I am the kind of girl who always has a wreath hanging on her front door. Well, I've been a big time slacker (what's new?) and had left the front door bare for a few weeks after taking down my red, white and blue wreath for 4th of July. As it is already mid-August, I realize how silly it was to make a summery wreath, but the truth is, I am just not ready to admit Fall is on it's way.
I love the navy, yellow, and pink fabric leftover from my bench makeover, so I knew those bright colors would be perfect for this summer wreath.
Proof that things don't always turn out the way they are suppose to:
I purchased some navy blue ribbon to hang this wreath, but once I went to put it on the wreath, I realized how different the two navy blues were. No problem, I had some burlap downstairs that would work just fine. After hot gluing it on and taking some pictures, I decided that also was not the look I was going for. How about that gray chevron ribbon I used for the bow? Sure, except then it looked too matchy-matchy.
I left it, telling myself that it would grow on me, and it lasted one day before I was driving to Hobby Lobby for 50% off their ribbon. An hour and a half and 8 spools of ribbon later, I came home with yellow chevron ribbon you see pictured above. Instantly, I felt much more proud of my wreath.
The struggle is real, folks!
I am kind of in love with how it turned out. I could "ooh" and "ahh" over it all day, but who's got time for that?
Anyone else love to decorate their front door?
Do you ever have trouble deciding on small details with your projects?
