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.
