Summer Wreath

A DIY Project

So it’s Monday again. I’m not sure how this keeps happening.. But we might as well make the best of it and get a little crafty!

I made this wreath a few weeks ago and it brings me joy every time I see it hanging on my door. I hope it also gives my across-the-hall neighbor joy as well. It is quite possibly one of the easiest projects that ever existed.

What you’ll need:
Foam wreath
Flowers or embellishments of your choice
Wire or glue gun

Start by picking a color palette. I just wanted mine to be summery, so I chose pinks and yellows and a few other bright colors. This looks best, in my opinion, when the ribbons are all different because it adds some texture and makes it a bit more interesting. Next, cut the ribbon between about 8-12 inches, varying the lengths. Tie the ribbons around the foam wreath making sure all parts are covered.

For the flowers, I used wire that I found in the faux flower section at Michael’s and wrapped it around the stems (I cut them leaving about 2 inches on the end). You can use butterflies or pinwheels or anything else you’d like. It’s easy to change for each holiday. I also tied some of the ribbon in bows and scattered the colors.

Next time I do this, I will buy more and thicker ribbon to make sure it’s a bit fuller. But this will do for now!

Good luck and send me pictures!
