Summer "wreaths"!!


I love creating wreaths for my double front doors but sometimes they give me fits!! I wanted something different but finding two vessels that are the same and then coming up with an idea for both can be difficult.

This is what I came up with!! I love how they "pop" on my black doors!!

I scoured Ebay, my local thrift stores and GoodwillI found these metal planters and thought they just might work!

They lay flat against my doors but I added some rubber pads to the back to protect the glass from the metal.

I cut some florist foam in half and hot glued them to the bottom of the planter.

I found some simple burlap type flowers on sale (50%) at Michaels. Three was the perfect fit. I finished them off with some pretty red flowers found at Hobby Lobby!!

By adding a simple white burlap ribbon, which I thread thru the back of the container and tied in a simple bow at the wreath holder, my "wreaths" were finished!!!

    I too have double doors and I secure my floral containers similiar to these with Velcro strips that have very sticky backs and they work great. I am able to remove them and use new ones as I change my arrangements.

    I love your front doors themselves....where did you purchase them?
