Happy Wednesday, awesome friends! I sure missed ya’ll yesterday! I mentioned on Thursday that I would be posting a day later this week to join with some amazing bloggers today for a fun Summer wreath hop hosted by one of my favorite blogger friends, Krista from The Happy Housie!
It has been a while since I made a wreath for my front door, and I had fun with this one.
I usually try to find an old wreath at the thrift store for cheap that I can reuse just to save a few dollars because you know…I’m cheap, and I found just the one on clearance for $1.98:
In all its Fall glory it was.
Well good bye Fall, hello Summer!
This wreath cost around $30 to make and all of my florals came from Michaels.
And of course I’m going to share how easily this wreath came together!
I chose to stick with a variety of white blooms for my wreath this time. Here is what I used:
The first thing I did was strip the Fall flair from my wreath…
Then I started with the greenery stems. (I used two of them.) I cut them in smaller pieces to make them easier to add to the wreath, and then I just tucked them in place:
I did the same thing going in the opposite direction and then added the large white bloom in the center:
I trimmed the stem down to about six inches and bent it down so I could tuck it into the wreath securely.
Next I added mini roses from the small bouquet of them I found at Michaels:
I followed with the smallest white flowers (I used two bunches of those), cut into small pieces…
And that’s it!
You could hot glue everything in place if you wanted to, but there was really no need since all my stems fit snuggly in place.
I have it hanging on the glass with a command hook.
I chose the simple green and white color palette to blend with our porch…
And beyond the bench around the corner on our side porch, you may remember these pieces from our old outdoor set that I redid for this space last month:
You can see how I redid that set HERE if you missed it. (Those are super EASY DIY covers!)
Now it all coordinates!
I love making wreaths that have all the goods to one side…you don’t have to worry about it being even on both sides.
Not too hard at all, right?

I’ll be back tomorrow with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls sharing a simple fix for this broken cane seat:
See ya then! 🙂
UPDATE: No need to wait! See how I made this little chair functional again HERE!
