Let’s make an easy birch twig spring wreath. While out for a walk after a few days of strong winds, I couldn’t help but pick up a ton of birch twigs. There’s a large birch tree in our neighborhood on the path to the beach—a walk after the heavy winds led to armloads of freshly fallen twigs from the ground.
Today, I am joining eight blog friends and we all have a different take on spring wreaths. I think you’ll find something that suits you!
You’ll find links and photos at the end of this post! As always, thanks so much for stopping by today!
Sure, I could buy them, but knowing this tree exists just around the corner makes it too tempting not to forage! No one minds, It’s not like I’m cutting limbs. I am simply picking them up on the ground.
The Supplies You’ll Need:
- birch twigs
- some small spring bulbs like Muscari or daffodils
- mini quail eggs
- florist wire
- round cake pan
What to forage and what to buy:
- Birch twigs can be found, or store-bought is excellent too.
- Moss – I live in Connecticut, where moss grows everywhere, but store-bought moss works beautifully!
- Small bulb plants are easy to find at the grocery store, Trader Joe’s, or the nursery. You only need a couple. You may even have them popping up in your yard.
- Some mini eggs like these from Terrain.
Here’s how you make an easy spring wreath with foraged birch twigs
First, prepare your birch twigs
- Prepare your birch twigs – Submerge them in water for at least an hour to soften them so they don’t break when forming them in a circle.
- Use a round cake pan to help form your wreath into a circle.
- Take the branches and form them into the edge of the pan, adding more inside the pan until it’s as complete as you want.
- Secure the wreath with florist wire in a couple of spots to keep the shape intact
- Add a sheet of moss at the bottom and secure it again using the florist wire.
- Nestle in a few quail eggs and bulbs (Use a little hot glue if necessary)
- Add a piece of twine, rope, ribbon, or frayed canvas and hang it outdoors.
Hang outdoors in the early spring.

Make mini birch branch wreaths for jars
I made mini birch branch wreaths to top clear glass jars with a few hellebores from my spring pots. They add just the color we needed in this corner.
