I’m super excited to share my summer nautical wreath today!
Summer time is upon us and I am looking forward to lots of beach days, grilling out, and just enjoying the California sunshine. Are you ready for summer?
You guys are in for a HUGE treat because today, I’m kicking off 11 days of Summer a Summer Celebration Series. (Check out that line up!) Over the next 11 days, my friends and I are going to be sharing some fantastic summer projects! Sound good?
Let’s get this party started, shall we?
If you’ve been around here a while you may have noticed that I enjoy nautical themed decor. As a part of my summer decor, I created a summer nautical wreath. I’m sharing a simple tutorial here so you can make your own!
Supplies: Wreath form or a dollar store pool noodle, tape, navy and white yarn, sisal rope, ribbon and burlap for embellishment.
If you have a wreath form you are ready to start wrapping. If you are using a pool noodle you’ll need to cut about 6 inches or so off your noodle (I used a bread knife) and then form a circle and tape the two ends together.
Next you’ll want to mark off four quarters of your wreath so your yarn sections will be somewhat even. Then you can get started wrapping. Dab a little hot glue to the back of the wreath to hold the yarn in place and start wrapping. Once you’ve gotten to the quarter mark, cut the yarn, dab a little hot glue to finish off that section. Repeat for the other three sections. Place your sisal rope in between the sections (you’ll also want to hot glue the sisal rope in place).
Now your wreath will look something like this. Ready for embellishment.
The little package of ribbon came from Michaels. The colors are perfect for a nautical wreath!
To embellish the wreath, I hung the ribbons banner style with a little bit of hot glue and then created a little burlap bunting with “Welcome Aboard.” The burlap bunting was just scraps cut into little triangles about an inch and a half in size.
I’m totally loving the summery nautical look!
We are all ready for summer over here! My friend April from House By Hoff is sharing another awesome summer project tomorrow, be sure to pop in you won’t want to miss it!
