Spring has sprung, and your home's décor should reflect that. Seasonal flower arrangements are one way to showcase everything this time of year has to offer; wreaths are another popular choice. This year, however, rethink the size of the latter: Displaying a tiny hoop filled with dried florals on your door knob—not front and center—is a fun opportunity to nod to May Day flower cones, which are traditionally placed on loved ones' door knobs on the very first day of the month. Best of all, making these iterations couldn't be easier. Just hot-glue dried blooms and grasses to mini grapevine wreaths, then leave them hanging on friends' front doors and dash. The long-lasting loops will delight your inner circle well after May ends.
