Simple Summer Burlap Wreath

I have been spending a lot of time working in our yard, and improving our home’s curb appeal.  And of course my awesome hubby has been helping out with the yard work.  We have been trimming, weeding, planting shrubs, and adding potted flowers.  I love the new look of our outdoor entryway.  I think that the new container garden that I created gives a very welcoming feeling and a colorful appeal.

n effort to dress up our front door.  I decided to make a wreath to place on the door, something that would reflect my own personal style.  I created a entire board on pinterest dedicated to wreaths.  Here is the link;  Wreaths.

First off, I did what any excellent crafter would do.  I took a trip to Hobby Lobby.  I should say a short trip to Hobby Lobby, a new store just opened only a short ten minute trip from our house.  Gotta love that!

DIY Simply Summer Burlap Wreath

What You Need:
A Spool of Burlap
A Styrofoam Wreath
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Wire and Wire Cutters
Floral Embellishments

Step One:
I wrapped the burlap around the styrofoam wreath, securing it with hot glue.
Step Two:
I twisted up a wire loop, poked it into the top of the back of the wreath, and secured it with  hot glue.
Step Three:
I decorated the front of the wreath, hot gluing on colorful daisies and green leafy accents.
Step Four:
I proudly hung it on our front door. ;o)

Our front door is officially ready for Summer!
Do you have a summer wreath on your front door?

  1. I love crafting with burlap. this would be a great project for my daughter and I to do together. It is very natural looking:)

  2. I don't have a summer wreath. This is a great idea.

  3. Very pretty--I like the burlap with the flowers. I don't have a wreath on the door right now--I have a patriotic heart.

  4. It's really pretty, Paula! And so is your door knocker ~ love it:)

    1. Thanks Cindy! I picked up my door knocker at one of my favorite local shops, Sarasota Architectural Salvage, they have all kinds of great old stuff. I know that you would LOVE the place. I hope that your new pad is starting to feel and look like home. ;o)
