Memorial Day is this weekend, and that marks the unofficial start of summer! Get your home ready for the sunny days of summer with a warm summer wreath! We used a basic wreath and wrapped it with ribbon and jute to give it a fun nautical feel.
Wooden flat circular wreath
1.5” Heavy Apron Tape
Small Tubular Jute
1” Stitched Grosgrain
7/8” Grosgrain Ribbon
1. Take your apron tape and glue the tip down on the back of the wreath.
2. Start wrapping around the entire wreath until you meet the area you started with.3. With the excess tape create a continuing loop for hanging the wreath once it is complete. Glue the end to the back and cut excess.
4. Take your jute and glue the tip into the back of the wreath under the tape.
5. Wrap around wreath until you reach the end. Cut and glue tip into the tape behind the wreath.
6. Create two bows with the red and navy ribbon. Glue red one down and then the smaller navy one on top.

Welcome spring with a decor accent that highlights the colors of the season! We’ve made a pillow cover that’s perfectly pastel, and just the thing to brighten up your space after a chilly winter. We used Rit Dye to create a watercolor effect on the fabric by painting the dye on instead of dipping the fabric in.
What You’ll Need:
Plain canvas pillow case
Rit Dye powder (Fuchsia and Royal Blue)
1. Take three cups and fill with water at different depths. Add in dye so you have light, medium and dark shades of each color you are using.
2. Lay out your pillow and dip your paint brush into the dye. Create strokes going up and down making a cross-hatched pattern.
3. Wash and let dry.
Inspired by the beautiful colors of spring, we love the light and playful look of watercolors.
