6 buck summer wreath. Heck yes.
Check out the view as you approach:
So, six bucks for the wreath. Months ago I was at the Dollar Tree and they had bunches of gerbera daisies that I thought didn't look too bad. I think I got 3 bunches. A few days after that, I started making this wreath and realized I would not have enough. So back to the Dollar Tree, where I got the last 3 bunches. Whew.
To make it, all I did was take a straw wreath I had lying around (it seems like craft stores always run out of them, so I bought three last time I saw them), used needle nose pliers to trim the flower stems to 3 or 4 inches, and then just stuck them in the wreath form. I didn't even use glue.
I did another thing pretty recently-
Also, you can see why I wanted a big planter in this spot. Mike tore out the wood staircase early this year (or maybe late last year) and the spots that were covered by it before are now exposed and ugly. Since we're not repainting until the fall, hopefully the plants in that blue planter will grow and cover that yucky spot. I'll cover the other yucky spot under the door with a board.
