DIY: Summer Wreaths

Share
By Katy Sommerfield

It’s hard to believe that summer is already here. It seems like winter was only yesterday, and yet here we are in the dog days of summer! If you’re like me, you might have accidentally left out some winter or spring decor a little too long.

It’s time for a summer upgrade!

Check out these three lovely DIY summer wreaths that will save you money and stun your guests at your next barbeque. 


Hoop Wreath


Supplies needed:

  • 12-inch hoop wreath or embroidery wreath
  • Faux eucalyptus sprays or other greenery
  • Faux flowers of your choosing 
  • Floral tape

Step one: Attach greenery

Use the floral tape to attach the eucalyptus sprays to your wreath. 


Step two: Attach flowers

Use the floral tape again to arrange and attach your faux flowers.


This wreath is simple and very pretty. You can either cover the entire hoop wreath with florals and greenery or opt for a more simplistic look by leaving most of the hoop uncovered. 

 

Lemon Wreath


Supplies needed:

  • 16- or 18-inch grapevine wreath
  • 1-2 packs of faux lemons
  • Faux lemon leaf sprays
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors

Step one: Cut the stems

Use your scissors to cut the stems off your lemon leaf sprays. You want individual leaf picks instead of a larger spray.


Step two: Arrange the leaves

Arrange the leaf picks how you like them and insert them into the grapevine wreath. Use hot-glue to attach the leaves to the wreath.


Step three: Arrange the lemons

Arrange the lemons onto your wreath. Use hot-glue to attach the lemons to the wreath.


This lemon wreath is vibrant and classic. If you would like, you can add a bow or other adornments to this wreath to take it up a notch.

 

Succulent Wreath


Supplies needed:

  • Faux succulents
  • Grapevine wreath
  • Scissors
  • Package of preserved moss
  • Floral fern pins
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Step one: Trim the succulents

Clip off excess stems or leaves on your succulents. Make sure you leave enough of a stem to be able to insert the succulents into the wreath.


Step two: Add a mossy layer

Using the hot glue gun, add a layer of moss to your wreath.


Step three: Arrange and attach succulents

Arrange the succulents in a fashion you like, and attach them to the wreath using the hot glue gun.


Step four: Use floral pins

Floral pins can help keep your succulents in place. Use them to attach your faux succulents to the wreath. 


Succulents have been some of the most popular house plants for years now. This wreath is a unique expression of the trend and will add whimsy to your home.
