-inch loop with two 9-inch tails. Insert the ribbons into a pipe cleaner at the bottom of the wreath.Note: Twist the ribbon tails as needed so that the pretty side of all the ribbons face forward.
- Let's add florals here.Using bolt cutters, cut the lavender floral stems off of the large stems.Then, take a sprig, add a dab of hot glue to the end, and insert it into the wreath. Repeat the process as you add sprigs throughout the design.
- Next, take various lavender flowers and repeat the same process as you add them to the design.
