Kick Off Your Summer with a Craft!

Summer Kick Off!

Summer is just around the corner and the perfect time to start a summer craft! Kids are getting out of school, vacations are getting lined up and we’re all ready to relax a bit. Whether you have an exotic vacation planned or a staycation in your backyard with family, we all love summertime. We crave summertime when the temps are frigid, but before it’s over….you know we’ll be complaining and yearning for the cool weather of fall…..we can never be satisfied, can we!

Summer Project

One way you can start getting ready for summer is to make a cheerful summertime wreath for your front door. You may be thinking, oh I can’t do that. But you can! It’s really not that hard and you will love the satisfaction you get from making it yourself. Plus, you can save a few dollars too!

Here’s a link to a fun wreath tutorial that Nick Sanders, 39 County Home, did as a collaborative effort with Trendy Tree. The supply kit is still available (as of this posting) at Trendy Tree and I’ll give you that link. Watch the video below. It’s a Facebook live that Nick did on the Trendy Tree page.

Ruffle Wreath Tutorial

Nick used the ruffle wreath technique and it’s one of the simplest ways to make a Deco mesh wreath. It always comes out the same, nice and even, with no gaps or holes. Here’s the link to the supply kit:

Individual Supplies

I’m listing the individual supplies too since you might want to change something up a bit. There are so many sign choices on Trendy Tree.
