Fresh Floral Summer Wreath

I am one of those people who had a wreath on her door, but it MAY have had Easter Eggs on it until recently. Yes, I know! I’m that neighbor. I don’t have a good excuse, except – 4 year old. That is my Trump card with all of the things that fall through the cracks from season to season.

I finally had time to break out my glue gun and freshen up the front door a bit this summer. I love the cool blues and pinks of peonies and hydrangeas, and the white initial just sets it off and balances the look. This easy wreath was hung by a simple burlap ribbon loop, and a few sprigs of boxwood hedge were sprinkled in for good measure.

To make the wreath, start with a grape vine circle in the size of your choice from a local craft store. I have linked some supplies below to make it easier for you. Any purchase will give me a small commission at NO additional cost to you.

Remove the heads of the flowers from their stems and remove the leaves to use for green filler at the end of the process. Lay out your design on the wreath to check the fit and balance before you begin to glue.

Glue your flowers in place using a hot glue gun. I like a high temp mini just so that it doesn’t take up that much space. Add your initial and glue into place to balance the flowers.

Cut a 6 inch piece of ribbon from your burlap roll and knot through the top of the wreath. Secure this loop in place with a double knot and a bead of hot glue.

Arrange the greenery into the top and sides of the flower spray to add some color, depth and height to the design.

All done! This was one of the quickest and easiest crafts I have done all summer. Virtually no mess and it only took about 20 minutes from start to finish.
