Spring and Summer Wreath

Craft day with the girls for this past weekend was spring wreaths. After pinning many wreaths I decided to do a grapevine wreath with fabric flowers and a wooden letter so it combined aspects of various wreaths I liked.

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!

Linking up at these fun parties


  1. Emily, your wreath looks fantastic! I love the way it came out. I am so sorry I wasn't able to get you a picture of mine, but actually right now it is still just a plan yellow wreath on my door. I still need to finish it. Curious, How did you make the blue fabric flower? I think I need some like that for mine.

  2. Hi Danielle! I made the blue fabric flower using the same technique as I used in my pom pom necklace except I didnt use felt for the bottom, I just used a big fabric circle and instead of cutting little circles out I cut little squares out and pinches those in the center and hot glued them on. Hope that helps!

  3. The wreath looks fantastic. I love the colors. I would love it if you would come link this up at my Pinworthy Projects Link Party.

  4. I love a good makeover. I would love it if you linked it up to my new link party.

    Can't Wait to see what else you create.
