This is a great DIY summer wreath. It screams “Summer!!” with the bright colors against a white wreath base but it also portrays being fun and festive. What else can you ask for in a summer wreath for your front door?
It’s very simple to make. I’m not going to share a tutorial but it’s simple to figure out.
I found unpainted wooden doilies at Michael’s Craft Store for $3 per package, with 6 wooden doilies in the package. I bought three packages and came home and painted them using colors that my oldest daughter picked out of paint I already had on hand in my craft room. I just told her I wanted fun and bright colors.
The wreath was an old grapevine wreath I had picked up at garage sale for $1 that had seen better days. The flowers on it were pitiful and the entire wreath had a fine layer of grime. So I ripped off the flowers and I spray painted right over the yuckiness. You cannot tell that it was gross at one point, it just looks clean and white.
I took my time arranging the painted wooden doilies in a pattern that I would like and then simply hot glued them straight to the wreath.
A wreath such as this is safe for a covered area outdoors but the wooden doilies would probably warp if they got too much rain on them.
However the wreath cost me $10 and it looks like a million bucks!
Don’t you just love those doilies? It’s fun, bright and festive, the perfect addition to our front door this summer.
