We are loving all things SUMMER and enjoying our last few weeks of lazy mornings, swimming all day and no homework! Yep, school starts again July 25th! That may seem soon to a lot of you but we have great weather in fall and early spring so our schools give us off extra time during those seasons. Since we’ve been to the beach a few times this summer, we thought it would be cute to make a bright and cheerful wreath (we spotted this cute summer bicycle wreath as inspiration) using Waverly Inspiration’s pretty nautical themed fabric.
You’ll need a yard of fabric to wrap your wreath plus some scraps of coordinating fabric along with pretty ribbons and a few buttons.
You’ll also need a cute wooden bike, love this one from Pocketful of Paint, scissors and a hot glue gun + sticks.
I used 5 strips of 4″ fabric, each of them 18″ long.
I put a dab of hot glue on the backside of the foam wreath to get it started. I then dabbed the hot glue to the end of the first strip to adhere it to the beginning of the second strip, and so on until it was fully wrapped. Note: I kept the glue on the backside of the wreath so the front is cohesively “pretty”.
For the flowers, I ended up cutting out 3 daisy shapes of coordinating fabrics then hot glued white buttons inside the centers.
I hot glued the wood bicycle directly to the fabric wreath then hot glued the fabric flowers onto the cute little basket.
To hang your new wreath, simply tie a pretty bow in our favorite striped yellow ribbon, yeow…love it!
Easy, right? This took about an hour to whip together and I love it!
Just for fun, we hot glued the anchor fabric into a fabric flag banner to stick in my succulent planter for coordinating porch decor.
Hope you’ve been inspired today! XO
