Summer Lilac Wreath

Hi everyone! I wanted a new wreath for the front door, one that would really stand out for the summer. I think a pretty wreath creates a welcoming atmosphere for anyone who comes to our door.

The grapevine wreath was a wonderful dollar find at a garage sale, and it turned out to be the perfect size for this project. And it’s quite well made, so it will be around for the long term.

The two lilac stems came from a separate garage sale for the same price, just one dollar. The pinky-purpley color matches the flowers I have growing in my urns, which sit to either side of my front steps. I attached them to the wreath using a hot glue gun.

You may remember back in March I made some mossy spring monograms. Well, it turns out, it was just door perfect for this wreath, and I hung it with a piece of jute. I “stole” the burlap bow from my fall wreath(!).

I’m pleased with how the brightness of the lilacs makes it really stand out on my black door. And I do enjoy a nice wreath.

  10. Hi Diana, your wreathe is awesome. When the flowers and wreathe start looking tired, make sure they are clean, i.e., not dusty, and dry. Spray them with some clear laquer (the .98 kind from Wal-Mart is fine). The sheen on the wreathe will make you sure it is good for another 5 years and the flowers will look a bit more translucent and brighter. Some many people throw away perfectly good silks; I slosh them quickly in warm dishwater and let them air dry. I’m sure you already know the trick about using a curling iron to revive crushed bows (but not on the organza sheer ones (they melt). This is from the gardener with black thumbs who puts silk clematis (bought on clearance, of course) on my live vine and drapes morning glory garlands around my lamp post. Adds a bit of color with little effort and from even a a distance, no one knows. Ya gotta remember, I come from a Polish grandmother who painted the pink roses on her plastic rosebush red when she tired of the pink!
