Summer Wreath – Simple and Inexpensive

IMG_2411

In follow up to a previous post written about Love the Home You Have, my friend and fellow blogger Amelia from You Can Always Start Now and I committed to doing some of the challenges listed in the book “Love The Home You Have”.

Our first challenge was to reclaim the dining room and I am proud to say that I still manage to have my table clutter free with a centrepiece on it one day per week – YAY!

Since it is summer and I enjoy being outside and I enjoy decorating my outdoor spaces, it was easy to decide on Challenge #14 Welcome Home. This is about what your front door says to you when you walk up to it each day, it should make you smile and say “welcome home”.  I enjoy changing the wreath on my door to complement the season, so this challenge was definitely one I knew I could complete.

Amelia and I decided not to share our ideas or pictures until after we completed our wreaths – we discovered great minds think alike, be sure to pop over to You Can Always Start Now and check out her wreath.IMG_2407

The hose was found discarded and all other items came from the Dollar Store!

For a bit of added whimsy, I added butterfly lights, they look better at dusk and unfortunately this picture does not do them justice.
