Summer Burlap Pinwheel Wreath

Inspired by the yellow and turquoise colourway of the Paint-Dipped Camp Stools, I decided to make a fresh, bright summer wreath for my front door.  (Walk of shame… I still had my Father’s Day wreath hanging!)

I simply wrapped a styrofoam wreath form with strips of yellow fabric (cut and then washed so the ends would be frayed), securing the fabric with pins so the wreath from can be used again in the future.

I then made little pinwheels from 5 inch squares of burlap, securing the tips with hot glue.  I added an ulphostery tack in the center for some sparkle and painted the pinwheel tips with turquoise paint.

I added a welcome message on a small slate chalkboard purchased from Hobby Lobby, also painted turquoise…

I love how cheery this makes my front door… and I’m hoping to spread the sentiment to the rest of my entry soon.  Here’s a little sneak at another pinwheel touch…

I’m hoping to finish some more of the entry this week, but for now we’re a little occupied… our girls are home from their week long trip and we are enjoying our little family.

Life is good.

  1. I love this creative wreath. It's so fresh and summery.

  2. I just made my very first burlap project and now I am looking at all the links at the "burlap party". I thought it was funny that I used the same flowers in my basket as you have in your photos.


Talk to me! Your comments are the chips to my salsa... can't live without 'em! Thanks so much for taking the time to chat!
