If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw my excitement over my newest wreath - my flamingo summer wreath!
I have been struggling for a while with what to do for our front porch post 4th of July. I really have almost every time of year covered except for this little time period after Independence Day and before Fall (evidence here). I had been saving a few ideas on Pinterest (below) with flamingos, and once my neighbor surprised me with one in my yard, I knew he had a purpose - a wreath!
I came home to this amazing little guy waiting for me! Thanks April! :)
See a full DIY on how I make wreaths here. I always start by collecting any ribbon and deco mesh from my stash that I may possibly want to use.
Then I start up on the "poufs"! :)
These colors make my heart happy!!
As I get further with the wreath I lay out next ideas before doing anything. Sometimes you just don't know what will work until you are ready for the next step! This ribbon was perfection, but I wasn't sure how to work it in.
So I laid out Mr Flamingo. I felt like the ribbon worked in would be too busy. How cute is my little helper, Sprinkles?
Once I got the flamingo in, he looked a little plain, so I made him a bow tie out of the ribbon. Problem solved!
Then I decided he needed a glitter eye (duh).
This is how I feel about flamingos right now. :)
Tada! This wreath was so simple and easy, but makes a big impact because of the bright colors!
Perfect for this stretch of summer! Are you flamingo obsessed, too?
