Coastal creme and blue wreaths are going to be all the rage this summer. With starfish and shells. And they are beautiful (I will show you my favorites soon – promise).
However, I am not ready for them yet. We had a surprisingly short and dry spring this year. It really felt like we went from winter straight to summer. I missed spring! So, when I decided to adorn our front door with a wreath, it seems that subconsciously I picked spring colors. My summer wreath looks suspiciously like a spring wreath.
In this tutorial, I will show you my DIY wreath and I will share a few tricks that help me when tackling wreaths.

I like the intrigue of upcycling items and giving them a new life. The whole thing puts our brains to use. What can we make? How can we make it happen? What does this item want to be? I love a quirky result, something surprising coming from unrelated items. Even better if it also has a practical use.
I had the remnant of a Lazy Susan cabinet that came broken when we installed our new kitchen. I also have an inconspicuous slice of wall by our front door that needs something narrow (flat) and practical. Like a mail center!
Do you know how sometimes we are in a creative hiatus? When we have ideas but somehow we keep procrastinating? The trick is to make something small from start to finish. It has to be something easy, a little quirky and quick to make.
With all the cold and snow, I was in such a hiatus so I decided to make something easy for our daughter’s nursery to hang above her crib. Like this wall mobile that you can make in 10 minutes. See how:
