How to Make This Fun and Fanciful Pink Flamingo Wreath for Summertime

4 Materials
2 Hours

Head on out to your local Dollar Tree for almost everything you will need for this fun summer wreath! Thanks for stopping by! If you would like to see more of crafts you can see them at Celebrate & Decorate!

Grab an 18 inch straw wreath form and some pink dollar store leis. Can’t you tell this is going to be a fun project already?!

Get a good number of floral pins, also known as greening pins. You are going to use those to attach the leis to your straw wreath form.

Attach the leis, one at a time beginning around the outside edge of the wreath.

As you get to the end of one lei, just begin with the next one.

When you have attached all eight of the leis to the straw wreath forms, you will have a wreath that looks like this.

Your dollar store flamingos are going to come with a couple of wire legs like this one shown above.

Cut the wire in half.

Take each half of the wire and secure it with some hot glue into the hole in the bottom of each of one of the flamingos.

Use the wires you attached to the bottom of the flamingos to stick down through the straw wreath to secure your flamingos to your wreath as shown in the black circle above.

Position your flamingos something like this as shown above. This is already looking like a fun flamingo wreath! We are going to take it a step further and make it our own pink flamingo wreath with a little something extra!

I felt like if I had flamingos I had to have some tropical flowers. Plumeria and hibiscus just seemed like the perfect addition. I was able to find a couple of bushes that had stiff stems.

The stiff stems made it possible for me to just stick the flowers right into the straw wreath!

My own flamingo wreath is ready to hang on my front door and become the star of my front porch this summer!
