This Mint & White Winter Wreath is the perfect way to add a pop of color to your porch during the winter months. Easy to make & ready to display in about 20 minutes.
I love having a wreath on the front door. It just seems so plain without one, especially when I take down all the holiday decorations & things are clean. So there is that time between Christmas & Valentine’s Day when there really isn’t a holiday for a wreath, but I still want something on the door. I decided to take some supplies in frosty winter colors & create a simple & non-holiday specific wreath to add some beauty to the porch. The best part is it only took me about 20 minutes. Check out this Mint & White Winter Wreath that will make you swoon!.

Here are the supplies… white grapevine wreath, hot glue gun & glue sticks (Christmas gift from my son – I was super excited to get to use it), burlap ribbon, silk flowers, white floral twig pieces, mint embellishments. I always pull out way more than I actually use. Sometimes I just like having it there just in case I decide to use it, but often times I change my mind or use it as meerly inspiration.
I gathered up my ribbon – didn’t actually tie it in a bow, but I gathered & added a piece of twine where my fingers are to secure together. (Please excuse my craft table- it is in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint)
I gluded the bow onto the wreath like this.
Next, I snipped pieces off the bundle of white feathery whisps & started gluing them in until it was as full as I was hoping for. This is really all personal preference & there is no wrong way to do this.
Because I had some of these cute mint embellishments left over from my mint & blue Christmas decor, I decided it would be perfect to add a little to the wreath. I just slid them in where I thought they looked good & added a little glue to secure.
The final step was to add the flowers. I had originally started with cream flowers, but it was giving me a fall vibe, which obviously wasn’t the season I am trying to decorate for. So I pulled that off & added these mint flowers that were just the perfect pop of color. Again- just a dab of hot glue & press until cool & secure.
Mint & White Winter Wreath
I love how this looks on my door.
It’s always nice to do something bright since our door is dark brown. If you have a white door, I might reverse the colors here & do a mint wreath with white & cream ribbon & floral pieces. Just a different way to really make it pop against your porch colors.
It’s exactly what the porch needed to brighten it up.
