Summer Wreath {Chevron & Burlap}

Good morning! Do you remember my super cute Ruffled Muslin Wreath that I made back in March? I loved it. But I had a problem. The western sun glares on my front door and coupled with the summer heat, the hot glue melted. So, the moss and rolled fabric flowers fall off all. the. time. It looks like an ugly, hot mess {trust me on this!}, so I had to do something about it.

I decided to whip up a quick Summer Wreath with some light aqua chevron fabric left over from my Summer Mantel. This one wouldn’t fall apart like it’s predecessor.

I made this wreath in no time at all. It’s simple and easy and anyone can do it!

Supplies needed:

  • Wreath form. {straw, styrofoam, pool noodle…whatever}
  • Fabric
  • Burlap ribbon {I found this for 50% off at Hobby Lobby}
  • Canvas pennant banner {also from HL…used my 40% coupon}
  • Jute twine
  • Scissors, glue sticks and glue gun

Cut 2.5″ wide strips of fabric. I used 6-7 strips cut perpendicular to the selvage. Wrap the wreath and secure fabric with hot glue as you go.

Create rolled burlap rosettes. I made one large and one small. I wanted this wreath to be simple. Not overdone or fancy.

I’ve tried to make rosettes out of burlap before and it doesn’t work well. They end up looking like straw hats with straw sticking out every-which-way. However, burlap ribbon has finished edges which is key to making pretty rolled flowers. I love the lightly printed design on the burlap too. :)

I attached the burlap rosettes with hot glue, but I also pushed straight pins through the flowers into the wreath. When the hot glue melts, the pins will hold the flowers in place.

I used some leftover jute twine to thread the pennant banner together. Then I used a sharpie to write “Happy Day” on it. At our house, we focus on being happy, doing joyful things and laughing a lot. I wanted to convey that spirit to whoever comes to our front door. :)

Here are a few extra pictures…

You may be wondering what the wreath is hanging on. It is my antique stove board. I usually use the planked side for a backdrop, but this time I went out on a limb and used the tin side. I love it!

That, my friends, is the Summer Wreath that will not fall apart. Humph. Take that glaring, hot, burning sun. You think I’m kidding? The front door handle gets so hot that I can’t touch it. I could bake a cake in the doorway in the afternoons. ;)

What’s hanging on your front door this Summer?

  1. Love this! We have that same problem with our door that faces west. It gets so hot the kids can’t even touch it! Any wreath just melts! I’m going to try a version of this! You’ve given me inspiration! Thank you!

  2. I was looking for something bright & fun (and also frugal) for a summer wreath make-over, and ended up hot gluing brigtly colored flip flops all over a wreath form–turned out really cute!

  3. This is beautiful! I must admit, gasp, that I’m not always sure about the chevron print – but THIS I love! I have a yarn Fourth of July wreath hanging on my door right now, but I am going to look for some chevron fabric to try making a wreath like this!

  6. Cute! I need to make a wreath for my front door but I haven’t decided which kind to make.

    About your front door — Do you have a porch? I have seen people hang curtains and tie them back when not in use.

  7. This is wonderful! I typically don’t have anything hanging on my door except for at Christmas time, but I may have to remedy that. I do adore chevron and I’m pretty certain I have some of this exact fabric from HL left over from making pillow covers last fall!

  8. Very pretty. Same thing happens here. In fact, even in the winter, temps below zero, the sun melted the glue on my snowman wreath. Ca-razy.
