If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how much I love making wreaths. They are my go-to craft project because of how easy they are. Plus you can make one for every season, and who doesn’t love a craft project that you can change out often?
I’m a little late on making a Summer wreath for my door, but since I was down and out with the flu last week I took that opportunity to make one. I wanted something with bright colors and since I’ve been on a beach kick lately I wanted the wreath to reflect that.
I had a few leftover accessories from the Memory Lamp I made for our master bedroom and thought that I could use some of it for the Summer wreath. I also reused a wreath base that I already had to keep the cost down. The ribbon I found while waiting for my oil change at Wal Mart, and I liked it so much that I ended up buying more in other colors for a just-in-case situation.
I’m sure my husband loves coming home to a pink wreath. While that color makes me feel happy and girly, I’m quite positive it does not have the same effect on him. However, he’s a trooper and is pretty much is okay with whatever I like. I’m pretty thankful for that!
While there are times I love elaborate and complicated wreaths, most of the time I like it when things are simple and understated.
What do you think?
Are you a fan of wreaths on your front door? Do you prefer to make your own or buy a pre-made one?
I love this! It’s gorgeous. I love making wreaths, too! I haven’t ever made one like this but I should try 🙂
Thank you! This is my favorite type of wreath. haha You should try it! I’d love to see what you come up with!
I made a wreath very similar to this. How did you get your C to stay on ?
Hi Heather. I used wire and tied it to around the middle of the C (it’s covered by the starfish) and then to the back of the wreath frame. And then, I used hot glue to attach it to different parts of the ribbon so it wouldn’t slide.
I love this! It is so cute!!
Thank you, Emily!!
