Summer Wreath

I made a cute summer wreath a while back and I realized that I never posted about it. It was really easy and I think it turned out bright and sunny!

I was at Hobby Lobby one day and found a roll of fabric and thought that I needed to find a craft just so I could buy it. So I decided that it would be cute to use for a spring wreath. Then I made it and decided it was more of a summer colored wreath. You know...those seasons call for two totally different styles of wreaths! :)

Here is what I used.

 I cut each strip of fabric into three equal pieces and then just tied each one randomly around the wreath form.
 I'm not "country" so I didn't want it to look too "shaggy".  It's right on that boarder though.  I think it screams FUN! I just love the bright colors! I actually have the ribbon over the top of the door and clipped with a magnet on the top of the inside of the door.

Please excuse the look of our front door.  Yes, we have lived in our house over a year and have not yet filled in the holes or painted over the markings from the old owners' door knocker. The front door is a big part of our 2011 Outdoor Project (You can actually see the wreath in the pictures of that post). I am currently taking suggestions for a new color for the door (and shutters too).  I want something fun since our house is a boring white. Here's to good curb appeal!! Happy crafting:)

Soooo sorry it has been SO long since I've been to your blog. :( I need to sit down...SOON...and catch up with you! :)

I must say that sweet Adalyn is adorable and getting so big! Wow! Sometimes I feel like you just had her.

I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the wreath! I might have to get creative and try something like that for my door. It needs some FUN on it right about now!

Hugs :)
