I wanted this to be a spring and summer wreath so I chose fabric colors that would work for both. I made some rosettes, yo-yo's, a new spin on the pom-pom using squares instead of circles, and gathered burlap flowers from the tutorial here. I arranged them all to my liking and hot glued them to the wreath. The green ribbed yo-yo is from an old Old Navy tank.
I had just purchased a wooden L in a scripty font for the wreath at the same time I bought a much bigger L I plan to hang in our bedroom. I debated for awhile on what color for the L but finally landed on yellow and it looks great with the green door. I painted it with some craft paint and hot glued it on.
I let it sit for a little bit and I hung it on the door. I really like my new wreath and I think it will be perfect for all spring and summer long with the exception of may be putting out a patriotic wreath (if I make or buy one) for a little bit of July.
If you are looking for a cheap and easy wreath, this is a great project. I had all the fabric/burlap on hand so I just had to buy the 18 inch wreath ($2.50 with Michael's coupon) and the wooden L (about $3.50 ordered online).
Danielle did a similar type wreath to mine but spray painted her wreath yellow. Katie did a fabric scrap wreath which uses a wire wreath where you tie a bunch of fabric pieces around to your liking.
Then she made a cute mini spring bunting to go across the middle. Nice and colorful!
Hope you enjoyed seeing the results of our craft day!
