SUMMER is Knocking on My Door!




Okay, so those of you that are faithful followers here know that I love to change up my grapevine wreath. 





Well the summer weather is just around the corner (it was 82 degrees here today!), so I thought I'd change it out again.  I made a quick trip to the local Dollarama and picked up a few supplies.


Two gerber daisy garlands ($1.25 each)...One pink and one yellow


and 2 pairs of children's flip flops ($1 each).


Since I like to re-invent my wreath for every season, I never use hot glue or anything else to affix things to the wreath.  It makes taking it apart and making another one so much easier!

I just attached the garlands by tucking them into the wreath.  Once they both were attached I had to figure out how I was going to make the flip flops stay on the wreath.  I found some shish-ka-bob skewers in my kitchen drawer and broke them down to about 4 inches.  Then I pushed it through the hole in the flip flop where the toe is.



Then I just pushed the skewer into the wreath.


It all went together in less than 10 minutes! Now that's my kind of project - instant gratification!!

And it makes a great SUMMER statement on my front door!




Are you adding some SUMMER accessories to your home yet??  I'd love to hear about what you're doing!!
