Forsythia Summer Wreath Ideas
Yellow screams summer to me! It is warm, vibrant and inviting. It’s the color of sunshine and lemonade and lifts the spirit! When I see the forsythias bloom, I know summer is on its way. This forsythia summer wreath is a summer must have.
We are in the middle of the packing process for a cross-country move. We are living around many, many, have I mentioned many, boxes!! While we are in the midst of this, I just could not go without creating something. Obviously, my craft supplies have not entirely been packed yet. I have them in tubs. However, I just cannot bring myself to seal the lids just yet.
I wanted something simple to hang on an interior door for a couple of weeks so that the house is not completely devoid of decorations. While packing, I came across this garland that I used on our mantle last summer. I loved it there. However, I thought it would make a great wreath.
While I like the wreath just by itself, I had a package of basswood rectangles that I thought would make this wreath more fun. Two options are shown below.
- Forsythia garland
- Basswood craft rectangle
- Acrylic paint
- Floral wire
- Fishing line
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Sharpie marker (optional)
- Bend garland into round shape and wire together in various places to hold shape
- Paint wood rectangle with a base coat (optional)
- Add phrase of choice to rectangle with Sharpie, vinyl or paint
- Wrap fishing line around wreath in two places about 3 inches apart-glue ends to back of rectangle piece.
