Summer Wreath "Three Ways"


Hello everyone, 
It's time for a DIY simple wreath project.
I love having a wreath on my front porch all year long, but I can't afford to buy a new ready made wreath for every occasion. To solve the problem this year I'm making a small changes on the same wreath.  As you saw in my 4th of July post. HERE  I just added a few Dollar Tree flags to my existing Summertime Wreath. Ta Da!!

Started all this madness. 
An old sunburst grapevine wreath and two long stems of dogwood and the a burlap bow.  To add more texture to the wreath I added a neutral colored ribbon on the top of the burlap bow and a sprig of white fern. 
Now thru July and August I have morphed my Summertime wreath into a Summer Initial Wreath. I found my initial Y for my last name at Walmart for only $1.97 plus tax.  I painted the Y with black craft paint. and a new trick for me was to use a hot glue gun. I haven't used one very often and the first thing I did was burn my finger with the hot glue. I finally attached the initial to the wreath and let it dry. Ta Da!!
A simple DIY project and a new look to an old wreath.
I'm a new fan of the Hot Glue Gun.
Thanks for visiting My Cozy Corner. "Y" because I love you. LOL
I'm happy to be playing with my dishes today. The temps are going to be 111° high and dry...
Joyously,
Betty
