DIY Spring/Summer Wreath

This is one of those times when I actually made something I pinned on Pinterest! Thanks to this pin, I was inspired to spruce up our front door with a little spring/summer decor. Here's how I made it in case you want to make one of your own.

The supplies: 
Grapevine wreath - $2.99
Forsythia pick - $2.99
Wooden letter - $2.99
Craft paint (had on hand)
Hot glue gun (had on hand)

I know it's weird that all the supplies were $2.99, but I got it all at Michael's and I think I used a coupon for a few of the things (I made this wreath a while back so I don't remember). 

First, I painted the wooden letter with a few coats of craft paint. I chose green so it would pick up on the green leaves in the forsythia.
While the paint was drying, I removed the individual stems from the forsythia pick and began tucking them into the grapevine wreath. 

I kept going until half of the wreath was covered with forsythia. They tucked into the wreath pretty nicely, so I didn't have to hot glue any of them in place. But if you're a little more OCD about things like that, then you might want to hot glue a few of the looser ones. 

After that, it was a little bit of a challenge to hot glue the wooden letter in place, since it didn't exactly lay flat on the wreath. Eventually I got it to stay though, and voilĂ ! The final result: 

I added some white polka dots to the letter to make it more visually appealing, and simply because I'm obsessed with polka dots. I love how it turned out!

So there you have it! A really easy and cheap spring/summer DIY project. Have you made anything you pinned from Pinterest lately? If you want more wreath inspiration, be sure to check out my No More Nekked Door pinboard!
