A summer wreath is a wonderful way to spruce up the entryway of any home. These can be quite inexpensive and very easy to make. I have a wreath on my front door just about year round and swap it out for each holiday and change in season. Check out to make your own DIY Summer Wreath!
A Fun & Easy Summer Wreath
- Pool Noodle
- Duct Tape
- Fishing Line
- 12-13 Yards of 1.5″ ribbon
- Felt or pre-made flowers
First, start with a pool noodle from the dollar store; connect the two ends with duct tape to make it a wreath form. A little tip: tie some fishing wire between the top and bottom of the form. Pool noodles aren’t as rigid as normal wreath forms so they have a tendency to sag after a while. Once the wreath is on the door the fishing line will be invisible.
Next, wrap the wreath in some ribbon. The pink ribbon I used was a 12 yard roll. It covered the wreath with exactly enough; however, if I had wrapped a little tighter (more overlap of the layers) then I would have been short and had to start another roll. I used a glue gun to attach the end of the ribbon to the wreath. I wanted to use a coordinating color for the loop so I cut about 12 inches off of the turquoise roll and glued it to the back of the wreath.
Now comes the fun part, decorating the wreath! If you would like to make your own flowers, use this tutorial for some easy felt flowers. For this wreath, I opted for some pre-made ones. The felt flowers are gift toppers from Target and the fabric ones are in scrap-booking section of JoAnn’s. I simply used my glue-gun and attached them directly to the wreath. I am excited that summer is finally here and glad that my front door now looks summery as well.
