Here is my new Summer Wreath

My girlfriend, Leah came over with some shakes & her boys today to craft with me!  We made our summer wreaths for our front doors.  Leah is also a fellow blogger who has amazing kid ideas, interior design ideas & interesting things that come her way!

I used all the inspirational photos that I shared with you all the other day to help me create my own Summer Wreath!  I got the girls to paint watercolors on card stock on the front & back of the flowers in our garden.  Then we cut out 6 - 4.25" squares & made the pinwheels.  I used leftover chevron fabric to create the ruffled sleeves.  I pinned & glued the pinwheels in place.  Then hot-glued the vintage buttons in place.  I wrapped the other two sides in some aqua fabric.  I used straight pins to hold all the fabric in place.  I am sooo happy to how it turned out.  Plus the girls' artwork is priceless!

Evelyn was so cute while I took pictures.  We exchanged kisses through the glass front door.  She thought it was hilarious!


  1. It turned out super cute! I love that the pinwheels are made from thier paintings... very sweet.

  2. Yes, I love the pinwheels!
