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!
