I Finally Made a Wreath!

My front door has been so naked without anything on it.  I don’t know why wreaths stress me out, but they do.  Then once I do it, it’s SO easy.  But all of those aisles at Hobby Lobby with strands of greenery and flowers everywhere just makes me nervous.  I’m a dork, I know.  I guess when there is too much of something, it just overwhelms me.

So, here is what I got.

Since I like real hydrangeas and daisies, that’s what I got for my wreath (the fake ones of course).  Put those 2 together along with some greenery and you get this…

I am by no means a wreath expert and will never claim to be, but I think it turned out pretty!  At least our door is dressed appropriately now.  :)  Wreaths are so easy, seriously.  Just pull the flowers off the stems and hot glue them on the wreath.  And according to this picture, I need to glue on another daisy in that empty spot.  Oops!  And hopefully I will overcome my fear of “too many fake flowers at Hobby Lobby to choose from” one day so I can make seasonal wreaths. :)

Here’s one more shot.

I’ll be showing you soon our front door entryway area.  I’ve been sprucing it up! :)

  1. That is beautiful…and since I also need something for my front door and those flowers are perfect…I am SOOO copying you! Plus the hydrangeas are the perfect color that match my front door. I can’t put anything on the door itself as we have a storm door, but it goes on the wall next to it.

  2. So summery! I love it!

  3. Emily it turned out so precious! Great job!

    I just ordered a new wreath for our front door as well. I’m sure I overpaid but I do suffer from the anti craft gene. *Smiles* I don’t even own a hot glue gun.

    Have a wonderful day. ~Melissa :)

  4. It turned out really cute! It’s very summery looking.


  5. very cute! Come visit my anniversary celebration!!!!!!!!!

  6. Purty! A good thing to do, fyi, is hot glue a strip of felt around the back so’s it won’t scratch your door. Learned this the hard way. Once you get started with wreaths, it’s hard not to change ’em up a lot with the seasons or holidays and is cheap and fun! Good job!

  7. That’s a really pretty wreath! I need to make something for my naked front door as well. I was thinking of making one of the fabric strip wreaths that I have been seeing but not sure how it will hold up to the weather. Thanks for sharing!


    • Thanks Desiree! I would have loved to make one of those cool wreaths everyone is making nowadays too, but it didn’t seem practical to put outside. :( But there’s always room for inside! :)

  8. It turned out beautiful and it does look so summery!

  9. Thanks for stopping by!
    Those mini dutch ovens were brand new..still in the box from TJ Maxx!
    Love the wreath..I need something on my door as well & can never make a decision what to put up so it just stays empty!
    Great job1

  10. I like the wreath! Good combination of flowers. I’m excited to see your front door entry way. I need some ideas:)

  11. Blue and white are such a favorite color combination for me. AND I love hydrangeas and daisies! Such a pretty summer wreath!

  12. I love the daisies and hydrangeas – great choices! It looks wonderful on your dark-colored door, too!

  23. I love your wreath! I’m the same, terrified of all those flowers at HobLob. Since I have a wreath form exactly like yours (with no idea what to do with it), I will go to HobLob and find a few flowers/greens I like and hot glue ’em on. You are my motivation! Thanks!
