DIY Summer Wreath!

Hopefully wherever you live now you’re feeling the effects of summer! Here in Florida, it’s HOT. I’m eternally grateful for air conditioning, that’s for sure! But I’m also eternally grateful to live near the beach! We’re near enough to be able to go over to the beach for a long or short weekend (this past Saturday we spent the afternoon and evening at John’s Pass) but far enough away that our insurance premiums aren’t “coastal”! It’s a beautiful thing!

So when I decorated my Summer Holiday Shelf this month, I did it “beachy”! Did you see it? If not, CLICK HERE to see what I’m rambling on about. But what I ran into was that I couldn’t find any kind of beachy door decor. I like to hang something that coordinates with the shelf on the inside of the front door, since it’s right next the shelf. After a few days of searching all my favorite spots, I listened to my husband (who constantly tells me, if you can’t find what you like, just make it yourself like you do everything else!) and decided to make it myself. I thought I’d share with all of you, too, because it was super easy!

Here’s my “ingredients”:
