Summer Sunflower Wreath

Welcome Summer!

Have you officially welcomed Summer into your beautiful home?
For us, a big, bright, happy sunflower wreath to greet you when you walk in the door is how we chose to welcome Summer! 

Now that we took down our Sunflower Mantel, we were not ready to entirely put away our friendly sunflowers we decorated with. And it has been some time since we did a welcome wreath so, that is what we did. 

This is what the Summer Sunflower Wreath used to look like.
We removed the flowers from the wreath leaving the stems on. We took our sunflowers and removed the heads from their stems and attached them to the stems on the wreath where the other flowers use to be. We used approximately 25-30 sunflowers on the wreath.

We love this idea of an interchangeable wreath for any holiday, season or occasion!
We are keeping all the flowers we removed and the stems so they can be reused again in the future.

Now that we are decorating for the Fourth of July, we thought it would be fun to add a little red, white and blue to the wreath.

We added in a few flag picks.

Now that you have seen how we are welcoming Summer into our home, we would love to know how you welcome in Summer!
Be inspired. Get creative!

Cast out the scoffer, and contention will leave;
Yes, strife and reproach will cease.
Proverbs 22:10
