Seven summertime wreaths for sunny days

Somehow, June slipped in the front door today, so it’s time to get serious about a summer wreath. I have seven summer wreaths to share today – some are new, some are blue, some are summertime twists on old favorites, and they’re all beautiful! (If you missed Tuesday’s tutorial, be sure to check out the Burlap, Twine & Butterfly Wreath, too.) Now, on to our DIY summer wreath roundup.

Yarn wrapped wreaths are super popular right now, and why not. They’re easy to make and you can dress them up for any time of year. For her summer wreath, Jody with Homey Home Designs shares a yarn-wrapped wreath in the prettiest shade of robin’s egg blue, and embellishes it with a bird’s nest.

Mary from The Tall Chick Blog made a Sand Dollar Yarn Wreath in a soothing shade of mint green, and mixed in twine for some yummy texture (and check out those twine spirals). And of course, what could say summer more than the sand dollar accents? The French paisley ribbon is perfect, too.

Do you love the smell of bed sheets that have hung outside to dry? Cassie’s wreath conjures up that image for me because she’s repurposed vintage bed sheets for a beautiful new look. You can see Cassie’s pastel fabric roses wreath at The DIY Club.

Miss Charming, who blogs at the Charming Zebra, put a different spin on her fabric roses wreath. Her version uses a collection of eye-popping, summertime bright fabrics.

A Gumball Wreath? Oh yes, and this one is painted in a soft blue, like the summer sky, with an orange chevron hanger for extra zip. You could have fun with this one and paint it any color you like (if spray painting, be sure your paint is safe for foam). Cassidy shows you how on the blog Fit Crafty Stylish and Happy.

Stephanie at Grinning Like an Idiot doesn’t have a traditional wreath – she’s made a long swag of bright, summertime flowers all in a row. With a little planning, I think you could change out your flowers for each season and display the flower swag year-round.

And finally, what says “summer” more than this Colorful Parasol Wreath made with cocktail umbrellas? Kathie shares that it took her less than an hour and just $11 to make it. You’ll find her tutorial on Friends and Finds.

What’s hanging on your front door? Have you already hung up your summer wreath, or are you ready to make a new one?

Happy crafting!
