Inside: Rain boot wreath ideas to welcome in spring or fall.
If you are like me, you like decorating your home for each season. This is a lovely way to make your space reflect your time of year while making it fun and festive. It also helps you feel more connected to the cycles of the year!
When it comes to spring, one of my absolute favorite ways to decorate my home is by adding a rain boot wreath to my front door. As the name suggests, a rain boot wreath is a door hanger that incorporates real rain boots into its design and flowers (typically).
It symbolizes the rainy season we are entering and the flowers that will come from it. If this sounds like something you would be interested in making, you clicked on the right article.
I created an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to make one of these yourself, along with a list of supplies you will need and where you can find them. So let’s jump in.

Adorable Rain Boot Wreath Ideas
Before you can even begin getting your craft on, you must gather some ideas. So I have created a little list to look through to find inspiration.
Not only are these absolutely adorable, but you can buy them if you aren’t feeling the DIY. Because not everyone has time to craft, but everyone deserves cute home decor.
So look through these, and if you are feeling crafty, take notes on the ideas you like!
1. Green Rain Boot With Flowers – These little Wellies act as the vase for the colorful roses. This is the perfect wreath for springtime. You can always use an old pair of boots, but always shine them up nicely. You could even use the little hoops that help to pull them on as the hangers. They were made for this.
2. Light Blue Rain Boot – Tulips are one of my absolute favorites flowers and for good reason. They scream spring. And if the flowers weren’t already loud enough, the super cute sign they added will finish the job. I love this design! If you are worried about making a sign, don’t be. I included links to some that you can buy online in the list of supplies below.
3. Large Flower Wreath – Yellow rain boots are the most iconic. My mind always goes to Coraline, but there are so many other nostalgic shows and pop culture references that these boots could symbolize. If you pair them with blue flowers and add little buttons… it would make for a great Halloween wreath.
4. Double Rainbow Trouble – If light blue is your thing, you must check out this idea. They used a huge bouquet over the top and offset the boots. This way, they cover more surface area and are more stable as the door opens and shuts. It takes a little more glue or twist ties, but it’s worth it.
5. Light Purple Rain Boot Ribbons – When I say purple rain, I am not referring to the hit song by Prince, but I thought it was funny. This wreath used purple ribbons with little photos of rain boots on them. Yep, they do have a ribbon pattern for everything.
6. Large Grapevine Wreath – If you have no idea what a grapevine wreath is, don’t worry. We’ve all been there. A grapevine wreath is a wreath that uses dried grapevine as its form base. It has a naturally rustic feel and can be spiced up in many simple ways. It’s one of my favorites.
7. Rain Boot Sign – For those of you who may need to use their rain boots, a cute sign that features a photo of them may be more up your ally. I get it! Plus, they won’t swing back and hit the door every time you shut it. Take a look at this example to see if you like this style.
8. Adorable Spring Wreath– This wreath is the saying, “April showers bring May flowers,” personified into decor. They added the boots (of course) and my personal favorite: a mini umbrella! It’s yellow and everything. This is too cute for its own good.
9. Simple Black Rain Boot – Bright colors aren’t for everyone, and that’s okay! If black is your style, use a black rain boot as your base. This simple wreath only uses one single boot, but I think it gets the job done nicely. What do you think?
10. Sparkly Rain Boot with Flowers – On the opposite of the spectrum, I know we have some color lovers out there. For you, the more color, the better. So take a look at this SPARKLY rain boot wreath. From the little bear to the flowers they chose…it’s truly a masterpiece.
11. Turquoise Tulip Wreath – I just had to include another tulip wreath. I can’t help it! I love how they used a turquoise boot to make the colors pop and come together.
12. Purple Plaid Ribbon Wreath – If you are a fan of plaid, then you should consider adding plaid ribbon to your wreath. Take this wreath, for example; the colors are so cute.
13. Cute Rabbit Boot Wreath – Easter is right in the middle of spring, so why not make this an easter themed wreath? You’d get to add a cute little bunny rabbit.
